Penha Longa Logotype

Penha Longa Logotype

Even before The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company lavished its five star luxury treatment on one of Portugal's favourite resorts, Penha Longa carried its monogram – based on the initials of a historic monestary – with customary Latin pride.

Thomas Manss & Company's redesign manages to combine the classical traits of this long-standing tradition with a timeless elegance, that not only reflects the property's monastery origins but also attracts young urbanites looking for a dash of contemporary cool.

Penha Longa Resort

Penha Longa means "Long Rock" and ever since Friar Vasco Martins chose to build his original 14th century monastery here, this Portuguese beauty spot has become the favourite retreat for the country's Royalty and foreign dignitaries.

Set amongst the rolling hills of Sintra, close to the hustle and bustle of the capital Lisbon and the Estoril coast, the Ritz-Carlton run resort sports one of Europe's top championship golf courses designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones Jr.

Guest are treated to five star luxury accommodation and a selection of fine dining experiences at Japanese restaurant Midori and at Arola – chef Sergi Arola's take on 'post-modern cuisine'.
