Vila Foz Hotel & Spa is heaven on earth. Located in the Atlantic Ocean Coast and at only 20min of the heart of the city of Porto, Portugal The interior design project is the highlight of the venue. Signed by Nini Andrade Silva, he prizes for refinement and sophistication. The architect kept the details created in the 19th century when the building was built and combined them with the luxury and elegance of today.
The Onice rooms – 24 double or twin – are luxurious offerings, all with shower. The Onice Sea View are 35 double or twin rooms, with balcony and sea view, also with shower.

The gastronomic experience is divided into two restaurants: the Vila Foz, of fine dining, emphasizing the fish and seafood of the coast; and the Flor de Lis, of local and seasonal gastronomy with a sophisticated but relaxed touch. Both are managed by chef Arnaldo Azevedo.
To combine the aristocratic elements with what is modern in order to leave the environments timeless, Nini bet on subtle contrasts between pastels and nudes and the green and brown colours that leave the light of space more vivid. The result was harmony and balance between the old and the new, leaving the aesthetics inspiring.
