Welcome to Bussaco Palace Hotel

Bussaco Palace Hotel

The 5 stars Palace Hotel do Bussaco is unique! Be a guest in the palace of the Portuguese kings. Amongst the most beautiful and historical hotels of the world, the Palace Hotel do Bussaco has all the features of the dreamer's ¿romantic palace¿ - set in an enchanted forest, high on a hill, and resplendent in its decorative Manueline-Gothic architecture. This legendary palace, built by the last kings of Portugal in 1885, was converted into a deluxe hotel in 1917, providing the very best of Portuguese hospitality. In the heart of the Serra do Bussaco hills, in Luso Coimbra, the Hotel is surrounded by the luxuriant Forest of Bussaco, a forest planted by Carmelites in the 17th century within a walled area of 105 hectares, where rare plants from all over the world and the mystical and monastic atmosphere created by the numerous Carmelite buildings combine to create a matchless and sumptuous botanical park of international renown. All rooms feature period furniture, in styles ranging from 18th century to Art Nouveau, all having fine Portuguese cotton bed and bath linens. Guest rooms have a private bathroom, satellite TV and direct dial telephone. The hotel has one of the greatest restaurants in Portugal in a truly palatial atmosphere enhanced by the magnificent paintings by Joo Vaz which illustrate voyages from the epic poem The Lusiads, the beautiful Moresque ceiling, the exotic wood floor, and the royal gallery. As well as classic French cuisine, the restaurant also offers traditional Portuguese dishes, including local specialities such as fisherman's stew, roast suckling pig, roast kid, kid braised in wine, as well as regional sweets.
