AlmaLusa Hotels Opens New Property in Portugal’s Comporta

AlmaLusa Comporta has opened its doors to welcome visitors. The hotel is located in the village of Comporta on Portugal’s west coast. Like its sister hotel in Lisbon, AlmaLusa Baixa/Chiado, the sustainably minded AlmaLusa Comporta reflects the spirit of its surroundings.

The hotel has 53 rooms, including 31 suites, as well as an AlmaLusa Café and The RoofTop Bar. Just over an hour outside of Lisbon, the fishing and rice-producing village of Comporta offers secluded beaches, restaurants, local boutiques and scenic trails.

Of its 22 guestrooms, many offer balconies, private gardens and terraces, while each is individually designed with coastal-chic interiors and color palettes. The 31 suites, each with a small kitchen, are ideal for guests looking for a more private holiday, including the advantage of being able to access the hotel’s dining and leisure facilities.

Headed by Miguel Lopes, a 29-year-old Alentejo local with experience spanning several regional restaurants, the hotel will debut low-key offerings focusing on the region.

By day, guests can sample locally inspired snacks from the AlmaLusa Café or on the Pool Terrace in warmer weather. By night, The Rooftop Bar will serve evening tapas, light dishes and cocktails, paired with music, courtesy of a resident DJ. During cooler months, the hotel’s Library Bar will provide cozy corners for retreat after a day’s exploration. Each morning, the Duna Room will serve a healthy breakfast, with fresh seasonal produce and home-made pastries.

Fitness enthusiasts can train with local HIIT and yoga instructors on the Rooftop Wellness terrace. A range of classes and private PT sessions are also available. These are complemented by an off-site running track—the surrounding beaches and dunes. A Spa Suite will offer elemental herbology treatments all year around, with outdoor spa cabanas available on sunnier days.

Dedicated to championing the local community, AlmaLusa Comporta highlights the local neighbors, as well as the area’s beauty through partnerships with artists. The concierge team is at hand to assist guests with customized trips–from Alentejo wine tastings and guided dolphin and bird watching experiences, to trekking in the Serra de Grandola mountains.

The hotel’s e-bikes or e-scooters offer a fun way to explore the landscape, and winter is considered the best time to surf the area’s swells. Nature enthusiasts can explore Sado Estuary, encompassing sandbanks, rice paddies and woodland, plus bird species including flamingos and storks. Dolphin pods are particularly plentiful in the cooler months.

The neighboring village of Melides welcomes guests with its beach, art galleries, sandstone cliffs and a deep blue lagoon which locals swim in all year round.

AlmaLusa is mindful of its carbon footprint and surroundings. The building is a conversion of a pre-existing structure, and solar panels power much of its electricity. Car-free visits are encouraged with transfers available from rail and ferry terminals, with e-bikes and e-scooters available on site. All suppliers have been chosen based on their commitments to the environment, even down to the laundry partner whose method uses 80 percent less water.
