Small Luxury Hotels of the World has added three news hotels in Europe to its portfolio—all with “epic landscapes,” according to the collection. The new additions include:
Quinta Da Comporta Wellness Retreat (Comporta, Portugal) – Opens March 15
Located in the heart of Comporta’s village, Quinta da Comporta is a new sustainable project by renowned Portuguese architect Miguel Câncio Martins. Set on a 17-hectare estate, surrounded by umbrella pines and cork trees, wild sand dunes, rice fields and nearly 40 miles of white-sand beaches, the hotel has whitewashed walls and cool-toned touches. Each room has a beach hut feel, with rustic-style furniture and sun-bleached woods. The restaurant serves organic and fresh produce that is locally sourced and harvested in the hotel’s Bio Garden. Rising out of the rice fields just over the heated infinity pool, Oryza Spa uses rice as the core element of inspiration, sourcing its health and holistic benefits through the development of innovative treatments and products that are exclusive to the spa.
Hotel Schweizerhof (Zermatt, Switzerland) – Reopened December 21, 2018
Recently acquired by Michel Reybier, the Schweizerhof Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn in the Alps has reopened with a “warm and bold” new style, including soft rugs and wood. Some of the in-room technology includes Chromecast devices for screen mirroring, Netflix and Spotify account access, smart lighting control and RFID room keys. A client app also enables guests to book their table and pay their bill, book spa treatments, open their room, speak with the in-house teams, reserve ski equipment and check the slope conditions. The Spa by Schweizerhof offers a list of spa treatments created with cosmeceutical products from Nescens. Guests will also have access to an indoor swimming pool, three saunas open 24/7, a Turkish bath and a fitness center, while yoga masterclass and private fitness coach are also available.
