Travel + Leisure 2014

The jury of world travel experts in Travel + Leisure (T + L) elected Pedras Salgadas Spa & Nature Park, in Vila Real district, as the Best Design Resort of the Year.

The 13 cottages and tree houses of this resort step lightly on the land, the latter stretching their long forms out into the forest like elegant praying mantises, the better to bask in and honor a pristine environment of centuries-old trees and hot springs. The wood-and-slate modular structures, assembled on site to adjust their footprints to the individual terrain, are otherwise generous in design. Large plate-glass windows pitch guests into the treetops, while skylights above beds perfectly capture the stars.
