The project is a strategic partnership between the Portuguese group Investaureum and Anantara, with the aim of transforming a former 15th century monastery into a five-star luxury hotel. Anantara aims to bring its experience and authentic luxury to this beautiful property.


Broadway Malyan, a global architecture, urbanism and design studio will lead the interior design with the aim of preserving the history of the existing building and respecting the vast heritage of Vila Viçosa, while creating a relaxing and sophisticated retreat.
