In Evora, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage City, there is a unique convergence of ancient and modern spirit at the Convento do Espinheiro Hotel & Spa. Alentejo is known as the breadbasket of Portugal, and its picturesque fields roll as far as the eye can see. Vineyards, cheese farms, and olive orchards make the area's cuisine as famous as it is delectable, while historical churches and monuments create a rich cultural experience. Here you will find this luxurious hotel and spa that was once a convent. Set in beautiful gardens, the 15th-century building makes a wonderful home for a hotel unlike any other.
92 magnificent rooms are divided between a modern wing and the ancient convent. The decor is luxurious with tasteful combinations of new and old, ancient and modern. Themes extend to the gourmet restaurant Divinus, located in the original wine cellar, where Mediterranean cuisine with Alentejo flavors is served. The bar Pulpitus, is found in the monk's kitchen. For pleasures of a physical kind, Diana Spa includes six treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool and health club, an outdoor swimming pool, and a tennis and paddle court.

Reviews for Convento do Espinheiro Hotel & Spa
My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool (in the distance). The bed and pillow were very comfortable. The staff were very helpful, friendly and professional. Wine tasting was offered each night in the cellar at 6pm. A very interesting and informative tour of the convent is offered each night at 5pm. The hotel is privately owned and new rooms have been added and renovations done. The old part is still very interesting to see. One interesting point to make is that even though it is called a convent, there has never been any nuns there, only monks. They are buried outside in unmarked graves but the aristocracy are buried in the beautiful church in crypts and under the floor. The buffet breakfast was very nice, as was the freshly squeezed juice every morning. We had dinner there one night which was very nice. The service was excellent. Wines were recommended, explained and served by the sommelier. We were given a pennyroyal liquor on the house then another drink was suggested. I wasn't sure if this was also on the house but when we got the bill, it was over 10 euros per glass! It was too cold to use the swimming pool unfortunately. We did go to the spa on 2 occasions. We had facials and massages. 100 euros for a one and a half hour facial. All very nice as were the staff and ambience of the salon. The restaurant and spa are expensive but we knew they would be and decided to treat ourselves. If we were closer to town, we probably would have used the spas' and restaurants there. It is a 10 minute drive into Evora and costs about 8 euros in a taxi-more at night.

Located outside the old town - this is an old convent spread over a nice garden. Nicely restored, they have added new wings that have modern updated rooms with everything you expect in a luxury hotel. The staff were warm & welcoming - very helpful in making suggestions & reservations for places to visit & restaurants etc. They have an excellent restaurant - the food was delicious & Michelin starred. Breakfast is served each morning in the same location & was varied & plentiful. They have an outdoor pool & the spa services are fine. We tried out their massage & the masseuse was very good. Overall - we spent 3 nights here & enjoyed it very much. Free parking & the ease of which to get around the area was also good.

Beautiful old history rich convent . Spg platinum recognition on all fronts including suite upgrade (which we needed after a long transatlantic journey )by friendly and helpful staff . Perfect breakfast. Convenient close to UNESCO evora city . We would always come back when in Portugal . I would upgrade indoor/outdoor pool and gym a bit (luxury collection....) but otherwise perfect.

I chose this Hotel for a three nights stay in early December. It is located around 4 km from the center of Ă‰vora, in what was previously a Convent, that was fully restored. We spent the mornings basically discovering every corner of this unique Hotel and all its pieces of art - being the highlight the Chapel - and in the afternoon we would visit Ă‰vora. Breakfast is included and is very good (apart from the waiting, but we were there for a long weekend, and they were clearly full). We were given a classic room and a design room, and the latest was clearly more recent, and had a nespresso machine (that I missed in the classic room). Both rooms had all the necessary amenities, including a robe for a child, much appreciated, and rare to find even in 5 stars hotels. The large balconies had nice views of the surroundings. Wifi was free of charge and worked fine. Service was impeccable. The indoor pool was a tad bit cold for me, but the Jacuzzi was perfect. There is also a small gym available. We had a very enjoyable stay!

Although we didnâ€™t stay at the hotel, we stopped to have lunch at their restaurant. Very elegantly decorated, superb food, exquisitely presented. Impeccable service. I plan to return there at the very first opportunity....
