Six Senses Spa Douro Valley

A union of nature and Portuguese tradition wedded to the elements of water, stone and wood


Occupying a hillside 19th-century manor house, Six Senses Douro Valley is uniquely positioned in the oldest demarcated wine region worldwide, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the shores of northern Portugal’s Douro River. Nature and Portuguese wellness traditions coincide in its expansive 2,200-square-meter Six Senses Spa, an elegant oasis designed with water, stone, and wood accents. Whether spa-goers indulge in signature à la carte services, grape- and wine-based locally inspired rituals, or multi-day programs, they can complement their visit with time in the indoor and outdoor pools, at the refreshment bar, or in the full-service gym.
An on-site interactive wine cellar and dining options celebrate the Douro Valley, and a distinct menu of rooms, suites, and villas—some with private pools and gardens—welcome rest and relaxation. Four hours from Lisbon, Douro Valley is an idyllic starting point to the region’s charming villages, historic churches and castles, and award-winning vineyards.

A flight of ceremonial stairs and a wall adorned with lit candles welcome guests to the Six Senses Spa Douro Valley. Textured concrete walls balance light gray and sand-toned upholstery, creating a natural, sophisticated ambience. Ten treatment rooms overlooking gardens, water features, and verdant rolling valleys add to the tranquil atmosphere, while the reception area and oversized indoor pool promote a sense of social spa-going.

On the menu, guests will find signature Six Senses massage, facials, body treatments, and locally inspired therapies, all of which utilize products from The Organic Pharmacy. Options include the Complete Grape Rejuvenation, a 90-minute ritual combining a body exfoliation and therapeutic soak that celebrates the beneficial properties of grapes. The spa team is also dedicated to providing a path towards a healthier lifestyle with multi-day yoga programs: Yogic Sleep, Discover Yoga, and Yogic Detox.
