Pestana Hotel Group will build a new Pousada de Portugal located in the historic centre of Vila Real de Santo António, in the most eastern area of the Algarve, thus continuing its investment in the Portuguese region.
This investment will provide the historic heritage building with 57 rooms, 114 beds and create 30 new jobs. The official opening is scheduled for summer 2018.
Luís Castanheira Lopes highlighted the historic nature of the new Pousada, saying: “The Pestana Hotel Group will restore the buildings in full harmony with its architectural relevance allowing visitors to experience its very rich cultural legacy, a core characteristic at the heart of the Pousadas de Portugal brand DNA that celebrates 75 years in 2017.”
This will the be the fourth Pousada de Portugal in the Algarve and the 17th Pestana unit in the region. There are currently 16 Pestana units in the Algarve, 13 Pestana Hotels & Resorts and 3 Pousadas de Portugal (Palácio de Estói in Faro, Fortaleza de Sagres and Convento de Tavira).
