CASCAIS, Portugal — Today Hilton (NYSE: HLT) announced the opening of its newest European property, Legacy Hotel Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton – marking the latest addition to its rapidly growing boutique collection brand. The intimate 59-room hotel perfectly blends modern distinct design with opulent glamour, a nod to the area’s famed past and regal heritage as a much-loved summer retreat of royalty and European nobility, dating back to 1890 with King Louis I. 

Legacy Hotel Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton is an ideal base for exploring everything this idyllic town has to offer and is only 28 kilometers from Lisbon, the enchanting Portuguese capital, easily reachable by car or public transport. Situated in the heart of Cascais, the hotel is just a short walk away from the rich culture of the old town and the stunning long beaches of the Portuguese Riviera, with plenty for guests to enjoy all year round thanks to the region’s mild temperatures. Must-see attractions include The Conde de Castro Guimaraes Museum, Boca do Inferno, Palácio da Cidadela de Cascais, and the Cascais Marina, all of which are within easy reach. For thrill-seekers, the resort town along the coast of the Atlantic is also a hotspot for surfing and sailing, with a buzzing nightlife thanks to an array of luxury restaurants and bars around the marina. Cascais is also home to Casino Estoril, which inspired Ian Flemming’s Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel.  

The newly opened hotel boasts a sophisticated design with contemporary furnishings and elegantly appointed rooms, many of which feature balconies with breathtaking views overlooking the ocean. Alongside both indoor and outdoor pools, the hotel also offers a tranquil spa escape for guests to rejuvenate mind, body and spirit. Legacy Spa by Wake is equipped with three treatment rooms and a sauna as well as a modern fitness centre.  

Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890 at Legacy Hotel Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton, blends the traditional dishes of the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi coast with an innovative approach and the best local Portuguese ingredients to bring a taste of Italy to Cascais. Guests can sample Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890’s culinary delights whilst enjoying the decadent design of the restaurant and bar or soak in the sun’s rays on the connecting private patio.  

“We are excited to continue to expand our Curio Collection by Hilton brand across Europe, adding hotels in sought-out destinations like Cascais, known for its rich history and picturesque beaches,” said David Kelly, senior vice president, Continental Europe, Hilton. “Opening as our tenth hotel in Portugal, Legacy Hotel Cascais, Curio Collection by Hilton marks a significant milestone for Hilton, reiterating our confidence and commitment to the Portuguese market, where we have more than doubled our portfolio in the last five years.”
