Origins

Built in the 1890s, the Sintra Marmoris Palace was the private residence of the family’s grandmother and grandfather - famed for their work in the marble stone industry. Re-opened in May 2017, the private house has been lovingly restored into a beautiful marble-clad boutique hotel with 9 charming rooms from which to explore Sintra-Cascais Natural Park and all its wonders.

The Review

Talk us through the whole stay from when you arrived to when you left. Descriptive, yet short and concise. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Sintra-Cascais natural park, the big wooden gates slid open to welcome me into the Sintra Marmoris Palace. Across the perfectly manicured garden and patio, I was welcomed into the main house and led into their dining room for a welcome drink with stunning views up to Sintra’s Moors Castle on the hill. Carlos came over to give me all the best local tips with charm and excitement, before showing me to my suite - a little palace all to myself with marble features, dark wood, and gold detailed furniture that oozed class, comfort, and elegance. I felt like a prince right away. The rest of the stay floated by in princely comfort - a stroll around the impressive private gardens, walking distance to all Sintra’s top sights outside, and returning back to the palace for a heated swim, warm marble-clad bath, room service with fresh food on gold platters, a film on the plasma TV hidden inside a gold ornate mirror, and a giant velvet-clad bed that swallowed me in comfort. The only thing I had to do was wake up for a breakfast of salmon, eggs, and champagne - with the same stunning view of Sintra hill beyond. The team were nothing but helpful and charming, and the whole place fit seamlessly and authentically into Sintra’s natural surroundings. I could feel the history and love that had gone into restoring this private home into the elegant boutique hotel that it is today. Truly a mini palace in Sintra, fit for a Prince and Princess to enjoy.
