Located in the heart of Lisbon, Tivoli Avenida Liberdade is the grand dame of the Portuguese capital’s historic hotels. A true landmark in the city, delivering 5-star service since 1933, Tivoli Avenida Liberdade has always been the place to see and be seen, a chic meeting point for celebrities, heads of state, and royalty.
The hotel recently underwent a magnificent €15 million refurbishment, featuring suite facelifts, reimagined restaurant concepts, and the addition of a new destination spa.
Step into the hotel’s welcoming lobby, and you’ll find yourself bathing in natural light and soft colours. The open concept space is crowned by a glass dome featuring a delicately woven golden trellis. The plush furnishings are comfortable and welcoming, in rich tones of mahogany and turquoise. Freshly cut flowers offer a sweet perfume while at the bar handsome mixologists shake up cocktails…best enjoyed in the evening as a local band serenades into the wee hours.
After spending hours on your feet exploring Lisbon’s parks, shops and museums enjoy a slice of R&R at Tivoli Avenida Liberdade’s Anantara Spa. This relaxing urban oasis offers a pathway to holistic wellbeing where healing sensuality combines with ancient far-eastern therapies and indigenous Portuguese rituals. Anantara Spa features six treatment rooms, sauna, fitness centre, and well-appointed change rooms. The spa’s friendly staff specialize in Thai, Indonesian, and Indian body work, offering customizable massage treatments paired with sweet smelling essential oils.
Head up to the hotel’s rooftop in the early evening and plop yourself on a plush white couch at Sky Bar. The trendy al fresco space is considered to be one of Lisbon’s most celebrated spots to sip and nibble. With Castelo São Jorge to the left, the River Tagus in the background and the Lisbon skyline at your feet, Sky Bar offers breathtaking views best enjoyed at sunset. Sip from a choir of craft cocktails, and nibble from a bowl of sweetly spiced nuts while the hotel’s resident DJ romances the crowd with ambient beats.
Once you’re feeling peckish skip down to the hotel’s signature fine dining restaurant Cervejaria Liberdade. The hotel’s elegant restaurant is considered one of Lisbon’s best seafood spots, sourcing fresh product from over 800km of Portuguese coastline.
Wag your finger through the menu and you’ll find Gooseneck barnacles from the Berlenga Islands, Algarve prawns, mini lobsters from Cascais and Aveiro Lagoon oysters. For those keen on feasting on surf meets turf, the chef and his kitchen brigade do an excellent job at pairing perfectly seared steaks with your favourite seafood. Find your bliss point by adding a dollop of herbacious bearnaise onto supple sirloin while spooning through a sizzling skillet of shrimp floating in enticing garlic butter.
