The Hotel

As we frequently were rowing by this forgotten farmland on the banks of Maranhão, we fell in love with the place and started identifying with it. We knew nothing about the hospitality business back then, but had a dream about creating an amazing training camp experience based on acquired knowledge, passion and desire as a professional athlete. As time went by we bought the estate, and brought with us architects, Americans and consultants. Athletes from Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and even New Zealand started arriving. Some, after being here, became Olympic Champions.

The hotel was born with nature, with a purpose to respect it. For this reason, the main concern of the architects was to integrate the Alentejo countryside into a modern, comfortable space, open to the field and in compliance with the new rules on energy efficiency. Solar and water resources are part of the energy supply throughout the hotel.
