The hotel’s design is a testament to contemporary elegance, featuring modern furnishings and rooms that offer sweeping ocean views from their private balconies. Guests can relax in both indoor and outdoor pools or rejuvenate at the Legacy Spa by Wake, which boasts three serene treatment rooms, a sauna, and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Culinary delights await at Ristorante Don Alfonso 1890, where the flavours of Italy’s Sorrento peninsula and Amalfi coast are beautifully intertwined with local Portuguese ingredients. Guests can savour these exquisite dishes in the opulent dining room or on the private patio, basking in the sun.

The Legacy Hotel Cascais is Hilton’s third Curio Collection property in Portugal, joining the prestigious ranks of Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia and The Emerald House Lisbon.
