Hotel Spotlight - The Late Birds Lisbon
If you are planning to visit Lisbon in Portugal this year, we strongly recommend staying at The Late Birds Lisbon.
Since 2015, this urban resort for the gay male community is located in the heart of Lisbon’s historical center, Bairro Alto and Principe Real, where all guests and their friends, men or women, are treated as part of the community.
Housed in a completely restored, late-18th century building, it has sixteen very comfortable rooms. 9 of those rooms overlook the pool while 7 suites face the city. They also have a lounge, beautiful garden and UV-treated swimming pool.
You instantly feel welcome and comfortable, as though you are at home amongst friends.
Straight away you notice the decor blending the contemporary Portuguese design with a classical freshness.
Each of the suites display original art while maintaining a clean simplistic look, with pleasurable, calming views. Whether thats facing the city or towards the pool. The rooms include WiFi and an iMac, along with climate control and Castelbel Porto toiletries.
The buffet breakfast is always the highlight of our stay.
Within the lounge overlooking the garden, a large spread of various delicacies is laid out ready for you to taste. The staff are also available to take orders for more on the menu.
We personally love the Pastel de Nata they had to offer, which is a Portuguese type of custard tart.
Outside, the swimming pool and green garden offers guests the atmosphere of a resort in the heart of the city.
Summertime, you can enjoy drinks on the terrace, lounge among the jasmin in the garden or enjoy the UV-treated, chemical-free pool. While in the winter you can mingle with other guests in the lounge or read a book in front of the fireplace.
The lounge, bar and garden are perfect spaces to celebrate birthdays, gay weddings and special events or just celebrate the warmth of being among friends.
Regular events are held including the Sunday Brunch, the Fado Bicha show every two weeks and Pool Parties in the summer.
Wherever you are are relaxing, full-time residents Leoa and Mia, two gorgeous cats, won't be shy to come and join you.
At the end of 2020 the Late Birds are intending to open another 4 star urban resort in Porto, Portugal with 22 rooms.
