A few days ago, the new Peugeot 308 GT + Model Options was presented in Lisbon. I had the honor of being there. The Onyria Quinta da Marinha Resort was booked for the night. Actually, we’re already used to good hotels from Peugeot, but this exceeded all of my previous experiences. What would you expect from a 5 start golf resort in Portugal?
“Couldn’t be any smaller”-naturally, I mean that sarcastically. To be exact, the room was enormous; there must be a lot of people who can’t afford an apartment that large. And the bathroom was also enormous, with a shower that could easily fit two people. Naturally, there’s an ample bathtub as well. A dream bathroom!
The rest of the room was timelessly elegant and had all the technical refinements that you could wish for. On top of that, there was a balcony, as big as half the room and connected along the whole length of the room with a glass frontage (which, incidentally, could be completely opened.)
Spa & Wellness
Finally I can tell you about a rare time on a press trip when I got to peacefully throw myself into the pool and swim a few lengths. Even if it was a little cold outside at this time of year-the outside area was very tempting and let it be known how pleasant it must be in summer to lay by the pool and relax. Inside, the whirlpool, counter-current system and various wellness showers weren’t half bad either.
Food and Drink
Although I sat at the bar and chatted with various colleagues and nice conversation partners from Peugeot until 1 in the morning, I slept really well. Of course, I treated myself to a hot bath and enjoyed the breakfast. Even though the breakfast on the next day was short due to the strict program-really exceptional. One tiny minus that I had to forgive: I have had many buffets with significantly more selection, which were also more refreshingly and temptingly served.
Conclusion-the Onyria Hotel Quinta da Marinha Resort makes you want to see the rest of the hotel group.
