About Us

“This story is not exclusively mine. It is of all those who believe in this project and who share with me the determination to make it grow…”

Belmiro Mendes de Azevedo



We have the privilege of belonging to one of the largest and most representative Portuguese business groups: Sonae Capital.
We are heirs of a DNA that transmits us a sense of mission, excellence, rigor, orientation towards quality, competitiveness, courage, ambition.
With more than 30 years of hotel history, the S.Hotels Collection Group now includes seven hotels from north to south of the country, whose common language speaks only one concept: unique experiences.
The hotels of the Sonae Capital Group invite you to check in the city of Porto, in the Troia Peninsula, in Algarve and, soon in Lisbon, assuming the commitment to provide you with a reference host that guarantees your maximum satisfaction.
We are betting on a wide complementary offer in the areas of leisure, health and well-being because we aspire to be recognized as the best hotel chain, either in the segment of “boutique” units – for leisure and city breaks in the main cities of the country – or with the best business hotel in Porto or the best beach range for families in Troia.
We are a brand for all, built with the many visions that make this a plural group with hotels that tell stories.

Where We Are

Sonae Capital

With the objective of “identifying business opportunities in segments with high growth potential and equipping them with growth-enhancing resources until they become self-sustaining, ensuring efficient capital allocation”, Sonae Capital focused on the tourism sector – and in particular in hotels, for more than 30 years.
The investment began with Porto Palácio Hotel, a business unit, located on Avenida da Boavista, in Porto. In 2015, with the opening of The Artist Porto Hotel & Bistro, in partnership with the Porto Hotel and Tourism School, the Group presented a distinctive hotel-school concept. In the same city, we followed The House Ribeira Hotel, located in the heart of the Baixa, designed for the leisure tourism segment.
A little further south, in Troia, Sonae Capital has two hotel units – the Aqualuz Suite Hotel Apartments, which includes the Troia Mar&Rio and Troia Lagoa units – and, on the beach line, the Troia Residence.
Towards the Algarve, the Aqualuz Suite Hotel Lagos integrates the portfolio of the S.Hotels Collection Group, reinforcing the offer in the Sun and Beach segment with proposed accommodation designed so that each Client can enjoy a wide range of integrated services in the areas of leisure, health and welfare.
Lisbon is the destination that follows where, in the heart of Santa Apolónia Railway Station, a hotel unit that lives from the city and to the city with experiences to discover in 2021 appears.
