Royal Óbidos Spa & Golf Resort is located on Portugal's west coast, a mere 45 minutes from Portugal's capital city of Lisbon,  situated in a privileged location nestling between the Atlantic Ocean and Óbidos Lagoon offering truly stunning views throughout.

The Resort comprises of the Evolutee Hotel, a boutique hotel of 39 rooms with interior décor by the über trendy design team of Yoo Studio, the design team at the international design and lifestyle company, yoo, founded by John Hitchcox and acclaimed designer Philippe Starck, a conference centre with capacity of up to 315 delegates,  the famous Kobe Steak & Sushi Restaurant and the Elemental Spa, which has the exclusivity of Eminence Organics products for Portugal and offers guests an invigorating yet tranquil experience, with a vast menu of signature treatments and rituals using, also, regionally sourced organic products.

In addition the resort's 18 hole championship golf course, the very last design of the late golfing legend Severiano Ballesteros, features in Europe's Top 100 (recently ranked 57th at the Golf Word magazine "Top 100 courses in Continental Europe 2016"). 

The resort's luxurious real estate component - plots for villas, apartments and hotel residences linked to the hotel are currently for sale - is also worth to mention, after being awarded the "Best Touristic Project Prize" at SIL 2014 awards, materializing just four years since the opening of the Resort in January 2012 which, furthermore, signifies the high quality of the product and excellence of service offered to Resort guests.
