At the Octant Douro, you will find venues offering unique atmospheres, each with its own personality. You can hold your ceremony beside our panoramic pool or at one of our other indoor or outdoor venues, as agreed with the hotel in advance. If you reserve the hotel for the sole use of your wedding party, you can choose your preferred location.

Explore our gardens
One of the most striking characteristics of our hotel is the fact that it is set amid gardens and green spaces, with views over the Douro that all of our guests adore.

Our outdoor pools
We have two of them. The blue of one rivals that of the sky, while the other is a deep blue. Both afford a panoramic view over the Douro.

Raiva Restaurant
This is our choice dining venue, and is where the extraordinary dishes created by Chef are normally served. Here, you will find an indoor space and an outdoor terrace with a view.

Pop into the library
If peace and quiet is what you’re looking for then this is one of the perfect places for you. A view of the river, shelves lined with books and, in winter, a roaring fire.

Pay a visit to the movie corner
We want to be that hotel where your every need and desire is met.
Get your guests together and watch one of the two movies we screen daily. We even provide the popcorn!


Our spa is a minimalist space where you simply cannot be oblivious to your proximity to the Douro River and the surrounding landscape. This is why we strive to promote locally produced ingredients, back-to-your-roots treatments, medicinal herbs and other plants that were used by our ancestors in bygone times.

Heated indoor pool, with panoramic view over the Douro • Sensations shower • Sauna and Turkish bath overlooking the river • Wellness menu • Five treatment rooms

Would you like a couples massage or a special treat for your feet? Talk to us and we will work with you to find the perfect solution.


All of the room types at the Octant Douro are breathtaking. We know that, for such a special occasion, you will want to stay in a place that symbolizes the moment you are experiencing. This is why we always suggest that our wedding couples choose to stay in the Panoramic Suite. From this spacious suite with private terrace, you will be able to see all of the scenery around the hotel: the bends in the river, the river dock and one of our outdoor pools, all with the mountains as backdrop.

For wedding parties booking the entire hotel for their sole use, we have a special gift: a voucher for a stay that you can use to celebrate your first anniversary with us. The voucher includes: 1 night’s accommodation, a bottle of champagne on arrival, a couple’s massage


For this very special occasion, we want to provide (you and your guests) with experiences that are both unique and enriching: from gastronomic experiences that make use of regional products, to picnics in secret hideaways, experiences with a strong connection to the river, outings to explore the region and visits to wineries.
At the Octant Douro we have a dedicated Experience Manager whose job is precisely to create such special moments for you.
