Sublime Comporta is a nature retreat nestled in a stunning 17-hectare estate, surrounded by pine and cork trees, wild dunes, rice fields and white-sand beaches as far as the eye can see.

The hotel offers different accommodation options spread between several buildings. Choose from the Owner’s House, the Guest Suites, the Bio-Pool Suites, and several two, three, four, and five-bedroom cabana-style villas. The architecture draws inspiration from the style of the cabanas in the village of Comporta, inhabited by local farmers and fishermen.

Each villa has a swimming pool, and there are another four swimming pools in the resort, including one for children, and a heated indoor pool in the spa. We had a lovely time at both our villa’s pool and also the main outdoor pool. We were surprised by how expansive the grounds are, allowing for everyone to have a nice quiet private time.

The nearby white-washed village of Comporta might be small in size, but it’s high in quality with excellent gastronomy and some nifty little boutique shops.

Awesomeness

The wonderful pine-scented air.

The complimentary bikes are such a fun way to explore the grounds and get around.

Sublime’s Organic Garden grows more than 300 varieties of herbs, vegetables and edible flowers. It supplies Sublime’s three restaurants and the spa’s essential oils. 

Eco concerns are serious, with solar panels, reusable wastewater systems, a biological pool and Tesla charging points.

Comporta is a 90-minute drive from Lisbon, although it feels a world away.

Bear in Mind

Accommodation options in Comporta are few (Sublime was the first hotel to open in the area), and rates are high for Portuguese standards. In our opinion, some of the fitness fees are excessive.

The breakfast room felt a little busy when we visited. The buffet is great but we regret not having ordered breakfast on our cabin’s terrace overlooking the forest.

Sublime offers a shuttle bus to the beach, but having a car is highly recommended.

Interview

A Conversation with Gonçalo about Sublime Comporta

A Conversation with Gonçalo Pessoa about Sublime Comporta
“The original idea was to build a house for our family holidays but halfway we decided to transform it into a small boutique hotel.”
– Gonçalo Pessoa, Founder of Sublime Comporta

How did the idea of starting Sublime Comporta come about?

The original idea was to build a house for our family holidays but halfway through construction, we realised that Comporta was attracting high-end tourism and at the time, there weren't any accommodation options in the area. So, we decided to transform our house into a small boutique hotel, opening its doors in 2014 with 14 rooms, a restaurant and a spa.

Today you have 23 rooms, 22 cabana-style villas, a couple of restaurants and a spa. What's next and what are the biggest challenges when expanding?

We are in the process of expanding the brand ’Sublime Hotels’ to other locations in Portugal with Sublime Lisboa opening late this spring. This will be a beautiful townhouse located in Amoreiras with 15 rooms and suites and a special restaurant. Also, we will start the construction of our second resort in Comporta very soon. Here you’ll find 43 villas, several restaurants and facilities and a building totally dedicated to hosting events.

The biggest challenges when expanding are to keep the brand’s identity consistent with our values and mission, and to attract the most talented Human Resources to work for us in today’s scarce environment.

Like most hotel founders that we chat with, starting a hotel was a whole new experience for you. What part of running a hotel do you enjoy the most?

What I enjoy the most is developing new concepts and ideas and implementing them. Also, the opportunity to meet new people is very exciting and enriching.

What's your favourite object at Sublime Comporta and where did you get it?

The hotel is full of beautiful old doors from several parts of the world, like the Moroccan door in the spa building.

"I enjoy developing new concepts and ideas"
– Gonçalo Pessoa, Founder of Sublime Comporta

What are the things to do or see in Comporta that a first time visitor shouldn't miss?

The beach and the rice fields for sure!

Describe your perfect day off in Comporta.

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel, go horseback riding in the sand dunes, enjoy the beach at Carvalhal and have a late lunch at our beach club. Then return to the hotel for a spa treatment followed by a special dinner with friends at Food Circle.

What is your favourite hotel in the world?

My biggest inspiration are the AMAN resorts.

Thank you Gonçalo for the interview.
