The hotel comprises 83 rooms, 13 of which are Junior Suites and Suites. It also houses three different dining areas; the Restaurante Condes de Ericeira, the Boémio Cocktail Lounge and the O Jardim Wine Bar. Other features include; spectacular gardens, an outdoor swimming pool and a Wellness Spa.


The Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa - Luxurious, Soothing, Carefree Comfort


The architectural project has undertaken meticulous rehabilitation, and also allowed some significant spaces of the building to be restored such as; the main staircase to the old chapel, the grand living rooms and the old kitchen, recovering their original essence. The interior design has been carried out in collaboration with Chilean designer Jamie Beriestain, with a commitment to combining tradition and history with luxury, and features that guarantee maximum comfort.

The hall of the hotel is particularly majestic due to its creation from high quality materials such as marble, alongside frescoes adorning the wall and a huge coffered ceiling.

The History of the Palace

The palace was initially built in 1533, years later it became the home of one of Portugal’s most esteemed noble families - Condes de Ericeira. During this period the palace was incredibly luxurious, however in 1755 the building was damaged in an earthquake. Following its reconstruction at the end of the 18th century, the palace became the residence of the Marquises of Rio Maior and illustrious names in Portuguese politics and society were born there, such as João Oliveira e Daun, Duke of Saldanha, who was Prime Minister of Portugal on various occasions between 1835 and 1870.

Timeless Luxury

Each of the 83 suites at The One Palácio da Anunciada has been designed to offer the perfect combination of distinction and comfort. In order to achieve this, the designers have opted for the use of natural colors and high-quality building materials including natural wood, Portuguese marble and velvet upholstery. The rooms also include traditional Portuguese decorative elements such as hand-painted blue and white ceramic pieces, designed exclusively for the hotel, adorning the bed’s headboards.

In addition, photographs of the palace before and after the restoration allow guests to appreciate its huge transformation and acknowledge its history.
