Time to pop the Champagne and get in the mood for a joyous celebration!
Conceived less than half a decade ago, the SANA Hotels dreamed of redefining Portugal as the jewel of international hospitality, and four years later, that dream has turned into reality.
Creating a luxurious hospitality experience is nothing short of an art. And SANA Hotels has claimed the domain by providing multiple heavenly escapes all over Portugal.
This brings us to one of its most coveted jewels, the SUD Lisboa.
SUD Lisboa is the perfect rendition of Lisbon’s pristine beauty, eclectic culture, iconic cuisine and larger-than-life lifestyle. It is a clear depiction of the determination and the sincere promise that the team at SANA Hotels has made; to bring the unique blend of Portuguese culture and landscape to the forefront of bespoke international travel. Such elaborate goals and the resulting success don’t just rest on the perfect execution of plans but call for inspirational leadership and a vision to drive the venture to its manifestation.
This is where our indispensable Business Development Director & Executive Member of SANA Hotels, Salomé Gorgiladze, presents herself as the driving force behind this venture. So it is no surprise that the rise of the SANA Hotels in the echelons of global bespoke hospitality coincides with Salome’s association with the company.
From her roots in Georgia to pursue her dream education in International Relationships, Management and Psychology in Switzerland, she understands the importance of cultivating relationships in any business.
Before embarking on the SUD Lisboa journey, she got considerable exposure at the private equity firm Global Emerging Markets. There she whetted her business and analytical skills, gaining the first-hand experience of running multiple ventures that came her way throughout her career.
Like a perfect movie plot, these business interactions led her back to Portugal, her greatest love. Here, in a bid to pursue an MBA degree, she found her place with SANA Hotels. And the rest, as they say, is history.
These four years have seen the SANA Hotels Chain expand its exquisite profile to thirteen bespoke hotels in Portugal. These success tales include state-of-the-art projects like the EPIC SANA Lisboa Hotel, Myriad by SANA Hotels, and EPIC SANA Marques Hotel.
What sets Salomé apart is her deep understanding of multicultural hospitality, infusing it with her ability to fashion an enchanting accommodation experience and create a sense of belongingness for the travelling aficionados. Moreover, she is well-versed in the art of magically begetting a feeling which takes the guests to a unique dimension of bespoke hotel experience.
This is precisely the sentiment that SUD Lisboa exudes. It is the perfect amalgamation of innovation and Salomé’s apt understanding of how a hospitality setting can complement celebrations.
Residing at the historically rich Belém district on the Avenida Brasília, SUD Lisboa looks all captivating with the tranquil backdrop of the Tagus River accompanied by the iconic 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Indeed, it is ideal for commemorating the end of the pandemic with a fine celebration of your own!
Such a charming scene may look like the best thing that SUD Lisboa has to offer here. However, the luxury afforded by the eatery for the enthusiasts foraging for the best of Lisbon presents another tempting offer on the table.
SUD Lisboa has two bespoke hospitality venues: SUD Terazza and the SUD Lisboa Hall. The SUD Terazza is what you call a pure definition of elegance and exclusivity, with its nothing-short-of-iconic panoramic view of the Tagus and an accompanying Mediterranean-style cuisine. Moreover, the SUD Infinity pool is on the top floor with an elaborate cocktail menu, enchanting views, and live acts, everything that exemplifies a bespoke outdoor celebratory experience.
Despite all the culinary delights and the luxurious outdoor accommodations, one cannot forget the corporate prestige that SUD Lisboa has brought to Lisbon with its SUD Lisboa Hall.
The SUD Lisboa Hall imbues an utterly different identity than the SUD Lisboa. It is glamorous but suave and an exquisite setting for a destination wedding. This exclusive private event space has witnessed various high-profile events that have expanded SUD Lisboa’s brand beyond the borders of Portugal.
Some of these high-profile even include the prestigious launch event of OMEGA watches in the country, notably featuring celebrities like Cindy Crawford, the exclusive inauguration of HBO Portugal and the stylish awards ceremony of the E! Channel Entertainment. Furthermore, SUD Lisboa has ensured that it caters to the bespoke clientele and accentuates Lisbon as the city of celebrations.
Recently, this storied corporate success also sponsored the Portugal Grand Prix 2020, marking the return of the prestigious motorsport event and the F1 Heineken trophy to the country. Such high-profile corporate events are a testament to the fact the SANA Hotels chain fulfils its long-standing commitment to establishing Portugal as a significant tourism and business centre for corporate engagements.
In fact, the promise to acquaint the world with the unique Portuguese hospitality by hosting such sophisticated events has translated into a relentless ambition to extend the SUD Lisboa inspired success to the other projects in SANA Hotel’s armoury.
To grasp the great opportunity of celebrating SUD Lisboa’s fourth anniversary, SANA Hotels announce a new addition to its already coveted list of hospitality services; the opulent EPIC SANA Marques Hotel.
The five-star EPIC SANA Marques flaunts a similar central location in the heart of the city of Lisbon. It is close to the illustrious Marques de Pombal statue and Avenida da Liberdade. The new hotel is primed to immerse its visitors in all the luxury elements afforded by contemporary, bespoke hospitality service.
Whether it is about the state-of-the-art Sayanna wellness spa to soothe the senses or a glistening infinity pool on the rooftop to flaunt the panoramic beauty of the city. The new hotel promises to match the exemplary standards that the SANA Hotels chain has furnished in its 20 years of experience in the industry.
Moreover, the EPIC SANA Marques also house two restaurants dedicated to Italian and Asian cuisines separately to take you on an exploratory culinary expedition. It truly defines what a venerable eatery experience should be like.
