This a brand new 5* hotel in Lisbon which has opened to compete with the Four Seasons which is literally just over the road.
Having stayed there it was hard to see why they built these hotels in such a quiet area of Lisbon. I guess their analogy was that rich people don't like to walk!
We originally booked in at another Sana hotel just down the road but when we arrived we were told they had let our rooms go to someone else and upgraded us...we had mixed feelings about this. But they did kindly pay for a taxi to get us to the new hotel which was just around the corner - the Epic Sana Lisboa.
Everything about this hotel was 'epic', including the hill which you must get up before you arrive, thank god they paid for our taxi. Then your arrive in reception and it has all the hallmarks of American hotels - spacious & marble floors, but this one had a chic styling which I guess was true to their Epic brand.
The hotel's rooms were truly incredible; stylish, chic and luxurious. Room decor is modern, minimal and very inoffensive. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in my life although my partner was about 1/2 a km away from me on the other side! Slight exaggeration.
The hotel put a welcome message on the screen which is behind mirrored glass so completely disappears and turns into a mirror when the TV is off...it was very cool.
The shower had different heads and modes like a spa.
The only thing that the room lacked was a decent view....which comes back to location.
We ate in the hotel's restaurant and this proved to be an expensive affair. However the food is 1* Michelin standard and truly amazing. The restaurant lacked atmosphere due to the fact we were the only people in their bar 2 other parties. The staff were very friendly and despite paying through the nose it was a lovely experience.
We also checked out the hotel's spa which was in the basement. It is beautiful, again no expense spared on look, clean, spacious and fully equipped. The gym had a fair amount of kit in too.
I would defiantly recommend this hotel for a luxury business stop over and despite having a rooftop pool / bar it is not somewhere I would go on holiday by any stretch. You can't really walk anywhere and the hill you would have to climb to get back would give you a heart attack if you weren't fit enough...
Overall, a pleasant & appeasing stay which I will not forget.
