OITAVOS DUNES LINKS
Designed in 2001 by renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills, Oitavos Dunes is considered one of the best golf courses in Europe and the World.
Positioned in the prestigious 58th ranking “Top 100” Golf Magazine (2015 edition), the course ranks number one in Portugal and number two in Europe.
Designing the golf course was based on the respect and conservation of the delicate ecosystem of the sits. Oitavos Dunes is the first golf course in Europe and second in the world to achieve the “Gold Signature Sanctuary status” quality certificate, granted by Audubon International in recognition of the highest level of conservation. Each of the 18 holes offer breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Sintra.
The Oitavos is an exclusive 5-star hotel, built in the vicinity of Quinta da Marinha, full of natural sand dunes and pine trees. Its design and innovation offer a modern perspective of Portugal, yet rooted in traditional Portuguese heritage.
It has 142 rooms (64m2), all with views of the ocean or the golf course. Inspired by the Atlantic coast, its design is intended to focus attention outwards through the historical and natural elements of the surrounding landscape.
