Updated: Feb 12, 2022

The YEATMAN is a luxury wine hotel and spa situated in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal with spectacular views over the UNESCO World Heritage city of Porto and the Douro River. Set in extensive landscaped gardens, it is built across multiple levels featuring terraces and indoor and outdoor infinity pools. The YEATMAN is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection of hotels and is distinguished with two Michelin Stars. It is widely regarded as the best hotel in Porto and is a unique and distinctive landmark in the world of classic luxury hotels.

The YEATMAN is a great base from which to explore historic Vila Nova de Gaia where port houses have aged and blended their wines for generations and the cobbled lanes lead between the lodges down to the quays of the River Douro. It is also connected to the brand-new World of Wine district which boasts museums, restaurants and exhibition spaces. A short walk onto the north bank across the landmark Dom Luis I Bridge leads to the cultural core of Porto with its fascinating architecture.

Whilst you are planning your special trip to Portugal why not also consider a river cruise? We have the perfect cruise to partner your luxury stay in Porto:

CRUISING WITH AMAWATERWAYS is an excellent way to discover local culture and sights. After taking one of the daily shore excursions (included in the fare), whether this is a trip to a nearby town, an organised walk in the area where the boat is docked, or even a cycling tour, you just hop back on your river cruise ship and sail to the next stunning city or charming town! Also included in the fares is all dining on board (including The Chef’s Table specialty restaurant); fine wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; internet access and Wi-Fi; and bicycles that you can use to explore on your own or join our guided bike tours.

AmaWaterways was recognised by travel authority Berlitz for having the top ten rated river cruise ships out of 310 reviewed based on accommodation, dining, service and other on board features.


Rambling vineyards and charming native farms cling to the steep sides of the Douro River Valley, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe’s most unspoiled regions and to Port country— the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. Sail roundtrip from Porto, the beautiful “City of Bridges”; visit Regua, the ‘capital’ of the Douro Valley; and marvel at Salamanca, the UNESCO-designated “Golden City.” Taste wines from historic wineries and soak up the genuine beauty of one of Europe’s most unadulterated landscapes.
