Hotel do Sado Business & Nature

Hotel do Sado Business & Nature * * * * is located merely a few kilometres from Lisbon, in a privileged all-inclusive destination, where city, river and mountain are brought together:

Setúbal, renowned for being one of the 35 Most Beautiful Bays in the World (voted in 2002),
• The Sado river, where Portugal´s only colony of dolphins resides,
Serra da Arrabida, whose rich heritage of natural and cultural assets made it an applicant for UNESCO´s World Heritage.

In order to make the most out of everything this region has to offer, we have created a guidebook of experiences where you can find numerous activities.

Whether in couples or in groups, our suggestions range from wine and cheese tasting to coasteering courses for those who prefer more radical challenges. For business and corporate groups, the hotel has a set of team building activities available upon request, so don’t hesitate to contact us.


Seeing as we are so close to both the river and the sea, we encourage and invite you to try a variety of water activities such as surf, kite surf, stand-up paddle and canoeing.

On the other hand, you can´t come to Setúbal and not see and walk around the old salt galleons – with a chance to catch a typical sardine feast on board – or get on a sailboat with a few friends for a wine-tasting sunset party on the water.

For the more adventurous types, why not pay a visit to Professor Luiz Saldanha´s Marine Park in Arrábida´s underwater world for a true diving experience?


As UNESCO´s World Heritage Candidate, Serra da Arrábida Mountains is one of the choice settings for those who like to walk or hike and discover a little more of Portugal. With many different levels of difficulty and duration, one can not only observe the beautiful landscape of flora and fauna, but also spot dinosaur footprints!

If you prefer to learn more about the city or the history of the region, we have guided tours of the city centre and surrounding castles available. You can also visit Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais which are just 30 Minutes away from the hotel.

Animals & nature

Given that we are so close to the Sado river, one cannot pass up the chance to say “hello” to the only community of resident dolphins in Portugal, the “Roazes Corvineiros” (Tursiops truncatus) also known as the Bottlenose Dolphins.

What’s more, in the Natural Reserve of the same river´s Estuary, one can also find the perfect place for those who love bird-watching. More than 250 species of birds makes this protected wonder just right to visit any time of year.

Don´t miss out on the horse and donkey rides available, as well as the trips to the nearby Badoca Safari Park, all equally loved by kids.


We have the privilege of finding many golf courses and practice fields in our close vicinity. Some of which are even among the top 100 in Europe!

Whether you wish to improve your skills or play autonomously, please contact us so we may schedule your time on the green.

Rendezvous for couples

To surprise your better half/other half, what about an oyster and white wine tasting date aboard a sailboat whilst sailing into the sunset?

Or a romantic boat trip through the Roman Ruins of Cetóbriga, California beach, the Pêra tip and Soltróia, with strawberries and champagne?

What do you say to an exclusive hot air balloon ride?

If you feel like relaxing, book a Nature Therapy treatment for two, where you can wind down and replenish your energies together.

Gastronomy and culture

If you are a foodie or simply a gastronomy lover, this is the right place for you. The hotel will take you to the wineries of the region where you can taste wine together with the regional cured sausages and PDO cheeses.

Be sure to also try our panoramic restaurant specialities, such as the Fish Cataplana, the Cod with Azeitão Cheese and the city´s legendary fried cuttlefish.

Other Outings & Activities

In couples or in groups, more extreme or less extreme, our activity options are limitless. In this region, you can mountain bike, abseil, climb, race karts, coasteer and explore the entire Arrábida coastline, visit marine caves and deserted beaches and a whole lot more.
