THE YEATMAN, a new 5 star hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal will be launched at the Monte Carlo Travel Market in Monaco (MCTM) from 9-11 January.

Currently under construction, THE YEATMAN is a luxury wine spa hotel located in Vila Nova de Gaia (Northern Portugal), a world UNESCO site renowned for its Port wine cellars.

Built on a series of terraces, with panoramic views over the River Douro and the city of Oporto, the hotel boasts 12 suites and 70 bedrooms, each with a terrace and private garden. The hotel will also have a gastronomic restaurant, a Port bar and lounge with 11 meeting and event rooms. Adjoining the hotel will be a beautiful wine spa with outdoor and indoor swimming pools, gymnasium, children’s club and magnificent garden.

Francisco Franco Afonso, the General Manager of THE YEATMAN, states “The MCTM provides us with the ideal platform to launch this exciting project and establish its positioning amongst the luxury hotels of the world. We hope to deliver an authentic and luxurious experience for people visiting Oporto and an unforgettable wine experience.”

THE YEATMAN forms part of a family owned company called The Fladgate Partnership, owners of the distinguished names of Taylor’s, Croft and Fonseca Ports. Established over 300 years ago, the company is already involved in tourism with visitor centres, a restaurant and catering company in Vila Nova de Gaia together with a tasting room and vineyard visits at Quinta do Panascal in the Douro Valley. It was the original owner of The Vintage House Hotel in Pinhão.

THE YEATMAN has been considered as a PIN Project (Project of National Interest) by the Portuguese government. The hotel is due to open early 2010.
