On June 28, the Cascade Hotel was officially inaugurated. All the guests that attended this event, enjoyed first-hand the special atmosphere that can be felt in the Cascade Hotel, on the peninsula Ponta da Piedade, and experienced a little of the “Cascade Lifestyle”.

Former Swedish champion tennis player Stefan Edberg was also in attendance due to his involvement with the Cascade Sports Academies.

Mr. Wild spoke falling in love with Lagos some 20 years ago and of his dream to build an exceptional hotel and Resort. Some12 years and 100 million Euros later, that dream became a reality, but not without overcoming the many obstacles that were met along the way. He is confident of the success of this new venture and of the positive effect it will have to the reputation and attraction to the Lagos area. This was the view shared by the Mayor who stressed the benefit of the development to the local area socially and economically and in terms of the maintenance of public space and environmental preservation.

Lisbon based Swiss Ambassador, Rudolf Schaller promised to bring the existence of Cascade to the attention of the newly inaugurated government of Portugal, especially the minister of tourism as an example of the excellence that has been achieved with this development. Stefan Edberg highlighted the individuality of the project with its emphasis on brilliance in sport.
