SUD Lisboa: Europe’s Most Trendy and Enchanting Hotspot

Conceived over half a decade ago, the vision of SANA Hotels was to redefine Portugal as the epitome of international hospitality. Fast forward six years, and that dream has transformed into a resounding reality.

Crafting a luxurious hospitality experience is an art form, SANA Hotels has indisputably claimed its place as a master in this domain, offering heavenly escapes throughout Portugal. Among its most treasured jewels is SUD Lisboa.

SUD Lisboa serves as a splendid embodiment of Lisbon’s pristine beauty, diverse culture, iconic cuisine, and an extravagant lifestyle. It stands as a testament to the unwavering commitment and sincere promise made by the SANA Hotels team to bring the unique blend of Portuguese culture and landscape to the forefront of bespoke international travel. Achieving such ambitious goals and the ensuing success requires more than flawless execution; it demands inspirational leadership and a visionary drive to bring the venture to fruition.

In this realm of bespoke hospitality, Salomé Gorgiladze, the indispensable Business Development Director and Executive Member of SANA Hotels, emerges as the driving force behind this venture. Her leadership has played a pivotal role in propelling SANA Hotels to its prominent global position. The seamless alignment between Salomé’s association with the company and the ascent of SANA Hotels is no coincidence. Her influential role underscores the brand’s commitment to excellence in the world of hospitality.

Hailing from Georgia and pursuing her education in International Relations, Management, and Psychology in Switzerland, Salomé Gorgiladze recognizes the paramount importance of cultivating relationships in any business venture.

Prior to embarking on the SUD Lisboa journey, Salomé gained significant exposure at the private equity firm Global Emerging Markets. She honed her business acumen and analytical skills, delving into the intricacies of managing multiple ventures throughout her career.

In a serendipitous turn, these professional experiences guided her back to Portugal, her cherished homeland. Opting to pursue an MBA degree, Salomé found her professional haven with SANA Hotels. The subsequent six years have witnessed the expansion of the SANA Hotels chain, enhancing its distinguished profile with bespoke hotels across Portugal.

What distinguishes Salomé is her profound understanding of multicultural hospitality, seamlessly blending it with her talent for crafting enchanting accommodation experiences that instill a sense of belonging for avid travelers.

Nestled in the historically rich Belém district on Avenida Brasília, SUD Lisboa boasts an alluring backdrop of the Tagus River, complemented by the iconic 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Undoubtedly, it stands as an ideal haven to celebrate life.

While the picturesque scene might seem like the pinnacle of what SUD Lisboa offers, the luxury extended by the eatery beckons enthusiasts in search of the best of Lisbon, presenting yet another irresistible offering on the table.

SUD Lisboa proudly encompasses two distinct venues that epitomize bespoke hospitality: SUD Lisboa Terrazza and the SUD Lisboa Hall. The SUD Terrazza stands as the epitome of elegance and exclusivity, boasting an iconic panoramic view of the Tagus River paired with a Mediterranean-style cuisine. The crowning jewel is the SUD Infinity pool on the top floor, offering an elaborate cocktail menu, captivating views, and live performances—a culmination that defines an unparalleled outdoor celebratory experience.

Perched on the upper echelons of the SUD Lisboa Terrazza building, the infinity pool unveils a spectacular vista of the Tejo River and the iconic 25 de Abril Bridge. It serves as the perfect haven to unwind after a day at the office or indulge in a refreshing dip to escape the humid embrace of Lisbon’s daytime heat.

The SUD Pool Lounge has emerged as a favorite among city dwellers, where guests can relish a variety of Mediterranean and Italian snacks to satiate their appetites.

Amidst the culinary delights and luxurious outdoor offerings, it’s essential to acknowledge the corporate prestige that SUD Lisboa has bestowed upon Lisbon through its SUD Lisboa Hall. This venue exudes a distinct identity, combining glamour with suavity, providing an exquisite setting for events such as destination weddings. The SUD Lisboa Hall, as an exclusive private event space, has hosted numerous high-profile events, elevating the SUD Lisboa brand beyond the borders of Portugal.
Among these high-profile events is the prestigious launch of OMEGA watches in the country, a notable affair graced by celebrities such as Cindy Crawford. SUD Lisboa has also played host to the exclusive inauguration of HBO Portugal and the stylish awards ceremony of the E! Channel Entertainment. In its commitment to catering to a bespoke clientele, SUD Lisboa has successfully emphasized Lisbon’s identity as a city of celebrations.

Adding to its storied corporate success, SUD Lisboa took center stage as the venue for the Portugal Grand Prix 2020, marking the return of the prestigious motorsport event and the coveted F1 Heineken trophy to the country. These high-profile corporate events stand as a testament to the enduring commitment of the SANA Hotels chain in establishing Portugal as a significant hub for tourism and corporate engagement.

The promise to showcase the world with unique Portuguese hospitality through hosting such sophisticated events has translated into a relentless ambition to extend the success inspired by SUD Lisboa to other projects within the formidable arsenal of SANA Hotels.
