AlmaLusa: in Portuguese Alma is “soul” and Lusa stands for the Lusitanian people. This means that the brand proudly showcases the best of Portugal and the local community through art, suppliers, people, and activities. We love to welcome guests that are looking for a genuine experience and contribute actively to be a part of the local traditions and heritage.

At AlmaLusa Comporta, we base our work on a strong social responsibility policy and efficient management model, that allows us to reduce the environmental impact and carbon footprint. 

AlmaLusa Hotels strongly believes that the hospitality industry must play an active role in respecting the environment and participating in the community, to promote its sustainable development. It is all about telling the story of each location, respecting the locals, and helping to protect their heritage.

Being a Local
