Go Big, Go Party, Go Portugal
One of the wonderful things about hosting a party at Hotel Casa Palmela is that we can hire the property exclusively and we have the ability to transform many spaces on the grounds to really reflect different, creative themes. We have the option to erect structures or to host alfresco parties without fear or disturbing residents and we can party into the night. There is a fantastic landing area at the bottom of the gardens which is the perfect party platform which can host large numbers, and which is the ideal blank canvas for extravaganzas. With the glowing backdrop of Hotel Casa Palmela and the lights of Lisbon dazzling in behind, this is the ideal spot for evening entertainment and a venue which hits all of the right notes. It really is something very special.
