Portugal's new The Agartha, Boutique Hotel – Retreat and Wellness Centre

The Agartha, Boutique Hotel – Retreat and Wellness Centre is now open,  80 minutes north of Lisbon in the beautiful Portuguese village of Monchite. The Agartha (referred to as the mystical the center of the earth ) is just a short 12 minute drive from the medieval city of Tomar, famous for its World Heritage Convento do Cristo, the Templar Knights and its quaint cobble stoned streets. The Agartha is less than half an hour from the renowned Shrine of our Lady of Fatima.


Set on a hill overlooking the rural countryside with sweeping vistas from all of the rooms and terraces, the Agartha is built on the footprint of a 17th century farm. To preserve the site’s character, original stones have been incorporated into the rooms and public areas by local artisans. The blend of the “old” and the “new” amenities have created a perfect retreat in a serene setting. The Agartha offers 7 uniquely furnished rooms, and one luxury villa. The Agartha Villa is made up of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a private garden, a living room with a sleeper sofa, and a fully equipped kitchen. All rooms and the villa feature cable TV, free Wi-Fi, individually controlled air conditioning and heating, and the highest quality beds and linens to ensure a comfortable stay. A complimentary breakfast buffet is served daily.

The restaurant, Abundancia, with locally-sourced provisions will feature a “farm to table” concept and is on schedule to open in mid-September.

The Agartha’s Wellness Centre offers specialized individual and group classes and workshops in Reiki, various Breathing techniques, Yoga, Detox, Massage and Personal development. Two private treatment rooms and a large meeting room offer facilities for seminars and social functions that are easily adaptable to individual needs.

The Agartha is the perfect place to decompress, reconnect with friends and family and is and an ideal setting for intimate retreats and small groups when visiting Fatima or exploring Tomar. The Agartha is accepting bookings online through www., the website: , email: or by calling the property.

The hotel is offering a 20% opening discount through the end of September.
