IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, announces the signing of Kimpton Lisbon, the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants property in the Portuguese capital.

Set to open its doors in 2026, the boutique luxury hotel marks the second Kimpton to come to Portugal, following the signing of Kimpton Algarve São Rafael Atlántico in late 2023.

Kimpton Lisbon adds to IHG’s fast-growing luxury & lifestyle portfolio, now the second largest in the world, and reinforces its focus on its growing presence in the country.

In the luxury & lifestyle segment, IHG operates six open hotels and has a further seven in development for brands including Six Senses, Hotel Indigo, and Vignette Collection’s recently opened Convent Square Lisbon and Casa da Companhia in Porto.

Signed under a franchise agreement with Real Hotel Group, the hotel will be reimagined as an excellent representation of the Kimpton brand, with 141-guestrooms and public areas redesigned to take inspiration from the light and colours of the city.

From unique, design-forward spaces featuring inspiring high-quality finishes to seasonally-inspired restaurants and bars - including a rooftop bar and pool – the hotel will seamlessly cater guests looking to engage in new cultures, cuisines or conversations.

Located in the heart of Lisbon, Kimpton Lisbon will become an ideal launch point for exploration, with key tourist attractions in walking distance including the Eduardo VII Park, Marquês de Pombal Square and Avenida Liberdade, as well as museums and the city’s bustling restaurants and bar scene.

(Mrs) Willemijn Geels, VP Development, Europe, IHG Hotels & Resorts, commented:Working with our partners at Real Hotels Group, we are delighted to bring our Kimpton brand to the vibrant and culturally-rich city of Lisbon. The hotel is a great addition to our growing luxury and lifestyle portfolio in Portugal, joining the recently signed Kimpton Algarve São Rafael Atlántico, and further demonstrating owner demand and guest appetite for our Kimpton brand.

Merging a culture of genuine hospitality and unique, design forward hotels for all, Kimpton Lisbon will create transformative experiences where locals and visitors seamlessly come together. I look forward to welcoming guests to our latest Kimpton boutique luxury property when it opens its door in 2026

Eurico Almeida, CEO, Real Hotels Group, commented: "We are thrilled at the opportunity to bring the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants property to Lisbon, and our eighth hotel in partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts. We look forward to combining IHG’s global enterprise with Kimpton’s renowned blend of luxury and individuality, partnering with the award-winning architecture and design group, Rockwell, and infusing them into the heart of Lisbon’s vibrant hospitality landscape.”

Kimpton pioneered the concept of unique, distinctive, design-forward hotels in the United States.

Founded in 1981 by visionary hotelier Bill Kimpton, the brand is inspired by his travels to Europe where Kimpton saw an opportunity for a hotel experience that was more than a place to stay, but rather a place to experience, feel a sense of belonging and explore.

IHG acquired Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in 2018 and has since spearheaded its expansion into Europe and beyond. Kimpton Lisbon joins a portfolio of eight Kimpton hotels across the UK and continental Europe and forms part of Kimpton’s global portfolio of 78 hotels across 12 countries, representing 13,721-bedrooms.

IHG Hotels & Resorts currently operates 20 hotels across seven brands in Portugal, including Six Senses, InterContinental, Vignette Collection, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Iberostar.
