(PRESS RELEASE)_Portugal, July 6th, 2023 – 2023 marks a milestone year for Tivoli Hotels & Resorts, celebrating 90 years of timeless travel and incredible memories by offering guests two thoughtfully designed signature experiences in Portugal–Timeless by Tivoli and Room 90–as well as commemorative experiences that range from special concerts and curated wine dinners to wellness escapes and local events. This year also marks the brand’s expansion in Europe with Tivoli Doelen Hotel in Amsterdam, the first all-inclusive Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort in Portugal (both opened in March), and the upcoming summer launches of Tivoli La Caleta Resort in Tenerife, Spain, and Tivoli Portopiccolo Sistiana Resort in northern Italy. Guests can plan their Tivoli escape on the dedicated anniversary website https://90years.tivolihotels.com/en/.
Tivoli Hotels & Resorts was born in 1933 with the opening of Tivoli Avenida Liberdade in the heart of Lisbon. What began as one hotel on the most renowned avenue of the Portuguese capital, has become an iconic collection of hotels and resorts in destinations around the world– from Portugal and The Netherlands to Brazil, Qatar, China, and soon Spain and Italy.
The Timeless Tour by Tivoli is a bespoke 10-night exclusive offer for guests to enjoy a journey among the brand’s five-star hotels in Portugal, with a unique tailor-made experience of luxury, comfort and adventure. The suggested itinerary begins in Lisbon at Tivoli Avenida Liberdade – the birth of the brand’s history, then travels on to Tivoli Palácio de Seteais in Sintra, and finally over to Tivoli Carvoeiro and Tivoli Marina Vilamoura in the Algarve. The tour leads guests through the very best of Portugal, where they'll discover scenic roads, local arts and crafts, and artisanal shops, all behind the wheel of a classic vintage car reminiscent of the 1930’s when the brand launched.
Room 90 delivers exceptional value for guests who stay in a room designed to surprise and enchant with unique 90th anniversary enhancements that make for an unforgettable experience. For instance, the Room 90 at Tivoli Palácio de Seteais includes a two-night stay in the Royal Suite, which is adorned with silver pieces from the 200-hundred-year-old Portuguese brand, Leitão & Irmão, as well as some of the best gastronomic experiences at the hotel, including Dining Delight, the Queens’ Tea and a picnic in the gardens.
At Tivoli Doelen, the Room 90 offer includes a two-night stay in the Rembrandt Suite, where an exact replica of Rembrandt’s painting "The Night Watch" hangs. The package also includes a boat tour on the Amsterdam canals, a private guided tour through the hotel’s neighborhood, two tickets to the Rembrandt Museum, and hotel culinary experiences such as tea service and Dining Delight. This offer is now available in Lisbon, Sintra, Carvoeiro and Vilamoura in Portugal, and Amsterdam.

The History of Tivoli
Opened in March 1933, Tivoli Avenida Liberdade soon became a true landmark of the city and a meeting point for celebrities, heads of state, actors, artists and royalty.
In 1955, Tivoli Palácio de Seteais, an XVIII century palace in the historic town of Sintra, joined the brand, and at the turn of the century, in 1999, the brand added its first resorts in the main tourist destinations of the Algarve, in Vilamoura – with the conveniently located Tivoli Marina Vilamoura – and in Carvoeiro, with the stunning cliffside Tivoli Carvoeiro.
In 2006, Tivoli Hotels & Resorts launched outside Portugal by acquiring its first property in Brazil: the Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte, in Salvador da Bahia, followed by the Tivoli Mofarrej São Paulo, in February 2009.
After being acquired by Minor Hotels, Tivoli expanded into the Middle East in 2018, with three properties in Qatar, and made its Asia debut in 2022 with the launch of Tivoli Chengdu at Cultural Heritage Park in China.
Over these nine decades, several generations of timeless travelers have also left their mark on Tivoli's history: Marlene Dietrich, Beatriz Costa, Jorge Amado, Astor Piazzolla, Maria Callas, Neil Armstrong, Omar Sharif, Montserrat Caballé, Mário Vargas Llosa, Plácido Domingo, Geraldine Chaplin, Andrea Bocelli, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Beyoncé and Jay Z, (among many others), have all called Tivoli home at one time or another.
Tivoli’s doors remain open to welcome new and returning travelers looking for luxurious slow living moments in Portugal, Brazil, Qatar, China, The Netherlands, and very soon in Spain and Italy, with other new and exciting destinations just around the corner.
