Aquapura is a hotel, villa and spa resort located at Vale Abraão,  Lamego, in Portugal. Surrounded by stunning natural scenery, the 19th-century manor house overlooks the Douro River from the south bank. The luxurious resort consists of a hotel with 50 rooms, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, 1 wine room and a 2200m² spa including 10 treatment rooms. The resort also houses 21 villa apartments all with private swimming pools.


A 24hr business centre is available to all guests. Aquapura is a high class luxury resort so all aspects of design from architecture, location and even the BEMS were given the highest consideration and the ability of the Cylon system to accommodate design changes was key. The Cylon Building Energy Management System (BEMS) at this 5 star location was installed, by the Cylon system integrator, Dosapac.


“A project of this class required a huge amount of teamwork. With Cylon we had the perfect partnership to build the best team to fulfil our requirements”

Miguel Simões de Almeida, Managing Director, Aquapura
