The beginning

SANA was born in 1999 with SANA Capitol, near Marquês de Pombal. With more than 23 years of history, the company has grown steadily, cementing its presence in the market through the quality of its products, the excellence of its service and the multiplicity of experiences it provides.

SANA is divided into 6 Concepts developed with the needs of different audiences in mind: Myriad by SANA - a unique hotel, differentiated in terms of its infrastructure (the hotel is built right on the river) and with an extraordinary location in Parque das Nações; EPIC - five-star hotels in Lisbon, the Algarve and Luanda; Excellence - a group of four-star hotels; Style - three-star hotels; Residence - a concept developed with long-term stays in mind. These are fully equipped flats, inserted in the hotels in Berlin and Luanda, which offer the service, hospitality and comfort of the hotel itself; and Evolution - are bold tourist developments, with a very high level of incorporated technology, and for an urban customer adapted to new technologies.

The result of this strategy is the Group's signature "Beyond Your Expectations". An aspirational signature, which translates into a great brand promise, based on the main values and excellent services it offers.

The importance of the sub-brand

As part of SANA's sustained growth, the opening of EPIC SANA Lisboa Hotel and EPIC SANA Algarve Hotel in March 2013 represented the entry of the EPIC sub-brand in the Portuguese market.

The name says it all: EPIC is a category of five-star hotels that know how to provide luxury and elegance in every space, rigor and personalization in the service, exclusivity and refinement in every service. This is the attitude present in the comfort of each room, in the refinement of each meal, in the sophisticated meeting rooms and in the tranquillity of the leisure and well-being spaces.

This concept, which was already present in Angola with the opening of the EPIC SANA Luanda in 2011, was immediately recognised for the excellence of the service it provides both in the domestic and international markets. Proof of this recognition has been seen in the award of prestigious national and international prizes.

As part of the group's expansion strategy, the EPIC sub-brand saw its hotel portfolio increase with the opening at the end of 2021 of the EPIC SANA Marquês. This new five-star unit located in the heart of the city of Lisbon contributed to reinforce SANA's positioning as a reference in the luxury hotel market at national and international level.

A varied offer

The SANA Experiences world brings together a diversified offer in the restaurant, entertainment and wellness areas.

SANA has followed the trend of investing in services that complement the accommodation experience of guests, for work or leisure, and which are also open to the general public.

In terms of gastronomy, an area in which the group has invested heavily, it has created differentiating spaces, investing in the quality of its products and in hiring renowned executive chefs who have experience and recognition in the market. Examples of this are the restaurants, River Lounge, at Myriad by SANA, Flor-de-Lis, at the EPIC SANA Lisboa, Al Quimia and UDDO, at the EPIC SANA Algarve, Allora and Koji, at the EPIC SANA Marquês, and Mediterrâneo at SANA Malhoa. Also as a distinctive experience, Switch is positioned as an evening and multifaceted space in the Angolan capital, allowing the client to live and enjoy various experiences without having to move to another location.

The SAYANNA Wellness & SPA brand emerges to complement the wellness experience and is present in the Myriad by SANA hotels, in the four EPIC hotels and in the SANA Malhoa Hotel.

In catering, SANA also has four projects outside hotel units: A Pastorinha, an emblematic restaurant on Carcavelos Beach, SUD Lisboa, a restaurant and events space that opened in 2017, Fifty Seconds by Martin Berasategui, which opened in November 2018 and has a Michelin star, and Bread & Friends, which represents a new and modern concept of bakery, pastry shop and coffee shop in Lisbon city centre.
