Portugal Confidential Travel & Lifestyle (at PortugalConfidential.com) is a luxury digital media platform, in English, promoting the best of Portugal to aspiring visitors, international ex-pats living in the country, and Portuguese nationals. The content strategy is to engage an upscale audience with features on high-end hotels, fine dining, designer shopping, trendy bars, sophisticated living, and more.
Due to its recognition and reputation for knowledge of high-end travel resources, Portugal Confidential has launched Portugal Confidential Experiences, a destination management consultancy for inbound travelers to the country. Complete itineraries are designed for clients attracted by the PC website and referred through an agent partner. The itineraries include attention to detail in selecting luxury hotels, identifying unique tours and experiences, booking private drivers, and making reservations at hotspot restaurants.
Based in Vilamoura, in the Algarve region, Portugal Confidential debuted in 2010. At that time, the only online resources about Portugal depicted the country’s heritage and culture. The website was the first to identify the country as a desirable destination for contemporary and cosmopolitan travelers.
In addition to profiling “what’s new” and “what’s special” in Portugal, over the years, Portugal Confidential has interviewed Portuguese actors, artists, fashion designers, athletes, and chefs for its “Confidentially Speaking…” column, published Haute & Cool Cuisine in Portugal and Best of Lisbon ebooks, and developed microsites for LGBTI+ and family audiences.
Portugal Confidential has a significant following in social media too. All PC-produced content is promoted across the key social media platforms, extending the message much further into the “luxury lifestyle” market across the world. Because of this reach, Portugal Confidential is proud to include important brands in luxury hospitality as sponsors, collaborators, and partners.
Portugal Confidential’s influence is growing further with new initiatives in luxury villa rentals promotion and special events management.
