About us

We are Discovery Hotel Management

We are discovery hotel management. We were formed in 2014 to rehabilitate and manage a range of real estate assets.

We work to make a difference in everything we do, and ensure that no one forgets what they experienced with us. To accomplish this, in addition to our informal attitude, we are authentic: each DHM hotel has its own identity, which respects the place and culture where it is located, its cuisine, traditions and natural surroundings. And if our suggestions don’t offer the experience you imagined, why not challenge us to create it for you?

We know that we are capable of all this while optimising the management, sustainability and performance of our hotels and teams.

Our experiences

For DHM, experiencing our hotels goes far beyond a mere stay.

We want to create memories, unique experiences, and cultivate the mind, body and soul.

That’s why we have a team dedicated to thinking about activities—whether it’s sports, contact with nature or local culture—to make them memorable experiences.

We can arrange a picnic in a secret place, go to Dona Otília’s house for her to teach you how to make her famous sausages, or take a ride on an ox cart around the Sete Cidades Lake.

Set off on a journey of discovery.

DHM is its people

In order to deliver the best to our customers we need the best with us.

That’s why we are inspired by the ancestral tribal spirit, where common values and goals guide a community. We live according to the spirit that each one of us is part of a larger whole.

Our values are the glue that cements our team and the beacons for our common path:


The unexpected is a constant. Faced with this, we are determined and act to add value to the organisation.


A team is more than the sum of its parts; it is the result of an attitude that always puts the collective interest before that of the individual. Everyone contributes to a good working environment and the strengthening of group spirit.


Work stops being work when it's fun. We embody a passion for the business through an open-minded attitude and a positive approach to challenges.


We identify problems and opportunities, we question old recipes and find new solutions.


We are focused on constant improvement, and permanent non-conformism. The search for perfection is a path that is travelled every day.


Combinamos o charme dos nossos hotéis com uma equipa profissional e dedicada que vai cuidar de todos os detalhes para os dias mais importantes da sua vida.
