Chinese Tourism in Portugal yet to recover, after record drop in 2020

United Hotels of Portugal is a brand owned by FHG Hotel Representatives, Lda, held 100% by Portuguese companies that represent and operate independent hotels.

The brand serves as a commercial umbrella for communicating with national and international trade. Each hotel retains its own brand and positioning.

Each hotel unit is free to develop a close relationship with its guests without losing its own brand while enhancing its own personality. However, it benefits from commercial know-how covering technology and distribution, international promotion and marketing capabilities.
