Perched on a cliff edge above Funchal Bay amid sub-tropical gardens overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Belmond Reid’s Palace offers guests an unbeatable location for their stay on Madeira. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for an intimate hotel exuding old-world charm and glamour, luxury, high-class dining options, as well as a family friendly environment. It’s a 30-minute drive from Funchal airport and the hotel can arrange transfers in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes-Benz.
Treatments using well-known spa product brands Natura Bisé and Aromatherapy Associates are carried out in tranquil treatment rooms each with their own ocean view and private terrace. The indoor-outdoor therapy suite features its own private whirlpool.
Rooms at the Belmond Reid's Palace are tastefully decorated, exuding old-world charm and a country cottage look. They all have balconies or verandas for views of the Atlantic Ocean or the botanic gardens, as well as king beds, marble bathrooms, satellite TV and DVD player, luxury bathroom amenities and turndown service. Deluxe Rooms are the largest and offer the best sea views in the hotel.
Take a dip in one of the hotel’s three pools; two seawater and one heated with freshwater, or jump straight into the sea from the special platform, get fit in the hotel gym, or unwind in the sauna or steam room. If you want to hone your backhand, the hotel has two tennis courts and lessons with its resident instructor can easily be arranged. Children are also well catered for at the hotel, enjoying their own pool, indoor play space, a thatched playhouse and tennis lessons supervised by Reid’s Angels child minders.
The Michelin-starred William Restaurant offers an extensive gourmet menu. Madeira's finest seasonal ingredients are brought to life with inventive, contemporary flair. Innovative flavours can be enjoyed against a backdrop of spectacular panoramic views. The Dining Room is a formal affair, with glamorous décor, that plays host to a dinner dance on Mondays, and a champagne gala buffet on Sundays. Ristorante Villa Cipriani serves Italian dishes on its open-air terrace with sea views, while the Cocktail Bar is the choice for a pre-dinner refreshment. Or you could enjoy afternoon tea on the Tea Terrace.
