Overview

This iconic hotel has been open for over a century and now boasts a Michelin star restaurant, William Restaurant. Set in botanical gardens and with traditional British decor, this property is a luxurious old world hotel. It has played host to famous past guests including Winston Churchill and allows you to absorb Funchal Bay views, while sipping a famous afternoon tea.

Enjoy personal touches from the moment you check in, with the receptionist accompanying you to your room to show you around. The traditional British style of Belmond Reid's Palace gives an old feel to this luxurious resort and it is known for its Afternoon Tea, perfect to enjoy while taking in the bay views.

Relax in your cosy room and make use of the modern facilities such as free WiFi to stay in touch with loved ones at home. Relax in your bathrobe and slippers, while enjoying a free soft drink from the replenished minibar. Upgrade to a deluxe room for more space, and being set in a better location they offer views over the botanical gardens or out to the ocean.

Start your day with breakfast with a view in the Pool Terrace Restaurant, where you can also enjoy drinks and snacks through the day later on. A choice of dining restaurants provide a mix of local and Italian cuisine. Every Monday, enjoy two different dining options; exquisite Italian cuisine made with the best local products at Ristorante Villa Cipriani and a menu inspired by the Mediterranean with a stunning view over Funchal's Bay at the Cocktail Bar.

The Afternoon Tea is one of the highlights of this property. A popular choice with guests, you need to book in advance to take advantage of this selection of freshly baked pastries, complimented by a selection of teas. Accompany this with a glass of Champagne and take in the views of the hotel and gardens from your terrace location.

Wander down the steps from the pool area and enjoy the lido, with comfortable sun loungers to enjoy the weather and top up the tan. A small kids pool and kids club are ideal distractions for the younger guests while you relax and soak up the sun.

The more modern feeling SPA provides pampering treatments and sea views. Try one of the day or week programmes with brands including Aromatherapy Associates and Natura Bissé. Relax for each treatment on your own private terrace with sea views, creating the perfect environment to unwind.

Another great way to relax and enjoy this resort is exploring the botanical gardens that surround it. Take in the beauty of nature and enjoy the sunshine, with views over Funchal. Or take a walk in to the town and experience a bit of local food and shopping.
