The Pestana Vila Lido is perched in an enviable position, directly on the Funchal coast with immediate ocean access. Its iconic cylindrical building has been modernised and each room boasts breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, while the historic old house maintains Madeiran charm. Meander through beautifully manicured gardens, choose from two restaurants and take a dip in the oceanfront pool before a sea dip – easily accessed via a private stairwell.

Lido Promenade is less than a mile away and there’s a large supermarket just across the street, along with several reliable restaurants. You can also grab fresh local produce at Mercado dos Lavradores farmers market, which is three miles from the hotel. Admire the grandeur of Funchal Cathedral, which is just over two miles away, or the delights of the Monte Palace, which is five miles away. The Cabo Girao Skywalk, Europe’s highest cliffside skywalk, can be reached in around ten miles and the lush Laurissilva Forest lies around 13 miles inland. Madeira International Airport is around 16 miles distance.

The hotel’s impressive original architecture combines modern and traditional styles and ensures all rooms offer inspiring views of the sea. In the modern cylindrical building, you’ll find the guest rooms, while the communal areas are housed in the charming 20th Century Manor House, which is surrounded by lush, well-manicured gardens. Spacious rooms all boast balconies which overlook the ocean, garden and cliffs. Standard amenities include a TV, free Wi-Fi and coffee and tea making facilities. The fresh decor includes calming pops of green or dusty pink to match a feature wall, while a quirky headboard adds a dash of character.
