The distinguished Reid's Palace, a Belmond Hotel opened its doors over a century ago. Set atop a cluster of cliffs overlooking the Funchal Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel and surrounding subtropical gardens are the perfect place for a restorative visit. You’ll be satiated throughout your stay with tantalising local and seasonal cuisine at the four restaurants – one of which boasts a Michelin star. Although Funchal’s city centre is within easy reach, you can spend your time at the spa, fitness centre, tennis courts and three sparkling pools. Best of all, one offers a sea-level platform for direct sea access.

While its clifftop location gives this hotel an exclusive feel, it’s also just two miles from the city centre of Funchal via the coast. Dine at a variety of local eateries, then explore the shops and Funchal Marina. You’ll also find the beautiful Gothic architecture of Funchal Cathedral here. You can reach Madeira Airport (FNC) by a 14-mile drive along the coast.

The traditional British-style interior gives the hotel a classic feel. When you enter, you’ll come face-to-face with a spacious lobby, whose generous lounge opens onto a terrace overlooking the ocean. An elegant chandelier hangs from the high ceiling, that descends into large, curved archways that lead to the cosy rooms. These havens feature classic decor and subtle pastel accents. Relax in your bathrobe and slippers, while sipping on a free soft drink from the minibar and admire the stunning garden or ocean views from your private balcony.
