A swish and modern looking property in one of the island’s most favoured locations, with relatively easy access to all areas of interest.
The elegant and stylish minimalist approach attracts many discerning guests who prefer modern facilities to some of the traditional offering found in older establishments.
The large and well-equipped spa, with two indoor pools, is especially popular and a children’s club is an unusual facility on the island.
Plush looking office block like building in 2 sections with pristine steel and white painted trim. Large and airy glass sided balconies face the Atlantic Ocean and enjoy the sun for much of the day.
A massive modern canopied entrance protects the glass-panelled frontage, approached along a sweeping driveway.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 2004

The swish and modern interior is rather stark and minimalist in its decor and furnishings. The cavernous lobby features long black sofas and other intimate but cool areas of seating.
A bar is grey and businesslike with tall stools at the servery. A large hall takes on the form of an exhibition centre which proves popular with those attending conferences. Tall ceilings add to the style and elegance.
The main restaurant is smart and welcoming although lacking Portuguese or Madeiran character. A piano bar is intimate and popular.
A lift transfers guests down to an attractive and well-maintained lido style flat area at the side of the sea. There is an ample supply of comfortable loungers on the spacious surrounds and a bar with extra setting is located to one side.
The infinity pool effect is especially stylish. A terrace at the side of the main restaurant has white furnishings and looks out over a well-manicured lawn with shrubs and palm trees.
Area Type: On the edge of the rocky coastline, to the SW of Funchal’s city centre, at the start of the main stretch of quality orientated properties with a plentiful supply of shops, bars and restaurants all around. The extensive Lido facility with its shopping centre and mid-range restaurants is 220m along the road and buses stop outside every few minutes.
Nearest beach: 220m (Lido)
