Luxuriously modern but with an old-school elegance, this five-star hotel in Madeira’s buzzing capital promises a truly glamorous stay overlooking the island’s sunny southern coast.
Offering plentiful first-class facilities wrapped up in sleek, contemporary architecture, The Cliff Bay feels chic and exclusive throughout. Rooms are spacious, bright and classically styled, with extra-large beds and sizeable balconies – some with lovely views of the sea or the harbour.
The large outdoor pool almost feels like it runs straight into the ocean – surrounded by sunloungers that look out to the horizon, it’s a perfect place to enjoy a sunset cocktail. The spa, too, is a haven of tranquility, with personalised treatments and an outdoor gazebo commanding views over the bay.
Dining at the hotel is outstanding, with a two-Michelin-starred restaurant specialising in Mediterranean haute cuisine. Other eating options include themed buffets and a bistro with live music. An unbeatable location in the heart of Funchal also means the capital’s many fabulous restaurants and bars are within strolling distance. Funchal’s picturesque marina is a short walk away, too, as are some of Madeira’s most beautiful attractions, including the Santa Clara Monastery.
A smart and sophisticated hotel close to the heart of Funchal’s Old Town, The Cliff Bay is a world-class resort that’s perfect for a luxury escape, as well as an excellent base for exploring the Madeiran capital’s rich culture and history.
