Positioned on a hillside in one of Funchal’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, this grand five-star hotel commands unparalleled views over the nearby bay – and nowhere more so than from its adult-only rooftop infinity pool, which offers what must be one of the finest panoramas of Madeira’s picturesque southern coast.
The hotel’s main pool is also a treat, spanned by an ornate bridge and surrounded by cushioned loungers. Children have their own pool, too, whilst adults can enjoy some pampering in the spa.
Rooms are especially spacious and elegantly designed, with plush furnishings and marble touches. All come with a balcony – some overlook the city or the lush gardens, while others have sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Suitably upscale in-room comforts include espresso machines, roomy showers and thick bathrobes.
The hotel’s restaurants – all cool, contemporary and beautifully designed – specialise in fine-dining takes on Portuguese food, while the smartly decorated bars are perfect for unwinding with a sea-view tipple. If you’d rather dine out, Funchal itself is a great place to explore the island’s gastronomy, with plenty of restaurants within easy strolling distance. Plus, if you've booked to stay at this hotel on a half board or full board basis, you'll also receive credit to enjoy your dinner in any of the other Savoy hotels in Funchal or Calheta.
A first-class hotel with superb facilities in the heart of Madeira’s vibrant capital, the Savoy Place is an elegant addition to the island’s top-end tourism scene
