Savoy Palace Opens on the island of Madeira, Portugal

The much-anticipated opening of Savoy Palace, the only Leading Hotels of the World affiliate on the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira has arrived. The new Savoy Signature property opened July 1st in the capital city of Funchal and is set to be a game changer for the destination in terms of contemporary luxury hotel offerings.

Prominent in Funchal’s skyline within walking distance to the Old Town, Savoy Palace has been built on the site of the former Savoy Hotel. The new five-star hotel is luxury on a large scale, featuring 352 rooms and suites, a rooftop lounge with panoramic views, terraced gardens, meeting spaces, multiple pools, an array of trendy restaurants and bars, as well as a ‘boutique-hotel-within-a-hotel’ offering exclusive penthouse accommodations.

With interiors by Nini Andrade Silva, one of Madeira’s most renowned interior designers, in partnership with RH+ Arquitectos, the hotel’s aesthetic brings the surrounding landscape and culture of the island into focus to showcase the absolute best Madeira has to offer.

One of the highlights of Savoy Palace is its expansive 33,000 square-foot spa, featuring eleven treatment rooms, a halo therapy room, sensory showers, ice fountain, Turkish hammam, beauty bar and more. The treatment menu encompasses an abundant selection of signature facials, massages, and holistic healing rituals inspired by the Laurissilva Forest – Madeira’s UNESCO World Heritage site and the largest surviving laurel forest in the world.

Madeira Island, also known as “The Garden Island of The Atlantic” was recognized for the fifth consecutive year as Europe's 'Leading Island Destination' at the World Travel Awards 2018.  Famed for its fortified wine and lush exotic landscapes, the Portuguese outpost has as of late, garnered a reputation for being a hot destination for adventure travel with hiking, canyoning and paragliding, to the destination’s famous street tobogganing. The Atlantic archipelago also offers a yearly calendar rich in festivities, such as The Carnival, the Flower Festival, and the Madeira Wine Festival as well as the world-famous Madeira New Year's Eve fireworks display, which holds a Guinness World Record.
