The Vine - Funchal, Madeira, Portugal - Boutique Hotel

Located in the heart of Funchal, Madeira's charming and picturesque capital, the hotel stands near the town's historic centre, cathedral, harbor and Dolce Vita Shopping Centre.

Generous space and pared-down sophistication are the trademarks of this superb new property, which takes its name from the local vines used to make the island's world-famous Madeira wine. Interiors reflect the unique vision of award-winning Portuguese designer Nini Andrade Silva, whose 79 rooms and suites offer the perfect blend of top-of-the-line amenities, high-tech facilities and, in some cases, breathtaking views over the city or harbour. The Vine succeeds in combining luxurious surroundings with personalised service and outstanding hospitality – ideal both for guests travelling on business and those visiting for pleasure.

For those in need of a little something extra, The Vine also offers a limousine service, in-room check-in and welcome massage to ensure that guests can begin the process of rejuvenation as soon as possible. Beyond that, The Vine features an exclusive Jacuzzi, fitness centre and luxury spa, which offers signature Vinotherapy treatments ranging from the therapeutic to the sensual, all delivered in a relaxed and friendly environment sure to detox and revitalise the body while relaxing and refreshing the mind.

Hotel social life, meanwhile, revolves around a lobby lounge offering all-day dining, a heated rooftop swimming pool and open-air bar – aptly named 360º for its spectacular views - and a gourmet rooftop restaurant with panoramic views: UVA. The latter, which takes its name from the Portuguese word for grape, offers "divine dining" arranged by executive chef Thomas Faudry under the supervision of three-star Michelin "maestro" Antoine Westermann, whose expertise in French cuisine is complemented by the use of mouth-wateringly fresh and natural produce from around the island. For business and entertaining, The Vine offers a 140-square-metre event space equipped with all the latest technology, a perfect setting for anything from a conference to a wedding banquet.
