Bursting with striking beauty, rich history and culture, and dramatic landscapes, the tiny volcanic island of Madeira – just off the coast of Portugal – is a destination that begs to be explored; and a luxe, five-star stay at Royal Savoy is the ideal launchpad. Perfectly situated on the main promenade in Funchal, the hotel offers direct ocean access, with the old town just a 20-minute walk away. Also known as the ‘Pearl of the Atlantic’, this island hideaway has something for travellers of all styles. Spend your days exploring the famed black-sand beaches, head to the glass-bottom lookout at Cabo Girão, perched 580m above the ground, or move at a gentler pace and fill your time wine tasting the local drop – Maderia, of course.
Within this grand property, you'll find beautifully appointed rooms, a well-equipped gym, hairdresser, spa, direct beach access and three outdoor pools, including two gleaming lagoon-style pools – including one with a swim-up bar, serving perfectly mixed classic cocktails. Head to Armada Restaurant for flavoursome fare or Piano Bar for live music and handcrafted drinks.
Penthouse Rooftop Suite Upgrade: The two-bedroom rooftop penthouse suite awaits to envelope you in superb luxury with two bathrooms, a jacuzzi bathtub and expansive living area plus a wide balcony overlooking the glistening ocean and Funchal’s skyline.
