The Shipyard Angra 

A sleek steamship-style botlhole

Close to the historic harbour, this boutique apartotel is a great base for everyone from solo explorers to families.

In Angra do Heroísmo’s old industrial district, The Shipyard Angra provides a dose of eye-catching modernity in this World Heritage town. Inspired by the proximity of the historical harbour, the exterior was designed to resemble an old sailing ship, while the minimalist yet warm contemporary interior with its clean-cut timbers, industrial light fittings and a soft-blue-and-white colour scheme provides a chic update on the classic nautical theme. There’s a feeling of airiness everywhere - expect rooms to have generous living spaces that come with smart little kitchens.

Why we love The Shipyard Angra

  • An intimate hotel with just 29 studios and apartments.

  • Close to the marina for island hopping and seasonal whale watching.

  • Free hotel parking. Hire a car and drive up to Biscoitos’ black rock natural pools.

  • Just a 10-minute drive to the forts, cathedrals and convents in the heritage town centre.
