An elegant world-class retreat perched high on a rocky hillside with spectacular Atlantic Ocean views.
This classic and luxurious retreat has been welcoming guests for over a century. The hotel is renowned around the world for its exceptional service, and is highly sophisticated yet never stuffy. Stroll through the beautiful sub-tropical gardens and you’ll find the chic spa tucked away behind the trees. Make your way down to the sea-level terrace and admire the views, or pick a shady spot by one of the three pools. After a relaxed lunch at the pool terrace, enjoy some tennis or golf coaching.
The hotel’s afternoon tea is deservedly world-famous – in the lounge or outside on the terrace, you’ll enjoy a selection of freshly-baked scones, home-made pastries and dainty sandwiches alongside premium quality teas. There’s a range of fine dining options here; the Michelin-starred William Restaurant serves modern European cuisine with international influences, overlooking the Funchal coast; the glamorous Dining Room sparkles with crystal chandeliers and lively themed evenings, while Ristorante Villa Cipriani has excellent Italian dishes on the open-air terrace.
The elegant rooms overlook the botanical gardens or sea. Classic Rooms have partial sea views from the balcony. Book a Superior or a larger Deluxe Room for a balcony or terrace with either garden or sea views, or upgrade for more space and comfort in a Junior Suite Garden with a semi-private terrace overlooking the gardens. The Superior Suite has an extra sitting area and sea views.
The world’s finest hand-picked holidays.
Escapes for total relaxation, with pampering treatments from some of the best therapists, personalised wellness programmes and energising activities.
Perched on a clifftop amongst 10 acres of sub-tropical gardens, just a 10-minute walk from the promenade which stretches along the resort, and a 10-minute drive from the Old Town
