Overview

Long-favoured by royals, writers and politicians of old, Madeira’s most famous hotel is undoubtedly Belmond Reids Palace.

This prestigious five-star establishment first opened its doors in 1891 and quickly became a popular destination amongst the higher escalones of Edwardian England. It’s easy to understand why: perched on a cliff overlooking the azure Atlantic Ocean, it’s the perfect hotel for an indulgent and lavish Madeiran experience. Reid’s still retains a very old-world charm – the hotel has four restaurants (where you’ll need to dress for dinner), a sunset cocktail bar and a seaview terrace where afternoon tea is served daily.

There’s also a modern fitness centre with a tennis court, extensive spa facilities and three swimming pools: one heated pool and two seawater pools, with a private terrace leading directly down to the ocean. The rooms themselves are a mix of comfortable modern decor with antique flourishes; bright and spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows and ocean view balconies.

Whether you’re planning the perfect island honeymoon or a luxurious week away, Belmond Reid’s is the quintessential Madeiran hotel.
