Belmond Reid’s Palace is an impressive hotel found in an unbelievable location, simply ideal if you’re looking for the perfect island retreat. If you ever get to the beautiful Portuguese island of Madeira, watching the sunset perched right atop a clifftop will sound dreamy and that’s exactly what you’re going to do at this jaw dropping hotel.
Looking out on Madeira’s Funchal Bay and the Atlantic Ocean from this clifftop vantage point is the best way to start and end any day here and visitors are encouraged to opt out for a starboard suite, if they want to enjoy the most beautiful views around.
Belmond Reid’s Palace will also try to impress you with its three outdoor pools and six restaurants, plus the warm waters and rugged shore – and I’m sure it will succeed. Once you arrive on this Atlantic island, you will be able to visit military fortifications, palaces and even mansions of the sugar trade era, or simply savor those sparkling waters, enjoy windsurfing or experience guided scuba diving.
Guests may also try out the white sand beaches of nearby Porto Santo Island and once the weather gets way too hot, trying out a siesta while surrounded by the cool white furnishings and modestly ornate design of Belmond Reid’s Palace rooms seems like the best way to go.
