The Savoy Palace, located a short, picturesque walk from Funchal’s lovely Old Town, offers an exceptional modern approach on island hospitality. The striking, curved structure houses elegant guestrooms outfitted with high-end materials and balconies from which to enjoy the seaside views.

Santo da Serra, the breathtaking 27-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, is one of the most beautiful natural environments you could imagine. The finest golf and country club is the perfect place to escape the rush and bustle of everyday life.

The Palheiro golf course, which has 18 holes, is one of Europe’s most picturesque. The par 72 championship course winds through a beautiful environment of maritime pine and botanical woodland, interspersed with lush, subtropical vegetation. At over 500m above sea level, the position offers breathtaking views of Madeira’s rugged skyline and the broad Atlantic Ocean.
