Just opened on Madeira – the Turim Santa Maria Hotel

The Turim Santa Maria Hotel was a classic mid-century hotel in Funchal, and has been completely restored to its 1964 chique. It opened last month.

Set in Funchal, the retro-luxe Santa Maria Hotel features 92 rooms with a restaurant, a bar and a rooftop lounge with city and
 sea views - and there is also a rooftop swimming pool.


Madeira saw three new luxury hotels opening this summer. The Savoy Palace, Les Suites at The Cliff Bay and Pestana Churchill Bay are all open on the Portuguese island in the South Atlantic.

The Madeira Islands, an archipelago 750 miles southwest of Lisbon in the Atlantic Ocean, has a nearly perfect climate—warm all winter and never too hot in summer. Ancient volcanic cliffs that rise dramatically from the sea dominate Madeira’s fascinating landscape, with beautiful flora and fauna that lead to comparisons of Madeira with Hawaii.
