Set amid ten acres of subtropical gardens on clifftops that overlook the Atlantic Ocean, Belmond Reid’s Palace is a standard-bearer for excellence, complementing its calm surroundings with superb service and hospitality. It’s a true luxury hideaway, just north of the Canary Islands and flung some 450 miles west of Africa. It’s an exclusive slice of paradise, too, just 36 miles from top to bottom, enjoying a perfectly sunny disposition. Head out to explore it on meandering hikes, idyllic boat cruises or simply on a walk through the hotel’s famous gardens.
With over a century of experience hosting discerning guests, the Belmond Reid’s Palace is all old world charm and sophisticated elegance. Each room is immaculately dressed in dark wood furniture and floral drapes as private balconies and patios feature arresting views over the Atlantic Ocean or the botanical gardens’ verdure. It’s the perfect setting for an al fresco dinner while marble bathrooms offer further luxury. If you’re looking for something extra special, book into one of the indulgent suites. Bright, airy and utterly charming, they’re a true highlight.
From elegant fine dining to casual poolside snacks, the food and drink at Reid's Palace is one of the hotel's major attractions. The famous Ristorante Villa Cipriani is particularly good, with a menu of refined Italian favourites matched with majestic views across the ocean from its magical hilltop location. If you’d rather a slower pace, perhaps opt for a grill on the Pool Terrace or take your breakfast in the Garden Room where fresh juices and champagne accompany extensive buffet spreads. The afternoon tea is equally enticing, with finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and homemade pastries matched with a selection of 24 teas and some more champagne indulgence.
Gentle sea breezes and a secluded location make the spa a perfect spot for a relaxing, rejuvenating treatment. There are also three swimming pools with views across the Atlantic, a fitness room, tennis courts and a boutique selling hand-made souvenirs including the famed Madeira embroidery. Children are also more than welcome at the hotel, and a number of activities are particularly popular with both older and younger guests, including dolphin watching, jeep safaris, levada canal walks and even helicopter flights.
