On Portugal's Atlantic island of Madeira, Orient-Express Hotels' Reid's Palace, a Leading Hotel of the World, has been the vacation destination of choice for Europe's most refined travelers for more than a hundred years. Set within its lush and peaceful sub-tropical gardens, Reid's Palace commands a spectacular cliff-top position with breathtaking views of the bay of Funchal and the Atlantic Ocean. With its reputation for excellence and discreet service, Reid's Palace provides all that the modern traveller could wish for with a particular emphasis on individual care and attention. An ambience of relaxed charm and elegance combines with flexibility and understanding, to suit each clients needs. Reid's Palace is the ideal place at which to relax, be pampered and to let the stress of modern life drift away in a gentle sea breeze.
It was our third visit to Reid's Palace (part of the Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises collection), and we were welcomed "home" as we always are, by the friendly staff. For more than 100 years, this renowned hotel has been welcoming guests to its clifftop location overlooking the Bay of Funchal and the Atlantic. During the day, our children play in the seawater pool or the ocean (an outdoor elevator takes you down to sea level for watersports), while my husband makes his way to the course for championship golf. As for me, I relax at the brand-new spa and enjoy the La Prairie treatments.
