Luxury Holidays At Belmond Reid's Palace

Set on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Funchal and Atlantic Ocean, Belmond Reid’s Palace has been a standard-bearer for excellence on Madeira for over a century. Its roll-call of celebrities began with Empress Elisabeth I of Austria - and in its timeless atmosphere, you still almost expect to spot Winston Churchill taking Afternoon Tea on the terrace or George Bernard Shaw mastering the tango on the lawn.

The lush gardens, where hanging vines merge with glorious geraniums, hibiscus and salvias, invite you to bask in the island’s sub-tropical climate, while in many of the guest rooms and suites, delicate pastel tones, original Anglo-Portuguese furnishings and carved wooden antiques reinforce the traditional ambience. The hotel's gourmet William Restaurant has recently earned a Michelin Star and offers the most exquisite, contemporary cuisine for dinner, while the range of leisure facilities includes tennis courts with professional instruction, swimming pools, a spa, fitness room, boutique and a children's club.

Dining & Gourmet

Belmond Reid's Palace is blessed with having some of the best fine dining restaurants in Funchal, if not the entire island of Madeira. The William Restaurant is the fine dining centrepiece at this historic luxury hotel, with fresh seasonal ingredients artfully conjured into innovative, contemporary cuisine so acclaimed it as earned the restaurant its first Michelin Star. During your stay, don't miss the hotel's renowned Afternoon Tea on the terrace, while the Ristorante Villa Cipriani promises locally-sourced Italian cuisine and simply stunning sea views from its clifftop spot.


From excursions such as dolphin-watching and Jeep safaris, to the children's hangers in the wardrobes, Belmond Reid's Palace has everything covered for families. Children receive a drawing kit on arrival, but the real fun starts at the Fun@Reid's programme with indoor and outdoor play areas for 3 to 9-year-olds.


Belmond Reid's Palace is a wonderful option for a sophisticated wedding, offering sublime options for ceremonies overlooking the sea. The Palm Garden is a fabulous option for a summer wedding, while in the cooler months, Salon 28 is the perfect option for an intimate indoor ceremony. The hotel staff are adept at organising all those special details, including classic wedding cars for a timelessly elegant arrival and lavish receptions.


The hotel provides a wonderful backdrop to memorable romantic proposals, anniversaries and honeymoons, where extra special touches, such as private moonlight dinners, allow for unforgettably romantic memories to cherish.
