Belmond Reid´s Palace

Belmond Reid´s Palace is an iconic hotel located in Madeira, Portugal, west of Funchal Bay. It is the famous hotel where Sir Winston Churchill worked on his memoirs, and Sir George Bernard Shaw mastered the tango. Additionally, the imposing structure sits majestically atop the cliff overlooking Funchal Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Sitting in the heart of the capital, restaurants, shops, and museums surround it and offer fabulous views all year round.


The hotel dates back to 1891, when William Reid, a Scotsman, decided to build a hotel to live away from the freezing Scottish cold. While he didn't see his dream come true, the hotel became famous as soon as it opened. Even today, cultural heritage is visible in the building structure. Although the renovation has made it lighter and bright, the traditional style has not diminished completely. As a result, this hotel has been the top choice for tourists who have wanted to stretch out and relax in Madeira for over a century.

Spread over ten acres of land, it houses lush, sub-tropical gardens. Also, the gardens are famous worldwide for their beautiful riot of colors. Since Madeira is called 'Garden of the Atlantic,' you can imagine Reid's gardens synonymous with the title.

It has a superb location with the port and the town merely a 15 minutes walk away. Besides, hotel guests can easily walk to the Funchal downtown area to shop, eat, and enjoy the island's nightlife. And for those who don't want to trouble their feet, there is a complimentary hotel shuttle service. This will take them across the quaint streets. The airport is a 20 minutes drive and has direct access to the beach via an elevator.

Suites and Rooms

The central hotel accommodates 163, including the presidential suites, suites, and rooms. Each room showcases a traditional style combined with modern comforts. Moreover, they house luxury furnishing with an en-suite bathroom and a balcony or patio. The categories are:

  • Garden Junior Suite: Located in the garden wing, this suite can accommodate up to 3 guests with an extra bed. They feature a private patio offering views of the gardens, a marble bathroom, and a sitting area.

  • Superior Room: These rooms define style and tranquility. The pastel-shaded décor has antique furniture and an outdoor dining area overlooking the lush greenery and clear blue lagoon.

  • Deluxe Junior Suite: Like the Garden Junior Suites, the Deluxe Junior Suites also have a sitting area and a marble bathroom. But their patios or balconies offer views of the stunningly beautiful sea. Also, two guests can easily accommodate one of these.

  • Deluxe Rooms: Called for their spacious living areas, these rooms feature large, covered balconies with fantastic views of the sea or patios with a relaxing view of the iconic gardens.

  • Suites: The entire selection of suites available at Belmond Reid's is beautiful. Each features a unique style, complete with distinct décor. The guests staying here can enjoy pure luxury and relaxation with impressive views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Here a team of professionals serves both contemporary and creative cuisine. Additionally, they combine innovative flavors and international cooking techniques to create their benchmark delicacies.

For those who love Italian cuisine, there's Ristorante Villa Cipriani. It is a fine Italian restaurant in the building adjacent to the hotel. With its cliff-side location, Villa Cipriani offers a rooftop experience on its terrace. Moreover, it is a great place to enjoy a quiet, romantic evening with great food and friendly service.

Reid's has long been famed for its afternoon tea. It is traditionally served with finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream on the hotel's panoramic terrace. Guests enjoy a civilized afternoon sitting on quaint wicker chairs across the monochrome-tiled floor that overlooks Funchal Bay. Reid's afternoon tea has established itself as an institution visitors never fail to miss.

Equally famous is its Manager's weekly cocktail reception. It is a formal event where guests must dress in jackets and ties. Besides, it is an excellent opportunity to meet the staff and socialize with other guests while enjoying complimentary canapés, champagne, and cocktails. Guests can also order snacks and other drinks too.

Swimming Pools

The Reids Palace a Belmond Hotel Madeira, also houses two swimming pools on the main deck. One has heated seawater, while the other is filled with fresh water. Besides, plenty of pool chairs surround them. The staff serves food and cocktails here during the day to enjoy themselves without having to get off their chairs.

They can see the waves of the majestic Atlantic Ocean crash on the cliff below the deck. A long set of stairs extends to the ocean level. Some deck chairs and beds are placed here too. There is also a sea pool where the ocean slashes.

Other Facilities

Aside from these, the hotel also offers guests a wide range of amenities. These include two tennis courts, a hair salon, a games room, a minibar, Wi-Fi, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a gift shop, and a full spa. Also, the spa neatly tucks in the gardens.
