With posh hotels, a classy capital and plenty of vineyards, the Portuguese isle of Madeira’s made for luxury holidays.

Stylish hotels

Madeira is a tiny island that punches way above its weight. The volcanic landscape, colourful flora and fauna, world-famous wine, levada walking trails — they’re all unique to this little place in the Atlantic Ocean. So it comes as no surprise that the hotels are just as high-hitting. Take the Hotel Riu Palace Madeira — it stacks up two big ocean-view pools and a mini spa. And the Enotel Lido Madeira lines up four top-shelf bars.

Chic resorts

Our luxury hotels are sprinkled all over Madeira. So you could wind up in Funchal, the swish island capital. Or perhaps Canico de Baixo, where chic villas and hotels cling to volcanic cliffs. Santa Cruz is a hit with families seeking a shot of luxury, thanks to its four-star hotels and waterpark. Then there’s the tiny resort of Calheta, home to a rare stretch of sandy beach.

Check out our luxury holidays to Madeira for a fab line-up of five-star All Inclusive hotels.
