Funchal is a cosmopolitan city that has a charm of its own. The picturesque capital of the island of Madeira exudes style and substance that is beyond description. The breathtaking beauty of the city is enhanced by its location. The city faces the blue Atlantic Ocean against a backdrop of mountains. The combination of beautiful and sunny coasts, cool banana plantations and widespread gardens, where flowers bloom throughout the year, offers mesmerizing sights to any visitor. The capital of Madeira has a dual character. It is a relaxing area lush with greenery during the day, but at night the city comes into its own.
Surrounded by tropical botanical gardens, the Belmond Reid’s Palace is perched on a cliff-top above the picturesque harbor of Funchal. The luxury hotel has been welcoming guests for more than a century, meaning the hotel is built on character and charm.
