Set on cliff tops overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this legendary luxury hotel and spa resort in Madeira has, for over a century, been a standard-bearer for excellence.
The resort is located on ten acres of subtropical gardens, boasts enviable access to the sea, an extraordinary oceanfront spa, and is within walking distance of Funchal’s shops, restaurants and night-life.
Reid's Palace Hotel offers superb service, excellent hospitality and delicious culinary experiences in calm and exclusive surroundings. It was here that Sir Winston Churchill painted and wrote his war memoirs, and also where Sir George Bernard Shaw learned to master the tango.
Reid's Palace Hotel in Madeira is the perfect place to be pampered and to let the stress of modern life drift away.
Reid’s is set in ten acres of lush semi-tropical gardens, where hanging vines merge with glorious displays of geraniums, hibiscus and salvias. Guests find it the perfect place to relax and discover the beauty of the plants and birds that make Madeira such a magical place.
Reid’s gardeners ensure that the garden is a riot of colour throughout the year. Featuring trees from all over the world, including Brazil, China, North and South America, Australia, Africa, Korea and Japan alongside flowering shrubs, including hibiscus, bougainvillea, mimosa, wisteria and rhododendron, and a rich variety of the brilliant flowers that have earned Madeira its title as the ‘Garden of the Atlantic’.
The gardens are synonymous with Reid's Palace and in bygone days a walk in the garden would bring you upon Sir Winston Churchill reflecting on his memoirs, or Sir George Bernard Shaw mastering the finer points of the tango on the lawns.
