Pestana Royal Premium All Inclusive Ocean & Spa Resort
The 5-star Pestana Royal Premium All Inclusive Ocean & Spa Resort is a luxurious resort on a clifftop above the Atlantic Ocean. Funchal, the island’s capital, is around 10 minutes’ drive away.
Boasting a flashy 5 star rating and situated in Madeira’s colourful capital, Pestana Royal Premium Ocean Resort & Spa is an All Inclusive paradise.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with Cabo Girãoa appearing in the distance, you can wake up to unbeatable vistas. When you’re not lapping up your new surroundings, laze around two pools, relax in the spa complete with treatment rooms and take advantage of bars serving cocktails on tap.
Facilities include two outdoor swimming pools with panoramic ocean views, and four restaurants — one buffet, where all-inclusive meals will be served, and three à la carte, which offer specialised cuisine for a supplement.
The beautiful Pestana Royal is an All Inclusive hotel set on the Cabo Girao hillside. Offering stunning views across the ocean, this hotel is the perfect option to explore and enjoy the wonderful island of Madeira.
Formosa Beach, which is composed of black sand and volcanic pebbles, is five minutes’ walk from the hotel, and the famous hilltop botanical gardens at Jardim de São Martinho is a 5-minute drive away.
Funchal is a “good base for all the island’s attractions”, says The Daily Telegraph. We recommend visiting the Mercado dos Lavradores, a historic fruit and flower market bursting with exotic aromas, or taking a cable-car ride to the neighbourhood of Monte for incredible views of the city. From there, you can ride a traditional wicker toboggan back down the winding streets towards Funchal.
