A delightful Art Nouveau design boutique hotel with splendid location, providing truly memorable escape year-round.
This charming villa was successfully converted into a 21-bedroom boutique hotel in 1999, located in the heart of the countryside, right next to the Santo da Serra golf course, one of the best on the island. With close proximity to the airport, and the nearby market town Santo da Serra where you can enjoy a lively market on Sundays, makes the hotel ideal for a short break or as part of a multi-centre holiday. From the hotel, you can enjoy magnificent sea views thanks to its elevated stunning position.
The villa was originally designed with Art Nouveau style and most of the original features form its residential area is well kept and maintained. The delightful façade, original wooden floors and the charm of the house is still alive and merged well with the extended section where the Spa Indoor pool and the Standard rooms are located.
The former dining room of the Santo da Serra Tea House is home to the hotel’s Avó Micas Restaurant. Here guests enjoy breakfast service with home-made specialities as well as A La Carte dinners prepared with fresh ingredients, especially fish from the Atlantic, according to traditional recipes. The siting room with traditional Madeiran furniture and beautiful fireplace is a perfect location for your afternoon tea. Served with homemade scones and jams, the afternoon tea is something not to be missed to appreciate the flavours and the old-time ambiance.
The indoor heated pool and the Spa area offers a tranquil atmosphere and ideal place to relax and rejuvenate. The natural light, good facilities and direct access to the garden makes this part of the hotel a little paradise especially on colder days.
Guests at the PortoBay Serra Golf can make use of all the public areas of the resort Vila Porto Mare, in Funchal.
