In a press statement, the Savoy Hotel and Resort Group have announced that the new 5-star Savoy Palace Hotel will officially open in June this year.
The new hotel comprises some 309 rooms, 43 suites plus a presidential suite, five swimming pools including rooftop infinity pools, restaurants and bars. Both Madeira and nature have been the inspiration for the hotel’s exterior and interior. The hotels exterior has been designed to reflect the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, while Madeiran interior designer, Nini Andrade de Silva’s, has picked out specific details of Madeira’s cultural heritage, such as the Laurissilva forest themed spa and embroidery themed wood panels in the bedrooms as part of the interior design.
With breath-taking ocean views, the new hotel aims to be both a European and regional leader in luxury hotels and hopes to attract US, Brazilian and Russian tourists to strengthen Madeira as a leading island resort.
