Madeira’s Grande dame, Belmond Reid’s Palace, recently unveiled the renovations of three main areas of the hotel.
The renovation, that took place during last year was led by London based Wimberly Interiors, who was also responsible for the recent restoration of three exceptional suites at the iconic Belmond Venice Simplon-Orient- Express.

THE SENSE OF DISCOVERY

The design concept takes reference to the unique building and location of Belmond Reid’s Palace, known as a unique sanctuary in Madeira Island for over 126 years. Throughout history, the hotel has been an icon of glamour for guests, supporting the traveller’s desire for exploration and discovery of the alluring wonders of the island. This timeless sense of glamour and history inspired the new design concept applied to three main areas of Belmond Reid’s Palace: the reception of the hotel, including the grand entrance and lobby area, the previous breakfast restaurant and the Pool Terrace restaurant.

AN AUTHENTIC ARRIVAL EXPERIENCE

The newly designed lobby and reception area, with its detailed high ceilings, crystal chandelier and epic ocean views, offers a new grand sense of arrival, already vivid before entering the lobby, where the framed views and the strong axis of the architecture creates a new centralised welcome experience.
From the moment guests enter the hotel they are transported into another world and introduced to a botanical experience where potted palms, lemon trees and local flowers set the tone. The gleaming marble floors and the historic black and white prints lead the gaze to the view of the stylish and iconic tea terrace.

MADERIAN FLAVOURS IN A BREATHTAKING LOCATION

The Pool Terrace once used only for lunch is now open through the day, giving guests the opportunity to have an inspiring start of the day enjoying fresh air and tempting ocean vistas.

The most authentic Madeiran flavours are showcased in a delicious buffet featuring the best local produce, from local fruit at breakfast to the freshest seafood from the Atlantic Ocean at lunch.
The interior concept celebrates the clean forms of the architecture and vaulted ceilings, layered with classic furniture and paired with local tableware and wicker ornaments.

A NEW MULTIFUNCTIONAL PLACE

Nestled between sub-tropical gardens and the endless Ocean, Belmond Reid’s Palace has enchanted guests for more than a century. Loyal guests include royalty, prime ministers, film icons and notable authors, drawn to the hotel and spa for rest and relaxation, as well as a base from which to explore the surroundings through hiking, horse-riding or water sports.
