Savoy Signature just opened a boutique hotel in Madeira

The Reserve, an exclusive luxury hotel concept set within the renowned Savoy Palace in Madeira, Portugal. Opening its doors in December, The Reserve will redefine the meaning of luxury, delivering an unmatched experience where guests are immersed in a world of dedicated focus and distinctive hospitality. 

“The Reserve is the epitome of refinement and personalized service,” said Ricardo Madias-Farinha, chief commercial officer of Savoy Signature. “We have meticulously crafted every aspect of the experience to ensure our guests enjoy an unforgettable journey that exceeds their expectations. The Reserve is a sanctuary where attention to detail and individual desires are paramount, and we are excited to start welcoming our guests to this unparalleled haven of indulgence.” 

Brimming with nature, culture and history, Madeira is a gorgeous island located in the North Atlantic Ocean, closer to Africa than mainland Portugal. As a result of its unique geographical location, the destination enjoys sunnier, warmer temperatures.

Typically, most Canadians combine a visit to Madeira with a longer stay in popular parts of Portugal or additional destinations in Europe, as there are non-stop connections from more than 50 European gateways.

At The Reserve, every detail is carefully curated to create a truly exceptional stay. From the moment their booking is confirmed at this premier hideaway, they are connected with their own GEPA (The Reserve’s acronym for Guest Experience Personal Assistant), via Email and WhatsApp, which tailors and prepares the stay to the guests’ specific requests and requirements prior to arrival.


About The Reserve

To ensure a seamless visit, guests staying at The Reserve and Savoy Palace can enjoy the signature private car service (for an extra fee) upon their arrival and departure at Madeira International Airport, allowing for a smooth and hassle-free transition and being the perfect addition to the Meet & Greet service at the airport, which is complimentary to all guests at The Reserve on both arrival and departure.

Once guests arrive at the hotel, a dedicated private elevator will take them from the street-level lobby to the 16th floor of the Savoy Palace building where guests will find the Jacarandá Lounge & Club – the heart of The Reserve. Here guests will find a stunning rooftop pool, offering a panoramic view of Funchal, exclusive to The Reserve guests, which further enhances the already VIP experience. 

A suite escape

The Reserve presents an array of 40 elegantly appointed rooms designed to cater to various preferences.

The spacious pool suites offer a private sanctuary, with a personal terrace and very own plunge pool; while the deluxe rooms provide a cozy retreat with serene sea views of the breathtaking Funchal Bay.

Every suite is thoughtfully furnished with lavish bedding and contemporary amenities, assuring the highest degree of comfort and relaxation within an ambiance of unmatched privacy and luxury. The decor in the rooms consists of four different color palettes inspired by the colors and flora of the beautiful island of Madeira.
