The Sentido Galomar is an adult-friendly hotel set in an exquisite location, built into the cliffs of Caniço. It offers an enviable position and breath-taking sea-views with a focus towards sustainability. Enjoy days lounging by the outdoor salt water pool or heading down to the bathing platform (not adult-only) where you have direct access to the sea, relax and enjoy the sound of waves lapping against the rocks – is there anything more perfect?
Fantastic pool and spa facilities
Having undergone a recent renovation the Galomar has been transformed into a modern yet comfortable hotel that’s warm and welcoming. You’ll find a spa onsite where you can enjoy treatments and massages (payable locally), perfect for soothing tired legs after exploring the Levadas of Madeira. There’s an outdoor pool (salt water) that sits on the cliff-top looking out towards the Atlantic Ocean and is a great spot to watch the sunset. There’s also the unique addition of a seawater pool at the bottom of the cliffs at Lido Galomar bathing platform with direct access to the sea.
Take a dive in the ocean
Its not often that a hotel resort is situated in an underwater nature reserve and has a diving school attached to it (bookable and payable locally) and believe us when we say you'll want to dive right into these beautiful waters. These waters are some of most protected in Portugal and are therefore full of marine life.
Located next to an underwater nature reserve, this eco certified hotel recognises the importance of protecting biodiversity, as well as empowering local communities. It generates its own energy via solar panels and displays live energy usage figures for guests in every room.
Its aims include reducing water and chemical use, reducing food waste, planting island endemic species and informing guests about how to respect the local environment. It also supports local charities, including donating 50 meals a week to a homeless support centre.
