The Quinta Splendida is a wonderfully-restored 19th century mansion in a tranquil oasis of 30,000m² of breath-taking botanical gardens. It’s only a short distance from the small town of Caniço but with everything you need onsite, you’ll want to stay and enjoy this botanical paradise.
Beautiful botanic gardens
Is there anything more serene than an afternoon stroll in the Madeiran sun surrounded by beautiful flowers, vibrant colours and the sweet scent of tropical flora? We don’t think so and that’s why we love the Quinta Splendida. Its extensive and truly unique gardens have been a passion project for the owner for over 30 years and are classed as Botanical Gardens; a title bestowed by the Madeiran Government in recognition of the hard work and dedication gone into them. Try to spot the different species of plants; there are over a thousand varieties to see in this tropical paradise.
Delicious dining experiences
The hotel offers a great variety of restaurants and bars on-site. We love to head to the Siddhartha bar on sunny days and grab a drink and a bite to eat next to the outdoor swimming pool, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy the sea views. In the evening, head to the Globe bar and choose from its extensive cocktail menu – there's live music to enjoy three times a week and more in summer. To dine, you’ll find a Thai restaurant with a variety of Asian flavours on offer as well as the Galeria restaurant which has a range of Mediterranean inspired dishes.
Relax in one of the largest Spas on the island
Treat tired legs after a day of walking the Madeiran trails and indulge in a little TLC by heading to the hotel spa and wellness centre (available at a daily supplement for some room types). You can enjoy a variety of treatments and massages (bookable and payable locally) or take a dip in the indoor pool. There is also a whirlpool, relaxation area and our recommendation - head for the outdoor terrace and soak up those magnificent sea views.
