A new Savoy Palace resort is set to open in Funchal, on the Portuguese island of Madeira, to include a destination spa with 11 treatment rooms.

The 16-story hotel will include 352 bedrooms and a design that blends bold, modern and historical styles.

The 3,000sq m spa has been inspired by the island’s Laurissilva Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest surviving laurel forest in the world. In addition to the 11 treatment rooms, it will include a sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool, ice fountain, sensory showers, halotherapy room, relaxation room, champagne and nails bar, beauty salon and heated indoor pool.

Treatments will be from Sodashi, Aromatherapy Associates, Margaret Dabbs, Linda Meredith, and for men, Gentlemen’s Tonic and Vitaman.

The hotel itself is a bold, curved structure designed by RH+ and Nini Andrade Silva, a Portuguese interior designers who is also from Madeira herself, whose work includes the new W São Paulo and Nini Design Centre Funchal.

The design is influenced by the Belle Epoque period, which is in harmony with the island’s rich resources, and is a dynamic blend of natural and cultural heritage.

The aesthetic brings together a number of elements: the surrounding volcanic landscape, the unique man-made environment with ancient levadas (irrigation channels) and tunnels, the mastery of Madeiran embroidery, the centuries-old art of wickerwork, and the expertise involved in the production of Madeira wine.

The resort’s common areas are bold with the emphasis on colour, sinuous curves suggesting plant forms, animals and women, as well as ornaments based on Art Nouveau.
