If Madeira is truly the Garden of Eden then the Quinta Splendida Botanical Wellness and Botanical garden hotel and grounds must be at its heart. No wonder everyone in this relaxing away-from-it-all flower-laden paradise is so friendly. The stunning prize-winning subtropical gardens overflow with 650 varieties of rare flower and plants, a delight to those with an interest in gardens, photography or painting.
Bordering the small town of Canico, the Quinta Splendida commands magnificent views of the ocean far below. At its centre is a restored 18th century manor with an elegant interior and La Perla, a gourmet restaurant
The cuisine is first class, with many ingredients organically grown in the vegetable and herb gardens. A buffet breakfast is presented in the bistro-style Galeria. The cottage-like guest rooms are hidden in the lush foliage of the fabulous gardens. A lovely outdoor pool appears to merge with the blue of the ocean - the effect is quite surreal and a new spa is set to indulge guests even more.
