Design hotel - Portugal



  • Exclusive luxury, perfect service and design elements reminiscent of an old sugar factory

  • Ideal starting point to explore the diverse flora and fauna of Madeira

  • Traditional dishes prepared using local ingredients with a contemporary twist

  • High-quality equipped rooms and suites with many additional services

In the southwest of the Portuguese island of Madeira, near the small town of Calheta, the design hotel Saccharum, part of the Savoy Group, opened in 2015. In the region around the hotel, sugar production was one of the most important economic sectors. This theme is reflected not only in the name, but also in the design and interior of the Saccharum. Thanks to its excellent location, the hotel is an ideal starting point to explore the fascinating nature as well as the cultural treasures of the island. Another highlight of the hotel is the large spa and wellness area, where no wishes remain unfulfilled.

Framed by the volcanic beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains in the hinterland of the island, Saccharum offers a perfect location for exploring the island. Not far from the marina and the small town of Calheta are the most beautiful beaches of the region. There used to be a sugar factory on the exact spot where the hotel stands today. Saccharum's design and decoration borrow from this theme, and design elements such as metal pipes create a harmonious and coherent overall look.

Also known as Flower Island, Madeira is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers. The hiking trails around the famous levadas are only a few kilometers away. In addition, you can reach the old town and the center of Funchal in about 35 minutes by car.

Funchal airport is about 50 kilometers away.

Saccharum's reminds us of the old sugar factory that once stood on the very spot where the hotel is now located. This theme is also reflected in other areas of the hotel. Parts of the lobby even look like a museum, and information about the history of the region is available throughout the hotel.

A special highlight is the eighth-floor rooftop terrace, where you can enjoy international grilled specialties and sunset cocktails.

A playroom is available for children big and small, and a babysitting service is available upon request and for a fee.

The Saccharum offers a total of 194 rooms and 49 suites, 6 of which are deluxe suites. The design also remains focused on the theme of the hotel: Expect modern lines combined with high-quality, natural materials. Guests in the suites will enjoy special complimentary additional services.
