Part of the Savoy Resorts group, the luxurious 5-star Saccharum has been designed with the natural beauty of Madeira in mind. Situated in a quiet and serene corner of the island, close to the beautiful Marina de Calheta and overlooking the sea, the hotel’s location is truly unbeatable.
All 243 rooms at the Saccharum feature marble bathroom, walk-in shower, and mini bar, and each has its own private balcony with views of the mountains, or across the Atlantic Ocean. Perfect for a luxurious experience, the Saccharum Spa includes four treatment and massage rooms, with services such as sauna, Turkish bath, and ice fountain, while the gymnasium is great for staying fit and active. Three outdoor swimming pools and one indoor pool mean there’s always somewhere nearby to take a dip. For little guests there’s the ‘Children’s Playroom’, a dedicated space for fun and adventure. Choose from five bars (try the Fly Lounge for a spectacular Portugal sunset) and two restaurants. The Alambique restaurant serves up a la carte cuisine, while Engenho is a more informal buffet style.
At the Saccharum, you’re just moments away from one of the only sand beaches in Madeira: Praia de Calheta. You can also enjoy quiet relaxation, small boutique shopping, and, of course, great local wine in the immediate Calheta area. If you fancy exploring further, take a walk up the hill to Estreito da Calheta, a small village dominated by its parish church. You could also hire a car and head to Ribeira Brava, a truly up-and-coming destination at the foot of the Campanario Hills.
