Simply The Vine Design: Portugal’s Coolest New Hotel is in Madeira

The Vine Hotel, in Funchal, Madeira

This month’s Wallpaper* magazine highlights the design of THE VINE, Madeira’s newest hotel. GoLisbon had already recommended it as a top choice to stay on a visit to that Portuguese island during the holiday season soon after it opened, and this month it really seems to have caught the attention of the international media. In addition to Wallpaper*, the hotel was also featured in The Independent, in an article about how Madeira (and especially its capital city Funchal) is attempting to attract younger travelers with hip hotels and chic eateries. You can read that entire article here, and if you’re interested in staying at the hotel, you can book it here.

You’ll find that its name comes from the island’s wine tradition, but that it sounds like a description of the cutting-edge décor and service. You’ll have the option of limousine service, a welcome massage, an exclusive Jacuzzi and luxurious spa, or a swim in the heated rooftop pool before a gourmet meal at the restaurant with panoramic views serving food by a 3-Michelin star chef. You can have something else to eat later at the lounge, which also serves drinks to the young crowds that show up knowing that this place puts the fun in Funchal.
