The Vine Hotel in Madeira, Portugal

Generous space and pared-down sophistication are the trademarks of this 5 star property, which takes its name and inspiration from the island’s world-famous Madeira wine. With its unique location in the South of Madeira, in the heart of the historic centre of Funchal and close to the cathedral Sé, The Vine is an ideal starting point for a city tour or an island sightseeing trip.

The Design

Upon entering the hotel, guests will be captured by the all-encompassing design theme of the hotel: The Madeira wine. This is reflected in every little detail of the hotel – starting at Terra lounge featuring woods taken from vineyards, over to the Vinotherapy Spa with treatments based on the philosophy of the Vinotherapy and the gourmet restaurant UVA, serving delicious French fusion cuisine and excellent wines from Madeira. Contemporary elegant design with a warm touch and comfort designed for guest needs characterize The Vine. Grey, green, purple and brown are the dominating colours of the hotel, representing the four different seasons and the maturation of a grape throughout the year. The interior design reflects the vision of award-winning Portuguese designer Nini Andrade Silva, the architecture is led by Ricardo Bofill. Each floor is designed in a different colour: The 2nd floor is green for spring, the 3rd floor is purple for summer, the 4th floor is grey for winter and the 5th floor is held in brown colours, representing autumn. Next to the lift on each floor is an illuminated cube with a seating area which resembles vineyards, giving The Vine a simplicity which also characterises the hotel.
