A new boutique hotel on the stunning Azores island of São Miguel, with breakfast
There are fewer places more stunning than Azores, the archipelago of nine pristine volcanic islands set in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Portugal. Set on the largest island, São Miguel, the brand-new Furnas Boutique Hotel ticks all the boxes for nature-lovers and sporty types, with opportunities to canoe, whale-watch, dive, fish, bike and even swim with dolphins.
Open since March 2015, this boutique hideaway makes the most of its spectacular setting with panoramic views and high-design interiors. Given its wellness heritage, the spa is the hotel's pièce de résistance. Alongside outdoor and indoor thermal pools, it also has a gym, sauna, hammam, whirlpool and Vichy shower.
