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.
How to Get There
Staying with family on the island and spent a night here for our anniversary! So clean, quiet and peaceful. The pools were very relaxing, and the town of furnas is lovely to walk around and explore. Highly recommend this hotel!
Furnas Boutique is a very relaxing hotel with a wonderful spa in the back. Surrounded by hot springs and within walking distance of a beautiful park, this hotel is a very relaxing place to stay. While its location is not central, San Miguel Island is small enough that it is not a big deal, and it is very different from a typical hotel on a beach. The staff is very attentive and friendly. Mr. Goes, the manager, is a very reasonable and thoughtful man who leads an excellent staff. The rooms are a bit small, but the beds are comfortable and the hotel is compact enough that you don’t have to walk great distances to get to the restaurant or the spa. The restaurant has burgers, pizza, steak, and fish for dinner, and a buffet breakfast. It has both inside and outside seating, and is casual. A great relaxing and casual hotel, I highly recommend Furnas Boutique Hotel.
Overall I liked the hotel. My favorites were the hotel's hot spring pools and the restaurant. The food and atmosphere in the restaurant are great! The room was a bit below my expectations I expected it to be a bit nicer, in pictures it looked better but generally it wasn't bad. I was also bummed that we did not get a nice view so if you care about that its worth requesting a room with a view on a higher floor we were in the ground level floor.
The hotel is great for groups of friends, families and couples!
