Vila Porto Mare


13,400 m2 devoted to nature...

The Vila Porto Mare resort makes much of the space given over to nature, from the green of the trees to the colours of the flowers, the smell of aromatic plants...

Since the resort opened, this space has become a wonderful garden with over 500 species, subspecies and plants, with some of these plants originating from as far away as Australia, New Zealand and the African continent.

Different fruit trees can also be found where the forms, smells and flavours of their fruits take us to other latitudes, examples are the banana, sugar apple, avocado, starfruit among many others...

The majority of plants grow extraordinarily thanks to the subtropical climate, the fertility of the soil and the constant care and attention from our gardening team. Alongside the flowers and the trees are various endemic plants in the gardens such as the Madeira Geranium, dragon-tree, or the Pride of Madeira, all of them duly identified by origin, family, region and common name. Make the most of discovering a new corner with aromatic and medicinal herbs as well as the “orchidea Garden”, an area dedicated to the most varied species of these marvellous flowers.

Join a weekly visit organised by the hotel and discover some more secrets kept in the many corners of our garden.

See the garden's video here.

PBL Fachada 9

The award distinguishes hotels, attractions and restaurants that frequently receive excellent evaluations for travellers on TripAdvisor. This week, the portal disclosed the winners of the Certificate of Excellence 2015 and from the list are eleven hotel properties of the PortoBay Group, including the most recent hotel in Lisbon, the PortoBay Liberdade, which received its first distinction.
The restaurants Il Gallo D’ Oro (1 Michelin star), Il Basílico, Med and Alfama, all on Madeira and the Trebbiano Restaurant (São Paulo), which are among the PortoBay Group's hotel properties, were also honoured.
To mark the five years of existence of this award, Tripadvisor created a new category, the “Hall of Fame”, which recognises the establishments that received this distinction consecutively since its first edition. This award went to the Porto Santa Maria, Eden Mar and The Cliff Bay, in Madeira, PortoBay Falésia, in the Algarve, and PortoBay Búzios, in Brazil.

PortoBay guests take part in the Madeira Carnival
PB Trupecarnaval 14 Baixa

On Saturday (14 February), for the 4th year in a row, the guests of PortoBay Hotels & Resorts took part in the Great Allegorical Parade of the Madeira Carnival. The theme was “The Magic of Light”.

The carnival experience began on the day before the parade, with a costume fitting, choreography dress-rehearsal and get-together with the various participants. A unique experience, which every year has some repeat participants. One example of this is the couple Ann Davidson and Alex Carson. They took part in the initiative the year it was launched, and have returned for the two subsequent editions. “The atmosphere was electric, with the watching crowd applauding and cheering us all along the parade route”, says the couple on the PortoBay Facebook page.

This event is on the calendar ofPortoBay Events, which aims to maximise the experience of the guests when staying in the group's hotels, making them feel part of the traditions of the destination.

Madeira Island

dynamic, creative and multifaceted destination...

Situated in the Atlantic Ocean and with a mild climate, Madeira Island is one of the oldest and most prestigious tourist destinations in Europe. With an extensive natural reserve, the most famous is the prehistoric and exuberant Laurissilva (laurel) forest, which has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the World Natural Heritage.

Nature, the temperate climate, the unique waterfalls, the local traditions, the culture, the cuisine, water and mountain sports, immense gardens and flowers, popular festivals, embroidery and Madeira wine, and the cosmopolitan city of Funchal make Madeira a multi-faceted destination.
