Quinta do Lorde

Sitio da Piedade, Caniçal, Madeira, 9200-044, Portugal

The island's easternmost vacation accommodations can be found on the Ponta de São Lourenço peninsula, about 5 km (3 miles) from Caniçal. This massive resort complex—which includes not only a hotel, but apartments and a marina—feels a little South Floridian in its streamlined look and design. The hotel itself is made of five individual buildings, based around plazas, leisure areas, pools, and a wellness center with indulgent health and beauty treatments. Lounge around at one of the hotel's three outdoor swimming pools, including a saltwater pool with direct sea access, or dine in any of six restaurants—the elegant Lord's Club is a standout. Owned by the Congregation of the Regular Canons of the Holy Cross prior to its transformation, it even has a chapel. Couples can book special romance packages including sparkling wine and chocolates, and even a private dinner in the resort's own lighthouse.
