Welcome to your island getaway, the alluring green one. Every Octant is a tribute to its location. They are places where you will find care and attention, peace and freedom, with no time constraints. As well as rare emotion, in-depth knowledge, and unique encounters and experiences that you will remember forever. Here, in the Furnas Valley, the island’s ancient volcano is still bubbling hot. Here, at the place with the highest concentration of hot springs in Europe, the contemporary architecture blends harmoniously with the unique natural beauty arising from the quenturas beneath the surface. With hotel having dynamic thermal pools open round the clock; both indoors and outdoors, we give pride of place to well-being and a deep reconnection with nature. The 10 spa treatment rooms will be the ideal complement, especially after visiting the surrounding routes and trails. It's just that while the views and local experiences will recharge your batteries, our treatments are the pinnacle of relaxation on this well-deserved vacation — and you do deserve it, don't you? To ensure your unrivalled comfort, without ever having to leave your seat, the À TERRA Restaurant will show you the very best of our local produce, cooked in a wood-fired oven, in the Josper or naturally, in ovens dug out over the hot springs. From the best locally produced meats, to a selection of fish from the fish market and the freshest greens, travel through the original traditions of the Azores, with a true flavour of the island: if you savour it slowly, for a long-lasting memory. This is what it means to be free. It is having the time for what matters, turning it into good memories, and returning to them over and over again.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Octant Hotels Furnas is often commended for its cleanliness and strategic location, making it a prime spot for exploring the island's attractions. While the hotel's thermal pools and spa, along with the exceptional service provided by the staff, receive high marks, some guests feel the rooms and amenities fall short, citing a need for maintenance and upgrades. Despite the modern atmosphere and decor, opinions are mixed regarding the value, as several guests consider the pricing steep for the experience offered.

We had a very wonderful stay at Octant-Furnas. It is a lovely hotel. The spa facilities are great, including the hot pools and sauna. We had a reflexology session and a facial which were terrific. (Make reservations, even in non-peak season.) The staff are very welcoming, gracious, helpful and informative. Our room was comfortable. The breakfast buffet is FABULOUS - so many delicious and varied options.

We loved our stay at Octant Furnas! The thermal pools were an amazing respite after long days of adventuring and exploring in the Furnas Valley! We especially adored Elizabeth, who guided us to the best restaurants and sites to see in the area!

Amazing spot not to be missed. The spa alone is worth the visit. Great location from which to explore the east side of the island. Easy walking to spots in Furnas. Great food and amenities. Plenty of parking. Would 10/10 recommend and worth the very reasonable price.

Although the Name Has Changed From Furnas Boutique To Octant- Many of the wonderful elements have remained. We were happy to see some familiar faces, Elizabeth and Several of the folks in the spa! The breakfast buffet continues to be quite perfect! Spa treatments are great and the rooms remain basically the same. Only off putting issue was at checkout after 4 night we were asked 3 times to add gratuity to our Amex payment! We however were asked by spa employees to tip in cash ( which we did) as they handed an envelope) bar employees as well and we left cash tips in room daily and at breakfast! This was extremely off putting and a huge turn off! We are great tippers and to be questioned 3 times at the front desk was unnecessary!

Overall, I did enjoy my stay here and I would return. The staff was exceptional and really bent over backwards with a smile to ensure you were happy. The spa was lovely and I enjoyed having private hot springs as part of the hotel experience. The hot springs are 24 hours, so that can’t be beat. I also appreciated they let you do two nights (other places wanted three night minimums) so I could split my time on the island. The breakfast was a nice spread. They actually provided champagne with the drinks, which is more generous than other hotels. I did a dinner with them too that was good. The rooms themselves were modern and clean. My negatives were that it’s off a busy- ish road and, while I grabbed one of the last rooms, I didn’t appreciate that there would be rooms looking into a parking lot in what I was expecting to be a very serene/remote spot. I’d pay extra for a better view/side when booking. A couple notes: I was surprised that this small town is not very pedestrian friendly. There are very narrow sidewalks and a couple roads where drivers are whizzing by. The town needs more crosswalks and speed bumps. You’re better off with a car here. I was also told that if you tip on the receipt, the money goes to the hotel, which I’m hoping they disseminate, but not directly to the person helping you. I’d have some cash for tips … That said, no one ever appeared like they expected tips.

Amazing hotel in the heart of Furnas! What an experience staying here as the staff treats you like family from the minute you walk in. For example - The manager, Manuel went out of his way to drive us to dinner to help us out when we were in a time crunch & that is just one of example of many! Concierge was extremely helpful during on our stay and helped with whatever request we had whether it was getting a reservation or getting taxis etc. the on-site restaurant A Terra has incredible food and staff as well (Maura was a highlight for serving us at multiple dinners, so friendly and nice). The vibe & decor was so cool in there as they had live music a couple nights. Gourmet breakfast was included as well. Location is amazing with a cute park right next door and the town a quick 5 minute walk. Secluded as you feel like you are in a utopia Amenity wise - get ready to eat and drink In your robes as there everything you can think of - mini bar, Turn down service at night, spa with steam and sauna, gym. outdoor pools, hot tub and cold plunge-Esque tub next to the naturally heated indoor pool. Great lobby bar with a lot of fun board games to keep you entertained. Can’t recommend this hotel enough as it was truly a 5-star experience and would return in a heart beat! Everything you can ever want in a hotel and if for some reason you think they are missing something just ask and they will get it!

Everything about this hotel is amazing, especially the very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast and dinner, very tasty food. Spa facilities are great also, warm inside pool fed by the spring waters with lots of jets. Sauna, steam room and locanium we're all very nice. Rooms were large, lots of nice amenities and the attention to being eco friendly is very nice. Furnas is a great town and there is so much to do nearby.

I had a perfect stay at Octant Furnas. The location is amazing, wish I had stayed there my whole trip since the entire island is totally accessible from there. It was hard to leave to stay in Ponta Delgada (though I love Octant Hotel there), Furnas is the way to go! Staff was amazing and the room and grounds were beautiful. After reading a mediocre review I was worried that I may be disappointed but that was not at all the case. This is a great travel venue!

The property overall takes the design cues from the nature that surrounds it which makes it feel of-place. The room has nice and thoughtful decor. The pool areas are nice but can get crowded late afternoon or early evening as people check in and go straight to the pool. The pool water is filtered hot spring water so it doesn’t smell. The indoor pool is a comfortable temperature, the outdoor pool isn’t heating and is a refreshingly cool temperature for a hot day. The bed was comfortable. The place is quiet, there is a little little road noise but it’s not a big deal. The breakfast was great, there was a large selection (too many to list) and all the food was good quality and taste. There is tea available in the lobby. There were bikes available to rent by the day of half day. The shower in our room overflowed onto the floor each shower; we told the front desk but they either didn’t do anything or couldn’t do anything about it (not sure which) but they just gave us more floor towels.
