2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Today, the Azores Islands can relish in the grand re-opening of their most famous hotel, newly renovated. Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens to the public after extensive renovations reclassified as a 4-star property, positioning itself as one of the top hotels in Portugal. Located in Furnas Valley, on S. Miguel Island, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is nestled in one of the World's best "Green Retreats," as deemed by Conde Nast Traveler - the 18th century Terra Nostra Garden exudes a breathtaking atmosphere of exoticism and mysticism in perfect harmony with nature. Opened since 1935, a time when the Azores Islands entered the international travel circuit for those seeking unique experiences, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel reopens with the same charming aura and exclusivity of the past, bringing you 86 rooms split between two buildings, maintaining its architectural history: the Art Deco Wing, built in the 1930's and the Garden Wing, added in the 1990's. The hotel's interior design concept stems from the Art Deco style, and introduces contemporary elements and materials, creating comfort and exclusivity perfectly integrated with the lush Terra Nostra Garden. The new Wellness areas are available and improved upon, making this hotel the perfect spotyou're your special events, taking into consideration the tremendous potential of Furnas Valley with theme-oriented activities, as a retreat getaway and so much more. In addition to the renovation, Terra Nostra Garden Hotel highlights Azorean products, focuses on the Furnas Cozido experience (a sustainable meal fully cooked underground with the heat of the volcanic hot springs) and the importance of protecting Furnas's unique environmental resources. The new Terra Nostra Restaurant offers a vast array of wine choices and delectable menu, up to par with the expectations of any wine connoisseur or avid foodie, who will appreciate the impeccable service and ambiance this restaurant has always had. Come stay with us at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel and you will have an unforgettable wellness experience, leaving you with memories to last a lifetime.

The Terra Nostra Garden hotel was very nice in itself. We were upgraded to garden view room and had a balcony with a view of the gardens. The service was excellent (we arrived in the rain and of the staff came out to greet us with umbrellas). The town didn’t offer any obviously appealing restaurants so we ate one night in the hotel restaurant (which was very formal in terms of dishes available, and service) and the bar (which was more relaxed) - both very tasty, as was breakfast. However, what made the hotel really special was that you not only get free access to the Terra Nostra gardens (which are incredible) but you can access the gardens and hot pools outside of the public hours of 10-4:30pm – the almost-empty gardens in the morning and the evening are magical.

The staff was wonderful! Very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was spotless. The gardens were magnificent. Loved the mineral hot springs and the 3 very large jacuzzis. The food was spectacular and the daily breakfast was delicious. Different food every morning. Just can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this hotel

Not the first time and surely not the last. As soon as we enter TN's doors, something magical happens. The quality of the service, the dreamy surroundings, the extremely comfortable rooms, and the perks of having a botanical garden all to yourself are some of the many factors why you should stay here. But, if you add to this the experience of being able to relax in its huge thermal water swimming pool (plus 2 natural jacuzzis), at any given time of the day and night, makes it quite unforgetable! So, if you have the chance to stay here for a few days, please do so!
