I don’t can’t begin to describe this amazing place - book here now! The owners and the staff treat you like friends, they genuinely care for you and your experience in the Azores. The daily breakfast was a lovely treat, and time in the giant back garden was a highlight daily. Would highly recommend to solo travelers, couples or families that are looking for a personal and memorable base for their adventures.

Thank you Minuvida, Rimi, Joao and your amazing staff for giving us such a wonderful visit to São Miguel. The grounds and accommodation are spectacular. It was such a treat to enjoy the locally and home sourced and prepared breakfast and snacks. Your onsite yoga studio is a bonus with such a high quality holistic yoga class offered by Rimi. Thanks for helping us out with finding fabulous food so close by and great tips on seeing some of São Miguel’s most beautiful spots. I cannot wait to share Minuvida with more of my family and enjoy your famous tasting menu dinner, the lovely swimming pool and some guided hikes. Your attention to every detail made our visit unforgettable and so very relaxing. It’s great to be part of the Minuvida family.

I originally signed up for 2 nights at Minuvida, and was so delighted with EVERYTHING that I stayed 4 more - until the end of my vacation. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds full of birds and trees, flowers and fruit. The dogs and cats were always up for a friendly greeting or a romp, and Rimi's yoga classes were grounding and healing. I went for a walk each morning through the small roads around Minuvida, then enjoyed a fabulous breakfast, and the house-made herbal tea. Joao and Rimi are lovely, and both of their managers (Marina and Luis) were extremely helpful in planning activities each day - with GREAT recommendations! I can't wait to go back. The week in Sao Miguel was just what I needed.

This place is absolutely charming and the perfect place to relax in body and mind. The gardens bring you in touch with the physical world, with the fruit trees and birds all around, lavender scented water and bananas picked from the grounds. We especially enjoyed sitting by the pool with the occasional company of the resident dogs or cats. With such care in hospitality, Minuvida inspires an awesome gratitude for the Azores. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Quinta Minuvida, on Sao Miguel Island in the Azores is truly a breath of fresh air. The hosts embody the Azorean hospitality as they welcome us into their home and garden. The food is delicious and local. The accommodations are comfortable and clean and the guided hikes traverse some of the most stunning views on this planet. Only a 5 hour direct flight from the east coast of North America and you arrive on an island that will embrace you in it's natural beauty, it's welcoming people and the comfortable, nurturing home of Rimi and Joao. Oh yes, let's not forget the furry friends. The 2 dogs help to remind us that hikes and naps go very well together. The cats remind us that there's no hiking required to have a nap.
