This hotel just impressed me! So peaceful, so classy, so well designed.
I spent a week in The Vine and the whole time I had feld like in a different world. The services, restaurant or spa were excellent as I expected but as I am a designer the strongest experience for me was the stunning design of this place. After I visited this hotel I understand why its designer was awarded for “Best Hotel Interior Design” at the European Property Award 2009. It has a great concept and style. I especially love the lighting design there – the underlighted bed or huge picture of vine above the bed created beautiful ambience in the room. The shower with a waterfall efect and a floor made from the little stones typical for Madeira (spot the pavements in Funchal) is great as well. You can feel the touch of nature in many details inside a modern building and that's the reason why I find it really special.
The bed was very comfortable and the bed-clothes so soft, I did't want to leave the bed every single morning...
The top of my visit - New Year's Eve party was one of the most memorable moments of my life. Delicious dinner with life music, fancy dresses, friends and...the best firework I have ever seen!! As we celebrated also on the roof terrase with the pool (and with a view over the city) we could see about 15 synchronized fireworks and few next even bigger ones all around... fantastic!
I think I will come back to Funchal in the summer and stay in The Vine again...
