Sul Villas & Spa

Ilha de São Miguel

Superb views over

Santa Cruz Bay

Sul Villas & Spa proves that you can find boutique hospitality on the Portuguese islands as well as on the mainland. Set on the island of São Miguel, the hotel’s clifftop location is hard to beat. The views to the sea with its indigo colours will mesmerize you during the day and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep at night.

The twelve suites all have private terraces and some of the larger suites have private plunge pools or jacuzzis. You can also enjoy all the activities the Azorean destiny provides. There is a vast list of experiences you can enjoy during your stay here and the staff is more than willing to help you.

For those of you new to the Azores, this group of islands is often referred to as Europe's “Best Kept Secret”. Slowly but surely more boutique hotels have popped up and travelers enjoy the year-round appeal. Sul Villas & Spa is located on São Miguel Island, which is a green jewel in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You can find everything on the island, from hot springs to dormant volcanoes, green landscapes and exotic plants and amazingly clean waters. We would love to recommend Travel Gem readers who like a bit of adventure and who are looking for a new European destination to add to their wish list!
