Quick trip to the Azores for a brief respite from the Nebraska cold and ice. Set in a garden with access to the natural hot springs pools. Enjoyed the soaks. I suspect the gardens are better during high season but enjoyable now nonetheless. High level wait staff service during included breakfast as well as a dinner we enjoyed. Personally I...

This hotel is spotless and with well appointed rooms. Make sure you walk the gardens and soak in the hot volcanic pools. Very accommodating staff. Try the spa and the indoor pool. The bar is huge with a great staff and drink menu.

We just loved to stay at the Terra Notra Garden Hotel. Our stay there felt like paradise: the beautiful modernist / Art Deco design of the hotel with the details from the thirties combined with modern comfort, the wonderful unique and old Botanical Garden, the large outdoor pool with warm mineral water, the extremely kind and accomodating staff, the stylish...

What a respite for the weary traveler! The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are reasonably sized and for the most part very quiet. (We spent our anniversary and New Years here). The gardens are relaxing and beautiful, even in December. We swam in the thermal pools twice a day. The breakfasts are extremely varied, and while others have...

This was the second time we stayed here and it didn't disappoint. The service throughout the hotel is exceptional, the restaurant very good and the unique selling point, the thermal hot spring, is unique. A special mention has to be made for the bar, whose waiters are very knowledgeable, friendly and provide excellent service. The only comment to make is...

In the heart of the very unusual, beautiful tropical forest, rooms were clean, service excellent. We paid for a balcony room which was fun to watch people walk to the thermal pool in their white robes from the hotel which came back rust colored after swimming. The hotel is a little worn but I thought the art deco (yes it...

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. ... more   less
