Our first stop on the island and it was a fantastic place to start the week. They let us check in at about 8:30 am because our flight landed first thing in the morning. Without a doubt, their gardens are the most amazing place to explore.The gardens and hot pools are the perfect remedy for the weary traveler. Luxurious and...

History of this Hotel goes back to the Art Deco era. Still this is all new and building looks new with very modern rooms, most of them with access to terrace (highly recommend including loungers) or balcony. They do have a nice indoor pool with sauna, steam room and even a small gym and spa. Best of it however are...

We're stayed one week on Sao Miguel and three weeks on the mainland, mostly in Pousadas, which were all very nice. But this hotel was the best of all. Its location next to a gorgeous botanical garden, the free use of the adjoining thermal pool (a fantastic experience), the lovely room, a perfectly appointed bathroom, attractive common areas, and the...

I've traveled quite a bit, but this hotel is special-it's a solid 4star Art Deco hotel with 5 star amenities, most importantly the access to the amazing botanical garden and 24/7 access to the hot springs. They rent bikes to Furnas lake, and their service is very friendly overall. We'll be back for sure & recommend to friends!

My husband and I enjoyed 3 nights at the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel at the end of February. We opted not to splash out for garden view room with a terrace and instead chose a standard room with a double bed - Room 137. While the room was tight, it was all we needed and faced an orange garden. It...

I just loved everything this hotel offers, specially when sitting on the balcony listening to birds' singing, or hiding myself in the warm water at the edge of the huge outdoor pool waiting for a cat which quietly walked by at night ... What an unforgetable feeling!

Visited for 4 nights for our 25th anniversary. It was like staying in the old time hotels. Service was impeccable and the food was exceptional. We enjoyed a walk every morning before breakfast in the botanical garden and a swim in the hot pool every evening. Breakfast was wonderful with something for everyone and lots of local cuisine. We had...

A family of four adults just returned from six wonderful days at Terra Nostra Hotel in Furnas in the Azores. The gardens are remarkable; moss-covered paths lead you from one magical setting to the next. Ponds fed by hotspring streams, ferns from around the globe, gigantic hardwoods and evergreens, camillias of countless varieties, and birds flitting everywhere. The food in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
