NEXT Hotel, a Connected Hotel by the Sea
Savoy Signature, leading Madeiran hotel brand with a growing portfolio of unique hotels and resorts, is proud to announce that the NEXT Hotel will be opening in Funchal, on 1st July this year. NEXT Hotel is a concept aimed to meet the needs of millennial-mindsets with a high-tech space; it celebrates both vibrancy and a connection with the local Madeiran community.
Industrial finishes and immersive art installations set against the backdrop of the vast Atlantic Ocean, complete with direct access to the sea, stunning rooftop pool and the high-quality characterising Savoy Signature hotels, will create one of the most sought-after hotel experiences on this subtropical jewel.
NEXT is fully adapted to the growing number of digital nomads with inspiring co-working space incorporated into the public areas of the hotel. There will also be a comprehensive hotel app, which guests will have access to from the time of booking.
The hotel has been designed by RH+ Architects, responsible for some of the destination’s best infrastructure, with the interiors developed by ISWORKROOM, globally celebrated interior design-firm, who have collaborated with the likes of One & Only and Rosewood Hotels.
The Spa will offer forest therapy and has partnered with sustainable beauty brand, Comfort Zone. There will be three treatment rooms, a sauna, Turkish bath, ice-fountain and gym.
Recharge Restaurant and Bar has exceptional views and will serve up flavourful sensations, with Hawaiian inspiration. There will also be a grab and go concept and Cloud Bar, the rooftop bar overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
The location is highly sought after, a short walk from the Old Town, with bustling nightlife, restaurants and bars and overlooking the scenic harbour of the charming capital, Funchal.
Ricardo Farinha - CCO, said of the launch “we are in an increasingly technological world. New generations are more autonomous, know what they want and want it in the moment. And NEXT comes to meet these needs. It offers a different concept, signed by Savoy Signature, with a contemporary and technological stamp, where guests will have the opportunity to customise their stay and choose the services they really need and value. This concept is not only directed to millennials but also to those who find themselves in an uncomplicated, contemporary and trend-oriented lifestyle, so anyone who enjoys technology and authenticity will enjoy learning about the latest addition to the Savoy Signature collection.”
It was on the threshold of the twentieth century when the Savoy Hotel opened its doors and began to host the most distinguished aristocracy and visitors from across Europe. From a small family business, the collection has become a legend in the art of hospitality, well-being and service. In 2015, the Saccharum Resort and Spa and the Hotel Calheta Beach, both located in Calheta on the south coast of Madeira (about 25 minutes from Funchal) became part of the group. This was a milestone in the company’s history and there are now six hotels proudly in the Savoy Signature Collection:
Savoy Palace – Tribute Cosmopolitan Resort
Royal Savoy – Heritage Sea Resort
Saccharum – Hedonist Design Resort
Calheta Beach – Fine Sand All-Inclusive Resort
Gardens – Panoramic Adults-Only Hotel
Next – Connected Sea Hotel, opening summer 2021
Now in the 21st century, the reputation of the Savoy Signature brand continues. The history of Savoy Signature has been reinvented but the goals remain the same: consolidating and projecting the centuries-old tradition and excellence of the Savoy brand at an international level.
