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...

Came in February for Valentine's Day, hot spring and the garden were really impressive and the room was comfortable with everything we needed. Had dinner at the hotel restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed by the food!

We feel we really lucked into staying in the best place in town, if not the whole island. Great room and fabulous hot springs. Restaurant is pricey, but very nice too. We drove all over the island and didn't see a place where we would rather stay. The 12 acre gardens are so beautiful for walking through. Helpful staff. Just...

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.

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
