White Exclusive Suites & Villas are part of a beautiful complex which is located within the remains of an old manor. Steeped in history and surrounded by the characteristic natural beauty of São Miguel Island, a stay here is perfect for families and couples alike.
Featuring both chic luxury suites and large contemporary villas, guests can choose to enjoy the wider facilities of the complex or spread out and make themselves at home in a villa. Throughout all of the suites and villas traditional farmhouse features and artisanal Azorean furniture can be found, and most also have stunning ocean views which can be enjoyed from private terraces.
There is a lovely restaurant on site, which sits overlooking the deep blue of the Atlantic Ocean. The food served is all locally sourced and features lots of freshly caught seafood, as well as seasonal vegetables and traditionally Portuguese dishes.
There are plenty of water sports on offer here as well as a wonderful spa and a heated saltwater pool which is built into the cliff face. The villas also have private pools. For adventurous guests who want to venture out and explore more of the island's beauty, fishing and quad biking tours can be arranged. Most exciting in our eyes is the option to go diving inside the crater of a nearby dormant volcano on the Vila Franca Islet.
The views from the Ocean Suites are particularly stunning and after a long day of diving or exploring their balconies are the ideal place to relax and unwind while overlooking the ocean.
