Commited to Quality
Since the dawn of the last century the Savoy has been welcoming Europe's gentry to Madeira's fair shores. The excellence of our service standards exceeded the boundaries of the island itself. Today, even in the technological era, the tradition continues. A result of our ongoing commitment and dedication based on attention to detail and highly personalised service, which distinguishes us from others.
Our mission is put into practice the know-how and experience that we have nurtured over the years, thus contributing to guests full satisfaction. Our motto is to always comply with legal requirements, continuous quality improvement, enhance the highest health and safety standards and thus exceeding the expectations of our discerning guest-clientele. Protecting the environment is also a constant concern for us. The best recognition we can hope for is to have each and every one of our guests consider the Savoy as Your Home Away From Home and depart with the aspiration of returning in the near future.
