Intimate thermal retreat.
Tucked away on the volcanic island of São Miguel in the Azores, Octant Furnas is located in an area that has the highest concentration of hot springs in Europe. The resort blends the ancient with the modern and focuses heavily on relaxation.
Insider Tip

São Miguel is the largest island in the Azores and one of the top spots in Europe for whale and dolphin watching.

Where You’re Staying

Rooms are housed in a sleek, low-slung building that blends in with the natural landscape. The color palette is inspired by nature and embraces sulfuric yellows and lava stone gray as well as leather furniture for an earthy touch. A few vintage accessories complement the contemporary furniture.

Where to Dine

Fire is at the heart of À TERRA restaurant, which showcases the bounty of the land and the sea. Don’t miss the signature Cozido à TERRA, a stew of sweet potatoes, local sausage, beef brisket, and vegetables cooked in a hot spring. The restaurant’s Lounge is decorated with a nod to nature, with leather couches and plenty of greenery.

Where to Relax

A visit to the spa and its two thermal pools here is a must. One is housed in a black barn-style building with a glass roof and a waterfall massage jet. The other is outdoors and surrounded by greenery. For the full experience, try the thermal circuit which includes a Turkish bath, sauna, and pools. Massage, reflexology, and scrubs with brown sugar and pineapple are available.

What To Do

Explore the stunning landscape of São Miguel. Hop on a bike or hike through its irrigation terraces and trails. Paddle your way across the lagoons or go canyoning downriver to discover waterfalls and more hot springs.
