Calheta, Madeira - Portugal


Overlooking the sea, Saccharum is a design hotel nested in a small natural shelter on the south western coast of the island. The contemporary decoration was idealized by the renowned interior designer Nini Andrade Silva, together with RH+ Arquitectos, who found inspiration in the local process of making sugar with the saccharine cane.

The Saccharum is located in Calheta on the west coast of Madeira, next to the marina and sandy beach, sitting proudly between the impressive mountains and the dazzling ocean. Built on the same site where an old sugar cane mill once stood, the hotel adopted the local sugar cane heritage as part of its interior décor. The atmosphere deepens the communion with the surrounding nature and Madeira’s ancient traditions. The spa itself is a temple of serenity and natural well-being.
