Pedras do Mar is a luxury resort and spa in Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel (Azores main island) complete with spa and quite possibly the most beautiful outdoor pool on the entire island.

Although you're located in one of the best spots of Sao Miguel (with easy access to whale watching, beautiful hiking spots and more), you still may not want to leave this luxury hotel: there's indoor spa treatments, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools - aka there's something for everyone! 

Rooms are spacious and beautiful with a lovely wooden theme.  The only problem you might find is choosing between an incredible Seaview and an incredible Mountain view - both iconic sites in the Azores:

Pedras do Mar offer free wifi, free parking and an incredible free continental breakfast. 

Cost: Prices from £126/night

Terra Nostra Garden Hotel

On Sao Miguel Island, the most luxurious hotel near Furnas is Terra Nostra

Furnas is an absolute must for anyone and everyone visiting the Azores - It's a dormant volcano which has natural volcanic springs good for bathing, cooking traditional Azorean stews and more.

Terra Nostra is the perfect place to visit Furnas from, it's so close that they actually incorporate some of the natural springs of Furnas into the hotel! Yes, if you stay at Terra Nostra you will get to bathe in the natural, healing springs of Furnas. Furthermore, they have a spa, indoor and outdoor pools and so much more.

For some (aka most), true luxury can only be had when there are no kids around. So for an adult-only guesthouse with outdoor pool and bar, head to Pocinhobay.

Pocinhobay hotel is situated on Pico, which has the highest volcanic mountain of all the Azores Islands. Mount Pico dominates the skyline and is just 12 miles from Pocinhobay - making Pocinhobay the perfect spot for day trips to Mount Pico, where you can do so many cool things like volcano hiking and bird watching.
