mysticism & nature at Terra Nostra Hotel Forest Thermalism Art Déco A mystical haven, hidden in the luxurious nature of São Miguel Island, that’s our way to define the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel. The old connection between the hotel and the Terra Nostra Park, in which it is imbedded, lasts for generations… in a fusion of classic charming hospitality and natural paradise on Earth. The spell of the Terra Nostra Park extends to the botanical garden, the natural, thermal and therapeutic swimming pools, and the geysers which, scattered, release their steam to the outside world, enfolding everything in relative humidity and mystery. The experience at Terra Nostra Garden Hotel is therefore unique, and we cannot separate the hotel from the exotic botanical garden…


Azores

Destination of the most adventurous, free minded travelers. The Azores fascinates with a kaleidoscope of strong greens on a navy blue background. You’ll find woods and geysers, volcanoes and lost villages‌ deep inside the Atlantic Ocean.


what’s up at terra nostra? A classic in the Azores hospitality scene since 1935, the Terra Nostra refreshed its looks and adapted to changing times, while maintaining its original charm. It now communicates in a more youthful, active, adventurous language… For example, the health and wellness component now includes facial treatments, body massages and holistic therapies where the plants being used are picked in the botanic park nearby.

Local products are emphasized: the herbs used in the hotel’s restaurant are acquired directly from the park. The Azores gastronomy finds its place as well: there is cheese, wine, butter and mineral waters, without forgetting the typical «cozido» of the Furnas and the traditional hake fillets… There are guided tours for those who want to indulge in the park’s secrets.


wellness With a therapeutic vocation, the Terra Nostra Hotel provides a range of services related to health and wellness...


environments & atmospheres The influence of the Bauhaus in the hotel’s architecture and visual elements reveal its starting point: 1935, Art Deco style.

Art Deco lines and geometrics converge with the surrounding nature, even featuring Portuguese imagery.

That was when the Bensaúde family got inspiration from the artistic movement that was conquering the world back then, reflecting modernism and speed.

The complete renovation undertaken in 2013 modernized both wings of the hotel (Art Deco and Garden wing) revitalizing the hotel’s atmosphere as a symbol of rediscovered elegance.

But that doesn’t mean the hotel turned its back on the habitat in which it lives.

Terra Nostra Park Terra Nostra Park displays a sublime historical and scientific legacy that everyone has the right to discover. Founded in the eighteenth century by the American consul Thomas Hickling, the park was later expanded. The plenitude of its natural ingenuity is scattered through gardens, forests, streams and lakes.

The Park proves to be a charming spectacle of life where everything blooms. Your spirit is refreshed in an intimate encounter with nature.
