Centrally located in the principal town of Santa Maria island, Charming Blue is a stylish boutique hotel opened in 2016. A great deal of effort has gone into the design of the interior, the result being a tasteful place to unwind on Santa Maria for a few days.
With only 15 rooms, Charming Blue (also known as Casa dos Monteiros) is small but has excellent facilities for guests. An additional bonus is the hotel restaurant, which dares to be different with cuisine that is a step above anything available elsewhere on the island.
Rooms are spacious and modern, with AC, free Wi-Fi and TV with international channels. All have well-appointed private bathrooms, some have balconies.
Other facilities available to guests are a swimming pool, and spa with sauna, Jacuzzi and small gym, as well as a comfortable lounge area and bar, and bike hire for the energetic. The hotel also operates its own dive centre.
Located in the pretty coastal capital of Vila do Porto on Santa Maria island, Charming Blue makes a great base to explore from. See below for more information on Santa Maria island.
You can easily be collected from Charming Blue for tours, biking and guided walking or you might prefer to hire a car and explore this stunning island on your own.
