Furnas Boutique Hotel

Octant Furnas Hotel

The Azores, Portugal

Octant Furnas Hotel is set just outside central Furnas, in a tranquil setting in which you can spend some time relaxing and rejuvenating. Entering the lobby, you’ll be greeted with natural landscapes behind the check-in desks, and to your left you’ll find the retro lobby bar decorated with records on the walls and an old typewriter sitting on the bar.

The 54 rooms are comfortable, with deep green and grey tones and fresh white linen. All rooms offer air conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as tea and coffee facilities, a robe, slippers and towel to use in the pool or spa.

In addition to pampering treatments, the spa offers you a complimentary water circuit in the indoor, heated therapeutic pool. There is also an outdoor pool which is cold in the summer, but heated in winter. Both pools use water from the nearby geothermal springs, with heat from the geothermal water removed to cool down the pools and heat water elsewhere in the hotel.

During your stay you may wish to take advantage of the hotel’s daily complimentary activity, which changes throughout the year. It can range from joining a local beach clean up to learning to mix the perfect gin and tonic with the staff at the hotel’s superb restaurant, À Terra.


We love Octant Furnas Hotel for its relaxing environment, friendly service and attention to detail.

Rooms are adorned in natural green and grey tones for a relaxing atmosphere. All rooms offer coffee and tea facilities, air conditioning and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as a robe, towel and slippers for the spa.

The hotel is located just outside the heart of Furnas, about a five to 10-minute walk from the quiet village. In about five minutes you can drive to some nearby hot springs and enjoy the therapeutic waters, or if you’d like to venture a bit further, you can visit the nearby coastal towns of Povoação and Nordeste for a stroll.

Food and drink

The hotel’s signature restaurant, À Terra, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily in the indoor dining area or outside on the patio. Breakfast technically ends at 11am, but if you’d rather wait until late morning, the restaurant will be happy to bring out a few breakfast items for you, if requested. If you have an early departure, coffee, ham and pastries are laid out in the lobby bar. Lunch and dinner feature locally sourced ingredients such as fresh fish or beef, as well as hand-made pizzas from the wood-fired oven.

Facilities and activities

You can take advantage of a complimentary circuit in the heated indoor pool with therapeutic jets, filled with water from the local geothermal springs. There is also an outdoor pool which is cool in the summer and heated in the winter. In the afternoon, the outdoor pool also offers bar service from the restaurant. If you’d like to pamper yourself, you can take advantage of several spa treatments, or you may wish to use the state-of-the-art gym. In addition to all of the facilities on site, the hotel offers daily, free activities, such as tea workshops, mixology lessons or a weekly clean up at the local beach.


The hotel has an adapted room featuring wider doorways and a walk-in shower.
