Sentido Galomar in Detail

Your Wellness Hotel

The Ashoka Spa and the Adults Only philosophy (ages 16 and up) make the energy self-sufficient Sentido Galomar, Madeira's first 'Green Hotel', a prime destination for couples, wellness, and yoga enthusiasts. The unique location directly above the sea provides the perfect backdrop for your holiday in Madeira. The hotel is part of a roughly 14,000 sqm resort consisting of 3 hotels (Sentido Galosol, Sentido Galomar & Ayurveda Hotel Alpino Atlântico). The facilities of all hotels and the entire resort are available to all guests.

Your Holiday Destination

Located in one of the most beautiful spots in the south of Madeira, amidst the tranquil villa district of Caniço de Baixo, Sentido Galomar sits in a prime front-row position. The bay is just about 1.5 miles from the centre of Caniço and is on the climatically favoured side of the island. Its unique seaside location provides the perfect backdrop for your holiday in Madeira. The centre of Funchal is about 7.5 miles away, and the airport is about 5 miles away.

Food & Drinks

Indulge in a lavish breakfast buffet at the "Atlantis" restaurant. If you opt for half board, the evening buffet is served at the "Ondamar" restaurant with a terrace at Sentido Galosol (about 50 metres away). For those booking full board, enjoy a three-course lunch menu at the "Blue Bar" in Galosol. Additionally, in the evenings, you have the option to savour traditional Madeiran cuisine at the à la carte "Atlantis" restaurant and Italian cuisine at the pizzeria (at an additional cost). Refreshing drinks are available at the pool bar and the "Capoeira Bar" with a stunning sea view. Also available are local, organic, lactose-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian dishes. Vegan options available upon request.

Spa & Wellness

Relax by the sea water outdoor pool and on the sun terrace as well as in the wellness area with two panoramic saunas (Finnish and Bio) overlooking the sea, infrared cabin, and steam bath. The neighbouring sister hotel Sentido Galosol also features another outdoor pool with sun terrace, an indoor pool (about 28°C), and two more saunas. Additionally, the resort's own bathing bay in the underwater nature reserve with its own sea access, the sea water pool, and the adults-only area (accessible by lift or stairs) are freely accessible to all resort guests.

The Ashoka Spa (about 400 sqm, open daily), inspired by nature and the five elements, offers a variety of massages, beauty and energy treatments and was chosen as one of the top 3 spas in the 'Green Spa' category at the Spa Star Awards 2019.

Sun terrace for yoga and meditation.

Fitness & Courses

At the professional Galo Active Fitness Club (located at the neighbouring Sentido Galosol) spanning approximately 2,500 sqm, you have access to cardio and strength equipment. You can also book a qualified personal trainer (for a fee, approx. €45 (£39 / $48) per hour). Additionally, you can participate in a sports programme with over 40 classes per week, including Zumba, Step, Spinning, Pilates, Yoga, and Nordic Walking (some at a small fee). There is also a sports hall, squash, a volleyball court, and a basketball court (reservation on request, for a fee). A tennis court is available just outside the facility, about 500 metres away (for a fee).


The resort features its own diving base with a diving school (approx. March-December) and a private mountain bike station. Kayak rental, canyoning, swimming with dolphins, and other outdoor activities can be booked on site. Additionally, Madeira is a magnificent hiking paradise, ideal for extensive hikes.

Incredibly great hotel in a super environment

The staff were so incredibly nice and attentive. The hotel Galomar is located in an apartment area and is not too big but has everything you need. As an adult hotel there was no noise from children or any other disturbance. The staff cleaned all day and repaired any damage. The briefing from Nicole was really worthwhile. We were given lots of good tips. The breakfast buffet was really great with lots of options which even varied a little every day. We had a view of the sea which was really worth it. We were personally picked up in a car and taken back to the airport. There are actually 3 hotles and you can use the spa area etc from the other hotels too. However, the Galomar as an adult hotel was the best for us as an older couple. The Atlantis only has 23 rooms and specializes in Alovera. The Galosol is for people who are looking for action and want to have fun in the fitness center etc., which is free for hotel guests. If you wanted to, you could reserve a buffet for the evening in the Galosol for €22.50. In short, it was a dream vacation without any problems.

Attractive hotel with potential for improvement

Unfortunately, there was no information board at our Sentido Galomar hotel - any information had to be requested in person at reception. The welcome on the day of arrival was unfortunately not very extensive, but rather a "pig's gallop". We had also expected organized tours (jogging and walking) from the hotel.

Beautiful location and house, food could be finer, healthier and more varied.

Mattress fortunately not too hard, quality could be better, is very cheap model. Ajurvedic food was not available, a bit disappointing because the term is used in connection with Galomar
