Going Green

At ASPA we have a strong commitment in protecting Madeiran heritage, reason why we spend hours and hard work keeping the original features of our historical buildings and respecting the time and style on every refurbishment. But protecting our heritage should not be only about protecting the past, it must be about protecting the future as well, and passing a valuable legacy to the generations to come. As part of this commitment, in the last few months, we have been planning several actions and making some refurbishments to become more environmentally sustainable. With these changes, we expect to offer a higher quality experience to our guests while decreasing the carbon footprint. Please check our sustainability policy here to learn more about our commitment.
