Twice the Funchal News has approached the remodelling works of the Hotel Santa Maria, in Rua João de Deus, Funchal, to be reborn as Turim Santa Maria Hotel.

Every time we go past the top of the old hotel unit presents itself differently.

The FN has already questioned the licensing authority, the Municipality of Funchal, but (still) did not get a response from the councilman with the private works portfolio.

It is recalled that the hotel group Turim Hotels, intends to reopen the hotel unit by the end of the year.

The future Turim Santa Maria Hotel, with four stars, will have 100 rooms.

Old Santa Maria, which opened its doors in 1964, was closed about eight years before being bought in 2016 by the Turin group.

It will be reborn as a top-class city unit, with an investment of around 10 million euros.
