The first Pestana CR7 hotel opens in Funchal
The first Pestana CR7 Lifestyle Hotel has opened, a few months after Pestana Hotels & Resorts announced they had teamed up with the international football star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Inspired by the Portuguese football captain Cristiano Ronaldo, the Hotel has opened in Funchal, Madeira, home of both the Cristiano and Dionísio Pestana, president of the Pestana Hotels & Resorts group.
Located at the marina in Funchal, the inaugural Pestana CR7 has 49 rooms. The CR7 Suite, occupies one floor of the building and a long hallway resembles the beautiful game, with green carpets, lights along the floor and the CR7 shirt hunged on the wall. The rooms are all decorated with a contemporay design and elements of the Portuguese footballer’s long career.
This project becames the first hotel to open as part of the Pestana CR7 Lifestyle Hotels brand, and represents an investment of €75 million. Three other properties are set to open in the future: one in downtown Lisbon later this year, one in Madrid and one in New York in 2017.
