About the The Venue
At Sensi Nature and Spa, the staff are experts in creating unforgettable experiences.

Couples can hold an intimate wedding indoors or install a tent on the property to hold a larger event. The restaurant on the property can only accommodate up to 28 seating guests at any given moment. For numbers above that, it would be necessary to rent an outdoor structure to hold the reception dinner.

The Best Locations for Wedding Portraits on São Miguel in the Azores Islands, Portugal
São Miguel, the largest island in the Azores, offers a wide range of locations for stunning wedding portraits. While Sensi Nature and Spa is full of beautiful locations for wedding portraits, it’s worth traveling around the island for wedding portraits. The island boasts breathtaking landscapes. This includes volcanic lakes, lush forests, and dramatic cliffs. Here are some of my favorite locations on São Miguel for wedding portraits:
- Lagoa das Sete Cidades: This twin lake is one of the most iconic and photographed locations in the Azores. The contrasting colors of the blue and green lakes against the surrounding green hills make for a stunning backdrop.
- Terra Nostra Garden: This botanical garden is home to a natural thermal pool and a variety of plant species from around the world. The garden offers a peaceful and romantic setting for wedding portraits.
- Furnas Lake: A volcanic lake surrounded by hot springs and geysers. This creates a unique and otherworldly atmosphere for wedding portraits.
- Miradouro da Ponta do Escalvado: This cliffside lookout offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the rugged coastline of São Miguel. It’s the perfect location for dramatic and adventurous wedding portraits and only a 15 minute from Sensi.
