The current richest footballer in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo, opens the doors of his new Five-Star hotel this week – and we can reveal what is inside.
The Euro 2016 and Champions League winner is on holiday on Ibiza, recovering from a busy season on board a private yacht. But the 31yrs old Real Madrid superstar will return to his native Funchal in Madeira for the grand opening of his boutique hotel this Friday.
It’s designed to appeal to ‘millennial traveler’, according to the chain, with the hotel aiming to become a “trendsetter” in the Portuguese harbour spot.

The stylish hotel is decorated with Ronaldo memorabilia, with signed shirts adorning some of the walls in a “contemporary art deco” style – the floors are furnished with grass-effect carpets.
There are 48 rooms, with the basic rooms priced at £180-a-night – all equipped with WIFI, mood lighting and high tech shower heads.
And the single CR7 suite -which costs £575-a-night – boasts a PlayStation4 , virtual reality glasses and games, plus cardio workout equipment.
The hotel wellness suite even offer a CR7 “Get in Shape” programme for guests hoping to replicate a Ronaldo six-pack, accompanying its exclusive outdoor gym and sauna facilities.
The rooftop swimming pool appears to be the highlight of the hotel, overlooking the views of Funchal and the harbour.
The hotel – just a stones thrown away from Ronaldo’s official museum – is the first of four the former Manchester United player is involved in launching.
The £70million Pestana CR7 portfolio will be completed by a luxury site in Lisbon that will open later this year, while sites in Madrid and New York are due to launch in 2017 .
