- Trancoso @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Be a guest at the most cosmopolitan pousada (inn) in Trancoso. The owners, a Brazilian and an Italian, moved to the fishing village in Bahia to open a decoration store, Etnia, which became the inn. The nomad spirit of the owners can be noticed in the eight bungalows, inspired in different destinations around the world – from the African safaris to the Mediterranean sea. Among them, the Trancoso bungalow, with regional decoration, translates the Brazilian spirit.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Try your hand at a round of golf at the Terravista, one of Brazil’s best and most beautiful courses, designed by American architect Dan Blankenship. The emblematic 14th hole is worthy of a post card: it lies right on the edge of the sea cliff, with a view of the beautiful Taípe Beach; and your choice of golf club will depend entirely on the day’s winds. Guests receive a special rate for the course, which lies a mere four kilometers from the pousada (inn).
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Guests can choose between four restored traditional fishermen’s houses in the Quadrado, the most charming town square in Brazil, or six houses among a lush garden setting. All the houses were restored or designed by Dutch architect Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods and reclaimed materials.
- Tiradentes @en
A MINAS GERAIS STATE EXPEDITION BY RIO LIFE TOURS - Ride a horse through the outskirts of Tiradentes, in the state of Minas Gerais, seeing first-hand how the rich landscape transitions from the Atlantic Forest to the Cerrado (savannah region) and stopping along the way at ranches and small villas to learn about the local way of life. All of the horses are mangalargas, a Brazilian breed that is easy to mount and good for both experienced riders as well as beginners.
- São Paulo
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Enjoy a warm and charismatic Brazilian-style welcome at a boutique hotel along São Paulo’s Oscar Freire Street. At the Emiliano, “Brazilianess” is in every detail: from the butlers’ assiduity when attending to guests’ every desire to a reception with personalized Havaianas flip-flops sized just right, amenities that draw their inspiration from the Atlantic Forest (from the exclusive Santa Pele cosmetics line) and courtesies like a welcome massage and gratuitous ironing services.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Revel in Brazilian music and jazz at Baretto, the hotel lobby bar; and let the dimmed lights, the leather armchairs and the exquisite drinks accompany you late into the night. The sounds of pianists Moacir Zwarg or Mario Edson, together with their musical bands, and of singers Lorena Lobato, Anna Setton, Grazielle Carvalho and Giana Viscardi crown the memorable nights at Baretto.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Sip a cocktail from the deck chair of the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Skye, while enjoying the breathtaking view of Ibirapuera Park and the São Paulo skyline. And enjoy the aesthetic effects of the red-tiled pool while listening to chill out music spun by top DJs every night.
- Salvador @en
Wind your way through the steep streets of the Pelourinho, a complex of colonial buildings protected as a Unesco World Heritage Site in the heart of Salvador, Brazil’s first capital city. As you explore the narrow cobblestone streets, discover the plethora of baroque churches and the cultural centers interspersed with artists workshops and restaurants that beckon you to try Bahian spices in moqueca (Brazilian fish stew) and bobó (stewed shrimp in coconut milk). Your journey of discovery is sure to become even more exhilarating as you experience the distinctive drumming of Olodum, the traditional Afro-Brazilian percussion group that rehearses in the Pelô – as the locals so affectionately call the neighborhood.
- Rio de Janeiro @en
Rio de Janeiro @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Relive the glamour of Rio’s golden years at the most iconic hotel along the Copacabana Beach. Built in 1923 and inspired by the Negresco in Nice and the Carlton in Cannes, the Copa, as it is so affectionately called, is the perfect place to don an evening gown for a Carnaval gala or to forget about time while wading in the emblematic pool on the ground floor.
AN UNFORGETABLE MOMENT - To open the curtain upon waking and contemplate the iconic scenario of Copacabana Beach. To relax in the infinity edge pool, on the rooftop, with spectacular views of the sea. To have available one’s own butler. And there is an innovation: among the 90 hotel apartments are the Spa Suites, on the same floor as Santapele Spa, with exclusive advantages for the guest who prioritizes an experience of memorable well-being.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Watch the sunset over Ipanema with the famed beach at your feet from the balcony of one of the rooms or atop the pool terrace. From where you stand, you’ll be privy to three postcard-perfect views of Rio: the Arpoador, the Dois Irmãos Mountain and the Corcovado. You’ll find it challenging just figuring out where to look first (let alone deciding which sunset drink to order as you take in the breathtaking scene).

- Praia do Espelho + Caraíva @en
Praia do Espelho + Caraíva @en
A SOUTH OF BAHIA EXPEDITION BY CBV INCOMING - Meet native Brazilians from the Pataxó Tribe and discover the grounds where Portuguese navigators landed when they reached Brazil back in 1500. Then take a bike ride through preserved Atlantic Forest, kayak down a river and enjoy a picnic at Itaquena Beach, with its clear waters and coral reefs.
- Porto Feliz @en
Porto Feliz @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Bask in the peaceful remoteness of a private hotel and farm 100 kilometers (62 miles) from São Paulo where the air is pure and fresh; the grounds breathtakingly surrounded by preserved Atlantic Forest. And in addition to wonderful forests and gardens on the property, the 150-meter (164-yard) lake, with treated water, is ripe for reflecting and swimming.
- Parque Nacional Jaú @en
Parque Nacional Jaú @en
- Paraty @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - The view from the hotel’s windows and balconies boasts the islands that dot the Bay of Paraty, the mountains, the Atlantic Forest, the dome of the Santa Rita Church (the city’s oldest) and the roof tiles of the historic mansions. Located in one of the quietest parts of downtown Paraty, the hotel was restored and decorated by architect Renato Tavolaro, an expert in colonial Brazil, to faithfully recreate the original 18th-century façade. The hotel comprises just nine suites to ensure guests an intimate and customized experience.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Enjoy the collection of 2,000 books chosen by journalist Miguel Conde, curator of the Paraty International Literary Festival in 2012 and 2013. Named the Best Pousada (inn) in Brazil by Guia Quatro Rodas 2014, the Pousada Literária (Literary Inn) does justice to its name: in addition to the hotel library, each room includes a reading nook, complete with armchairs, lamps and a menu of books. Guests can also visit the recently opened Marés Bookstore, six mansions down. Since 2012, the Pousada Literária has been the official hotel of this world-famous famous literary event, providing accommodations for all visiting authors.
- Pantanal @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Go on a photographic safari to see the breathtaking diversity of the Pantanal up close; the region is home to more than 80 species of mammal, 650 species of bird and 260 species of fish. Macaws, toucans and capybaras are easy to spot and, if you are lucky, you will catch a glimpse of anteaters and jaguars as well. Visitors traverse the fields and forests from open trucks led by two guides: one caimaner, a bilingual guide with a degree in the natural sciences; and one native driver who is deeply familiar with Pantanal geography and culture. You also should not miss the alligators night tour and the chance to see the large eyes of these incredible animals shining in the moonlit waters.
- Novo Airão @en
- Manaus @en
A RIO NEGRO EXPEDITION BY MATUETÉ TOUR OPERATOR - Wake up to the sound of birds singing in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon while traveling down the Rio Negro on an exclusive yacht that accommodates just nine passengers. The fully-equipped ship ensures a luxurious experience in one of the planet’s most remote regions.
- Mairiporã @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Renew your energy with an Amazon Rain Forest mud spa treatment, a natural moisturizer that is rich in nutrients, mineral salts and antioxidants. Then enjoy a delicious Vichy bath with seven water jets followed by an ayurvedic massage that bids you to fall into deep state of relaxation. In addition to the spa’s main complex, which includes 21 rooms, massages are also offered at the five kiosks sprinkled around the woods.
- Lençóis Maranhenses @en
Lençóis Maranhenses @en
A LENÇÓIS MARANHENSES AND SURROUNDINGS EXPEDITION BY AURORAECO TOUR OPERATOR - Walk among the incredible dunes of the clear, fine sands of the Lençóis Maranhenses – a 383,000-acre national park that is constantly being transformed by the winds; then go for a swim in the crystal-clear waters of the lakes formed by the rains.
- Jericoacoara @en
- Itacaré @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Surrender to the purification ritual at the Shamash Spa. This treatment takes its inspiration from the powerful baths of the Bahian culture. The pressure of the massage, the aromas, the view of the beautiful Bahian sea, and the music and sounds of the Atlantic Forest all stimulate your every sense. The ritual begins with an exfoliation using a mixture of course salt and coconut oil to ease your tensions, followed by a bath in warm water infused with seven herbs to calm the skin and breath. This blend helps restore balance, clear the mind, and ensure freshness and lightness.
- Ibitipoca @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Staying in a 1715 plantation manor house restored to its original features is like traveling through time – but with contemporary comforts like a heated bathroom floor, marble bathtubs, king-size beds, Egyptian cotton bedding and L'Occitane amenities. The surroundings invite one to connect with nature; the hotel is on a lake in a beautiful valley, surrounded by waterfalls, natural pools and trails stretching over more than 4000 hectares (almost 10,000 acres) of the Ibitipoca Reserve, a protected area adjacent to the Ibitipoca State Park. All of this – together with sustainability measures and local community involvement – yielded two awards for the Ibitipoca Reserve from the prestigious Condé Nast Johansens.
- Guajiru @en
One can admire the calm sea of Guajiru Beach from a unique accommodation, with a deck facing the beach and private pool. The Vila, as it's called, has 140 square meters (1,507 square feet) and comforts like a private wine stock and a 47-inch TV. In the sophisticated bungalows of 90 square meters (969 square feet), it's a pleasure to relax in the delightful bathrooms, all with a jacuzzi for the couple.
- Governador Celso Ramos @en
Governador Celso Ramos @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Picture this: dinner prepared exclusively for a single couple each night on the small island in front of the hotel, lavishly decorated with flowers and illuminated both by candlelight and moonlight; a six-course sampler menu prepared by the chef, with platters like laquered duck magret with lentils; wines handpicked by a sommelier and discreet service by your private waiter to round out the evening. It cannot get more romantic than this.
- Foz do Iguaçu @en
Foz do Iguaçu @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT -Experience the most famous waterfalls in the world as yours and yours alone, just steps from your room and outside visiting hours. Guests who stay at the only hotel located within the Iguaçu National Park are invited to explore the premises early in the morning or in the late afternoon from the empty look-out points, like the famous Garganta do Diabo (Devil’s Neck) Lookout, that are so sought after during park hours.
- Fernando de Noronha @en
Fernando de Noronha @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Sueste Bay from anywhere you look, whether from your king-size bed, from the restaurant, from the hammock hanging on your private balcony or while wallowing in the infinity-edge pool. Revel in your around-the-clock postcard-perfect experience exclusive to hotel guests. Want more? You can swim with marine turtles right at the beach.
- Delta do Parnaíba @en
- Corumbau @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Stay in one of the sustainable wood houses designed in typical fashion of the constructions from southern Bahia without compromising on comfort. Just nine of these houses were built within an Atlantic Forest reserve and right along the shore of the nearly deserted Corumbau Beach.
- Campos do Jordão @en
Campos do Jordão @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - One can enjoy the sensational Serra da Mantiqueira landscape and the most sophisticated elements of Brazilian culture: designer furniture, works of art, the library collection, the background music – all of these are by Brazilian artists and curated by experts in each area.
- Camburi @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Celebrate your wedding, anniversary or any other romantic date with the sea and the green mountains of Camburi beach, in São Paulo, as backdrop. At Nau Royal, the concierge’s main task is to grant all of the couple’s wishes on special dates, from the suite’s decoration with flowers to a dinner at a gazebo on the beach. At wedding ceremonies, the couple and their guests can enjoy the hotel’s complete structure, which can host events with up to 400 people. The 15 suites, all with 600 thread Trussardi trousseau, can be entirely booked for the party – one of them, the bridal suite, has an ofuro (japanese tub) for two bathers and design by Brazilian architect Debora Aguiar.
- Camboriú @en
- Búzios @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Watch the evening roll in over the Baía da Armação, fishing boats dotting the sea, from the idyllic Mediterranean-style terrace at Casas Brancas Boutique Hotel & Spa overlooking the Bardot Waterfront. The panoramic vista and impeccable service are the timeless treasures of a hotel still tended by the same family that built it in the 1970s. It currently includes 32 suites, each uniquely decorated in predominately light tones that focus on wellbeing. The hotel figures on Condé Nast Johansens collection and is recommended in the best-seller 1000 Places to See Before You Die.
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Take a romantic getaway to this fishing village that became famous among travelers in the 1960s and has grown more charming with each passing year. At the hotel, couples are greeted with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and a platter of strawberries as they look out over the calm ocean at Ferradura Beach. They are then treated to an aromatic bath sparkled with rose petals, meditation and a massage at the panoramic hotel spa. The end of the day includes a boat ride, complete with picnic hors d’oeuvres, while watching the sun set on the horizon, followed by dinner for two.
- Barra de São Miguel @en
Barra de São Miguel @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Disconnect from the world at one of the 11 villas of the Kenoa Resort, located on the beach of Barra de São Miguel, in the state of Alagoas. The greenest waters of the Brazilian coast can be found along this stretch of the country’s Northeastern Region – a breathtaking scene, especially when viewed from one of the resort’s private infinity-edge pools.
- Aquiraz @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Forget about the real world as you enjoy the exclusive deck Jacuzzi or seaside pool in the Premium Bungalow. The most luxurious room at the resort is 134-square meter (1,442-square feet) and can comfortably accommodate up to four people in its spacious, light and breezy rooms. This is for those who want the best of both worlds: the privacy of home and the comforts expected of a hotel.
- Alta Floresta @en
Alta Floresta @en
AN UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT - Picture yourself relaxing on a lounger on a floating deck, surrounded by the Amazon rainforest and dividing your attention between the calming sound of the crystal clear Cristalino river waters and the occasional sighting of monkeys, birds and butterflies. The floating deck is one of the highlights of Cristalino Lodge. The 144 m² deck includes loungers and hammocks where you can relax after an invigorating swim in the river, right in the jungle. At night, a bonfire is lit, creating the perfect excuse to spend hours outdoors, admiring the starry sky.
