Looking for complete relaxation in a gorgeous setting on the coast of Brazil? Look no further than the Makenna Resort, a trendsetter in hospitality design. As the owners say, “Modern architecture with elegant minimalist lines reflect the lightness of the marine environment. Light and color makes the place an incomparable experience for the senses, a place of art and inspiration.” With privacy and seclusion in mind, this resort offers only 16 cottages — so you are literally “far from the madding crowd.” Enter the spacious lobby, with its open-air “roof” and central green courtyard, and you’ll know you’re in a special place indeed; notice the friendly red bar and lounge area at one end, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink and relax in view of swaying palms.
The bungalow and suite designs are indeed “minimalist” at their essence: spacious, clean, and uncluttered. But the luxury offered in these unobtrusive retreats will let you know the approach to guests’ comfort is anything but “minimal.” You can choose between a Chalet Superluxo or Luxury Chalets (or “bungalows”) and get expansive sea views, covered terraces, whirlpools, king-sized beds — with open-air bedrooms— as well as air conditioning, stereos, minibars, and even complimentary bathrobes for your stay. And be sure to take advantage of the Makenna Spa while you’re visiting: everything from wet saunas to ayurvedic treatment — massages, foot spas, shirobianga, hot stones, and more — is available, tailored to your needs. A secluded, laid-back atmosphere of pampering and relaxation: Brazil’s Makenna Resort.
