Brazil excels in terms of hospitality and luxury holiday style. It tends towards private, suave glamour of the boutique hotels, as well as having the Robinson Crusoe style ‘barefoot luxury’. Private villas, plunge pools, spas galore and wide, sweeping white sand beaches all with a wide choice of dining options, this is Brazilian honeymoon style.
Brazil is the land of exquisite spas and private plunge pools, of pampering and fusion cultures. It is a country where hospitality is highly valued as a cultural heritage and the competition among the high-starred hotels raises the barrier within these ratings. With a glorious natural landscape and pristine coastline, there is a good choice of accommodation from which to lap up the location.
The diversity of this country makes it one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in South America. There is no other place in the world where you can combine majestic waterfalls, fabled cities, wildlife and most importantly, pristine deserted beaches. Brazil has grown quickly in the past few years, but there are still some spectacular, unspoilt areas which we would encourage you to explore!
Barra de Sao Miguel is a small fishing village in the heart of Bahia. The area is lined with pristine Brazilian beaches, most of which are deserted, making it a perfect place to beachcomb and get away from it all. The town itself has a few bars and restaurants, but really you come here for the beach.
Fernando de Noronha is Brazil’s best hideaway. It offers a range of attractions that include snorkelling, diving, walking as well as wildlife. Its beaches have been voted the best in Brazil. An archipelago ideal for self-indulgence and relaxation, yet it also offers numerous activities for the more active.
The Marau Peninsula is a natural paradise situated between Itacare and Morro do Sao Paulo. This is a remote place with endless windswept beaches, rock pools ideal for swimming in and a place to get away from it all.
Pipa is a true beach paradise. The north east coast of Brazil has long been the place to go and relax. The surrounding area has a range of fine beaches as well as sand dunes in the interior, ideal for exploring by dune buggy! The coast also has some of the best seafood in Brazil.
The Pantanal is best described as a small window of Africa in the heart of South America, without the big game! It is considered to be the world’s biggest wetland area, covering an area the size of Belgium and is situated between the states of Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul (to the north of Iguazu) and extends into Bolivia and Paraguay, with the majority of the Pantanal lying inside Brazil.
Trancoso was put on the map a few years ago now when a string of film stars took their holidays here. Trancoso is a place which is surrounded by untouched tropical forests with turquoise bays and white sand beaches, making a perfect get away destination.
