With beautiful beaches, lush, virgin forests and spectacular ocean front views, Brazil has some of the most indulgent and heavenly getaways to escape from the stresses of modern life. Why not combine that with soothing and restorative treatments at some of the best spas in the country? Here are four of the very best across Brazil.
Kenoa Resort & Spa
Surrounded by lagoons, virgin tropical forest and calm ocean waves, the Kenoa Resort offers a truly blissful experience to indulge and soothe yourself in. With only 23 rooms, this creates a delightfully intimate atmosphere, letting you take in the stunning natural scenery and all of the resort’s facilities to best effect. The resort’s in-house spa offers a wellness sanctuary that caters to all fives senses, with holistic, natural treatments designed to inspire wellbeing and a balanced state of mind. You can also make use of your very own personal trainer, to guide you through a tailored fitness programme.
Casa Brancas Hotel & Spa
Located in Buzios, Casa Brancas is a stylish, modern retreat, away from the hectic pace of urban life, but within easy reach of the iconic stretch of Copacabana Beach. Breathtaking ocean views, silky soft sandy beaches and Mediterranean style décor combine to create a highly pleasurable contemporary escape. With a range of packages and services within its spa, including massages, facials, and beauty treatments, as well as more intensive treatments including Yoga and Tai-chi practices, Ayurvedic body massages and so much more, you are guaranteed to come away feeling revived and restored.
Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa
With characteristically understated minimalist style and a rustic, laidback atmosphere, this is an upmarket retreat with a difference. With less of the obvious flamboyance and glamour of some of its more ostentatious counterparts, the Uxua Casa is a boutique hotel, located close to the stunningly picturesque village of Trancoso. Despite the understated atmosphere, the experience you’ll get here is nothing short of luxury – expect wonderful handmade soaps and oils, daily Ashtanga yoga sessions, deeply soothing massages and the signature treatment: the white clay lagoon treatment, which leaves skin feeling incredibly soft and supple.
The Island Experience
If you’re craving a getaway that’ll sooth your mind as well as your body, then this might be what you’ve been dreaming of. Located in Ilha Grande, 100 miles away from Rio de Janiero, it appears like something out of a tropical fantasy – with glittering azure waters, untainted beaches and the verdant backdrop of the Atlantic Rainforest. Featuring an eco-lodge and boutique retreat which combine holistic yoga practices, soothing massages and a chance to explore the beautiful natural scenery of the Brazilian wildlife, you will come away feeling relaxed, centred and refreshed – and in the perfect state of mind to tackle any of life’s challenges – that is, if you bring yourself to leave!
