Anantara will open a new luxury eco-resort in Brazil, marking the hotel group’s foray into South America.
Anantara Mamucabo Bahia Resort is about to launch in Baixo, a region on the northern coast of Bahia, the birthplace of samba and capoeira.
Designed as a haven for nature lovers, the sustainability-focused resort will open with 116 rooms, suites and pool villas that overlook crystal-clear lagoons and lush greenery.
The five-star escape will span 500,000 square meters and feature a design inspired by the surrounding natural beauty on what is one of Brazil’s largest protected sandbars.
Extensive landscaped gardens will house two outdoor swimming pools, a beach club and a watersports area. The main pool will have a tiered waterfall design so guests can choose whether they want to be in a more relaxed space or sunbathe closer to the pool.
Athletes can train on the tennis and padel courts or relax on the yoga terrace and the relaxation area. Children will be well looked after in the Anantara Kids Club which has its own play area set in a large open-air wooded area.
The Anantara Spa will offer a range of treatments delivered in a space evoking the peaceful character of the resort’s small fishing village.
Guests who check in will be able to dine at three restaurants, with regional Bahian cuisine, international dishes, and Brazilian dishes on the menu. A signature Asian restaurant will take center stage and offer fantastic views of the nearby Mamucabo River.
“We are delighted to announce the development of this future Anantara in Brazil, which will represent the debut of the brand on the South American continent. This is a part of the world where we have been keen to expand Anantara’s footprint and this exciting project represents the perfect opportunity,” said Dillip Rajakarier, Managing Director of Minor Hotels, the parent company of Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas.
Construction of the resort is expected to begin next year and guests will be welcome for overnight stays in 2025.
