Kenoa - Exclusive Beach Spa & Resort

Roam calm lagoons, discover deserted Brazilian beaches and stargaze every night

Sitting between the warm ocean and pristine tropical jungle, Kenoa - Exclusive Beach Spa & Resort is the eco-chic jewel in the crown of North-East Brazil. Just nine degrees from the Equator, the temperature here is always balmy and the drinks always cold. Life at Kenoa revolves around the beach, sweeping sea vistas and the sense of privacy and luxury you get as a guest at this boutique resort. 

Rooms with a view come as standard at Kenoa. Huge suites have far-reaching vistas over the green treetops of the neighbouring natural reserve and the coastline – plus Japanese cedar bathtubs on their balconies and rustically beautiful bathrooms. Villas take things up a notch with ocean views and infinity edged private plunge pools made from Balinese stone. A clever use of natural materials continues the luxurious vibe into the resort’s restaurant Kaamo, fronted by well-known chef César Santos. Dine on his original creations as the sun sets over the Atlantic. Then head out to the outdoor lounge and relax on pillows and couches, serenaded by soft beats as the moon rises.

Beyond the beach, Kenoa’s spa has a focus on wellness treatments designed to bring your body in tune with the elements and give your mind respite. If you’re in a more active mood, hop on a speedboat to explore Barra de Sao Miguel and its islands, or glide through lagoons by canoe and taste fresh oysters straight from the water. Get stuck into surfing or kite surfing with instructors arranged by the resort, or dive beneath the waves to discover colourful coral reefs. 

Enjoy your stay!

Responsible luxury

Kenoa takes its eco-chic credentials seriously. All the water in the resort, from private plunge pools to rainforest showers is solar heated, and all lighting is LED. The resort’s unique architecture, designed to maximise privacy and tranquillity, has been crafted from natural stone rather than man-made materials, and landscaped using local plants.
