If you fancy heading to Brazil this year, but don’t fancy the Football-Mania of the FIFA World Cup, there is one very special please where you can escape to on Bahia’s Coconut Coast and that is Costa do Sauipe.
A purpose-built resort sitting approximately 70 kilometres from Salvador, Costa do Sauipe boasts six luxury hotels, a championship golf course, and six kilometres of unspoilt Bahian Coastline where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy the year-round temperatures that rarely fall below 24° degrees.
While Costa do Sauipe was created for tourism, don’t let that put you off. The resort has much to offer singles, couples, families and groups, and it is in a great location for those who want to combine the Samba of Salvador with a round of golf and some sun worshipping on one of Brazil’s best beaches.
When we stayed in Costa do Sauipe, the hotels were owned by major chains such as Marriott’s and Sofitel, but today, they all fall under the ‘Sauipe Umbrella’ and you can choose your accommodation to suit your budget and the type of holiday you are looking for.
We combined our stay at Sauipe with a three-night stay in Imbassai at the beautiful Luar da Praia Pousada. Rustic, charming and right on the beach, this beautiful seaside hotel is perfect for those who want to visit the ‘real’ Brazil, and while it doesn’t have the glitz and glamour of Costa do Sauipe, it more than makes it for it in friendliness, location and Brazilian hospitality!
Brazil’s Coconut Coast certainly lives up to its name, and if you are looking for a ‘Bountiful’ Brazilian Adventure, this could be the perfect spot for your 2014 holiday.
