Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do ForteBahia, Brazil
Luxuriate in the harmony of eco-friendly Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte, a Brazilian member of prestigious Preferred Hotels & Resorts. This stunning resort is located north of Salvador in the Bahia region of Brazil, is known for its exotic touches, breathtaking scenery and endless tranquility. Chic guestrooms, housed in low-slung buildings and crowned with thatched roofs, have minimalist and uncluttered design. Warm-wood finishes, cool tile floors, and freestanding tubs add more than a hint of style. Views of swaying palm trees, lush green landscapes, and brilliant Brazilian sunshine spill in through wide windows. Spend a lazy afternoon napping atop a hammock on your private balcony.
The Thalasso Spa boasts an extensive menu of holistic and pampering treatments. Thalassotherapy is one of the oldest and most effective ways to relieve stress, and detoxifies and hydrates the body. Treatments using wine, milk and coconut water add an exotic flair to an afternoon of relaxation. Dining at Tivoli takes you on a culinary sojourn with sustainable ingredients and exotic flavors enjoyed in three restaurants. The beachfront bar puts you in a deeper, more relaxed state. Stress evaporates as you linger poolside at one of eight swimming pools. If you want to stay on task with your workout regimen, the resort offers pilates, yoga, and a fitness facility to use at your leisure. A nearby turtle reserve has helped to bring these creatures back from the brink of extinction. You will find them swimming in natural pools and coming ashore to lay their eggs in the fall. It is no surprise that everyone—and everything—coexists gleefully at Tivoli.
