Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas is to make both its South American and Brazilian debut with the announcement of a development completing in 2025.
The luxury brand will launch the Anantara Mamucabo Bahia Resort in Baixio, a district on the northern coastline of Bahia in eastern Brazil.
The resort will be spread across a 500,000 sq m site, with construction slated to begin in 2023.
Anantara Mamucabo will offer a total of 116 guestrooms, suites and pool villas, with sizes varying from 70 to 163 sq m. The resort’s innovative and unique architecture and interior decoration is being designed by Sidney Quintela Architecture + Urban Planning, with landscaping by Alex Hanazaki.
Leisure areas will be distributed throughout the vast grounds and will include three restaurants, two outdoor swimming pools, a beach club and water sports area, a kids club and an area for babies and infants. The main pool will feature a multi-level ‘waterfall’ design, creating different environments for relaxing and enjoying the pool and water.
Inside the beach club, a restaurant and a bar will serve regional cuisine from Bahia, while the hotel’s main restaurant will offer contemporary international and Brazilian cuisine with a view overlooking the entire grounds. An Asian restaurant will be located in the central area of the resort that will boast a picturesque view of the Mamucabo River, from which the resort gets its name.
Exercise and enjoyment
Additional facilities at the resort will include a substantial sports area, including both a tennis court and a paddle tennis court, a well-equipped fitness centre, a yoga terrace and a relaxation area. Children’s entertainment will be provided by a kids’ club including an exclusive playful space in a large green and wooded area.
With its design complementing the tranquil character of the local area, the resort will feature an Anantara Spa focused on both body and mental health, offering an extensive range of treatments and wellness offerings. Integrated and isolated environments, such as a swimming pool, massage rooms, a sauna and a hydrotherapy circuit, will promote total relaxation. For corporate and social events, adaptable spaces with state-of-the-art facilities will allow for various sizes of meetings.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, Anantara’s parent company, and group CEO Minor International, commented: “We are excited to announce the development of this future Anantara in Brazil, which will represent the brand’s debut on the South American continent.
