Location: Barracuda Beach Hotel & Villas is an ultra-luxury hotel and villas nestled inside Condomínio Villas do Resende surrounded by a lush tropical forest in Itacare, in the south of Bahia, Brazil.
How to get here: The nearest airport is located in Ilhéus, 70 km from Itacaré. The road from the airport to the hotel is beautiful and the journey takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. From Salvador the trip is longer, and the road is not as good. There is also a heliport.
Structure: The 17 suites are in two adjoining buildings. One building consists of the restaurant, an infinity pool surrounded by sun loungers, a poolside bar, a comfortable social area on the ground floor and 5 suites on the first floor. The other 12 suites are in the adjoining part of the hotel connected by a wooden deck. All the suites have a balcony with seating and a view of the ocean and the rainforest. The luxury houses provide a complete experience of well-being and privacy. Each villa has from 4 to 8 suites, decks, swimming pool, central bungalow with social area and kitchen, private suites, and external gourmet area.
Why staying here: If you are looking for a relaxing high-end beach break – this is one of the nicest hotels on the entire coast of Bahia. Moreover, Itacaré, once a simple fishing village, has become one of the best destinations for nature lovers, surfing and people seeking unexplored places and spectacular beaches. Bahia’s spontaneous, vibrant yet simple lifestyle is still well preserved. Year-round surfing and warm waters are the highlights of Itacaré. September to December and March to June are the best months to surfing in this region. We can organize surf lessons on request.
