Location: Convento Arcádia is a small boutique hotel located in the charming village of Atins, in the state of Maranhao, Brazil. This is one of the gateways to Lencois Maranhenses National Park.
How to get here: There are two options:
Fly to Sao Luis (SLZ). Here you have to take a land transfer till Barreirinhas, and then a boat transfer on Rio Preguicas till Cabure, followed by another boat crossing to Atins. Distances are long and an overnight in Barreirinhas would be needed to break the journey.
Fly to Jijoca (JJD) or to Fortaleza (FOR). Coming from the other side takes a longer time and also requires at least one overnight in Parnaiba or Barra Grande, to break the journey. Then you would continue by road to Tutoia and Cabure, followed by a boat crossing to Atins.
Structure: Convento Arcádia is placed among coconut palms and cashew trees, tastefully decorated. The architecture was developed in harmony with nature and has a welcoming atmosphere. The 8 chalets are wonderfully appointed and have all the basic amenities. They are spacious and all have en-suite bathrooms. En-suite bathrooms, mini-bar, safe deposit boxes and ventilators are the basic features provided. The inn is a true home away from home! In less than 100 m you will find yourselves at the beach or the nearest restaurant.
Why staying here: After a day of kite surfing through the flat waters or the Lençóis Maranhenses, take advantage of the spa treatments or lounge around in the swimming pool with a favourite cocktail! For Yogis, there is a 90sqm deck, and you can make use of various yoga equipment which include mats, blocks and belts. The platform is enclosed in a grove of cashew trees and looks out into a tropical garden, creating a soothing and tranquil environment. The months of January, June to September and December, are particularly suited for yoga, as the trade winds aren’t blowing too strong to distract practicing. Pamper yourself in the spa with wellness treatments that will ease away the sore muscles after a day of adventure in Atins. Choose from a range of treatments like facial cleansing, body scrub, body lymphatic drainage and sports massage.
