Location: Refugio na Serra is located in Mucuge, in the heart of Chapada Diamantina, Brazil, combining a bucolic style and refinement. Mucugê is one of the bases to visit the impressive natural attractions of Chapada Diamantina, one of the main ecotourism destinations in Brazil. A region dominated by the caatinga, the only biome exclusively Brazilian, has breathtaking landscapes, such as the plateaus of Pai Inácio Hill and Pati Valley, huge waterfalls, caves with turquoise lagoons, and historic cities from the late 19th century.
How to get here: Fly to Salvador (SSA) or to Lecois (LEC) in Bahia and take a road transfer to Mucuge (2 hours from Lencois airport or 9 hours from Salvador airport).
Structure: The boutique hotel has 12 rooms with high ceilings, made in a chalet style, with large glass areas that allow to enjoy the view of the mountains. The suites are comfortable, offering an invigorating rest after a day of adventure in the region. The welcoming common spaces encourage a day of contemplation and relaxation, in the midst of an exquisite garden, in addition to relaxing therapies and an exclusive and charming hospitality service.
Why staying here: The best hotel to stay when hiking to Cachoeira do Fumacinha and Cachoeira do Buracao, both being around 2,5 hours away. There is so much to see and do, it is simply impossible to list it all! The surrounding scenery has impressive canyons, valleys, waterfalls, caves and table-mountains – some just steps away, and some a little further away.
