The first class, utterly luxurious Kenoa Beach Spa and Resort is an intimate boutique property on a gorgeous stretch of northeast Brazil's Atlantic coastline. 

Romantic Kenoa sits on the silken white sands of northeast Brazil’s sunshine coast, south of the unassuming city of Maceio.  It’s a luxurious boutique property where a couple of dozen  suites and villas blend harmoniously with their tropical setting. All of them have a sea view, while in addition the villas have their own infinity plunge pools from which to admire the aquamarine ocean.

You may well be tempted to spend your whole stay on the property itself, enjoying sumptuous breakfasts, discreet but attentive service and superb facilities. There’s a smart gourmet restaurant, chic open-air bar, fitness room, comprehensive spa and oceanfront pool. If you do feel like venturing out, you may wander along the beach to Barra de São Miguel, a laid back little place which comes alive at weekends and  Carnival. 

Maceió is well connected by road and air with the rest of Brazil. Kenoa itself  is only a 40min drive from the airport but a world away from the urban bustle.

What our clients say

  • Most Memorable Moment?: Trip to Mount Corcovado & Sugar Loaf but many memorable moments.

    MB, Bishop's stortford
  • Iguacu Falls were spectacular Rio views as per postcards!!

    JM, Callander
  • Where to start? The World Cup match in Salvador, the old town of Salvador itself, swimming with wild dolphins in Praia de Pipa, watching monkeys play at breakfast, piranha fishing then feeding caimans in the Pantanal, playing football on Copacabana beach, seeing Christ the Redeemer for the first time, dancing in Rio Sanarium, all the Brazilian people we met who were so friendly. The best holiday we have ever been on.

    LM, London
  • Highlight: The wildlife at Mutum - tapir, caimans, anteater, capybara, massive range of birdlife

    DL, London
  • Most memorable experience: "Hard to say it was all wonderful. Looking for alligators in a minute boat in the dark with eyes peering at you from out of the reeds, took a bit of beating. Also the boat whizzing around under the falls was  very special. The guides did a great job and it was great not being in a large group. I can't speak highly enough of the whole trip."

    VM, Shoreham-by-Sea
  • Every day was special and we have many happy memories but probably the highlights were the views from the top of Sugar Loaf, getting up close to waterfalls, swimming in the Rio Negro and whale watching.

    LL, Tonbridge
