Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will soon debut its authentic luxury in Brazil with the launch of Anantara Maraú Bahia Resort in mid 2018. The resort will offer an exciting new gateway to South America when it joins the brand’s luxury portfolio in July, following an investment of R$ 4 million in the renovation of the former Kiaroa Eco-Luxury Resort. It will be the first Asian hotel flag to come to Brazil.

Poised to be a flagship hideaway, Anantara Maraú Bahia Resort will boast a beach setting next to the Bay of Camamu on the Maraú Peninsula in Bahia, along a stunning stretch of Atlantic coastline.

Unlike other places, guests of Anantara Maraú will arrive in style, jetting in by plane to the resort’s private landing strip. Dining is also designed by a personal chef and butler. 

Anantara Maraú will initially offer a choice of 30 guest rooms, suites and bungalows. This will be followed by the resort’s expansion which will add new suites and bungalows in beachfront and garden settings, some with a private pool. Bahia’s natural and cultural highlights will offer captivating local experiences, including surfing, paddle boarding, quad biking and horse riding to the Carapitangui River.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotels, parent company of Anantara, commented, “We are really thrilled to be announcing our first Anantara in South America in Bahia in Brazil. The boutique 30-room resort will be the perfect addition to the luxury Anantara portfolio and represents Anantara’s first footprint over the Atlantic Ocean as the first property in the Americas. We are excited to see this property launch in mid 2018 and bring the brand’s authentic luxury to Brazil.”

Anantara currently operates 39 hotels and resorts in 13 countries in Asia, the Indian Ocean, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, with new properties to launch in 2018 in Brazil, Tunisia, Vietnam and China.
