Fodor's Review

Located on a nature reserve between Ilhéus and Itacaré (30 minutes from Ilhéus), this design-focused lodge offers spacious, minimalist wooden cabins that open directly onto the beach. Owned by German-born artist Thilo Scheuermann and his Brazilian wife, the aesthetic matches sleek minimalism with dramatic contemporary artwork and stunning natural surroundings—a welcome change from Bahia's endless "rustic-chic." A great choice for couples, or those looking to do little

but read books and drift between the pool, deserted beach, and spa, before candlelit dinners of fresh seafood. The hotel can arrange a variety of local excursions, from whale-watching to visiting a Cocoa plantation.
