Located on the beautiful beach of Jericoacoara and overlooking the waters of Ceará, is the contemporary Essenza Hotel.

Will and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

This trendy boutique boasts 30 suites, all of which overlook the sea and the Dune Por Do Sol. The design is simple with a decor of muted tones encouraging tranquil contemplation during ones stay. The wow factor, however, is the Essenza Cult rooms each feature their own plunge pools, which whilst bathing you can also soak up the sight of flights of kite surfers and orangey Brazilian sunsets.

When it comes to wining and dining Brazilians have an unparalleled reputation; cue Essenza' swim up bar for an ice cold caipirinha or the Essenza Bistro and Osteria which serve a varied menu of creative local and international dishes in a, lets face it, pretty romantic al fresco beach view setting.

The peaceful beach side location invites guests to really kick back and relax, as does the Spa, which offers all sorts of rejuvenating and indulging treatments, as well as boasting facilities such as a Turkish and Finnish bath.

However, should you fancy venturing out of the hotel - Jeri is famed for its wonderfully laid-back bohemian-chic sea-side village feel. People roam its sandy roads sampling the chilled out bars and restaurants for a glimpse of live music or a taste of the catch of the day. Fitness aficionados are attracted to the range of activities from traditional capoeira to surfing and yoga. Quirky boutiques lace the streets and some craft shops are even open until late night.

Why we love it

This hotel is definitely the most manicured of hotels in the Jeri area and perfect for travelers who like their creature comforts.
