This chic yet bohemian boutique hotel sits in a beautiful beach side location near the historic fishing village of Trancoso and its authentic Brazilian atmosphere is apparent, and amplified, through the use of open spaces, outdoor lounges and colourful decor.
There are currently eight suites at Tutabel all of which boast luxury king sized beds, a private patio and offer views out over either the Atlantic Ocean or the surrounding lush vegetation.
Guest can enjoy dining (indoor or out) on Chef Bertrand Matene's Brazilian cuisine or, alternatively, gourmet picnics can be arranged for those wanting to explore the Natural Reserve of Rio with a snack in hand!
Facilities at Tutabel include an ocean front swimming pool, games room and a modern spa boasting a sauna, hot tub and massage room. If you plan on spending the morning indulging in pampering treatments (why wouldn't you?) then the free kids club will be music to your ears - drop the tots off and relax!
There's an abundance of activities in and around Tutabel to keep everyone entertained too. For the fauna and flora seekers there are walking and bike trails through the nearby Nature Reserve, for the water babies kayak rentals could see you exploring the Transoco River and the culture vultures should enjoy the lively streets and charming villas of Trancoso village.
Why we love it
All walks through the Nature Reserve are accompanied by a guide who provides ice cold water and cool towels to keep guests refreshed as they explore.
