Vila Kalango is a chic shack situated on the wide and sweeping beach of the relaxed town of Jericoacoara and is the perfect spot to hone the kitesurfing and windsurfing skills.
The property is nestled in the heart of a 5000-sq-metre garden, under the shade of various coconut and cashew trees, so whether you are a water sport enthusiast or yoga bunny - this Brazilian escape is the antidote to daily stresses.
Comfort, rustic charm, and friendly service make Vila Kalango a quaint retreat in "Jeri". The hotel's rooms range from Palafita stilt houses, to bungalows, and apartments. With sustainability at their core, the hotel has been artfully created with the local environment in mind: locally abundant materials such as coconut shells, carnauba straw and moracatiara timber have been used to build the walls, roof and flooring, so that all rooms are able to benefit from the ocean breeze and harmoniously blend into the surrounding landscape. This rustic décor promotes a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
Additionally there is a charming red (yes red) swimming pool with panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean, a massage gazebo, a lounging area furnished with hammocks and sofas, a beauty salon, a Brazilian cuisine restaurant and a club house equipped with windsurfing and kite-surfing gear. Along with all these fantastic facilities, there is a beach only a few meters away to enjoy during the day and with the close proximity of 'Jeri' there is a range of laid back yet buzzing nightlife to explore during the evening.
Why we love it
Vila Kalango overlooks the most renowned sand dune in Brazil "Duna do Por do Sol", which bears witness to the best sunsets in Northeast Brazil, which is further complimented with a "cerveja" in hand each evening.
