Casa dos Arandis is a boutique retreat on the idyllic Atlantic Coast of Brazil. This family-owned escape rests on a sun-kissed peninsula of uncrowded beaches, coral pools, freshwater ponds, palm forests, and mangrove habitat. The Marau Peninsula is a prized location–between the Dende Coast and Coast Cocoa–an open secret among surfers and sun seekers. This is one of those locations–so disproportionately common to Brazil–where every soul is blessed with magazine-cover charisma and easy grace.
Marau is most easily reach by flights to Ilheaus or Salvador, with the final part of the journey by charter helicopter or SUV. The landscape here changes with the cycles of tide and season. Prime season is from October to March, but you can enjoy sun and surf here year round.
Amenities & Services
Guests at Casa dos Arandis can enjoy the on-property restaurant, bar, spa, pool, jetted tub, sauna, steam room, massage and yoga rooms, and a fitness space. Sun loungers are provided at the beach, and bar service can be dispatched efficiently via handheld radio.
The restaurant uses a traditional wood-fired oven. The menu is updated seasonally, and highlights the fresh and the local. Sunday nights are for pizza and stars, but you can convince Claudio to make you some on most evenings after his surf session. Snacks, regional fruit juices, and Brazilian cocktails are available on demand.
