Insider's View

Be sure, if you are staying June to November, to keep a look out on the horizon, as humpback whales come to these waters to calve.

Tivoli Ecoresort Praia do Forte is set amongst 25,000 m2 of gardens and coconut groves, with miles of beaches, coconut forests, multicolored reefs, natural salt water pools, rivers, waterfalls, lagoons and relics from colonial Brazil. The hotel is a short distance from the center of picturesque Praia do Forte fishing village, which is home to the fascinating Tamar Project set up 20 years ago to save the endangered sea turtle.

250 air-conditioned rooms are spaciously located in two-storey bungalows, each with their own veranda and hammocks overlooking either the tropical gardens or the beautiful beach dotted with palm trees. The hotel is constructed in a style which combines pre-Baroque Jesuit architecture with Polynesian architecture. There are three swimming pools, two floodlit tennis courts, three bars, a restaurant serving local and international cuisine and a nautical center with facilities for windsurfing, kayaking and diving. The resort also offers superb spa facilities, including a selection of different therapies and Thalassotherapy.

Location & Directions

Praia do Forte, Brazil

Only an hour to the north of Salvador, in Bahia, Brazil, the Praia do Forte EcoResort & Thalasso Spa is located in an environmental protection area with a 12-km nearly deserted beach and surrounded by a lush coconut palm plantation.

When to go

As Bahia lies within a tropical zone, it has a warm climate all year round and does not have low winter temperatures, which are typical of temperate climates. However, it rains more during cooler months (May and June) than during hot months (from October to April). Average annual temperature is 28° C.
