To start planning your vacation to Zorah Beach Hotel
Drawing on the natural beauty of Brazil's northeast coast, Zorah Beach Hotel offers relaxation in abundance with lush gardens and luxurious bungalows enveloped by the region's shifting sand dunes and the warm Atlantic waters.
Its location just a couple of hours' drive from Fortaleza makes it the perfect halfway point on the way to or from the uber-cool surf beach of Jericoacoara, which is famed for its kitesurfing. Sharing this same stretch of coastline means that Praia de Guajiru shares the same windy conditions, and the hotel also boasts its own kitesurfing school for those who wish to break up the relaxation with some adventures out on the water.
Accommodation is a collection of 22 suites, bungalows and villas, spread throughout the tropical gardens and set back from the ocean front swimming pool, offering comfort, privacy and all the facilities you may need to help you unwind. All of the rooms have a hot tub and king-size beds.
Dining at Zorah Beach Hotel is all part of the experience, with fresh seafood and delicious local ingredients being used to create a predominantly Asian menu which reflects the feel of Zorah Beach perfectly. A beach bar provides a more casual setting for light snacks and a cooling cocktail, while a tantalising array of Indian can also be enjoyed straight from a Tandoor oven, a rare experience in Brazil.
There are 22 rooms at Zorah Beach Hotel, separated into suites, bungalows and a villa. All of the rooms are spacious and boast a king-size bed, as well as a hot tub, private deck or balcony, luxurious linens and bathroom amenities, Nespresso coffee machines, Sky TV and A/C. WiFi is only available in public areas.
Zorah Beach Hotel boasts its own kitesurfing school, making the most of the ideal weather conditions along this stretch of Brazil's coastline. The wind in this area is constant almost year-round but between July and January offers the most consistent conditions and around 18-35 knots every day. Equipment rental is available, as well as guided tuition for professionals and total beginners.
Dining at Zorah is an Asian-inspired affair, with tandoor specialties and delicious fresh seafood dishes with a contemporary touch. A beach bar is the perfect spot for a refreshing cocktail whilst making the most of the hotel's ocean views.
Apart from the obvious appeal of Zorah's kitesurfing school, activities nearby include excursions out into the surrounding sand dunes which turn to lagoons when the season is right, horseback riding and sandboarding, boat trips, hiking and simply relaxing on the area's many picturesque beaches.
