The coconut groves, beaches, colorful cliffs, ocean pools and mangroves of Barra de São Miguel - located less than 22 miles south of Maceió - are the backdrop for Keona Resort in eco-luxury travel in Brazil.
Opened in December 2009, the resort aims at providing guests with an intimate, eco-chic travel experience. Kenoa has only 23 guest rooms, several of them with their own small swimming pools. Solar energy for all the water heating, the reforestation of native vegetation, and the use of natural materials in the design are some of the eco-friendly practices associated with the updated comforts made available to guests.
Brazilian architect Osvaldo Tenório favored rustic, natural materials in the rooms and common areas; among noble materials used in the resort are stones from Bali in the infinity edge pool.
Tranquility and privacy, ensured by the design and discreet service team, are high priorities at Kenoa Resort, making it a great choice for honeymoons and romantic travel on Brazilian Northeast beaches. However, the resort also accepts children.
