Costa do Sauipe, a group of resorts opened in 2000, spreads over an attractive stretch of Bahia's Coconut Coast (Costa dos Coqueiros, or the Coconut Tree Coast), about 48 miles north of Salvador.
There are six hotels on this part of the coast, all managed by Sauípe S.A. One of them is the Sauipe Club, formerly Breezes.
In 2010, Costa do Sauipe celebrated its 10th anniversary with a relaunch which encompassed a redefinition of its identity, a new kids' area, and upgraded entertainment venues. The relaunch aimed at a more more precise focus on guest profile in Brazil's growing resort market. A unique offering for each type of guest was created in each resort.
Previ, the only Costa do Sauipe shareholder, invested approximately R$30 million (over US$ 18 million) in the renovation of the resorts and common areas, expansion of the restaurants, creation of new leisure areas, training and advertising.
2013, when Costa do Sauipe will host the Final Draw for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, has seen an array of new improvements, including the building of the R$14-million Arena Sauipe, with a capacity for an audience of 3,500 (seated) or 6,000 (standing). The arena can be used to boost corporate events in the low season.
Another R$15 million have been invested in structure, including renovations of all pools and upgrades in guest rooms.
A 43,000-square-foot area with enough space for up to 800 kids ages 4 to 12 (divided into monitored groups ages 4-7 and 8-12), Sauipe Kids is open all day, every day. The area is open to kids staying in all the Costa do Sauipe resorts.
