Kenoa is very different from most of boutique hotels I've visited. Is fancy but simple at same time, that's why it's hard to describe. Just like being in a rustic cabana with all the contact with the nature it may offer, but with a 5-start hotel service. I've been in good hotels at northern part of country and service was... More

This was the perfect honeymoon experience. After a trip to rio we decided to stay at this hotel to "get away" from the city. We saw the pictures and reviews and decided it was worth the plane flight from rio. We were rewarded with an unbelievable experience one that exceeded our expectations. The five days there we barely left the... More

Although praised by Condenast - this Resort clearly is a total desater! The location and architecture are quite pretty - everything else is far far away from luxury standards. Beachfront rooms have a nice view, but the terrace is in the shade most of the day. The so called "impacable service" does not exist - unfriendly, not helpfull, no one... More

Good Afternoon, first I would like to apologize for any misunderstanding, however I have to point out many incorrect informations in this review. Some are easy to confirm in our website (i.e. the massage price is less than 100USD for a 50 minute massage.) or even the size of our fitness center or the price of our food & beverage... More

Amazing hotel, beautiful polls and delicious food! The hotel is small, and the service is very good. It is a very nice place to go for "honeymoon" trip or weekend. The food was outstanding and really impressed us. Recommend the rooms with a pool in front of the beach!

Nice designed small resort. It is either designed by someone who believes that design is more important than usability or the designer did his first hotel. Nice but not practical. The staff is very friendly, alert and willing to help you. There is only a problem if you don't speak Portugees. Although there is always someone at the facility who... More

This was an amazing experience.. The service is flawless, hotel is set in a stunning location with very very nice design. I was traveling with both an interior designer and a boutique hotel owner and they were both very impressed. This is a perfect experience for couples looking for a relaxing time. It is a bit expensive but it is... More

We just got back from a weekend at Kenoa. Every detail was thought of and looked after. Impeccable service, great drinks and hotel restaurant (we did not leave the hotel). There were 9 rooms (out of ˜23) occupied but we felt the place was to ourselves. They called me the day before our arrival to confirm our travel details, and... More

A beautiful resort which is so exclusive that it doesn't provide a map with directions how to find it, and doesn't have any signposts or advertising to let you know where it is. So after one hour driving around and finally ringing them, we found it. Perhaps a map for people self driving might be useful for the future. The... More

I think this is the best hotel we've ever stayed at! We're experienced travelers, often multiple trips per year with our two (8 and 12 year old) kids to destinations in Europe, Central America, Asia and Africa. We've been traveling in Brazil (our first time) for the past two weeks and are spending our last few days here at Kenoa.... More
