Come stay with us, let the Brazilian sun warm your body and our loving dogs warm your heart! . Here, at Bela Natureza we believe in the gentle healing power of nature and animals. We welcome you to stay with us to recharge your batteries, and harmonize with nature and our family of dogs. Our dream is that more and more people come to know this powerful, unique love. The area of the retreat Bela Natureza is large, and provides guests with countless opportunities to roam around, be at one with nature, collect mangoes, meditate, and even do yoga or light sports. . DOUBLE ROOM SUITE WITH PRIVATE TERRACE: For our guests we offer rental of a newly-restored double room suite with private terrace, named after a local singing bird Rió ('Curió'). The suite is equipped with modern facilities and internet access, making it suitable for those wishing to engage in creative pursuits such as taking a sabbatical, writing or painting. . Our double suite is located at the ground floor of our house. It has its own entrance, and a private terrace, where our guests can relax. The room is cozy; and comfortably accommodates 3 people, while it can be suitable for a family with two children as well, or a group of friends (up to 5 people). It is equipped with a double sofa bed, a single bed, a small couch, a coffee table, and two hammocks, which can be unfolded any time. Our room features a spacious private bathroom with a warm shower and a walk-in closet designed and made by local artisans. Wifi is available throughout, and there are plenty of accessible sockets for charging electrical appliances. . For all our guests, we prepare and offer complimentary continental breakfast with tasty regional goodies and tropical fruit. Moreover, all guests are welcome to use the refreshment area located at the site, and all common areas of the retreat, such as the swimming pool, meditation pavilion or hammocks amongst the mango trees. You will have the use of these spaces for most of the day, however, the holistic center occasionally runs healing courses or eco-workshops at which times some of them will be occupied. . Free parking is available at the property for our guests. Please let us know, if you are arriving by car. . Our guests will have the unique opportunity to interact with our many friendly and healthy dogs. The dogs are a great source of affection, relaxation and healing. They are an integral part of the retreat, and we hope that guests will be happy to spend time with them. We’re sure their doggy bliss will rub off on you! We would like to ensure a completely stress-free stay for the guests. The retreat area is vast, and being here feels like visiting a natural park with friendly dogs, mango trees, wild flowers, and pineapple plants. Sometimes you could spot little monkeys called “miquinhos”, and other small lively creatures. Guests will be able to feel comfortable and at ease, as the large natural area is only shared with our small team and a few other guests (up to 6 people). . The external refreshment area is surrounded by nature, and equipped with a microwave, a traditional clay oven, and a coffeemaker. A well-maintained swimming pool provides a soothing feel on a warm day. . Guests have a private entrance to the property, and the room can be securely locked. . Free wireless internet access is provided throughout the area. Sometimes the official internet provider is not working, in which case you can go to a nearby internet café in Arembepe. Some of these also have printers, scanners, and fax machines in addition to broadband internet service. My name is Evelyn. I was born in Germany and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have degrees in communication, arts, and environmental studies, and have lectured in these areas whilst in both countries. I live in my house at the retreat, and I am on-hand to provide assistance, if required. . I am also a certified tour guide for the state of Bahia, and can give you important tips about the region and its unique culture, including the city of Salvador. Furthermore, if you are interested in history, the environment and the local culture or the afro-brazilian religion ‘Candomblé’, I would be glad to share my knowledge with you, as well as the top places to enjoy local cuisine and the attractions you might like to visit. To know more, please check out my personal guide to Arembepe and Bahia. Our retreat Bela Natureza is situated in a secure condominium inside the small rural community of Coqueiro de Arembepe, rich in lush greenery, flowing with meandering riverside vegetation, and home to wild birds and small monkeys. The atmosphere here is friendly, and the dappled forests surrounding the village are perfect for long relaxing walks to gently unwind. More
