Yoga & Beachlife Retreat (Brazil)
We are staying at Vila Barracuda, a small boutique hotel located by the Fisherman’s Bay of Itacaré. A picturesque view where the river meets the sea and
where a unique, welcoming hospitality makes everyone feel at home.
The rooms have air condition, safety box, a fridge and of course a bathroom. Depending on the room 1 to 4 people can share it comfortably. You are welcome to learn more about the different rooms HERE.
In the reception you find a lounge area and always a happy face. If you look to your left you will also find a bar and (most of the time) a bartender who can provide you with a piece of heaven. Healthy choice or mood booster is up to you, we are in Brazil – everything is allowed. Even for yogis!
Your days in Itacaré
If you have a hard time relaxing in between our scheduled activities we have good options for you.
Tell us on spot if you wish to join more yoga classes, sign up for massage, healing, even more surf, vegan food course, ziplining through
the Atlantic rainforest, deep sea fishing, coloring your own scarf from roots hand picked by you from the jungle or if you simply want to learn how to make THE Caipirinha.
Getting settled before enjoying a private welcome dinner around the pool at our hotel.
We head for a full day excursion where we start the day with a yoga class between Cacau-trees. We continue the day with a brief tour around the land of a chocolate farm and make our own chocolate from fresh beans. After having enjoyed a vegetarian lunch at the farm we head to a local lagoon for a refreshingswim. When it is time to head back we get picked up by boat and get to enjoy the magnificent views of the jungle from the sea side. We ancor our boat in the best spot to watch the sunset while pooping a bootle of bubbly and eating some snacks. In the evening we all meet for dinner at our hotel poolside-style.
Full day excursion to the Marau Peninsula and the Fiji-like Islands of the archipelago. We cater our own boat, chill out on different beaches, climb palm trees and stay for a yoga by the beach. We will enjoy the natural pools of Taipu de fora in the best way: snorkeling and freediving with marine biologist and diver Stella Furlan. For lunch we get to enjoy a traditional Bahian dish. In the evening we all meet for dinner at our hotel poolside-style.
After breakfast we head to the best surf school in Itacaré for a surf class at the remote Engenhoca beach. We hike down to the beach through an amazing jungle (about 15 minutes hike) and have a lunch break from the local and picturesque beach hut. Don´t forget to bring your sunscreen!
In the afternoon we meet up for yoga at a breathtaking location: The Barracuda Beach Hotel Roof Top! We will enjoy a light yoga flow to stretch out our surfed out arms while the sun sets in front of us over the sealine. Once we are done with our practice we stay at this beautiful hotel for a VIP dinner overlooking the ocean.
Get your sneakers on because today we are making a proper hike through the jungle with the local "McGiver-ish" guide. The destination of the hike is nothing less then the 5th most beautiful beach of Brazil – Prainha. At the remote beach we enjoy a tasty picknick, do a class of yoga and relax in the sunbefore heading back home. In the evening we all meet for dinner at our hotel poolside-style.
Today we all get to try SUP Yoga with our Retreat Manager Bella as the master. She is a certified instructor and will make sure you all get to work on that balance of yours. Once we are done with yoga-ing and dancing we head to the beach where we will experience a unique cooking experience. Our chefs will prepare a bananaleaf-sealed fish that is grilled inside the sand! While we wait for dinner to get served on the beach we enjoy some wine, a bonfire and some live Ukulele playing in the background.
*The SUP Yoga and samba class can be exchanged to another half-day of surfing.
Enjoying a nice breakfast before it is time for goodbye-hugging and email exchanging with new friends from all over the world.✨
