At the Txai Resort on Brazil's Bahia Coast, travelers wake up, look out at the sea, and smile, knowing they're about to start another day in paradise. Here bungalows are built on stilts, with wraparound decks so you can enjoy every bit of the view. With sofas for reading, an outdoor shower, and an open-air bed (some bungalows have pools or outdoor whirlpool baths), you may never want to leave.
But you're on the Bahia Coast, after all, so head out and explore the Rio de Contas by sail canoe, take a city tour of Itacare, or become more Brazilian and take Capoeira lessons. But if you just want to chill, there are six swimming pools, as well as a spa and wellness classes.
Concerned about the environment? Txai has design and reforestation programs in place to minimize ecological impact. Bring the family along and hike through the rainforest, or watch baby turtles make their way to the sea - an experience everyone will remember forever.
