The feeling that reigns in this part of the Atlantic Forest located on the Cacao Coast, classified a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is truly priceless. Here you can observe a huge variety of plants and follow the trails that lead to the Itacarezinho beach, a demonstration of the socio-environmental work of the Txaitaruga environmental preservation project, in which biologists, agronomists and turtle specialists monitor the beach, recording egg-laying and births. Every time the little ones find themselves trapped in their nests, guests are invited to attend the release of the baby turtles; we have the opportunity to watch them head towards the sea, crossing the waves until they disappear into the ocean.
Fish served in the beachfront restaurant, sand between your toes, topped off with an excellent South American wine, is a pure delight. The juiciness, flavour and mix of flavours combined with the beauty and tranquillity of the surroundings create a cocktail that nourishes the body and soul. When the chef asks me if everything is OK, I ask how the dish was prepared: he explains that the key lies in the freshness of the fish, supplied by the Itacaré fishermen's colony, and that the preparation is the "chef's secret", before offering me a caipirinha with flavours of Bahia.
A light breeze blows like a gentle caress on the way to the massage room, with its panoramic views of the Shamash. This therapeutic experience begins the ritual of massage, oils and perfumes, masterfully taking care of the whole body. This disconnection and relaxation have a regenerative effect. Then, to return to reality, I look at the heated infinity pool, and I contemplate the sea in the late afternoon. The aroma of the teas prepared with herbs from the organic crop in our herb garden, closes this chapter, unique in all respects.
