Fazenda Santa Esmeralda
Immerse yourself in nature when you stay on the banks of the crystalline Formosa River in an elegantly constructed eco hotel, surrounded by forests.
Fazenda Santa Esmeralda Highlights
The Santa Esmeralda Hotel sits comfortably on the banks of the crystalline Formosa River, otherwise known as the “natural aquarium”of the area. The Esmeralda is enviably located in beautiful Bonito, one of the most important ecotourism destinations in the world. The beauty of the area is unsurpassed and the natural landscapes offers crystal clear river waters teeming with fish, waterfalls, caves, caverns and a unique sinkhole.
Elegantly constructed on an ecological paradise just 20 km outside of the eco-hub of Bonito, it goes without saying that the hotel is built in a prime location. A forest of trees surrounds the hotel and all eco-bungalows are interconnected via meandering pathways. A shimmering blue pool is cocooned by wooden decking, and comes fully kitted out with deck chairs and sun loungers. A place of relaxation at the river.
In total there are 19 suites in the hotel, each equipped with LCD TVs, air-conditioning, hair dryers and minibars. The suites are eco bungalows each with their own terraces. Whether you're in the main area of the hotel, or in your bungalow, the hotel provides full contact with nature. Even the wooden designs and decor seem to be an extension of nature. Santa Esmeralda Hotel is a completely immersive experience.
