A tropical Brazilian beachfront is the last place one might expect to find an Asian-themed luxury hideaway, but this is what greets guests at Zorah Beach Hotel in the stunning locale of Guajiru Beach, roughly 2 hours from Fortaleza. Located on the sleepy shores of Brazil’s north east coast, Zorah Beach Hotel offers the perfect slice of paradise on a beach which is deserted save for a few kitesurfers. This luxury hotel offers guests a choice of 22 different luxury accommodations which range from spacious Suites, to roomy Bungalows plus an exclusive waterfront Villa. All rooms boast L’Occitane amenities, flat-screen TVs and Super King size beds. The Asian influence at Zorah Beach Hotel also extends to the restaurant, where a unique slant on Asian cuisine crafted from the finest local ingredients is delivered. For something a little less formal, Zorah’s Beach Bar offers a-la-carte drinks and seafood in a poolside setting, perfect for observing a spectacular sunset or two. Laid back relaxation is the order of the day at Zorah Beach Hotel and the large outdoor swimming pool presents the perfect forum to unwind or catch up on the latest novel. The beach is often deserted but the sea is regularly a hive of activity as Guariju is considered as one of the world’s leading kitesurfing destinations. Should you wish to try your hand at kitesurfing then the hotel can arrange lessons and board hire.
These days are free for you to relax on the beach or in pool or perhaps view the local fishermen heading out to sea and bringing back their catch. Guajiru is also a fabulous spot to enjoy kitesurfing or simply watch the kitesurfers as they make their way along the coast from beach to beach, following the winds.
