Minor Hotels to take Anantara brand to South America

25 Jul 2022
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will make its debut both in Brazil and in South America in 2025 and open the all-new Anantara Mamucabo Bahia Resort.

With a modern and sustainable design inspired by its beachfront location, the 116-key property will be located in Baixio – a district on the northern coastline of Bahia – and be spread across a 500,000sq m site.

The resort's architecture and interior decoration are being designed by Sidney Quintela Architecture + Urban Planning, with landscaping by Alex Hanazaki.

Construction on the new-build property will begin in 2023.

With a design that draws inspiration from the coastal location, Anantara Mamucabo will feature a signature Anantara Spa focused on both physical and mental health.

The spa will feature integrated and isolated environments to offer guests a choice of both communal and individual wellness journeys. Visitors will have access to a swimming pool, massage rooms, a sauna and a hydrotherapy circuit.

Additional wellness facilities at the resort will include a substantial sports area, including both a tennis court and a paddle tennis court, a fitness centre, a yoga terrace and a relaxation area.

The remaining leisure areas will be distributed throughout the resort and include three restaurants, two outdoor swimming pools, a beach club and water sports area, a kids club and an area for babies and infants.

The main pool will feature a multi-level waterfall design, creating different environments for relaxing and enjoying the pool and water.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels (parent company to Anantara) and group CEO of Minor International, commented: “We’re excited to announce the development of this future Anantara in Brazil, which will represent the brand’s debut on the South American continent.

“It’s a part of the world we've always been keen to expand Anantara’s footprint into and this exciting project represents the perfect opportunity.”
