Located on the beautiful beach of Barra de São Miguel and next to a nature reserve, Kenoa’s ethos is based around the beauty of nature.
The resort architect, Osvaldo Tenório excels in creating perfect harmony of high levels of comfort and luxury with respect and inspiration through his ecological design. One of the most unique features are the rainforest Eucalyptus tree trunks that are placed throughout the hotel.
Each of the 23 villas at Kenoa Resort are inspired by the local environment, large glass windows flood rooms with light, local stone and wood are used to create a unity with the space. The interior design and furnishings are sourced globally, from Africa to the Amazon.
