Refúgio dos Falcões
Hidden away among luxuriant Atlantic forest, the Refúgio dos Falcões is an ideal place to immerse oneself in the beauty of nature and indulge in natural spa treatments that restore the body to health and vitality. The hotel is set on 75 forested acres inhabited by native tiriba birds and crisscrossed with hiking trails of varying lengths and levels of difficulty. There is an outdoor swimming pool heated with solar power, a natural spring water pool, a steam room, Jacuzzi, hydrowall and cozy guest lounge with a fireplace. The spa is staffed with certified professionals who provide nutrition advice, skin treatments, hair styling, manicures, hot stone massages, yoga, tai-chi, reflexology and many more therapeutic services. There is a terrace with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and an octagonal movie room with panoramic windows and bean bag chairs for curling up and relaxing on in the evening. The movie room also doubles as a conference, meditation and yoga room. The guest rooms, meanwhile, are elegant retreats with rustic wooden furniture and high-pressure showers, pure cotton sheets, goose down pillows, minibars and flat screen TVs with cable and HBO. All of the guest rooms have views of either the forest or the gardens and are serenaded by birdsong.
