This glamping property as only two bamboo buildings (the bungalow with two guest suites and the main lodge with social area), on a property of 2,600 meters squared on a forested dune. The sophisticated and airy construction of bamboo, artisanal finishes and artistic details, integrate with the peaceful surroundings to create a "Zen" atmosphere for the guests.
The main lodge offers a cozy social area with:
- veranda with a wide ocean view and steady breezes, ideal for conversations, relaxation or enjoying guests' preferred beverage to the sound of excellent music
- lounge with small library
- dining area with the charm of a fogão à lenha (traditional Brazilian wood stove) and open kitchen
The Brazilian café-da-manhã (breakfast) combines a variety of "café mineiro" (Minas cheeses and breads), fresh fruits and blended juices, homemade jam, granola with natural yogurt, coffee and cappuchino -- all prepared by the host and served at the hour guests request.
Location + Surroundings
Praia do Sagi has a population of about 700, centered around the village church. Fishing and subsistance farming remain the traditional vocations. The restaurants Ombak and O Nativo serve excellent foods. The villagers rise early and accomplish much of their activities before the tropical sun gains strength. Socializing picks up at the day's end -- men gather for a cerveja and the young folks reclaim the beach after the day tourists have departed, surfing and playing beach volleyball. As early as they rise, the village seems to go to sleep early, too. One doesn't come to Sagi for the night-life. Read More
Rio Sagi: The river at the northern edge of the village is not large, but it is integral to village life, and to Sabambugi, as well. The cool fresh water crossing pristine sand invites everyone to bathe in its refreshing shallows. No need for a chlorinated pool at Sabambugi, when nature has provided beautiful alternatives.
Rio Guajú: It's a 3km stroll along the beach -- or a run, if so inclined -- from the village to the river. Men from the village attend their boats to take visitors on a river tour. Poling the boat up through the natural landscape, they show guests mangroves and river crabs. If glampers like, they can take a mud bath -- the locals believe the river bank mud has therapeutic value.
Local youths enjoy sand boarding (skibunda!) from the sand dune on the opposite shore, and are happy to let glampers have a turn or two (gratuity appreciated).
