The latest project to be announced, with a setting that offers exceptional natural beauty and out-of-the-ordinary guest experiences, is Six Senses Formosa Bay in Brazil.

 

FormosaBay 

 

Located at Baia Formosa, which translates to Beautiful Bay, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, it is the most eastern territory of Brazil and the country’s closest point to Europe. The extraordinary site, which is a part of the Eco Estrela Project, features almost 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) of Atlantic Ocean beachfront and covers an area of 6,350 acres (2,570 hectares). It was home to a former coconut plantation which shared the land with prolific mangroves through which guests can navigate by boat. Ongoing development of additional freshwater canals and lakes will enhance the experience and also provide opportunities for a raft of water activities.

With expert instructors always on hand to provide guidance and ensure safety, guests at the Carillon are always in good hands.
