Luxury honeymoon in Bahia state, Brazil's tropical North East by Dehouche Travel

A wonderful Brazilian Honeymoon begins in the stunning Chapada Diamantina National Park. Deep in the interior of Bahia lies a land of underground rivers, cacti and table-top mountains. Breathtaking hikes and mountain-bike trips are contrasted with dips into the many crystal clear streams and pools that are safe to drink from while swimming. The landscape is like something out of Lord of the Rings and the pace of life is easy to relax into. There are underground caves to explore and for the more adventurous, scuba diving deep into the caves is an option as is floating down the underground rivers. Based in a charming colonial village nestling in this unspoilt landscape one can explore this stunning region with a great fun English-speaking guide, Marcio is one of Dehouche Travel’s excellent team on the ground. Despite the small sleepy town being in the middle of nowhere there are some excellent restaurants dotted around, often it is really excellent home-cooking - a favourite recommendation has just 3 tables. Stay in a delightful converted colonial house, which is full of antique furniture and comfortable nooks to relax and unwind in.

Then return to Salvador the vibrant capital city of Bahia, where there’s a lot to do in a couple of days, from watching the impromptu displays of capoeira (the slave's athletic fight/dance routine) to attending Candomble rituals (this is an African religion that has deep roots in Salvador). The itinerary should be planned by Dehouche so that Honeymooners spend a Tuesday night in town, when the samba drums come out en masse – Pelourinho the historic old town turns into a street party with the best Bahian music, food and dance on every street.

Accomodation is quite sublime, set in a quiet side street, but walking distance from the heart of the historic centre and best restaurants. The hotel is a romantic old mansion house that effortlessly combines modern design features with colonial architecture. Suites are large and with four poster beds and boast a terrace that looks out across the famous Bay of all Saints.

A final destination on a perfect Brazilian honeymoon is a truly stunning location where couples can enjoy perfect unspoilt beaches, where palms and white sand meet the warm turquoise water, a genuine unspoilt tropical island paradise. Dehouche provide a speedboat that enables a fabulous day out on the sea an unforgettable journey around the islands, visiting natural swimming pools on sandy outcrops of the reef almost a mile offshore, where floating bars serve fresh fish and wonderful caipirinhas, unwind in the clear turquoise water where little tropical fish can clearly be seen. For lunch visit local character Guido who always has a fresh supply of lobster if one arrives early his family own an open-air restaurant on the beach that is an absolute must visit barbequed lobster and delicious Bahian specialties are to die for. The afternoon can be spent on deserted beaches, or swooshing up the river by speedboat to one of the first colonial towns in Brazil. As the sun sets the speedboat will drop the luck Honeymooners back at their beach front cabana. The team on the concierge on the ground can advise all the best things to see and do from where to see the dolphins playing in the bay as the sun sets, to where to get a view from the top of the island out across the bay and of course all the best restaurants and bars. Honeymooners stay in a wonderfully charming beach cabana right on the beach with an upstairs bedroom affording views straight out to sea, delicious breakfasts are served on the private veranda. This is an idyllic place to relax and forms a wonderful finale to a Brazilian honeymoon.

Let Dehouche arrange your luxury boutique hotel and enjoy a whole host of insider tips on where to truly escape from it all on your honeymoon.
