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. No element of the experience has been ignored, textures, aromas and essences have all been considered to ensure the most luxurious stay. Most villas offer a king-sized bed, interior gardens, traditional Japanese ofuro tubs, wine cellars and infinity pools Both larger and smaller villa options are available.

Twin chemical free infinity pools line the pool beach area, with beach showers, comfortable pool loungers as well as a drink, sushi and snack service.  For those feeling more adventurous you can choose from a variety of activities including, snorkelling, diving, fishing as well as canoeing and surf lessons.
