Experience rhythm, culture, beaches, mouth-watering cuisine and colonial architecture on a luxury holiday to Brazil.

Why travel to Brazil

Pulsating with energy, optimism and a sense of fun, Brazil’s exoticism is powerfully seductive. Its huge size gives it the variety of a continent, rather than a country: from the stunning colonial architecture of Minas Gerais and Bahia to the cities that ring with music and dance, such as Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.
There is no doubt that luxury holidays in Brazil will make you feel inspired. The wide-open beaches of the north-east contrast with the peaceful bays and fishing villages near Rio; and the wonders of the Amazon Basin contrast with the remote beauty of the Pantanal. There are world-class hotels in Rio and Sao Paulo and stylish private beach houses in Angra, Paraty and Bahia; simple pousadas in the interior and authentic, working fazendas in the Chapada Diamantina. We tend to work with the smaller and most character-filled properties that best reflect the mood and style of their surroundings.

In the Amazon, we favour smaller camps, in order to gain access to primary forest – and for small groups, we can charter private river boats, which can explore incredible virgin beaches for luxury family unlike any other. Brazil’s size and variety make it difficult to get right without insider knowledge and our Destination Experts will guide you as to how much is manageable and exactly what to expect from the extraordinary variety of choices.

SUSTAINABILITY

We believe travel is precious

The world has transformed dramatically since cazenove+loyd was founded in 1993. On every trip we take, we wonder how that destination will look in another 30 years. We are passionate about our destinations and understand that it has become more important than ever to conserve their wildlife, habitats and communities for future generations.

Our highlights in Brazil

Our Destination Expert’s top tip

For wildlife, head to the Pantanal between May and October instead of the Amazon.
