Minor Hotels Signs Second Anantara Resort in
Minor Hotels has signed the second
Anantara resort in Brazil.
Scheduled to open in 2026, the new-build Anantara Preá Ceará Resort will be located in the state of Ceará on the
country’s northeast coast.
Soon to start development on Preá Beach in the
municipality of Cruz and close to the well-known tourist
destination of Jericoacoara, the Anantara Preá Ceará Resort will offer
60 guest rooms and villas, 25 branded residential bungalows, some
with private pools, and a 120 sqm Presidential Suite.
To be built
within the high-end Vila Carnaúba real estate development,
Anantara Preá will offer guests access to all Vila Carnaúba’s
amenities, such as the restaurants and bars, sports facilities and
a gym, kids club, a kitesurfing school and a variety of nature
The resort will also be home to
an Anantara Spa which will offer an extensive range of spa
treatments and wellness programmes.
The state of Ceará is well known for its fine sand
dunes and beaches, natural lagoons and mangroves thriving with
nature, with around a third of the state’s territory forming part
of the Jericoacoara National Park, one of the most beautiful spots
in Brazil’s northeast.
The coastline is also well established as
one of the country’s most sought-after destinations for
watersports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and wing foil
The new resort, being developed in partnership
with Grupo Carnaúba, will extend over an area in excess
of 52,000 square metres. The project’s design and decor are being
created by Miguel Pinto Guimarães, a Brazilian architect well
known for his contemporary creations which unite comfort in total
harmony with the natural environment and the beauty of the
surroundings. The landscaping will be developed by Embyá Paisagens
The sustainable and social initiatives of Vila
Carnaúba, which is in the final stages of development, are an
essential element of this partnership. These will include waste
disposal and recycling, reforestation initiatives, replanting of
Carnauba Wax Palm Trees, a fan palm indigenous to northeastern
Brazil, along with supporting local food producers. At night there
will be reduced lighting to preserve the sky’s panorama and to
minimise the impact on the local fauna.
Anantara Preá Ceará Resort will be accessible via
the regional airport of Jericoacoara just 15 minutes’ away, or
transfers can be arranged by car or small plane to Preá from the
state’s main airport in Ceará which is 300 km from the resort.
“In 2022 we announced
our luxury Anantara brand's first hotel in Brazil, with Anantara Mamucabo Bahia Resort scheduled to open in 2025,”
said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels and Group CEO of Minor
International. “We are excited to
follow this with the announcement of a second Anantara in
the country, demonstrating our commitment to expanding our
footprint in Brazil with quality projects focused on preserving
nature and the surrounding landscapes. We look forward to working
closely with Grupo Carnaúba to bring this new Anantara resort to
