Brazil is a huge and exuberant country. In the state of Rio Grande do Sul are the canyons of Cambará do Sul with cracks and walls so impressive that you feel small. From time to time the streams that flow over the plateau plunge into unbelievable waterfalls. Of course, this movie set has already been part of many productions, among them the miniseries Casa das Sete Mulheres. That is when this treasure was revealed.
As if the grandeur of the canyons were not enough, Cambará do Sul also drew attention when implementing the first “glamping” (glamour + camping) style hotel in Brazil: the Parador! That now innovates once again bringing accommodations in the shape of a cocoon for you to live an ultra exclusive experience. Staying for a few days in the Parador to get to know the canyons is a more than perfect marriage.
The architectural project is very bold, with a unique design, totally integrated with nature, and full of charm. It took two years to be implemented. It has contemporary lines and values the elements of the region. Which is fantastic. In all, there are seven cocoons that were named after native bee species – such as Mandaçaia and Guaraipo – since they store honey wrapped in a wax that resembles this shape. The tents were built with reforestation wood worked in curves, an added challenge. The result is enchanting.
The cocoons have a capacity for 2 people, are 24 square meters, have a private deck with a Jacuzzi, an ecological fireplace, thermal sheets, amenities by L’Occitane, and lots of pampering and comfort.
Another highlight is the gastronomy. The Alma RS restaurant values the gaucho traditions and brings the best of each season with fresh ingredients. Twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, a barbecue prepared over a ground fire is served. On Sundays, lunch is country-style.
The Parador organizes all tours for guests such as visits to the National Parks, horseback riding, bicycle, helicopter and even balloon flights.
If you want a place isolated in Brazil, exuberant, where you can connect with nature, a remarkable hotel and great food, you have just found it. I recommend Parador. Don’t miss it. It is magical!
XoXo and see you next week.
