Is this the ideal Brazilian beach we’ve been seeking? Sure is close!
A bit of Christmas cheer on the lunch table
From Porto de Galinhas we continued our journey a few more hours south to Barra de São Miguel in the little Brazilian state of Alagoas. Here we discovered Kenoa, a beach resort so close to perfection that we barely wandered outside of it.
A small boutique-style hotel, Kenoa reeks of style. The architecture is rough and minimalist. The food is the stylish creation of Brazilian celebrity chef Claude Troisgros, known for combining French technique and tropical ingredients. The service was super attentive, yet somehow friendly and relaxed.
Alas, readers, that means this installment has little text. You are just stuck with pictures. And besides the one above that I especially think captures the spirit of this place, you only even get a few of those. Because we were too busy enjoying our lovely home here to even take pictures.

Did I mention the view from our private pool?
This is one of those rare places you really don’t want to leave!
