The lush Imbassai Nature Reserve, located along the Costa dos Coquerios in Brazil's Bahia state, envelops the Grand Palladium Imbassai Resort and Spa, a vast, remotely-located resort offering the ultimate all-inclusive vacation. The resort's broad, sparkling beach is less than 500 meters away, separated by a stand of trees and untouched wetlands embracing the Imbassai River. You'll find the resort just off the BA-099 highway, which runs along the coast from Sergipe state to the north all the way to bustling, market-laden Salvador-Bahia's capital-just over 56 miles (90 kilometers) away.
But once you get to the Grand Palladium Imbassai Resort and Spa, you won't need to go anywhere else. You can sample cuisine from several countries, breakfast and lunch are served in the buffets, and each restaurant serves dinner. Try some spicy Indian dishes, or keep it local with traditional Brazilian rodizio dining. You can dine at all of them, and they're all included. And if you want the most tropical of cocktails-or just a refreshing beer-13 onsite bars including 3 poolside bars are at your service. At the end of the day, guests 18 and older can head to the disco, which hosts live music and DJs.
Soak up the sun in 5 interconnected pools-they're lined with ample seating. At the beach, you can snorkel, kayak, or just relax among the rolling dunes. There are plenty of sport courts and fields for land-based activities, too-play a game of tennis or basketball, or start a soccer match. For younger guests, 3 different clubs, catering to different age groups, offer crafts, games, and daily activities. For a little indoor serenity, book some time in the spa. You can melt with a massage, relax in one of the 4 spa tubs, freshen up with a facial, or work out in the fitness room. And if you must keep up with the outside world, WiFi is complimentary.
Eleven freestanding villas circle the resort, so you can enjoy the view from the hammock on your balcony. You'll have ample space, too. The sitting area includes a sofa bed. Wireless Internet access is available in all rooms for a surcharge. The minibar includes complimentary soft drinks and bottled water. 24-hour room service is available. You'll find bathrobes and slippers in the bathroom, next to the luxurious jetted tub and separate shower.
