Minor Hotels to take Anantara brand to South America
POSTED 11 Jan 2018 . BY Tom Walker
Minor Hotels will open its first Anantara-branded resort in South America this year, with the launch of the Anantara Maraú Bahia Resort in the Bay of Camamu in Brazil.

Minor, which is based in Thailand, has taken over the former Kiaroa Eco-Luxury Resort and is redeveloping the property.

Slated to open in the middle of the year, the resort will initially house just 30 guest rooms, suites and bungalows, but will be expanded later with the introduction of suites and bungalows in beachfront and garden settings – some featuring a private pool.

Exact details of the resort’s Anantara Spa are still to be confirmed, but it will offer traditional Thai treatments, mixed with spa journeys influenced by local wellness practices.

Other facilities at the resort will include a beachfront, Bahian restaurant offering fine dining, swimming pool, tennis courts, health club and a range of leisure activities on the beach – from beach volleyball to horseback riding.

A statement from Anantara said the resort "embodies castaway luxury”.

The opening is part of Minor’s plans to establish the Anantara brand in emerging and growing luxury markets around the globe.

Last month, it announced plans to open a beachfront spa resort in the Arab Emirate of Sharjah.

Also in 2017, Minor opened two Anantara resorts in Oman, one in China and revealed plans for a Anantara waterfront resort in Zanzibar.
