My stay at retreat Bela natureza has been amazing from start to finish. I'm sad to say bye to the wonderful dogs, wonderful host Evelyn and the lovely girls I have met here also. I've learnt so much about myself, nature and silence for my 5 day stay. The food was wonderful and the room was really comfortable and homely, I felt like I was in nature with the calming sounds of birds, the wind and rarely rainfall before bed. I would recommend to anyone wanting some time for themselves in this truely unique setting.
I came to stay at Bela Natureza on their 5 day 'Smile' package which focuses on interacting with the dogs at the retreat. I had a wonderful 5 days not just getting to know and receiving love and affection from the 13 beautiful dogs, but also truly getting in touch with nature as the retreat is filled with tropical greenery and animals who sing throughout the day. Suite Corio was comfortable and spacious and the facilities at the retreat suited my needs perfectly. Thankyou Evelyn and Bela Natureza!
I've just spent 5 days at Retreat Bela Natureza experiencing their package "Smile" and had the most delightful time. I arrived there feeling stressed and exhausted and day-by-day, through deep contact with nature and their lovely family of dogs, I regained peace and quiet, inner silence and yes, my big smile! Observing dogs and sharing with them was a great experience: each one's personality, humor and attitude revealed a lot about myself. Meditating, reading, walking beside them helped me regain contact with my inner self, the main pourpose of this trip. Arembepe's beaches and town were also lovely, calm and beautiful. Small local restaurants offer great food and enviroment. Last but not least I was fortunate to be a part of a nice group guided by Evelyn, who was the person that received us and cared for us through these days, always supportive and caring. Be sure not to miss her amazing Crystal Bowls guided meditation!
I stayed at this peaceful place for one week and adored it! The dogs were very friendly, so spending time with them was a relaxing and joyful experience. They each have their own unique and lovable personalities, you will miss them when you leave! I stayed in the suite attached to the owner, Evelyn's, house. It was quite spacious and comfortable, I felt very at home. The surrounding area is lush with trees and bushes making it the perfect place to unwind and connect with nature. There is also a lovely breakfast every morning with fresh fruit and bread from the nearby market. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!
We stayed almost one week at this beautiful place and loved it. The first moment you will arrive the place with its amazing natural park will welcome you with a big hug.
The dogs are just incredible, for us it was the first experience with a family of dogs and we enjoyed it a lot. They are so friendly and welcoming and it is funny to see them together and as individuals.
We stayed in a room in the house with big bathroom and own terrace and enjoyed it a lot surrounded by beautiful trees and greens.
The hammock invites to relax and the park is beautiful place for meditation, yoga or whatever you like to relax and connect with yourself and nature.
There are a lot of local supermarkets in walking distance where you can find any essential needs. The area is safe and remote.
The centre of Arembepe is easy to reach by mototaxi or walking (35 minutes).
Evelyn (the owner) is a very amazing and interesting person who is always available to help with anything you need or to provide information. She knows a lot about the local culture and people and loves to share.
We would definitely come back!
