Located on the bank of the Lençóis River, a few yards from the historical centre, Hotel Canto das Águas, owned by Carlos and Yasmim, combines charm, good taste and harmony with the Chapada Diamantinas nature – a setting of impressive canyons, valleys, waterfalls, caves and fields. Along the rocky river-bed, the inn was conceived for minimum interference with the local landscape: the gardens and inner courtyards evoke the Chapada wild flowers, the staircase resembles the river rocks themselves, and even the swimming pool was thought as a typical Rio Lençóis rapid.
The inn has 44 comfortable apartments, of which 8 are suites, all with air conditioning, tv, telephone, and mini-bar. The common areas include a restaurant with a view of the river, game room, bar, and private parking.
Canto das Águas’ architecture is in harmony with the style of Lençóis’ imperial period houses. Besides this, local wood and ceramics artisans were favoured in creating the cosy and charming decor.
