Minor Hotels Announces Second Anantara Resort in Brazil

Minor Hotels has announced its second Anantara property in Brazil. Slated to launch in 2026, Anantara Preá Ceará Resort will be located in the state of Ceará on the country’s northeast coast.

Soon to begin development on Preá Beach in the municipality of Cruz near the tourist destination of Jericoacoara, the resort will offer 60 guestrooms and villas, 25 branded residential bungalows, some with private pools, and a 1,290-square-foot Presidential Suite. Anantara Preá will be built within the Vila Carnaúba real estate development, offering guests access to all Vila Carnaúba’s amenities, such as restaurants and bars, sports facilities, gym, a children’s club, a kitesurfing school and a variety of nature walks. The resort will also be home to a regional restaurant and a signature spa.

The state of Ceará is well known for its sand dunes and beaches, lagoons and mangroves, with around a third of the state’s territory forming part of the Jericoacoara National Park. The coastline is also well established as one of the country’s popular destinations for watersports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and wing foil surfing.

The new resort is being developed in partnership with Grupo Carnaúba. The eco-resort will extend over an area of nearly 13 acres. The project’s design and decor are being created by Brazilian architect Miguel Pinto Guimarães. The landscaping will be developed by Embyá Paisagens & Ecossistemas. The hotel’s construction will focus on natural and regional materials.

The sustainable and social initiatives of Vila Carnaúba, which is in the final stages of development, are an essential element of this partnership. These will include waste disposal and recycling, reforestation initiatives, replanting of carnauba wax palm trees indigenous to northeastern Brazil, and supporting local food producers.

Anantara Preá Ceará Resort will be accessible via the regional airport of Jericoacoara, just 15 minutes away. Transfers can also be arranged by car or small aircraft to Preá from the state’s main airport in Ceará, which is 186 miles from the resort.
