Tropical pavilions


Coastal rainforest





Spread out over a set of four structures made by local craftsman, Casa Anderson is a refreshing rainforest-surrounded retreat by the Brazilian coast. At the heart of Bahia’s historic Quadrado, this luxury villa fans out under a canopy of tropical trees in a private garden. Each of the three bedrooms is set in its own bungalow (one a treehouse-style pavilion on stilts), and a fourth, colonial-style building houses the main indoor living area and master kitchen. There’s a gently curving private pool with hydro-massage, plenty of inviting outdoor lounge areas, and an alfresco kitchen with a barbecue, all with views of the rainforest and a soundtrack of chirping monkeys and exotic birds.
