The modern eco-resort will be set on Itacar?'s "Engenhoca" Atlantic beach in the Brazilian rain forest and will consist of an elegant hotel with 40 pavilions and 21 private villas (with 3 to 6 bedrooms). Built areas range from 750 to 1500 m? (some 8000 to 16000 sq.ft.) on plots of around 5000m? - some 1.2 acres each.
