Paradise-The over the water bungalow

So, even though we are traveling back to Brazil today, I didn't want to leave all of you hanging and waiting for the bungalow pictures.

As we walked to the bungalows I felt an overwhelming sense of serene and calmness. You could practically feel your worries, stresses being blown away in the warm gentle breezes. The sun shone on us every day, but there was always a breeze to keep us cool. In fact, we kept the double doors open 24/7. The person that turned our bed down at night used to close the doors, and as soon as we got back we would prop them open to sleep to the sounds of the water lapping and the breezes cooling us through the night.

The bed was beautifully covered in rose petals. They gifted us sarongs, or pareos, to use and keep as a remembrance of our dreamy days there. The wooden ray was to put on the bed if you wanted the sheets changed more often than every other day. They are trying to conserve their paradise. If you click on the picture you may be able to read how they put it. The key was also a ray....very tasteful. Funny, though, after the first few days we ended up leaving our room without a key and left it open....tranquility at it's highest!
Once again, the details really make this feel even more special. Another example....(besides the rose petals on the bed!) was the simple beauty of the shampoo, conditioner, bath foam and the body milk (not pictured). Their scent was mixtures of florals and coconuts. Divine!

Ok, here is the view, taken from the water, of our bungalow. It is an inviting bedroom with a beautiful shower/bathroom area.
If you notice under the windows of the shower are completely open to the breezes with a view of the crystalline water. The colors are mesmerizing.
The bed looks out over these waters, or should I call it a pool. The water is only about 15 feet deep, great for early morning swims and snorkeling. We saw many fish, corals and even an octopus in these pools! We spent many an hour lounging here!
I will leave you for today dreaming with the beautiful colors of the sunset from our balcony....
