“Immerse in this paradise!”

Imagine a place where you can simultaneously live in a traditional, Baian cottage, which is crowned with thatch and around you, you have the truest jungles that are tamed by the fence. A great pavilion for meditation, yoga, whatever you want to do exercises and workshops attracts you with its amazing aura. There are 12 loving dogs around you that you let in you to your herd. I wish everybody to immerse in this paradise!

“Lugar mágico y sosegado”

La experiencia con Evelyn y los Cachorros Amorosos fue hermosa unica e inigualable. Nos sentimos como en casa, el lugar es mágico y sosegado, la familia canina es verdaderamente amorosa y nos resultó una experiencia muy enriquecedora compartir con ellos y aprender de las relaciones cachorro /cachorro y cachorro /humano y porsupuesto debemos mencionar la amabilidad y buen corazon de nuestra anfitriona Evelyn que resultó ser una “abuelita amorosa” como de cuentos de hadas.

“Amazing space with loving dogs and good energy!”

The place is beautiful; a lot of nature with big old trees. The patio is such a great place to meditate and do yoga with the dogs. This is a nice place to take a step back, take it slow or focus on reconnecting with nature, yourself and enjoy the love of the dogs. The dogs are just amazing. All of them have their own character and that makes it very fun and interesting.
I loved meditation with the dogs around me. It felt like it just goes easier and deeper there than at home. Also the dogs love to meditate or join the yoga. Furthermore, the breakfast was great with a lot of fresh fruit. Evelyn thank you for having me!

“Excellent yoga retreat”

I had an amazing experience from first meeting Evelyn and having a delicious Bahian lunch, to saying goodbye to her wonderful dogs at the end of my stay. It was extremely enjoyable and a completely unique experience combining dogs with yoga, wish I could have stayed for longer!

“A special place”

Time here stands still. This is a place to thoroughly relax. The affection from the 13 dogs and the calming pavilion space were highlights next to time with Evelyn and her wonderful food. Definitely relax with her crystal bowl meditation. We will miss this lovely nature retreat!

Want to stay in paradise, too?

“Two week retreat“

Only gratitude for these two weeks spent here. This Retreat is a little dog’s paradise in which you can be in contact with nature and ancient trees and all the elements feeling the love and affection of a whole family of 13 dogs. All with different personalities you end up falling in love with each one of them and learn to care about them. It was a great experience.

“A beautiful nature retreat good for the soul“

This is a beautiful retreat in the lovely town of Arembepe. I enjoyed my stay so much and loved the company of the dogs who each have a different personality and make you feel extremely welcome. I would LOVE to visit again. Evelyn was a fabulous host and really cares for your needs. She treats you as a family member and for that I am every grateful. I took part in yoga and singing bowls in the beautiful pavilion. Being immersed in the beautiful nature was so good for the soul. I am extremely grateful for my stay there!

Getting in touch with nature and animals

I came to stay at Retreat Bela Natureza on their 5 day ‘Smile’ package which focuses on interacting with the dogs at the retreat. I had a wonderful 5 days not just getting to know and receiving love and affection from the 13 beautiful dogs, but also truly getting in touch with nature as the retreat is filled with tropical greenery and animals who sing throughout the day. The ensuite Curió was comfortable and spacious and the facilities at the retreat suited my needs perfectly. Thank you Evelyn and Bela Natureza!

“Maravilloso retiro lleno de amor incondicional”

Evelyn me organizó un retiro personalizado que fue genial. El sitio es maravilloso y se respira calma y paz. Yoga por las mañanas, meditación con cuencos de cuarzo…pero también tiempo para descansar, conocer el pueblo de Arembepe e ir a la playa. Fueron unas días maravillosos con Evelyn, las chicas y sus adorables perritos! Me sentí muy bien cuidada y atendida desde el principio hasta el final. Muito muito obrigada! Espero volver algún día de nuevo!!

“What an amazing experience”

My stay at retreat Bela natureza has been amazing from start to finish. I’m sad to say bye to the wonderful dogs, wonderful host Evelyn and the lovely girls I have met here also. I’ve learnt so much about myself, nature and silence for my 5 day stay. The food was wonderful and the room was really comfortable and homely, I felt like I was in nature with the calming sounds of birds, the wind and rarely rainfall before bed. I would recommend to anyone wanting some time for themselves in this truely unique setting.

“Encantos e desafios”

A estadia no retiro foi muito agradável. Os cachorros são incríveis e aos poucos me familiarizei com eles e eles comigo. Conhecer suas diferentes personalidades e hábitos foi um grande aprendizado. O sítio é muito lindo, cheio de frutas deliciosas para colher e árvores anciãs sagradas. Lá você irá experienciar uma vivência conjunta a flora e fauna local, com seus encantos e desafios.

“Merveilleux endroit”

Je suis resté une semaine dans ce merveilleux endroit avec Evelyn et sa petite famille de 13 chiens vraiment adorables. J’ai pu l’aider pour la maintenance et quelques petits travaux de jardinage. C’était quelques heures par jour et ce fût un vrai plaisir de participer à son projet, de se sentir util. Evelyn est une personne très gentille, toujours souriante, avec la main sur le coeur, qui aime partager son expérience de la vie. Si vous voulez passer une semaine de détente toute en restant un minimum actif, je vous recommande ce superbe endroit. J’ai choisi le package standard qui offre la possibilité d’aider deux heures par jour!

“Sacred space for healing“

Retreat Bela Natureza is a sacred space for healing. It’s my second time at the Retreat and, like the last, it’s been transformative. Before arriving, I was feeling unbalanced and exhausted — and the Revitalize package was exactly what I needed to restore my energy. The experience of deeply connecting with nature (gathering fresh fruit from the land, swimming in the ocean, dancing around a fire, listening to the birds sing, playing with the resident family of dogs, etc) has brought me back to life. And, Evelyn’s ability to truly see someone, hold space and offer the healing practice(s) needed is a gift. I highly recommend the Retreat and exploring all it has to offer. I’m already planning my next trip back!

“Unforgettable experience with loving dogs in nature“

Being at “Retreat Bela Natureza” for me was such a privilege. The amazing contact with nature and the dogs made my stay such a dreamy experience. The team from the Retreat put so much passion into everything they do, they are really welcoming and have a lot of knowledge on so many different subjects, from composting to meditation, reiki, art, environment… I feel like I have learned so much. It’s good to be open to learn different things you may have not even thought about before! I participated in a few different workshops and I really feel this is the perfect space for healing and also to be be inspired in creating art immersed in nature and with the constant love of the resident dogs. I stayed for the “Create” package of the Retreat, and it had been an amazing opportunity to work on my artistic skills. Looking forward to coming back here again!
