Santa Barbara Eco-Beach Resort, Ribeira Grande, Portugal

Santa Barbara Eco-Beach Resort, Ribeira Grande, Portugal

It began in 2015, with a passion for the natural black beaches along the picturesque northern coast of São Miguel in the Azores: the unique, almost magical, green pastures and mountain hues that contrast with the azure blue oceans are the ideal backdrop for a calming resort retreat. It was here, overlooking the grand beach of Santa Barbara, that the Azores’ first ecologically-friendly eco-beach resort was opened. Our inviting natural coastal landscape, the elegance of our modern luxury spaces and our commitment to a full-range of experiences epitomizes our passion for the art of hospitality, nature and, above all, the Azores.

Not just another hotel, but a dream given form by João Reis, an entrepreneur and enthusiastic surfer, who realized a vision on the northern coast of São Miguel. It began from a passion: a passion for the dark, sandy beach that bears its name; for the mysterious blue waters of the Atlantic; and mystic green pastures and forested-mountains of Ribeira Grande. This environment mixed with a desire to transmit the same passions for nature, the sea and, above all, the Azores resulted in SANTA BÁRBARA. João Reis respected the natural beauty of the island and developed this resort to be in harmony with the island’s unique surroundings. Built from scratch, and in perfect symbiosis with the coastal ecology, the eco-friendly beach resort is integrated into its environment. Its architecture, the materials and the framing of the landscape were the three main concerns of the project. What resulted was a site that breathes in the island and coastal ecosystem, providing its visitors with a tranquil stay.
