Getting Chilled in Brazil
If you’re thinking of booking a Brazilian break to experience the 2014 World Cup; why not make the most of your stay by extending your trip into a fully fledged Brazilian getaway? To get you in the right mood (and to perhaps dutifully calm your nerves) why not treat yourself to a few nights at a suave Brazilian spa hotel, to relax and rejuvenate, ready to cheer on your team when the time comes. Brazil is perhaps better known for its celebratory atmosphere, beach parties and club scene; but a little known Brazilian secret is that the country is also home to some of the world’s most sophisticated spas. We can’t think of a better way to relax before or after the match, so we’ve put together a few of our favourites.
