MIAMI—Interval International has added Mussulo Resort by Mantra, on Brazil’s northeastern coast, to its global exchange network. Near the town of Conde in the state of Paraíba, Mussulo Resort is one of the first all-inclusive resorts in the region.
Set within 24 acres, the resort is 875 yards from Carapibus Beach, where natural barrier reefs create warm, clear water pools at low tide. The property includes 102 one- and two-bedroom bungalows constructed of local woods and materials. Each is furnished with items handcrafted in Brazil and Angola in northeast Africa, home to one of Mantra Group’s founders. Bungalows feature a living room, kitchenette, cable TV, complimentary WiFi and ocean views.
On-site amenities and services include the beach, two swimming pools, multi-sport and beach volleyball courts, a fitness center, spa, beauty salon, game room, kids’ club, two restaurants and babysitting. Guests also may take a free shuttle to the exclusive Mussulo Beach Club on Tabatinga Beach, which includes another restaurant, and is roughly a mile away. The resort is 16 miles from João Pessoa, the capital of Paraíba, where there are restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options.
