About Vila Gale Fortaleza, Fortaleza

Situated on one of Brazil's most picturesque beaches, the Vila Gale Fortaleza is a palm-studded paradise near the center of this thriving coastal city. From its exterior, to the lobby, restaurants, and guestrooms, the Vila Gale exudes a tropical-chic decor that's comfortable and inviting.

You won't need to travel far for the area's top attraction: The wide, sandy shores and leaf-roofed cabanas of Futuro Beach are just steps from the hotel. Fortaleza's city center, about 13 km (8 mi) away, does offer plenty of attractions. Meireles Beach is located just off the bustling Avenida Beira Mar, a beach promenade filled with bars and street vendors. The city's robust nightlife centers around the bars, clubs, and comedy venues in the Praia de Iracema neighborhood, about a 20 minute cab ride from the hotel.

But what's traveling without the eating? The Dunes restaurant serves up traditional Portuguese cuisine as well as a hearty selection of Italian pasta dishes. For lighter fare, head to Tides restaurant, perfect for an outdoor lunch or cool Caipirinha drink, Brazil's national cocktail. You can also pull up a lounger shaded by palms and enjoy your drink and appetizers poolside at one of the hotel's 2 pools. A kid's pool is also located nearby, and a children's club is on site. If the ocean breeze and palm trees aren't relaxing enough, treat yourself by visiting Satsanga, the full-service onsite spa. It offers a range of body and facial treatments, aromatherapy, and reflexology. A fitness center is available onsite if you prefer to get active during your stay. And the 24-hour business center has a fax and copy machine.

Rooms at the Vila Gale take advantage of the hotel's oceanfront location with stunning views of Futuro Beach. These air-conditioned rooms are designed with a modern tropical theme: dark wood furniture, indigenous-inspired art work, and bright, sunny spaces. You can stay connected with complimentary WiFi and cable TV. Business-friendly amenities are direct-dial phone, voice mail, and desk. Private bathrooms include jetted tubs, roll-in showers, and hairdryers.
