Interval International announced the addition of Gran Solare Lençóis Resort, a fractional resort in Barreirinhas, Maranhão, on the northeast coast of Brazil. The area is known for the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, which features a one-of-a-kind “sandscape” encompassing 580 square miles of white-sand dunes, lagoons, and mangroves.
Located on the banks of the Preguiças River, Gran Solare Lençóis Resort features 82 fractional units. On-site amenities include a riverside restaurant, swimming pool with pool bar, spa and sauna, fitness area, game room, kids’ club, and marina. Some of the popular nearby activities are fishing and boating on the Preguiças River and visiting the Preguiças lighthouse in Mandacaru. The resort also offers a shuttle to local attractions, such as the national park.
“We’re delighted to count Interval as a partner as we begin a new chapter in our business. The company’s expertise, state-of-the-art digital tools, and exceptional leisure benefits and services will greatly assist in differentiating our product during the sales process,” said Marcos Regadas Filho, owner of Franere Comercio Construções e Imobiliaria, which has built and sold numerous resorts in the past 10 years.
The fusion of Portuguese, French, Dutch heritage and indigenous people, who settled in the Maranhão area, has created a diverse culture that is typically Brazilian. In the state capital of São Luiz, the historic center with azulejo buildings and cobblestone streets dating back to the 18th and early 19th centuries, has been listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
