The Resort

On a private coastal island bordered by miles of sandy beaches and covered by hundreds of coconut trees, lies Brazil's most exclusive and comprehensive resort, Transamérica Ilha de Comandatuba. The resort offers a unique combination of sophistication, seclusion and facilities, including a championship eighteen hole golf course and its very own private airport !

Ilha de Comandatuba is a low rise coastal island separated from the main land by a channel and mangrove swamps. In perfect integration with the immaculate landscape, the resort  extend through a centennial coconut grove comprising a main building and a series of bungalows disseminated under the swaying palms. Accommodation consists of apartments and suites in the main building as well as one and two-bedroom bungalows, all with five star amenities. There is a tennis centre, a swimming  pool complex, deep sea fishing facilities, a mile sandy beach with a full range of watersports, a state-of-the-art Health Club and a Spa.

Ilha de Comandatuba's Ocean Course is a unique golfing experience. Set between sea and mangrove swamps, the course was routed in an environment dominated by centennial coconut tress, sand dunes, beautiful lagoons and native vegetation. Designed by American Dan A. Blankenship, a former collaborator of Dye Designs and the busiest golf course architect in Brazil, Ilha de Comandatuba is one of the best courses in the country.

• Ocean Course

Dan A. Blankenship (2000) 18 holes - 6,928 yds - Par 72 - Rating 72,9

Ilha de Comandatuba's Ocean Course is a unique golfing experience. Set between sea and mangrove swamps, the course was routed in an environment dominated by centennial coconut tress, sand dunes, beautiful lagoons and native vegetation. Designed by American Dan A. Blankenship, a former collaborator of Dye Designs and the busiest golf course architect in Brazil, Ilha de Comandatuba is one of the best courses in the country.

This resort course has several set of tees, generous fairways, five of them along the ocean, extensive waste bunkers, ten lakes and large undulated greens. There is no deadly rough but wide sand areas instead and the ever changing ocean breeze is an added challenge for the player. Totally integrated into the original landscape, a round at Comandatuba is as much an ecological as a golf experience, its fairways frequently visited by monkeys, foxes, anteaters  and  ever present exotic birds.

Golf in Bahia

Golf in Bahia

There are no other course within driving distance for the day, but the state of Bahia boasts four golf courses of international standards, which have recently opened along the Atlantic coast: Costa do Sauipe and Praia do Forte, north of the capital Salvador de Bahia, and Ilha de Comandatuba and Terravista to the south, both designed by Dan A. Blankenship.

• Terravista Golf Course

Dan A. Blankenship (2004) 18 holes - 7.212 yds - Par 72

Situated on the southern coast of Bahia overlooking the colorful cliffs of Trancoso, Terravista harmoniously combines the region’s natural contours, vegetation and landscape with a first rate golf course. Here, golfers have the opportunity to play between the turquoise sea and the lush Atlantic rainforest while being soothed by the sound of waves and the singing of tropical birds. Terravista presents two different golfing environments. The front nine is played amidst the rainforest, with temperatures, humidity and landscape characteristic of this area. The back nine, in contrast, runs along the ocean, offers dazzling views of the beach from four of its holes perched high upon the ocean cliffs.
