(PRESS RELEASE) New York, NY, 2023-Dec-18 — /Travel PR News/ — Pegasus Lodges, renowned for pushing the boundaries of remote travel experiences, proudly announces the latest addition to its portfolio, Fajã do Belo. Following a successful soft launch earlier this year, the grand opening is set for January 2024. Guests can immerse themselves in the exclusive Pegasus Programming—curated experiences carefully designed to enhance their stay and create lasting memories. The adventure begins even before arrival, as the lodge is accessed via a brief mountain hike, inviting travelers to experience the essence of “The Azores” on the secluded island of São Jorge.
Distinguishing itself from more conventional travel locations, Fajã do Belo offers an intimate connection to nature, surrounded by untouched mountains and waterfalls. Situated between the tumultuous waves of the Atlantic and the rugged cliffs that define the Azores coast, these fajãs are born from the remnants of collapsing cliffs and ancient lava flows. Among this natural spectacle, Fajã do Belo offers guests the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities, from the adrenaline rush of canyoning to the serene pleasures of fishing, diving, or simply relaxing onsite. For surf enthusiasts, Fajã do Belo provides the ideal playground with perfect conditions for surfers of all levels. Designed for those yearning to escape the mundane, Fajã do Belo encourages travelers to immerse themselves fully in the unspoiled beauty of the Azorean landscape.
The architectural charm of Fajã do Belo is embodied in its eight villas, meticulously crafted from locally sourced volcanic stone. The vibrant red doors and windows open up to panoramic views of the sea, sky, and lush fauna, creating a seamless connection between the indoors and the breathtaking surroundings. Inside, high ceilings with traditional wooden beams accentuate the open-concept floor plan, while woven baskets, hardwood floors, a tree stump bedside table, and comfortable wool throws contribute to a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. The interior color palette, dominated by greys, whites, and beige, creates a bright and inviting ambiance, complemented by touches of red or yellow in pillows, vases, and towels that breathe life and color into the villas. Each villa, uniquely named Belo Vista, Belo Surf, Belo Canto, Bela Mamba, Bela Lua, Belo Malandro, Bela Esperança, and Belo Paraíso accommodates 3 to 5 individuals in one to two bedrooms.
Fajã do Belo’s commitment to authenticity extends to its culinary offerings, with full-service dining showcasing curated local selections of meat, fish, cheese, and other flavors, delivering an authentic Azorean food experience. Guests will enjoy a continental breakfast with an assortment of fresh bread, cheese, coffee, and meats. Lunch and dinner will be prepared and delivered to guests by the resident chef who will prepare traditional Azorean and Portuguese dishes. A selection of wine and spirits allows guests to elevate their dining experience further.
Beyond the villas, Fajã do Belo unveils a world of adventure with accessible hiking trails leading to hidden lakes, waterfalls, and remote surf breaks along the Atlantic. Accompanied by knowledgeable guides, guests are encouraged to tap into their expertise. An onsite host will always be available to assist guests in various ways, including curating activities, guiding them to explore their surroundings, and ensuring they have the best possible experience. This collaborative effort fosters an appreciation of the region from a local’s point of view rather than that of a tourist.
Forged from Pegasus Lodges’ “edges of the Earth” philosophy, Fajã do Belo strongly relies on local resources to immerse itself into the natural surroundings of the Azores. During their stay, guests uncover tranquility and the opportunity to create cherished memories with loved ones, while forming a genuine connection with nature.
