Our Story

Edmundo Pavão returned with innovative ideas from everything he had learned and seen in Brazil and Canada. He wanted to have friends over, surprise his family and practice that natural hospitality manner that was born out of being homesick (“saudade”).

Family is still part of Canadiano Urban Nature Hotel not only in blood. The family of employees who have faced so many challenges over the years making this a SME Leader company in 2019, respected for its history and its incredible ability to rely on a team made up of locals, who have grown with it and made out of this hotel their professional and personal projects. A local and interactive community, more than just a company that reinvents itself not only with a new decoration, but above all with a creative hospitality for a better post-covid tourism.
