Lovely poussada, with the best sunsets anywhere! Excellent food at a good price. Nelson and his wife were excellent hosts. We spent our days kayaking, relaxing, hammock-swinging, watching sunsets, and generally enjoying the isolation. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks!

This is a fabulous hotel in a beautiful location. Its great place for a relaxing few days, fresh air, walks, swimming, and kayaking. The staff are excellent and made us feel very welcome and the food is good. The only bad part of the experience was a very noisy (drunk) next door neighbour combined with not much noise insulation -... More

The location is beautiful, although quite expensive to get to as its quite isolated - R$200 in a water taxi one way from Abraao, a few guests were complaining about the costs to the mainland as well. The grounds and property are beautiful, the yoga studio is very impressive. The view from the rooms is gorgeous although the beach is... More

This place is a gem. Its gorgeous, its simple, its elegant, and offers some adventure and relaxation all in one. The hotel blends into the natural landscape of the island and the room was open, clean and spacious. Nelson and his entire staff are friendly and helpful in every possible way.

My husband and I just returned from an amazing one week stay at Estrela da Ilha for our honeymoon. It was exactly what we wanted - an escape from the world. No internet, no TV, no radio, no newspapers, just plenty of gorgeous beaches and rainforest to explore. We were picked up in Angra by Paulo and brought straight to... More

This hotel was one of the highlights of our month long trip around South America. We stayed for a week over Christmas and we couldn't have expected a more special Christmas!

We had a delayed arrival due to unprecedented tourist volumes on the coast on that weekend. That all changed from the minute we arrived. Nelson introduced us to the lodge and how it worked after a welcome dinner in a fantastic setting - that set the tone. What followed was three days of bliss. There is plenty to do on... More

There are many places in the world that could be described saying: beautiful venue, built in perfect harmony with nature, very nice beach, a high - yet informal - level of service, and awesome food and drinks.
