We are a Norwegian family with kids 3 and 5 who have lived in Rio de Janeiro for two years. During this time we have traveled quite a bit in Brazil and Ilha Grande and Sagu Mini Resort is one of our absolute favorites (which our five visits the last year should prove). Ilha Grande is a sort of bohemiam... More

We recently stayed at the Pousada Sagu Mini Resort on the beauiful Island of Ilha Grande. It was my honeymoon, so we wanted to go somewhere special. The experience we had at the guesthouse was fantastic. We were welcomed from our personal boat on to the hotel by the owner, and taken straight to our room. During our stay there... More

So much love and attention is being poured into this hotel. You feel it when you’re there. Loved the island and loved Sagu. Your pulse slows down immediately upon arrival, and this was the highlight of our two week trip to Rio state. The hotel is in perfect distance from Abraoo. A picturesque pathway leads you to the beach of... More

This hotel is as picturesque as it seems on their website! The staff spoke perfect English and were beyond attentive to ensure our stay was great. The in-house restaurant makes handmade, homemade pasta to die for! You are about a 5 minute beach walk from the town center but we liked how quiet & peaceful the hotel was. Each room... More

Beautiful beachfront setting with it's own jetty is absolutely ideal. The beach is just to the side and the rooms are in the grounds which looks like a mini Botanical garden. The rooms were quite basic and a bit damp but functional. Lovely veranda with hammock. . The breakfast was Ok but food limited in variety.The internet is very erratic... More

There are probably cheaper options on Ilha Grande, in town, but nothing I saw there could compare to the sense of peace, the beauty of the setting, and the warmth of the staff. It is a pretty easy walk (bring a flashlight after dark) to get to the "center of the action" in town, or you could hire the boat... More

From the moment my girlfriend and I arrived on Ilha Grande and were picked up and brought by boat to the Sagu resort all my stress melted away. It was a welcome break from the sometimes hectic touring of Rio and offered a truly calm and welcoming atmosphere. The proximity to beaches and to the town of Abrao makes it... More

Sagu Mini resort gives you a great Ilha Grande experience as it is near private beach's and not far from where the ferry docks/Abraao centre. Private boat can pick you up if you have luggage, wise to pre-book. Back-packs can be carried along the beach-fronts to hotel as we did. Reception speaks 4 languages including English. Rooms well equip and... More

The island is beautiful and this resort is the perfect place to stay at when there. You're close enough to town, the rooms are beautiful, the balcony area is the icing on the cake. Staff is friendly and helpful, loved them all! The restaurant is great! Best fish I've had in years! Would recommend the island and this resort to... More
