Sagu was the highlight of our visit to Brazil and was highly recommend by a friend. It did not disappoint. We were collected by boat from the main pier and were greeted by monkeys in the trees when we checked in. The staff were friendly. The manager was very helpful in terms of suggesting activities. We used the free kayaks... More

A real gem. We stayed at Sagu for 4 nights - we wanted to be able to walk to the village, but be outside it to have peace and quiet. Being across the bay means you are in a tranquil setting with fantastic views, yet can wander in and have options for eating and drinking - perfect location. There is... More

We stayed down the coast, but had our last dinner at Sagu. What a find! The food and service were fantastic. This was cooking that showed both skill and care, and I could describe the service in the same manner. We are assisted on how to order just the right amount for our family of five. I wished we had...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at the resort coming away feeling relaxed and refreshed. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff were helpful at all times. The restaurant served beautiful traditional food and the breakfast was pleasant next to the water. With a private beach a stones throw away it was such an effortless experience staying... More

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
