You are picked up by a small boat at the main pier when you arrive from the main land in Abraao and you arrived at the private pier of the hotel. A little secluded, most of the rooms overlook the water. By being 10 minutes walk from Abraao, the main town means that it is very quiet and you do... More

Amazing stay. Perfect location in the island, a 10 minute walk from Vila do Abraão, and nicely located in the middle of the forest. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and we got a free upgrade to their nicest suite, even though it was high season. Cleanliness, infrastructure and service were flawless.The restaurant was also very good, one of... More

Magnificent location at the seafront with spectacular views and direct access to the beach. Impressive botanic garden. Friendly hosts and attentive service. The hotel is situated a little outside of the main village, but can be reached easily. The ideal place to experience the beauty of the island in an idyllic setting.

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
