I stayed in the pousada for a weekend and I loved it since the beggining, when I arrived in the vila Picinguaba.The landscape is beautiful and the location is perfect, with a great view over the 'serra do mar'. I talked a lot with the employees (that are locals) and I really liked the concept of the pousada, that is... More

We spent three days at Pousada Picinguaba as the second part of our honeymoon after spending five days at Fazenda Catuçaba. We had a great driver who took us from the Fazenda right to the Pousada. The Pousada is located at the end of the road out of Ubatuba. This quaint little fishing village wasn’t bustling with tourists and traffic... More

Pros: 1. Amazing setting. Views, mist, fishing village, mountains, boats, etc. Really ideal. 2. Incredible staff. Super attentive, kind and genuine. Decent English. 3. Unique property. Basically an old house, but kept up nicely. Very charming and tastefully decorated. 4. Cool activities. Take a small boat to an island beach for the day. Paddle board up a river, hike, paraty...

What a place this small pousada is.. Quietly tucked away on the hillside overlooking the sea, super friendly service, one of the most beautiful infinity pools you are likely ever to see, fresh fish on the grill, outside dinner with view over the sea, hammocks for a quiet siesta and an array of outdoors activities (we took a day on...

We spent the weekend at this small 17-room pousada, and loved every minute. Location is fantastic, overlooking Picinguaba bay and Praia da Fazenda. Room as a bit small, but comfortable and very clean. A/C works wonders. On Saturday we hiked to Praia da Fazenda, a 3km deserted beautiful beach, 20 min away from the hotel. Bliss. On Sunday we joined... More

I'm not sure from reading some of the below reviews what people expect from this hotel. It is the most wonderful boutique hotel, with lovely freshly made food, very friendly staff, beautifully decorated rooms and a view to die for. People complain about mosquito's, or staff not speaking English, or having to not put paper down the toilet because of... More

A beautiful location, in a small fishing village way off the beaten track, with excellent views and friendly, welcoming and attentive staff. It is very quiet, save for the bird song in the pretty garden around an attractive pool. This pousada is recommended by Forbes and Vogue presumably by people who have only seen the photographs? Because the accommodation is... More

We spent our days kayaking and hiking through beautiful tropical rainforest looking for toucans, and swimming with turtles in clean, warm water.
