Having visited no less than a dozen different beaches in Brazil over more than one decade, we can tell you that the raving reviews for this place are justified: this is the charming and cozy experience you expect from a Brazilian pousada (this means a more relaxed, laid back style than a hotel, with a much more personal attention -which is not always the case). The owners, Vinicius and Andrea, are there all the time making you feel truly at home (here's to Vinicius' delicious, home brewed cachaca, just to mention a detail). We stayed in March '12: the setting is very beautiful, right on the beachfront, in the quiet part of Pitinga beach, which feels here like your own private one (i.e. no nearby beach bars playing axé music or the like, so this is very much a hotel for those of the relaxing type), yet walking distance from downtown (though you'll need a car or take a taxi to get there in the evenings) and from different types of beaches, from the more crowded to the peaceful ones. The garden and pool are gorgeous, rooms are placed in houses in the garden, and some of them are on a lush-green small hill where you wake to the song of birds every morning (check before booking, it was great for us, but going up and down three or four stony staircases several times a day may not be for everyone). If anything, double rooms are a bit on the smallish side -though this was not a big problem, the common areas are so comfortable you may spend the whole day from the garden to the beach and to the pool. All in all, they make you feel so welcome and comfortable that the only sad part of it all is having to get back home!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A pit stop of excellence.It takes a jeux de mots (privilege+village) to define this gorgeous Villa, hugged by the Atlantic Rain Forest, with a design transparent to that of Arraial d' Ajuda. It is situated on Pitinga's Beach, protected by coral reefs,which form natural pools and a lake in the sea that nobody gets tired contemplating. Privillage Praia, simple and sophisticated, cozy, charmy without affectation or axé music, lies encrusted on the forest, with the ocean at its feet: the place is just beautiful… You wake up near the beach just in time for jogging or diving before the breakfast. DISTANCE TO THE CENTER OF TOWN: 2 KM. Don't worry about your children: your family suite is just close by! You will spend the day on the beach, take a siesta at any time and when evening comes, go to Arraial's heighs in order to enjoy town's hush and fuss. That's the best way to take advantage of your day. When you get back home all concerns will be far away. A superb restaurant exclusive for guests is also available. ... more less
