We had great and lovely times in this place. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room (we stayed in the special chalet with hot tube) was incredibly well organized and beautiful. Congratulations for the quality of the furniture. The price is not so cheap but some moments in this place was priceless.

Once at the place, all the effort getting there is forgotten and you can really enjoy it. Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful food and service. Breakfast is amazing, as is the restaurant (ask for the smoked trout entree).

The place is super cool. It has a fresh water pool with a swim in steam room, and a hot tub with a view of their own little waterfall. It also has acres and acres of private property to hike around. And arguably it has one of the best breakfasts at any B&B in Brasil.

The hotel is not a "eco resort" as they claim, but it´s a very good place to relax, cool down and to have a peaceful weekend with your mate. The cottages with bath are very cozy and charming. Maybe the "ofuro" cottage would fit better our interests, but it was not available. The sauna and public jacuzzi are amazing spaces....

We spent an amazing weekend at the pousada. Complete privacy, great food and amenities, and incredible natural landscapes. Highly recomend for those looking to escape from a busy urban environment and reconnect with nature. The chalet with the japonese tub is worth it! The only issue was the condition of the road up the mountain to the pousada. It has...

A small paradise in the middle of the valley. In a cinematic scenario can make beautiful walks and enjoy the great trails of the place. a Great restaurant complements the resort and recommend trout with banana coverage

My husband and I recently spent about a week at this beautiful pousada. The place is very beautiful and we were lucky to get upgraded to cabin with a Japanese style furo bath. The cabins are cozy, clean, and super comfortable. Ours had a fireplace and a dvd player for movies. The pousada, in general, has everything you need to...
