While looking for a perfect, isolated, island getaway I think that we've found our place on Ilha grande. The pousada is really nice, unique and clean, with South African decorations. Karien and Riann are very nice and helpful to make your stay with them special. Riann is a great chef and does a great 3 course dinner. And the staff,... More

I second the last review by JDsTravels (could've copied and pasted their comment entirely!). We had a great stay at Vila Pedra Mar! Our room had a balcony with wonderful views of the sea and the location was absolutely perfect. The room was well appointed and the decor throughout the property is really lovely. It was just a short hike... More

We spent 2 outstanding days on Ilha Grande at Vila Pedra Mar. My only regret was not staying longer! From the first email to our departure, Riann and Karien were wonderful. The Brisamar suite was everything you want it to be with the perfect balcony to enjoy the sunset. The honor bar was a nice touch to keep us happy... More

When we stepped off the boat onto the hotel’s private dock, the owners, Karien and Riann, were waiting to greet us. The service was unequaled. Without exception, very warm and friendly. We had a special request and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Two other lovely Irish girls there besides us, we basically had the place to... More

We have recently returned from a 6 night stay on the beautiful "Ilha Grande" and Vila Pedra Mar. We were looking for a quiet location, comfort, good food and natural beauty and we were not disappointed. We booked the spacious Honey Moon Suite and were able to relax on the terrace and enjoy the beautiful views over the bay. Breakfasts... More

Excellent place to relax and get away from the daily stress. Sleeping whilst hearing the noises waves is incredibly relaxing. The only way to be closer to the sea, would be to sleep in a boat. Riann is great cook. Riann and Karien manage to give their customers the feeling of being their personal guest at their home and privacy... More

After a hectic week in the heart of Rio we arrived at Ilha Grande in perfect time. The managers organized the transfer from Rio with a driver and the boat. The lovely South African couple welcomed us with Caipirinhas and some information about the totally amazing house. We had a few days in the sun with some hiking, snorkeling, swimming... More

We stayed here for ten nights in April 2016 for our honeymoon. Wonderful pousada; they really can't do enough for you. Cool, spacious suite with two private balconies; fantastic views of the bay and misty hills beyond. Arguably the highlight of the day was sitting on the balcony in the late afternoon watching the light change as the sun went... More

Vila Pedra Mar is tucked away in a small bay of Ilha Grande (a large island in Rio de Janeiro state, about two hours from Rio by car and boat). It is covered by the biologically diverse Atlantic rain forest--one of the rarest forests on the planet. The scenery is just outstanding, and Vila Pedra Mar, built into a small... More

A near 100% 5 star rating on tripadvisor says a lot in its own right, and it's very much deserved at this place. Serving as a fantastic end to our holiday, we stayed 4 nights, capping off a stay in Rio. It’s approx. 2.5hr dirve away + a (fast) boat connection of around 30mins.
