We arrived late with 2 kids 6 years of age. Everything organised by the owners(airport transfer and the taxi boat) We were blown away with this place. The decor and the feeling of the place was far beyond our expectations. The owners are just lovely, warm and would do anything to make us enjoy our stay. The guy Paulino who... More

We had a fantastic stay, which we would highly recommend to anyone. The apartment was lovely, it felt very exclusive and private in an idilic lagoon location. I had a conference to attend at the Barra Windsor Hotel, which was only a short boat ride and a short walk away. The stunning beach is close by and as are many... More

Loved every aspect of this home away from home. My girlfriend went for work at the windsor with an easy boat ride. I went surfing, biking, lying at the beach, or chilling at the pool. In an hour you are in central rio by bus, with the new metro line this will be even easier. I would recommend this to... More

We stayed at the studio at Utropico over the hectic new year period, looking for somewhere slightly away from the mayhem of Copacabana and Ipanema. We were not disappointed! The Ilha Primeira setting is stunning and the hospitality offered by Sylvia and Francesco second to none. Not to mention the fantastic caipirinhas and New Years / Revillon party :) Highly... More

Let me start by saying that I have stayed in over 50 hotels around the world and never have we felt more welcomed and at home than here.

I knew I was going to find paradise. I have read and heard about this secret spot. But getting there is simply a celebration to the senses. Starting with the boat ride that gets you there in 5 minutes ... you start enjoying big, before arriving. The view, the water and those mountains that you can only see there ...... More

This was the last stop on a wonderful trip to Brazil and was definitely our favourite lodging place. Arriving at Utropico is fun in itself - it is situated on an island called Primeira within a pretty lagoon close to Barra - it felt like the "Venice" of Rio with waterways and canals lined with attractive houses and villas.
