The hotel Picinguaba overlooks a peaceful bay at the heart of the Natural Park of Serra do Mar, the tropical coastal forest running between Rio and São Paulo, about half an hour's drive south of Paraty.It is the only charming hotel in a 30km radius. It faces the sea and a 3 km-long protected sandy beach. The hotel offers (09) nine comfortable rooms all opening onto the natural surroundings and the sea, including a dream honeymoon Suite with en suite jacuzzi and a breathtaking view of the ocean. The local road stops at the beach and one has to walk the last 250m to the hotel, nestled in the forest.Everything here is attuned to the spirit of the place, with nothing to disturb nature's magic: no TV or telephone in the rooms, no Internet, no air-conditioning. This place is for you to be in a different world, the only sounds are the wind in the palm trees and the sea gently lapping the shore.Pousada Picinguaba was selected in HIP HOTELS as one of the 80 most extraordinary hotels around the world and was featured in National Geographic Stay List 2011.

In January 2021, I spent a week in Pousada Picinguaba. Upon arrival I was welcomed by Bianca and from that moment on - everything was taken care of. It was one of the most beautiful holidays of my life. First of all the location: the hotel is situated on the mountain overlooking the ocean. Overlooking the bay of Pousada Picinguaba, which I could view from the hammock from my balcony. From sunrise to sunset, the view was spectacular. Never seen anything like it! Then the hotel and the rooms: next to being perfectly clean, the atmosphere makes you feel right at home. Original Brazilian artefacts everywhere and a warm and welcoming interior. A true inspiration! In my opinion the most amazing thing about the whole trip was the cuisine. Breakfast, lunch and dinner: it was a true feast every time. The chef came to our table every time to explain what we were eating. The freshest seafood, vegetables from their own vegetable garden, amazing wines! The hotel offered numerous activities: we could swim and use the sauna, we went paddle boarding and to a private island with their boat. Because of the magnificent location, there are plenty of water and land activities possible. I must say this is a truly special place. A place where the staff does everything to make your stay an unforgettable experience. A place where you can reconnect with nature and yourself. Where you can find tranquility within. After the week I felt reconnected with myself more than ever. I will come back!

We had a wonderful stay at Pousada Picinguaba. The view was just spectacular. The pool was incredible. The food was delicious and so fresh, and dinner was included. The fishing village of Picinguaba is charming and relaxed, with some really cool little quiosques and restaurants serving up fresh fish and very cold beer. You can take a short boat ride — like we did — to ilha das couves, which has a spectacular beach. We loved our stay, but in our experience traveling inside and outside of Brazil, Pousada Picinguaba was overpriced. We spent around 340 USD per night. It probably would be more appropriately priced somewhere between $200 and $225. We want to return to Picinguaba — and may come back to the Pousada for a delicious lunch — but with the price where it is now, we probably won’t be staying here. Terry

Pousada Picinguaba is something unique and very special, where exhuberant and beautiful tropical Nature is the deserved star of the show. Our family have returned here many times over the years and it has a special place in our hearts. Nestled above a tiny caicara fishing village within a state park, the pousada has views across the bay to die for, & local genuine smiles and hospitality to warm and relax you. As if that wasn't enough There's an amazing slow food restaurant - organic, fresh, local produce beautifully and skillfully prepared - truly a rare find. Simplicity is never easily achieved, it takes vision and purpose. Come here to really relax as well as to explore this stunning untouched slice of Brazil's Costa Verde
