This boutique hotel is tucked away in one of the small inlets along the Angra coast a little ways past the port of the same name. The hotel is beautifully landscaped around several small bungalows that are air conditioned. The showers have plenty of hot water and the rooms, though not luxurious are comfortable. It is run by two or three wait staff and the cooks. If the hotel is full the service is super slow, though not for lack of effort. Joel does his best to run the reception, wait on tables and tend bar. The internet is painfully slow and wholly inadequate. WIFI is only available in and around the reception area. It is best if you have your own transportation as the hotel is relatively isolated but there is frequent bus transportation just outside of the hotel. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful tropical landscape and beach. Lastly, bring plenty of insect repellent.

Room Tip: There is only one room with direct view of the inlet/beach and it is located above the bar.

A wonderful little facility to relax at on a beautiful beach in a fairly quiet seaside residential community. Of the dozen or so residences on this beach, this is the only hotel. Many of the rooms are separate cottages. They are spacious and clean and well maintained. The hotel has a pool, spa, hot tub, restaurant, and large patio area at the beach.
For those that want to explore, shop, etc., the City of Angra Dos Reis is just a few miles back, as well as little beach communities further down the road.

Room Tip: I would choose one of the cottages.

Ended a six week trip of South America with a week's rest and relaxation at the Pousada before going home to the UK. What a gem.

The trip by Costa Verde bus from Rio takes about 3 hours and once we arrived we hardly left the Pousada as it was so relaxing and such a pleasant environment. The accommodation is roomy and pleasantly decorated. There are only nine rooms so it never feels busy.

The private beach is small but well kept. The Pousada has beach equipment including umbrellas, chairs and kayaks. There are also plenty of seats and 5 loungers on the decking area overlooking the sea. There is a sauna and small pool and a very small fitness room if you feel so inclined.

The staff are great and the service either around the decking area, the restaurant or the reception is first class. We had only a tiny amount of Portuguese and they had no English but we were well looked after utilising simple phrases, sign language and online dictionaries.

The restaurant is an absolute gem. A limited menu but nevertheless all the food is excellent quality and nothing disappointed us. Breakfast was really good every day and they were happy to cook eggs however we ordered them. The fruit was delicious.

WIFI is restricted to the reception area only unfortunately.

There are many boat trips to the islands that can be arranged (we went on a trip with other holiday makers from the Pousada and would recommend) and various other beaches in the vicinity if you want to explore. Angra itself is not particularly attractive and I would not suggest that this is an evening venue.

Room Tip: Sea view room would be recommended

The Pousada Da Figueira is a unique and wonderful place - not just a hotel, but an experience. The owners of the hotel have focused on the details, everything from decoration to wonderful food and full breakfast. The rooms are spotlessly clean, and this little secret nestles amidst the tropical forest and opens onto the splendour of a private beach - a world of itself. Excellent service and friendly staff. The Pousada Da Figueira is tucked away within the hills surrounding the nearby town of Angra, yet when you are here you don't need to go anywhere. Just bring a bathing suit and corkscrew!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have sea view

We spent a few days in Rio de Janeiro this December and then wanted to leave the urban setting to discover some of the beautiful waterfront settings along the coast. We headed to Paraty and decided to stop along the way at this piece of Paradise, the Pousada da Figueira and were quite satisfied. It is isolated down a small dirt road, far away from anybody. It is a small privately owned home and property and we had a room facing the water and a botanical garden from a dream. There was only one other couple there at the same time so we had the whole place to ourselves, including a beautiful private beach, great dining room with personalized custom service, a jacuzzi, and a chance to do a few boating trips around the beautiful islands. It was truly a unique place to be and I would return....

Room Tip: Get a room facing the water. It makes a big difference compared to the rooms that face the inner garden (which is pretty too, but not as nice as the water views).
