Located midway between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo, Pousada Picinguaba overlooks a peaceful bay at the heart of the Natural Park of Serra do Mar. This tropical coastal forest runs between Rio and São Paulo, about half an hour's drive south of Paraty. It is the only luxury hotel in a 30km radius. It faces the sea and a 3 km-long protected sandy beach. The hotel offers 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. For those looking for more space and privacy, Villa Casa Verde offers accommodation for up to 6 guests, with their own bedrooms, private balcony and terrace, and private dining area. 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. 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.

The region around Picinguaba is one of the most beautiful, well preserved and least well-known parts of the whole Brazilian coast. Whether you feel energetic or lazy, you will find everything you need in this extraordinarily rich natural environment which combines beaches, forests and mountains.

The Pousada organizes exclusively for its guests a wide range of outdoor activities which are a chance to discover the region and its friendly inhabitants: hiking in the tropical rainforest with our in-house guide, cruising on our schooner to explore local islands, visiting Paraty, hiking through the lost villages of the coastal stretch, scuba diving, etc.

During your stay, you will hardly meet any other tourists, you will be alone most of the time. You won’t need a car to get around, because there are enchanting places close to the village and the hotel, which you can go to on foot, by kayak or by boat.
