A limited number of rooms makes Picinguaba very special, a high class hideaway with privileged service, and the possibility to book the whole hotel for special occasions with your family or group of friends. At Picinguaba, luxury means tranquility, nature and authenticity. Here you will experience the best of the local charm, the way of life, the culture, the music and the cuisine of Brazil.
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 hotel in a 30 km 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. The local road stops at the beach and one has to walk the last 250 meters 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.
Pousada Picinguaba was selected in HIP HOTELS as one of the 80 most extraordinary hotels around the world.
