Pousada Picinguaba

Splendid isolation can still be found. At Picinguaba, you can stay in a tiny, exclusive hotel without even a road – just a beach, and a forest setting.

Your expectation will mount as the road peters out. You’ll find yourself on a three kilometre stretch of protected beach, surrounded by tropical coastal forest that is part of the fabled mountain ranges of Serra do Mar.

Walk to your hotel – the road does not take you there – and your expectation will be fulfilled. Make Picinguaba part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Brazil and you will be able to stay in a remote, but extremely chic, hotel overlooking a picture-perfect bay. And you will feel as if you have the place to yourself. Picinguaba has only nine guest rooms, and there is no other hotel within a radius of 30 km. So personal service, and the space to enjoy the setting to the full, is virtually guaranteed.
