I believe the perfect honeymoon is not about the destination, rather it is about the precious time a couple spends together celebrating their new path in life. Which is why my husband and I decided that we had to visit Pousada Picinguaba, because there we could truly escape the distractions in life, as the hotel had no TVs, no Internet, and no telephone reception, thus the focus completely on each other.
Pousada Picinguaba is situated half-way between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo in a quiet, seaside village. The hotel is tucked away on a hill surrounded by the ultimate in natural beauty — with a view so magnificent it truly takes your breath away. There are only ten rooms, ensuring seclusion and exceptional and attentive service
While the decor in the honeymoon suite is simple, it has everything newlyweds could want and more. The comfortable King sized bed is draped in a romantic mosquito netting. Every day cold, fresh water is brought to the room and placed on the large dining table in the middle of the room. The orchids and candles that decorate the room add to its rustic charm.
Adjacent to the bed is an amazing jacuzzi that is reason enough to visit Pousada Picinguaba. There is also a separate ensuite bathroom that contains a shower.
Only the honeymoon suite has a spacious balcony with an inviting hammock that overlooks the sea. Many nights were spent swinging in the hammock watching the sun set over this tropical hideaway. Breakfasts are included in the room price and like all typical Brasilian breakfasts are large and delicious.
Why It Is Andi’s Pick
This charming pousada wins my heart over with its magnificent pool that is surrounded by the very best of what Brasil has to offer.
Pousada Picinguaba’s philosophy, which they achieve effortlessly, is luxury means tranquility, nature, and authenticity.
