Before we began our honeymoon, we accepted the fact that there would be a lot of traveling during our time in Brasil. We were visiting 4 cities, 3 of which were off the beaten track. Our next stop would be Picinguaba. We had to drive 1.5 hours from Trancoso to Puerto Seguro, then fly to Sao Paulo, and finally drive 3 hours to Picinguaba. We are both obsessed with the movie Rio (if you have not seen it yet stop reading this post and rent it), thus when we saw we would be flying in a plane that was designed to look like one of the characters from it, we knew it had to be a sign that we were on the right path!
And the signs kept continuing, as upon arrival to Pousada Picinguaba, we were greeted in the lobby by this couple that beard a slight resemblance to us newlyweds.
Just like in Trancoso, we had arrived late into the evening, which meant we had no idea what our surroundings looked like and had to eagerly wait until morning to find out. The staff generously left us a bottle of champagne and a thoughtful note by the gorgeous jacuzzi that was situated in the middle of the honeymoon suite.
We were tempted to skip dinner and take a bath instead, however a table had been arranged for us on the deck of the swimming pool with the gentle sound of the sea in the background. Several years ago, Picinguaba acquired a nearby farm, which is where all of their organic produce comes from. Only hotel guests are allowed to dine at their renowned restaurant. The menu changes daily and is designed for guests to share the wonders of the ocean, the mountains, and the tropical forests that surround Picinguaba.
After our romantic dinner, we returned to our room to discover that during turndown service candles had been lit and a bath had been drawn for us. It is as if the hotel had read our minds.
On this night we would relax, but in the morning we would explore.

That is excellent turndown service!
Not sure where you’re seeing the “slight resemblance” — though if by “slight” you mean “married”, then yes 😉
Hahaha it was a joke. Was hoping people would laugh when they read it! 🙂
