The Pousada Natureza is owned by a German who fell in love with the island years ago and was one of the first establishments to open on Morro de Sao Paulo, back in 1986. It is located amidst pleasant tropical vegetation on the hillside directly above the landing dock, and offers accommodation in 16 guest rooms, each with a terrace and a hammock. It also has a swimming pool and a bar restaurant.

    Location 3.0 /10

    This establishment is located on the hillside of Morro de Sao Paulo just above the landing dock, near Praça da Amendoeira. Morro de Sao Paulo is on the island of Tinharé, which is a 2 and a half hour boat ride from Salvador de Bahia. On top of this is the 30 minute journey from the airport to Salvador de Bahia. If you can afford it, you can make the journey directly in a small plane: there is an airstrip some 30 minutes away from the hotel and the flight to Salvador de Bahia takes only 20 minutes!

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 25 guest rooms measure between 15 and 70m², depending on whether you book into a bungalow, a superior room (upstairs), or a special suite (with a flat screen and a large whirlpool bathtub on the terrace with panoramic views of the sea). All of the rooms have satellite television (with 20 channels), a king size bed, individual air conditioning, a telephone, free Wifi Internet access, and a mini bar fridge. Room service is available from 7:00am to 11:00pm. There is a little terrace with a hammock that overlooks either the sea or the garden. The bathroom is tiny but is equipped with a fixed head shower, a toilet, and two bars of soap masquerading as hospitality products.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Pousada Natureza was one of the first establishments to open in Morro de Sao Paulo, back in 1986! Its owner is a German who fell in love with the island of Tinharé, and it is easy to see why! The hotel was renovated in 2009. It is built on a slope, so is not to be recommended to people with reduced mobility, and consists of 16 guest rooms in a little tropical garden (the plants include a traveller's tree), a bar restaurant, and a little kidney-shaped swimming pool with panoramic views of the sea. There is also a solarium with cushioned wooden deckchairs, white fabric parasols, and showers. Towels are supplied free of charge at reception. As there is no organised entertainment, the setting is peaceful. The architecture and white walls bring to mind the kind of buildings seen in Greece and Tunisia.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The Anis restaurant is in an open-sided straw hut (no air conditioning) facing the sea, and serves à la carte Bahian and international dishes. Breakfast is served from 8:00am to 11:00am and then lunch and dinner are served continuously until 11:00pm. The bar is open from 10:00am to 10:00pm, serving delicious tropical fruit juices as well as an unbeatable caipirinha!

    Beach 7.95 /10

    The Pousada Natureza is one of the few hotels on Morro de Sao Paulo that is not right on the beach, but beaches n°1 and n°2, the busiest on the island, are only a 15 minute walk away. Sheltered by rocks, they boast beautifully fine, soft white sand. You can have a go at snorkelling here or try out kite surfing or banana boat rides. The beaches are very well equipped with plastic deckchairs and parasols, as well as bars, restaurants, and shops; these are found in the village at the foot of the morro (small hill). The lighthouse can be seen to the left. There are no showers. The Pousada Natureza has a sailing school with a good reputation on Gamboa beach.

    To know

    The Pousada Natureza is in a great location a stone's throw from Morro de Sao Paulo's landing dock, from where there is a track leading to a 16th century Portuguese fort. Another path nearby climbs up to the lighthouse on the summit of the morro, from where there is an amazing panoramic view. The beach is 30 seconds away - via a zipline if you so choose, for guaranteed excitement! Wifi Internet access is free throughout the establishment, including in the guest rooms, although you will need to bring your own computer. Bear in mind that the establishment is on a hill, so there are inevitably a lot of stairs to contend with. Therefore, the Pousada is not recommended for the elderly or people with reduced mobility (not to mention that none of the rooms have been designed with these demographics in mind). Animals are welcome here (the owner's 2 dogs enjoy the run of the garden), and if you do bring your pet, you will be best off asking to stay in a bungalow for the extra space (they measure 50 to 70m²). There is a good choice of DVD's to watch in the television room. There is also a space set aside for massages and yoga, and even an art gallery!

      You can stop looking, we've found paradise and it's here! On the enchanted beach, the praia Encantado, the furthest away from Morro de Sao Paul and totally secluded, it takes a two and a half hour boat crossing from Salvador de Bahia and another hour on dirt tracks to reach this hotel. A beautiful lagoon, charming rooms, an exotic garden that lights up with fireflies at night, delicious dishes you can enjoy right on the seafront, and a swimming pool facing the sea all await you. In short, the Anima Hotel is an exceptional establishment, perfectly suited for a romantic stay!

      Ideally nestling on the Praia Segundo beachfront, a short walk from the village of Morro de Sao Paulo, the Pousada Villa das Pedras offers 25 guest rooms, each with its own terrace and a hammock. A nice place for a holiday, you can enjoy the seaside location and make the most of the village, with its bars and restaurants set alongside the beach. The facilities are limited to a single swimming pool but its modest size contributes to the friendly atmosphere.
