The paradise beach setting, large swimming pool and pool bar, big tropical garden, and wide range of leisure facilities all guarantee a relaxing break. It is a charming address that should please just about everyone.

    Location 3.99 /10

    This establishment is found between Beach 3 and Beach 4 in Morro de Sao Paulo, which is part of Tinhare Island, It is a 20 minute walk away from the boat terminal and a 2 and a half hour crossing 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 7 minutes away from the hotel and the flight to Salvador de Bahia takes only 20 minutes!

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 40 guest rooms are housed in 10 utterly charming 2 storey buildings (2 rooms on the first floor, 2 on the ground floor) with yellow facades covered in blooming ivy. The rooms are not very spacious, measuring only 22m². The decor is quite uncluttered (white walls and no pictures) but there is plenty of charm thanks to the 4 poster bed (with a mosquito net) and the wooden furniture. Their real advantage, however, is the wooden terrace looking over either the sea or the garden with its hammock, an item of supreme luxury in tropical countries! There is also a large mirror in which to admire your reflection! As for the service and facilities, the rooms are equipped with satellite television (28 channels), a small safe with a key (free), individual air conditioning, a telephone, free Wifi Internet access, and a mini bar fridge. Room service is available during the day. The spacious bathroom is accessed through a sliding wooden door. Inside, you will find a big shower with a fixed shower head, a separate toilet, a drying rack, magnifying mirror, hair dryer, and hospitality products.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Pousada Villa Dos Corais opened in December 2004 and really has more in common with a resort than a pousada. Although there is no all-inclusive option available, the establishment consists of 40 rooms distributed throughout 10 two storey buildings spread over a large tropical garden. The multitude of facilities and amenities start off with the vast swimming pool (25x10m and 1m50 deep), which has a pool bar open from 8:00am to 7:00pm. The solarium space surrounding it is equipped with cushioned wooden deckchairs, parasols, showers, and even a hammock, not to mention plenty of patches of lawn. Towels are provided on the spot, free of charge. There is a beach volleyball pitch just next to the pool. As there is no organised entertainment, the setting is peaceful. The large tropical garden is a lovely place to stroll under the coconut trees, and a wooden bridge over the river shows the way down to Beach 4, where the beach restaurant is located. If you feel like a short rest on your way down, there is a double mattress handily set beneath a gazebo, and there is even a big aviary with parakeets inside!

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The main restaurant, Mar dos Corais, is an airy dining space housed under a large palapa and can seat up to 84 guests for breakfast (from 7:30am to 10:30am), lunch (from 10:30am to 6:00pm), and dinner (from 6:00pm to 10:00pm). Basically, it carries on serving its delicious Brazilian and international cuisine all day long! The bar is open from 10:30am to 10:00pm, serving delicious tropical fruit juices as well as an unbeatable caipirinha! At lunchtime, you can't do much better than heading for the Pimenta Rosa, the bar restaurant on the beach. There, in a well ventilated straw hut on Beach 4, you can enjoy your meal right next to the water! It serves Brazilian and international cuisine à la carte from 10:00am to 6:00pm and can seat up to 100 diners if you include the outdoor terrace with comfortably cushioned wooden chairs.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The Pousada Villas dos Corais is found between Beach 3 and Beach 4 of Morro de Sao Paulo: a lagoon in a truly heavenly setting. However, at high tide the beach almost completely disappears, leaving very little room for the plastic deckchairs and giving the place a rather overcrowded feel. There are no showers but you can use the ones at the swimming pool. No parasols are provided either, which at least allows the area to retain its more natural look. Jutting out of the bay are some rocks and to the left you can see Morro de Sao Paolo lighthouse. The beach restaurant is on Beach 4, so you can have lunch with your feet practically in the water! If you wish to enjoy motorised water sports such as banana boating, you will have to head to Beach 1, and kite surfers can find the facilities they are looking for on Beach 2.

    To know

    The Pousada Villa dos Corais ('Corais' means 'Coral') boasts a fine location in Morro de Sao Paulo between Beach 3 and Beach 4, which are two of the finest on the whole island. This peaceful position is set back from the very lively touristic village of Morro de Sao Paulo, but a free Land Rover shuttle will take you to Beach 2, which is right in the middle of the action! Despite its name, the Villa dos Corais is more of a resort than a pousada, with its 40 guest rooms, the large swimming pool, a gym under an airy palapa roof, a hammam, a games room, table tennis, billiards, and table football, as well as tennis and beach volleyball courts. You certainly won't get bored! A total of 4 rooms have been adapted for guests with reduced mobility. A computer is at guests' disposal for free Internet access and free Wifi is also available throughout the establishment, including in the rooms..

      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!

      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.

      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.
