Reviewed 23 November 2016 via mobile

We arrived in IIha Grande island by boat, this is a lovely simple pousada high up on the hillside, surrounded by rain forest Forna and flora.
Our room was basic, but did have the advantage of a balcony with sea views and the mountains in the distance.
It is far enough away from the small town not to be disturbed by music from local venues, to enable you to have a good night sleep.
The manager and his partner were very pleasant, helpful and good at pointing out the various attractions, restaurants and local knowledge. They speak good English, French and Portuguese, they had excellent customer service.
I can highly recommend this pousada.

This poussada is very friendly and relaxed. It gives you the feeling that you are in the middle of the jungle, although the village is at 5 minutes walk. Diego, the manager received us very friendly and provided us with relevant information about the hotel, the village and sites to see on the island. The rooms and are well desinged and the balconies give a stunning view over the bay, while the sounds of the jungle can be heard. The breakfast is lovely. The best restaurants of the village are a few hundred meters away. One point of attention may be the fact that Wifi was only available in the restaurant, but this also has its attractive side: people gathering at the free tea and coffee times in the afternoons. We did two trails that led us through the rain forrest. Together it gave us an unforgettable experience.

We loved our short time at this pousada. The views over the bay are just magical. Their are hammocks you can put up on the balcony and then just relax, enjoy the view and have a drink. The staff there are so helpful - seriously the friendliest, most knowledgeable and helpful people we encountered on our month long trip around South America.

It's about a 10min walk from town along the beach - I don't recommend taking much luggage to ilha grande - you won't need it, and it's hard to carry along the beach unless you pay a porter.

This pousada is just amazing, it's not like a 5 star hotel but more like a boutique bed and breakfast/guest house. We felt more relaxed here than any other place we stayed (inc 5* resorts, big chain hotels etc).

Definitely recommend this place

My family and I stayed at Pousada Naturalia for a week and we had a wonderful time! The rooms are nice and had really nice balconies. The wifi is not working in the rooms and is only decent in the common area. The breakfast is amazing! New fresh juices everyday, fresh fruits, yoghurt, eggs, bread etc. The owner and his staff are the sweetest! Upon arriving you get a full introduction to the island and they are more than happy to help arrange trips or activities. I would definitely stay here again!

We decided to end our trip round Brazil with a few nights in Ilha Grande and stayed at the Pousada Naturalia which we found on Trip Advisor.

This is a lovely place with great views and wildlife. Lots of Birds and Monkeys around. The owners are lovely and really made us feel welcome and knowledge about the area.

We came here to do some trekking on our own and most of the trip before had been with guides. Had a great time walking during the day lots of little beaches with noone on.

There are some lovely restaurants on the beach for evening and during the day and had some great food & cocktails.

The area has a lovely atmosphere and feels safe to walk around.

Breakfast at the Pousada was lovely - fresh handmade juices - wide choice of fruit and breads.

I am so glad we ended our stay here it was a fantastic way to end our trip around Brazil.

Tip - the hotel is a little way from the harbour so I would try and catch a porter to help with your luggage as trying to wheel your suitcase though sand is not easy. They will help you for a small charge. Lucky one saw us struggling and came over to offer to help.
