Beaches of the northeast: Villa Guaiamu

Villa Guaiamu

This simple, private and very tranquil Villa Guaiamu is perfect for those who fancy having a lively Brazilian beach town on their doorstep, but with the option to escape the hustle and bustle by secluding themselves away in a quiet haven of tropical palms whenever they wish. Vila Guiaiamú was one of the first hotels to be built in the area, and while the village and beaches around it have changed over the years this laid-back guesthouse retains the sleepy island feel that first drew tourists to Morro de São Paulo.

The hotel is located on the island's 'Third' beach, part of a string of bays that become quieter and less developed the further along you go. The humble but spacious rooms are scattered throughout expansive grounds, and it is easy to forget you are anywhere near the busy bars and restaurants that are in fact just a short stroll away. These grounds are liberally dotted with towering coconut trees, lending shade and privacy, and are a nature reserve for the protection of the distinctive and rather shy blue land crabs native to the area. Watching them scuttle about as you laze in a hammock on the porch is certainly part of the enjoyment here, as are the unspoilt natural surroundings and the slow-paced rhythm of days spent doing little but relaxing.
