Parati, Ilha Grande and the Costa Verde: Sagu Mini Resort

Sagu Mini Resort

Italian-owned, Mediterranean-style retreat, Sagu Mini Resort is a 15-minute walk along a well-marked forest trail from the laid-back little beachfront town of Abraão. 

By no means is this the type of resort its name might imply, but a relaxed, secluded and unpretentious 9-room guesthouse overlooking the sea. It has attractive, fully equipped bedrooms, each with wooden floors and a balcony where you can while away lazy moments in a hammock facing the sea. They set you up each day with a good Brazilian breakfast and snacks are available at lunchtime. For your evening meal, you'll need to stroll into the village. The small sandy cove of Praia Biquinho is just a stone's throw away and the long, sandy Abrozinhos beach is within a few minutes' walk.

The hotel has lush grounds climbing up the hillside behind the buildings, where you can wander in tropical woodland. After exploring, relax in the hotel’s Japanese-style wooden hot tub or have a massage. The resort can organise all sorts of excursions and activities, including walks, sailing, scuba diving, boat trips and kayaking.

What our experts say

I loved it for its National Park, easy going ambience and the wonderful sea views which you get from the bedrooms and public areas. Everything is very tasteful.
