Pousada Santa Martha das Pedras Ubatuba Reviews
Lovely B&B between Paraty and Ubatuba - Beach and Rainforest Mar 26, 2013
Pousada Santa Martha das Pedras is a great find, the place to stay in lovely fisherman's village Picinguaba.
The region is very green and unspoilt, very little tourism in offseason months. Plenty of white sandy beaches without a soul to be found and lush rainforest covering the Serra do Mar hills.
While technically part of the borough of Ubatuba, Picinguaba is actually just 30 km from Paraty, the must-see colonial gem on Rio State coast.
Accomodation in Paraty can run pretty expensive and beaches are scarce (unless you take a boat to the islands) so we chose to stay in Picinguaba last time we were there and didn't regret it.
Picinguaba bay is picture-card perfect, a beautiful half moon dotted by fishing boats and anchored by the verdant hill where Pousada Santa Martha das Pedras is located.
The B&B was just perfect, managed with a great deal of attention to detail and loving care.
The architecture was gorgeous, with oriental touches and very airy rooms. Inside you'll find large rooms, with elegant but understated decoration, with lots of antiques and ceramic sculptures made by Antônio, the owner. All rooms come with a huge private balcony where you can relax after the beach looking at the rainforest and hearing the ocean break a few meters away.
Nights in Pousada Santa Martha das Pedras are a feast for your ears too. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and marveling at just how beautiful the nature around me sounded, with the sound of the ocean in the backdrop.
Breakfast was fantastic, freshly baked pão de queijo and loaves, banana tarts, lots of fruit and good Brazilian coffee. And Antonio really made us feel at home while we were there, he is a sweet gentleman, so hospitable and kind and his artwork is also very beautiful.
Bottomline: a great place to stay if you're traveling along Rio-Santos highway.
