Pousada Guarana a place of quiet and beauty

For the past ten years we have worked hard to create a place for our guests to get away from the stresses of daily life. For others, to have a place to relax and recharge after visiting the mega-cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Our hotel fits perfectly for couples, small groups of friends and honeymooners. Here you will find many quiet corners to chat, read or relax at the pool surrounded by lush gardens and vibrant colored hummingbirds. Or perhaps, take a dip in the pool, get an in-house massage or meditate in our yoga room. There will likely be a furry friend to keep you company as well should you desire.

We want our guests to have the best experience possible, and we are here to help as much as you need.

Important things to know about our hotel
