Pousada Naturalia


Pousada Naturalia is situated within Ilha Grande’s main settlement, Abraão village, just off the coast between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The town centre and a stunning white sand beach are both a short walk away. The pousada’s owners are very environmentally conscious, using solar heating for the water supply to 8 of the rooms and sustainable sources of timber and stone for the construction of the buildings.

There are 4 double rooms, 4 triple rooms and 4 larger rooms capable of accommodating 4 people each. All have an en suite bathroom, air- conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar, safety deposit box and small private verandah with hammocks. All are positioned for great views towards the beautiful turquoise sea.

The helpful, bilingual owner will readily provide information and tips on where to visit and what to do on the island.

Pousada Naturalia is in an excellent location for convenient exploration of the lovely island which possesses many secluded beaches for swimming and snorkelling and miles of pristine Atlantic rainforest to explore.


En suite air-conditioned rooms, with ceiling fans, mini bar, private veranda and hammocks, and a safe in the rooms. Wi-Fi is available in the dining room and reception area.

Optional Activities

Visit some of Ilha Grande's 107 beaches, explore trails through the rainforest and take sea-kayaking excursions.

Absolutely loved everything about the Jaguar Research Centre. The tented accommodation was great and good fun. The cook was large and jolly and looked after T well- the food was excellent here, and she had the most difficult conditions to contend with… 4 jaguar sightings. The first was at night, a fisherman called in so we took off down the river at brakeneck speed in the dark, found the other boats, and saw ‘Hugo’. The other 3 were in daylight… the highlight was following Mrs Butterfly hunting along the river bed. Had some good otter sightings. Very good boatman.
