Pousada Picinguaba, Brazil
Pousada Picinguaba is located in the tiny fishing village of Picinguaba, halfway between Rio and São Paulo. The ultimate getaway, it's close to a picture-perfect beach and set on the edge of unspoilt Atlantic rainforest, beneath tropical mountain peaks. Visit deserted islands on the hotel's schooner, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, take surfing lessons and even kayak into the jungle to swim under waterfalls. Afterwards, watch giant blue butterflies and brightly-coloured hummingbirds from the pool terrace, then dine on fresh fish at candle-lit tables.
Rate: Rooms from £238 per night, based on 2 sharing on a half-board basis (breakfast and dinner).
