The most famous beach in Santa Catarina that is not on Florianopolis comprises of paths connecting log cabins, and boutique hotels all leading down to the impressive beach, Praia do Rosa. Whether you are solo, a couple, family, or travelling in a pack of wave seekers, here you will find the best and most unique accommodation to call your temporary home.
Eco resort no longer means spending your evenings by candlelight, as this resort is both eco friendly, and luxurious. A Hawaiian style beach home with all-natural wood, tiles, and rock work from the rooms, to the outdoor patio which provides a tantalizing glimpse of the ocean over the swaying palm trees. You can opt for the modern style accommodation or the more traditional rustic beach cabin style.
A short stroll from the beach, Pousada Wakai sits on a large plot which gives you privacy from the dusty roads connecting Praia do Rosa and Ibiraquera, and also an outdoor area to enjoy the weather in the morning before the beach, or in the afternoon after a day in the ocean. A great option for a family getaway, or a large group of travellers as there are options to accomodate up to 15 guests.
For those who truly value their privacy as a necessity for a relaxing getaway, your wooden studio in the hills will have you living happily as a Lost Boy from Peter Pan. The natural wood floor creaks slightly under your feet as you walk to your window overlooking the jungle below, and with an outdoor pool providing another gorgeous view, leaving the property to walk to the beach will be the biggest decision you will make all day.
Walk barefoot across the tickling grass and find – sitting outside your entrance to your own private cabin – a hammock strung across two beams, signifying pure relaxation, something Praia do Rosa is all about. Inside, your spacious well-equipped kitchen branches off into the private rooms and modern bathroom, a perfect fit for travelling couples or families with grown up kids.
One of the best options closest to the beach, you can get a view of the rolling waves from your bedroom, jacuzzi, or the hammock on your balcony where you might, accidentally spend the night. The traditional, yet modern hotel is situated behind the Laguna de Meio so your view of the sparkling lake, and the rippling ocean could simply not be better.
The Pink and Cinnamon Pousada carries those colours throughout, which is a welcome rest for the eyes from the constant bright sun just outside the door. The fresh, cool brick building is surrounded on each side, and covered from above by gorgeous dense jungle, gjving a calming sense of privacy when you are relaxing here. It is just a short walk from the beach and lagoon.
A complex and intriguing network of walkways and buildings connect the property of Pousada Gopak which has one of the most unique and appealing rustic, wooden decors, both inside the rooms and outside on the patios, in all of Praia do Rosa. Odd shaped windows, and non parallel beams and construction gives it a distinguished character that says, perfection is not always perfect.
