Fernando de Noronha is a paradise island just off the coast of northern Brazil and is known for its turquoise sea, fine white beaches, and an abundance of incredible marine life. The island is expensive yet it’s pretty much guaranteed that this will be a trip of a lifetime and you will be talking about it for years to come. For an unforgettable stay, here are some of the top boutique hotels in Fernando de Noronha.
Located in one of the best parts of the Fernando de Noronha island, Pousada del Mares is a pretty boutique with white walls decorated with colorful art and ornaments. The hotel is surrounded by a peaceful garden filled with palm trees and home to local wild birds and butterflies. Cachorro Beach is just an eight-minute walk from the hotel and is a wonderful beach for soaking up the sun and snorkeling. Start the day with the buffet-style breakfast and ask at the reception about booking tours; the hotel can organize island excursions, hiking, and snorkeling trips.
Triboju is a truly unique boutique hotel in Fernando de Noronha with incredible style and tailor-made service. The hotel is made up of private bungalows, each with their own balconies, and come decorated in a tribal theme with warm, earthy colors and large ornaments on the wall. Treat yourself to a relaxing dip in your own private hot tub, soak up the sun next to the outdoor swimming pool, or take the 20-minute stroll to nearby Cachorro and Conceição beaches. For a romantic dinner date, the onsite restaurant serves up delicious international cuisine and regional specialties.
The name Pousada Maravilha literally translates to Wonderful Hotel which still doesn’t quite do justice to how exceptional this boutique on Fernando de Noronha truly is. The wooden outdoor decking next to the infinity pool provides ocean views of Noronha’s turquoise waters and the surrounding exotic vegetation. The luxurious rooms are decorated with dark wooden floors and furnishings with simple white drapes and four-poster beds. The rooms lead out onto a balcony with a hammock to relax and take in the views. The more superior (and expensive) rooms have their own private hot tub.
Pousada Solar dos Ventos is made up of eight spacious chalets that combine a rustic wooden setting with modern furnishings such as a huge double bed, a well-stocked minibar, and a private balcony with a hammock. Enjoy the buffet-style breakfast on the outdoor terrace while taking in the ocean views and Fernando de Noronha’s extraordinary landscapes. This stunning boutique hotel is just a short walk from Sueste Bay, which is known as a great snorkeling spot for wildlife watching.
One of the highlights at Pousada da Morena is the infinity pool that overlooks Fernando de Noronha’s crystal clear ocean and its rocky peaks in the background. Around the pool are comfortable loungers and palm trees that create a peaceful setting to sunbathe and enjoy the natural surroundings. The rooms are decorated in a modern style with dark furnishings and white walls and bed linen. The buffet-style breakfast served includes bread, pastries, cakes, and tropical fruits among many other items and is worth waking up for. For excursions and island activities, the reception can organize these for you.
The Teju-Açu Ecopousada in Fernando de Noronha has all the right features for an unforgettable trip. The rooms are decorated in warm, earthy tones and set inside spacious bungalows, each with a private terrace and a hammock. Surrounding the bungalows are lush green vegetation, palm trees, and dozens of species of birds. This boutique hotel also provides surf classes and yoga sessions and you can also book boat trips, on-site massages, hikes, and diving classes through reception. For a fancy dining experience, head to Teju-Açu’s restaurant which serves fresh fish and plenty of seafood options. It’s expensive (around $2,000 a night or more depending on when you go) yet if money isn’t an issue, Teju-Açu Ecopousada promises a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The Pousada Mar Aberto is a charming little boutique in Fernando de Noronha that is just a short walk from Arraial d’Ajuda’s Mucugê beach, a great spot for sunbathing and snorkeling.
