Very enjoyable stay with both the manager and his assistant being extremely helpful when we needed to make some changes to our agenda. Rooms are a little small but other than this quite a nice place to stay on this wonderful island.

The Pousada is perfectly located far enough from the village (max 10 minutes walk) to give you access to the services and at the same time enjoy the quiet and serene side of Ilha Grande. Yann has been a great help with recommendations and flexibility and we cannot commend this place enough!

This is a lovely pousada with nice staff who genuinely seem to want to make your stay better (Yan who runs the place is a friendly, helpful guy who will help you out with whatever you need and seems to speak at least three languages). He is always willing to explain about the various beaches, how to get there, and the tour options etc.

In terms of benefits here (apart from the knowledgeable staff), the rooms are fantastic - clean, nicely designed, good bathrooms/showers etc. - but the real clincher is the balconies on the rooms with sea views. It's definitely worth paying the extra cash, they are amazing, have hammocks for you to chill out in and the vista is just beautiful. Book as early as you can, as there are only four, and ask for a sea view (will upload a photo here so you get an idea). We stayed in both sea-view rooms and non-sea view rooms and although the other room was nice, the sea view was well worth the extra dosh.

The location is also a big plus. Naturalia is set back, slightly away from the main part of town and to get to it, you need to walk along the beach (lovely at night, obviously) and then walk up a path for about a minute or so. This is what makes the view so lovely and is why it's not noisy at all. Bliss.

Finally, it has wifi in the eating area that comes and goes - but don't bother, disconnect yourself, if you really care, get a sea view room where the wifi will work in your room too - and the breakfast was fresh fruit every day, mixed juices, coffee, tea etc. and then the usual cheese, ham, bread, rolls, cakes etc. - very good.

Also recommend Cafe do Mar around the corner for drinks and cocktails... we could've gone there every night of the holiday. They even remember what you drank the night before... Again, like Naturalia, it's set away from the main town, which is excellent. Bands now and again, BBQs one or two times a week and tables right on the sand in front of the sea. Idyllic. Oh, and if there is a blackout on the island, they have a generator so they can keep serving etc. (Top tip!)

Be aware if you're coming to Ilha Grande that blackouts are relatively common, plan to disconnect yourself and get away to the beaches on the other side of the island that are deserted and just stunning. Wish I was still there!

Many thanks to Yan and his gang basically, their pousada and help made our stay much better. Highly, highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the front four rooms, sea view, and pay the little extra.

We stayed in the Pousada for a couple of nights during our time on the island. It was a lovely stay, typified by the friendly staff who were able to give lots of tips for exploring the island and hiking to the beaches. The room we had was a amazing, giving great views over the bay with all of the boats. Highly recommended, though I would suggest to book well in advance as the room availability meant we could only stay for a few nights...

Room Tip: Book one with a view over the bay to get the best view. The higher up the hill the better.

My partner and I had a brief visit at the end of January.
The welcome was fantastic; out room was spotless with beautiful views.
The pousada is situated in a perfect position close to the beach and a couple of (quiet!!) but lovely restaurant / bars.
Breakfast was fresh and tasty.
All the staff were extremely friendly, and the owner was knowledgable and approachable and gave us fantastic advice about how best to spend our very limited time on the island.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: erm, ask for a sea view.

We had a wonderful stay in Pousada Naturalia - it was early on in our trip around South America - we needed to relax a little and we were certainly able to do this in the Pousada Naturalia. We found Lauren, the owner, very accommodating, knowledgable and supportive. We would certainly like to recommend this pousada highly.
