Refugio Mamangua

Paraty | Brazil

Small ecological boutique hotel located on the beach in Mamangua Fjord, Brazil. Sleep and wake up in full contact with nature, observe the canoes, boats and birds, talk with the kind locals, swim, paddle, dive and hike; these are some of the leisure options at this hideaway

Mamanguá is located in the District of Paraty – in the southeastern part of Rio de Janeiro state. It’s the only tropical fjord on the Brazilian coast, a greenish sea coast entrance that extends for 8 Km to the most well-preserved mangrove of the Ilha Grande Bay. Take a boat (45 minutes) or fiber bote (25 minutes) from the Paraty Mirim Beach.

Refugio Mamangua has ten suites with large windows and wooden decks as well as a central gazebo where breakfast and dinner are served. They offer a simple and comfortable infrastructure, and with an organic healthy cuisine. For lunch there are plenty of local restaurants,  accessed by canoe, or by foot, along a trail.

There are three types of suites: six yellow suites, two purple suites and two special suites: premium and deluxe. All suites have three beds, with gas water heaters, ceiling fans, suspended wooden decks with private balconies with hammocks. The yellow suites are located 20m from the sea. They have covered wooden balconies/decks, with hammock and mat for rest. Purple suites are located above, 100 meters from the sea, in the middle of the Atlantic rain forest.  The Premium and Deluxe suites are located close to the sea in an independent building. A beautiful two-storey house, made 100% with treated eucalyptus, suspended on stilts, with large windows and private decks, where you can observe the whole extension of Mamanguá. They have exclusive access to the sea through a wooden ladder. These suites are larger than the others and provide greater privacy.

Use the Canadian canoes to explore the Mamangua in the most traditional way – paddling! In Mamangua there is no electric power – a great opportunity for technological detoxification and for enjoying the starry nights, the rising of the sun and the light of the moon.
