Relaxed, secluded and unpretentious boutique beach hotel with just a handful of rooms, set amidst lush grounds overlooking the sea.

Italian-owned, Mediterranean-style retreat, Sagu Mini Resort is a 15-minute walk along a well-marked forest trail from the laid-back little beachfront town of Abraão. 

By no means is this the type of resort its name might imply, but a relaxed, secluded and unpretentious 9-room guesthouse overlooking the sea. It has attractive, fully equipped bedrooms, each with wooden floors and a balcony where you can while away lazy moments in a hammock facing the sea. They set you up each day with a good Brazilian breakfast and snacks are available at lunchtime. For your evening meal, you'll need to stroll into the village. The small sandy cove of Praia Biquinho is just a stone's throw away and the long, sandy Abrozinhos beach is within a few minutes' walk.

The hotel has lush grounds climbing up the hillside behind the buildings, where you can wander in tropical woodland. After exploring, relax in the hotel’s Japanese-style wooden hot tub or have a massage. The resort can organise all sorts of excursions and activities, including walks, sailing, scuba diving, boat trips and kayaking.

What our clients say

  • Most memorable experience: "Hard to say it was all wonderful. Looking for alligators in a minute boat in the dark with eyes peering at you from out of the reeds, took a bit of beating. Also the boat whizzing around under the falls was  very special. The guides did a great job and it was great not being in a large group. I can't speak highly enough of the whole trip."

    VM, Shoreham-by-Sea
  • Rio - the ultimate party city. The Pantanal - fascinating wildlife. Iguacu - Wow ! And the Andes - Incredible. We ran out of superlatives to describe what we were seeing.

    PM, Stamford Brook
  • All of it was memorable, the Hotel were the perfect choice and the guides were knowledgeable and very helpful. The Falls were breath-taking and listening to the falls and bird in the park in the morning was fantastic. Listening to the waves at Copacabana was great at night ad in the morning. They ensured we were checked in for our flights and willing to offer us guidance to ensure we have covered various experiences.

  • Where to start? The World Cup match in Salvador, the old town of Salvador itself, swimming with wild dolphins in Praia de Pipa, watching monkeys play at breakfast, piranha fishing then feeding caimans in the Pantanal, playing football on Copacabana beach, seeing Christ the Redeemer for the first time, dancing in Rio Sanarium, all the Brazilian people we met who were so friendly. The best holiday we have ever been on.

    LM, London
  • Most Memorable Moment?: We were lucky enough to have a major thunder storm overnight at the Iguazu falls and these were unbelievably spectacular the next day.  Also the Lencois Marahenas was utterly beautiful and quite different to anything else we saw.

    KT, Andover
  • Most memorable experience: "There are too many! looking down from Christ the Redeemer at sun set in Rio, using the local buses to get about town, sitting at an outdoor cafe on Ilha Grande and swimming in the natural pool outside of Paraty."
