Toca da Coruja
Wonderfully romantic hotel at exquisite Praia da Pipa offering the chance to step into a magical little world of tropical gardens dotted with pools, sculpture and secluded individual bungalows.
Just on the edge of town, the blissful Toca da Coruja lets you enter a little world of its own. Enveloped in lush vegetation, the whole place exudes rustic luxury with an emphasis on harmony with nature.
Scattered throughout the exuberantly tropical grounds, accommodation is in individual villas whose billowing cotton curtains and breezy open plan layout create a sense of undisturbed romance. The deluxe bungalows are particularly magical, with a secluded open-air shower, a roll-top bath, a four-poster bed and lots of enchanting details in the décor and furnishings.
There are two beautiful, plant-fringed pools and a Jacuzzi, and a highly regarded restaurant offering fusion style cuisine using regional ingredients. By night, the atmosphere is transformed by firelight.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
I have seen some beautiful hotel rooms in my time, but our room at this hotel takes some beating. It was breathtaking (everyone who looks at the photo agrees). The hotel is again in an excellent location in town, close to local amenities and the beach. The food in the restaurant is outstanding - we didn't even bother to look elsewhere for dinner. Most of the staff do not speak English and so communication can be a problem, but there was one extremely helpful young man on reception who helped us with the online check-in for our return flights.CE,Barnet
A truly amazing hotel. The grounds and rooms were outstanding and the staff were unbelievably helpful and lovely. The pool was perfect for an afternoon swim and the beaches nearby were all deserted and beautiful.LM,London
