Pousada Maravilha: a picture-perfect postcard
Everything at Pousada Maravilha frames the view: the vanishing pool, the wide balconies in each of the eight accommodations (with hot tubs and hammocks) and the spectacular dining area, which houses one of Noronha’s best restaurants. No matter where you stand, the Sueste is always in view. When night falls, guests can enjoy the indulgences of the bungalows and apartments, like bed sheets of Egyptian cotton and cable TV with over 100 channels. The charming multi-brand boutique rounds out the hotel’s offerings.
Our staff consists of more than 40 employees, an average of five per room. They ensure that service at Pousada Maravilha is impeccable yet relaxed. Among the hotel’s exclusive services are the new spa and a number of excursions tailored to meet the personal needs of guests who wish to experience Noronha the way the island deserves.
The search for environmental balance is part of the daily routine at Pousada Maravilha, especially considering the importance of an ecosystem like that of Fernando de Noronha. This consciousness begins with the hotel’s design, which architect Thiago Bernardes has seamlessly integrated into the natural surroundings. The entire complex uses reforested wood and other natural raw materials.
The hotel’s care with the island is also evident in how it captures and uses rainwater, separates solid waste, filters hot tub water prior to draining, uses solar energy, cultivates an organic garden and uses native species throughout the landscaped grounds. All of this only works in practice thanks to investments in training the hotel’s staff and local community.
Thanks to these and other efforts, Pousada Maravilha has already received a number of awards and mentions in top travel publications:
