An 18th century townhouse painstakingly restored and designed, this beautiful guest house is a balance of charm, coziness and modernity. Each day, ankle-deep tidal waters flood the city, in order to clean its cobblestoned streets. Every guest at Casa Turquesa is issued a pair of Havaiana flip flops at check in, to navigate the streets like a local.

Originally catering to surfers, this was one of the first hotels to open in Pipa back in 1991, when the road outside was just a sandy track and there was no electricity. The hotel gradually expanded, as did the resort, but it remains a very private refuge, with bungalows set apart from each other but connected by raised walkways. A quiet stroll is all that’s required to spot the monkeys, green maned forest lizards and neon-pink dragonflies that make the grounds their home.
Kilombo Villas & Spa is an eco-conscious escape at the edge of one of the most secluded coastal villages in Brazil.
