- Hidden away on the mountainous island of Fernando de Noronha where dolphins and sea turtles outnumber visitors
Pousada Maravilha's five posh bungalows and three luxury apartments offer unobstructed views of dramatic sea cliffs and volcanic rock formations rising out of the emerald waters of Baía do Sueste, the horseshoe-shaped home of a marine turtle nursery. The warm seas are perfect for sailing, diving, snorkelling and swimming. There is also excellent scuba diving nearby.
Designed by acclaimed architect Thiago Bernardes, this unique, sustainable pousada combines rusticity and comfort, and features an excellent restaurant, infinity pool and spa. In 2009, Condé Nast Johansens named Maravilha the "Best Small Hotel in South America".
