Overlooking the magnificent Toque Toque Grande Beach and surrounded by lush coastal rainforest, the Ilha de Toque Toque hotel is a thoroughly charming couples-only eco retreat.
Though the hotel is romantic, intimate, and decidedly idyllic it is, above all, sustainable. Indeed, for the owners, Edson and Renata, sustainability is a way of life. Most of the hotel’s water is captured from a waterfall, treated at the hotel, and then heated by solar power. Reclaimed wood is used wherever possible, and eco bricks were used in the construction of the buildings.
Thankfully, none of this is done at the cost of luxury. In fact, the hotel successfully manages to embody true 'barefoot luxury' offering the comfort of a private holiday home with the service of a fine hotel.
With its secluded location, proximity to stunning beaches and lovely spa facilities, it’s hard to imagine a more romantic place to stay than Ilha de Toque Toque.
The hotel serves a complimentary tea of mini cakes and petit fours, and lunch and dinner are served in the rustic and welcoming restaurant with beautiful sea views. Dishes are inspired by the local cuisine - some of our favourites include the sole fish ceviche and grilled cambucu fish.
Most of the 13 simple but charming suites have spectacular views of the ocean and a hammock on a decked balcony. The pricier suites come equipped with a private sauna, whilst many others offer the added treat of a hot tub or plunge pool.
For a lazy afternoon in, arrange to have a massage at the hotel, lounge by the outdoor pool, or head to the sauna. Alternatively, for a more active day out, walk to the nearby beach to go fishing, diving or snorkelling, go trekking in the beautiful surrounding coastal rainforest, or hire some mountain bikes to explore the stunning scenery.
