An Exclusive Journey of Discovery and Adventure at Brazil's Most Unique Sites

Pousada Teju Açu ("Teju" bungalow on ground floor)

  • Teju Açu is an upscale lodge on Fernando de Noronha island

Pousada Teju-Açu lodge on Fernando de Noronha island has been featured by National Geographic Travel, Condé Nast Travel and The New York Times.

This lodge has 12 chalets and features a restaurant (which grows some of its own vegetables) and a small outdoor pool.

As water on the island is scarce and brought by boat from mainland, this and many other lodges don’t have laundry service.

Although there is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, Internet service on the island is slow and not always available. Mobile phone coverage is also not very reliable on the island.

Our Lodging Categorization Standards

Why have we devised our own lodging classification standards?

Brazilian hotels are often categorized using stars, but with different criteria from those used internationally. These criteria are sometimes abused or outdated and therefore they don't accurately represent neither reality nor international standards.

Read below to learn about our lodging categories*
Image
COMFORT CATEGORY LODGING*

Comfort Lodges in the Amazon Jungle or the Pantanal: being in remote locations, rooms are basic, rustic and rather small. There is no TV in the room and Internet service is available only in the lobby area. Still, they have a private bathroom with a hot water shower and air conditioning.

Comfort Lodges in Fernando de Noronha island: the island's ecosystem is strictly guarded, so there are no large-scale hotels, only lodges. Access to some rooms may require climbing stairs, and Internet service is rather unreliable throughout the island. All rooms have air conditioning, cable TV and mini-bar. They generally don't have in-room safe boxes.

Comfort hotels in all other destinations: nice hotels in good locations, with comfortable rooms including private bathroom, cable TV, phone in room and usually mini bar, internet access, a restaurant and in some destinations also a gym.

DELUXE CATEGORY LODGING*

Deluxe Lodges in the Amazon Jungle: rooms are somewhat larger than Comfort rooms, they are better termed 'Comfort Plus' accommodations. in the Pantanal: rooms, while somewhat rustic, are spacious 2-room suites. At both destinations, Internet service is only available in the reception area, and it may not always work well.

Deluxe Lodges in Fernando de Noronha Island: the lodging standards on the island are inferior to those in large cities, so for our "Deluxe" options we have included what we rate as "Comfort Plus" lodges. Rooms are generally a larger than in the Comfort category. Common areas and furnishings are nicer throughout the lodge than in Comfort category lodges.

Deluxe hotels in all other destinations: A perfect choice for travelers who are looking for a hotel with more facilities and room amenities. Most deluxe category hotels have also spa facilities and a more luxurious decorative style.

UNIQUE & EXCLUSIVE CATEGORY LODGING*

On Fernando de Noronha Island these lodges are still rustic, but the rooms are quite large and the decor and furnishings throughout the lodge can be quite sophisticated for the island, making these "Unique" lodges far more upscale than our "Comfort Plus" options.
