Pousada Toca da Coruja Pipa
This maintained patch of woods is located, somewhat incongruously, and the primary strip of the beach resort of Pipa. Guests are immersed in a lush, quiet Eden, while using the ease of Pipa’s numerous restaurants and bars in the end of the driveway.
Style & personality
Originally catering to customers, this was among the first resorts to open in Pipa back in 1991, once the street outside was just a sandy trail and there wasn’t any electricity. The hotel slowly enlarged, as did the hotel, however, it remains an extremely private refuge, together with bungalows set besides each other but connected by elevated walkways. A quiet stroll is all that is necessary to identify the monkeys, green maned woods lizards and neon-pink dragonflies which produce the grounds their property.
Service & amenities
Non-intrusive and useful although not necessarily available instantly. Security guards patrol the woods paths at nighttime.
Twelve luxury bungalows are scattered through the woods, whereas eight ‘unique’ bungalows occupy a two-storey construction. Each is a trove of reconditioned furniture, from cupboards to trunks. The luxury choices have wrap-around verandas with hammocks and rocking chairs for sitting and staring up in the blossom, there is also ample wooden shutters and curtains, plus a rainforest shower area that opens onto an open-air hydro massage bathtub. The ‘unique’ bungalows have smaller bathrooms, with a selection of a balcony or terrace. There are 3 secluded pools, a rustic candlelit pub and a thatched dining space, which will be open-sided to capture fresh through breezes.
Food & beverage
Mangoes were provided complete for breakfast and there was a log fire over which eggs and crepes were cooked. Like I spooned honey onto my toast, hummingbirds supped from strategically placed claws over the table. The dinner menu includes well-presented north eastern freshwater dishes, with an emphasis on fish and organic veggies in the garden.
Value for cash
The ‘unique’, more affordable bungalows are especially excellent value since they have a similar texture to the luxury bungalows, but with no veranda and at a more compact area. A unique space for 2 begins at #157 per evening. Free Wi-Fi.
