Beauty gave us the incentive to work hard to become the first hotel in all of Brazil to be eco certified by Copenhagen-based Green Key. We are doing all we can to protect our view so that many more generations of guests can appreciate it. One of the many reasons Green Key certified Baia do Joao as an eco hotel was that the furnishings inside are all produced with sustainable materials, and many were made locally. The pousada is owned by an American/Brazilian couple who try to make it easy for international travelers to learn about Buzios and Brazil. We offer a complimentary, made-to-order, full breakfast with fresh fruits and juices, breads, cakes, jams, eggs, and tapioca. Locally purchased food and organic items are noted on the breakfast buffet. We also offer free tea and coffee in the reception area with cakes and cookies from 3-5PM.
Baia do João is the only pousada on João Fernandes with an unobstructed, direct view of the full Atlantic Ocean bay and the surrounding islands. The only similar view is the free lookout point below our hotel that the town of Buzios built to let tourists enjoy Joao Fernandes. There, tourists have to jump out of their cars and take quick selfies, while Baia do Joao guests can sit on loungers or at pub tables enjoying the same view in peace and for as long as they like — with a cocktail and a pool to swim in. With more time, our guests can appreciate the unique texture of the ocean below as the wind blows across the bay and the current comes towards the beach in a different direction creating, beautiful white ripples of surf throughout the bay that crash into rocky islands covered in lush green vegetation. While enjoying time in one of the few newer pousadas in Buzios having finished a complete renovation at the end of 2019.
All mattresses were replaced during the renovation with high-end mattresses and organic pillows to create a peaceful sleeping experience. All the rooms have remodeled bathrooms with new tile; fixtures; water efficient toilets, sinks and showers; and many sustainable decorative touches made of wood and bamboo. All rooms have new 42-inch, smart TV’s and stocked mini bars that are all rated as highly energy efficient. Each room has a unique painting of a different beach in Buzios done by a local artist. If it is too hot for fans and ocean breezes to cool the rooms, they each have new air conditioning units that are rated as highly energy efficient. Our Sunset Bar in the main lobby and pool area features a 100-inch movie screen and projector that can show the biggest sporting events and movies, and they can be seen clearly from outside at the pool while getting a suntan. We also serve pub style food at the bar.
