History
This pousada began when Rene, an Australia woman with a vision, moved to Ilha Grande. She purchased the place from the previous owner and drastically went to work. Her vision was to create a breathtaking, yet sustainable place for people to come and stay. Rene, who lives on the property, found her staff and eagerly went to work to watch her dreams turn into a reality. As a woman who grew up in a household of sustainability and practiced safe environmental methods, she took her knowledge, lessons and upbringing and applied them to her business. Through all of her hard work and dedication, visitors are able to stay in an environmentally friendly pousada where sustainability is always on the forefront.

The chalets are built in a rustic, ecologically friendly style, designed to be in harmony with the vibrancy of the surrounding nature. Whether during the day, or by night, the chalets provide a relaxing, cozy and comfortable environment.

Sustainable features
Pousada Aratinga has aworkforce comprised of island locals, energy efficient light bulbs and all wood work and timber is certified environmentally efficient. Also, a large compost with worms feed on waste matter and produce rich and dense soil for planting. All gardens, walkways and structures were created from materials that were already on the property. Food comes from the gardens and everything is recycled. Items that cannot be recycled and placed in the compost are sold to locals who then take the items to the main land for recycling.

Having the wonderful experience of meeting Rene, I can say that the Pousada Aratinga is a magnificent place. Her drive, dedication and work ethic is extremely admirable and empowering. She has put a lot of hard work into the place and she loves what she does. She works day in and day out to give customers a great experience all without compromising the successful sustainability practices she has learned over the years.

Although I did not stay here, I had a chance to interview Rene about the sustainable features of her pousada. She does a great amount of things to keep her business sustainable- something she learned from her mother growing up in Australia. From the worm compost, the the way she asks her guest to manage their waste- her actions do not go unnoticed! People return year after year to her lovely Pousada and get a taste of green! You can find a list of her practices in every room and at the front desk as well as a printable copy of it. Her work has inspired many around her, especially me. I recommend that you stay here or even visit to chat with the lovable, friendly Rene!!!

Having had the chance to personally meet Rene I can honestly say that Pousada Aratinga is a very environmentally devoted sustainable business. She takes everything about the environment and improving it very seriously, she teaches all her guests about her goal for the hotel and the Island to help inspire them to want to participate in sustainable acts like she has been doing since she moved from Australia to Ilha Grande. She loves what she does and is one of the most dedicated people I've ever met. She has a dream and she'll stop at nothing to achieve it, she inspired me and I am certain she has inspired every other patron that has entered her facility. - Arielle

Pousada Aratinga and its owner, Rene, display the absolute meaning of sustainability! Rene opened the Pousada with the intention to develop a self sufficient location where people can truly experience and enjoy the culture of Ilha Grande. Learning the importance of sustainability from her mother in Australia, Rene is devoted to promoting sustainable acts that are not only good for the environment, but preserve the culture of Brazil. If you want a one of a kind experience at a beautiful Pousada, visit Rene at Pousada Aratinga! -Danielle C
