Feels like our own gorgeous chalet - in the middle of Mata Atlantica

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2021
We just came back from our second stay at Tankamana in less than two months. I'm Brazilian and live in Rio, and I find Tankamana maybe the best option for a short break from the city - a super convenient 2-hours drive to find refuge in this gorgeous nature on the tropical Mata Atlantica. After having spent a couple of days end of December at this beautiful chalet in the middle of nature, we needed to come back the minute we checked out.

This time we stayed at the chalé Tanka, their best suite/chalét - and were enchanted. A spacious, luxurious chalé with two fireplaces, an immense modern hot tub, an outdoor shower and a huge terrace, totally secluded from all other chalets and facilities. Everything in perfect privacy, yet close to the swimming pool and the main restaurant.

We can't forget how welcomed we were by the excellent staff and their dedication to get out of their way to make guests feel at home and taken care of all your needs and wishes.

Radamés, the main manager, is always present and ready to do anything to make all guests happy - e he was perfect. Everyone there is really eager to make you happy, like Taís and Maria ( on reception) and Bruno in the restaurant, congrats.

We can't forget the absolutely delicious breakfast! Everything you could ask for, with Brazilian delicacies and home made breads and jellies, among so many delicious treats ( like the “pão de queijo” Waffle as well as the mini fruit-pancakes.)

Oh, and for the movie lovers, there’s also a private Cinema Room in the main building that you can rent, enjoy some movie classics and munch popcorn.

We can't wait to be back.
Date of stay: January 2021
Room Tip: Tanka suite is amazing, all other chalets looks great as well.

A perfect escape for the weekend! Great staff, delicious breakfast and excellent room! And if you want more privacy, you have an outstanding room service! If it’s sunny, you can enjoy the pool area and have some drinks and appetizers or have lunch by the pool.

Flawless. Impecable. Great service and very comfortable rooms. The place is very quiet and charming. The food is also great. The room is spacious, with a double hot tube and very comfortable bed. I highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I booked the Chalé Tanka room (the finest room in the hotel) and had very high expectations. I have to say Tankamana exceeded our expectations. The room was absolutely impeccable, beautiful and nicely prepared. Staff went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant, met all our requests and were super flexible with everything. More than just a hotel, Tankamana was an experience. Totally recommend it.

We had great and lovely times in this place. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room (we stayed in the special chalet with hot tube) was incredibly well organized and beautiful. Congratulations for the quality of the furniture. The price is not so cheap but some moments in this place was priceless.

Once at the place, all the effort getting there is forgotten and you can really enjoy it. Beautiful, peaceful, wonderful food and service. Breakfast is amazing, as is the restaurant (ask for the smoked trout entree).
