Toque Toque (or Tap Tap, depending on where you're from) is about as far away from the hectic yet beautiful chaos of any Brazilian metropolis. It's a tiny haven in the middle of lush, relatively uninhabited nature reserves, serving as home to this spirited boutique hotel so remote that you'd find it hard to believe Sao Paulo is a mere 3 hours away. 10 rooms in the middle of 17,500 square meters of landscape fits quite comfortably as you'd well imagine. And here, you'll find dirt roads, not paved- the artesenal work of caiçaras fishermen, not commercial boats nor yachts trawling the shoreline...and total, complete privacy in an ultra-romantic setting.

Couples will dig the startling views, the private hot tubs designed for deliciously sublime baths, the seclusion of it all. Eco-friendly travelers will dig the owners' commitment to the Earth- no trees were harmed in the construction of this hotel, water here is collected from a waterfall, and the only energy here is solar powered. There's even a nutritionist and spa therapist on property to help restore your balance.
Travel the week of 23-30 Jun and be treated to the seductive sounds of phenomenal Brazilian jazz artists that will heat up the sultry nights on the beach with their soulful sounds and blissful beats. Ilha de Toque Toque's 2nd annual Jazz Festival. Check out the website for more info at
