There goes five months of quarantine. Who would have guessed that we would be isolated for so long, right? Lucky for those who took advantage of this time to take on a new look, as was the case of Pousada Tankamana, in the state of Rio de Janeiro. If it was already one of the darlings of the Serra Fluminense, now that it has reopened in new, more sophisticated clothes, it is even more inviting.
Tankamana is located in the Cuiabá Valley, 75 kilometers from Rio, 20 minutes from downtown Itaipava. It is one of those perfect places to renew your energy and enjoy days of great tranquility in contact with the exuberant nature of the Atlantic Forest. Fundamental to maintaining physical and mental health after the madness of this compulsory confinement caused by the coronavirus. Pousada Takamana has only 16 rustic-romantic style accommodations. Here is the tip for those who want a lot of privacy: choose the Tanka chalet. It is further away and has two balconies with a hammocks, where you can even order a dinner for two.
It is worth remembering that gastronomy is one of the highlights of Tankamana. Breakfast can be ordered at any time of the day and at anywhere you prefer. Wonderful! In addition, the products used in the meals come directly from the organic garden of the pousada in the best farm to table style. And do you know what is the greatest treat offered to guests? A basket full of local products is gifted upon your exit. How not to love?
If you want to enjoy the region around the hotel, know that Itaipava is less than 15 kilometers away with its many restaurants and shops, and the imperial city of Petrópolis is 32. There is no shortage of things to do. Just bring good company.
I hope you are all well.
XoXo and see you next Tuesday.
