Resort Description

Ponta Beach Guest House is an intimate, rustic 4 star guest house overlooking the Ocean in Ponta Do Ouro.

The local marine environment is a haven for nesting turtles. Reef fish, manta rays, sharks, whale sharks and humpback whales are seen off this coastline every year. 

The guesthouse is set at the top of a primary vegetated beach dune. The balcony on the first floor offers panoramic views of the sunrise over the waves. Take the private pathway down to the beach 80 meters away. 

Each of the 6 air-conditioned guestrooms offers access to the peaceful gardens. The decking area comes with table, chairs and a gas BBQ, perfect for enjoying open air meals with a view. 

The communal kitchen is outfitted with crockery, pots, pans and basic white goods. Nearby the market is stocked with produce including local vegetables and freshly baked bread.
