Sabambugi is well described as a refuge. Its isolated location and verdant surroundings leave one feeling at peace, at one with the environment. The view is unmatchable - I had the delight of enjoying sunrise in the morning and moonrise at night during my stay - I advise you take a look at the lunar calendar before you book your dates!
Breakfast was a particular highlight for me. Liberato serves plate after plate after plate, home-made cakes and breads, pao de queijo, tapioca, sweet and succulent fruits, cheeses, spreads, juice, coffee. The table groans under the weight of the food! Everything is home-made with care and much love. Liberato is amazing in the kitchen; he revels in his guests' pleasure, and is delighted by their enjoyment!
After a time with writer's block, I discovered that Sabambugi inspired me to put pen to paper. I am really pleased with what I created there. The locak of interference from WiFi, power lines, vibrations, electrodomestic appliances and so on makes for a very pure envorinoment energetically, and this stimulates the creative process immensely. It is an amazing place for anyone who enjoys creative expression.
Liberato and Rand are great hosts - welcoming and warm, while very much respecting my privacy, and letting me mark the pace of our interaction. I spent a very pleasant evening with them at the Refugio, enjoying their company, the vibrant night sky, great music and lovely conversation.
Due to my job, I travel 24/7/365, and live in hotels wherever I go. I can honestly stay that the three nights I spent at Sabambugi were the best nights I have spent anywhere. I will be back, for a longer stay next time.
