      Bamboo Groove is a clean and secure hostel, offering private rooms for couples and shared dormitories for independent travelers.  We include FREE wifi Internet, individual lockers, use of the kitchen & grill, and limited enclosed parking with reservations. Surf lessons, rentals (surfboards, stand-ups & mountain bikes), and transport services can be arranged on site, and we offer pizzas and a small bar in the evenings. 
      Bamboo Groove is located in the Recanto de Itamambuca - a quaint village just 10 minutes from the city of Ubatuba that's surrounded by the Parque Estadual da Serra do Mar's 315,000 hectares of forest-covered mountains, pristine beaches, islands, rivers, and waterfalls.  Surfing and Stand Up Paddling in Itamambuca are world-class, meeting the needs of both beginning and experienced watermen and women.
      The Groove itself is adjacent to the mangrove and backed by our 11,000 sq. meter forest-covered hillside, where we maintain a trail from our terraced gardens down below up to a summit with panoramic views of the entire region. Access to the hostel is easy, with a bus stop 500 meters away on the BR-101 (km 37,5). And at just 100 meters from where the river meets the sea, we're the closest accommodation to the beach and surf!
      Bamboo Groove is a great place to get back to nature, seek adventure, or just relax and meet other interesting travelers. We believe in seizing the day 'responsibly' and will go to extremes to help you find balance!

Guest Reviews

"It was a awesome stay at the Bamboo Groove in Itamambuca. The owners were assisting me with every question and giving advice I needed. Furthermore we had long nice conversations who were enriching my stay very much. The bamboo groove is located very close to the sea and close to a surf spot where you can do classes or rent a board. A small supermarket is close by and Ubatuba (the next bigger city) is also easy to reach. The atmosphere of that place is simply magic and the people who live at that great place are that too! Thanks for that experience!"
