Brazil: Hidden Pousadas – Casa Zulu, Icaraizinho de Amontada, Ceara
By Alison McGowan December 3, 2013 Casa Zulu was a wonderful surprise. It already came highly recommended by kiting friends, but for some reason I just wasn&#145t expecting to find a beautiful beachfront pousada right near the centre of the small village of Icaraizinho de Amontada (which is so hidden it doesn&#145t even appear on the map). South African /French run, Pousada Casa Zulu has 6 suites in total comprising two floor octagonal chalets and garden rooms, and all are set amongst the leafy tropical gardens. They&#145re very comfortable too; all have airconditioning, flatscreen TV, large box spring beds and excellent power showers in the bathrooms. But what I loved best was having the beach on my doorstep, a lovely swimming pool to lounge around, and the beautiful double height thatched club room. Pousada Casa Zulu has plenty of competition these days from other pousadas in Icaraizinho. Where it wins hands down from others is in its central location right in the village, in its friendly international atmosphere and in its superb value for money which makes it perfect for solos, kite surfers and families alike. I only got to stay one night at Casa Zulu, which was definitely not enough. I&#145ll be back for sure next year!
