Casa Turquesa is a luxury guesthouse, located in a quiet corner of Paraty’s historical centre. Set in a beautifully restored townhouse looking out over the town’s small pier, the hotel prides itself in providing guests with a warm and welcoming experience of Paraty while maintaining a feeling of calm and tranquillity within the hotel’s walls. Casa Turquesa is a great option for those wanting to stay in a small intimate hotel, full of Brazilian hospitality, with easy access to the town’s charming centre.

The hotel is set in a privileged position in a quiet part of Paraty’s historical centre facing the water’s edge. Surrounded by beautiful views, the hotel’s balconies look out onto green forest-covered mountains, terracotta tiled roofs, the Church of Santa Rita and the greeny-blue waters of Paraty Bay. Also within strolling distance of the hotel is a range of bars, restaurants and cafés playing live music, making it a great choice for those wanting to be within easy reach of nightlife for the evenings.

The whitewashed colonial mansion contains 9 spacious suites, which surround a cool, internal courtyard, plunge pool and bar. In keeping with the idea of making guests feel at home, there is a large living room, boutique and reading room with a small fireplace for cooler nights.

The hotel’s light and airy suites are individually decorated with furniture designed by Brazilian artists and works of art, produced by local and international artists. Rooms are inviting and cool, with soft white furnishings, fine mosquito nets and colourful touches like striped rugs, patterned cushions and bright paintings. Master Suites are more spacious and have the added benefit of a private Jacuzzi to relax in.

The main feature of this hotel is its homely atmosphere and attentive service. Guests are asked to take their shoes off on arrival and are given a pair of Havaianas to use within the hotel to help them feel more at home. Breakfasts are generous with home cooked breads and pastries and the hotel bar is open throughout the day serving sophisticated tapas-style snacks and drinks. Although Casa Turquesa is not on the beach, it has its own boat and will organise transport for guests to access the various different beaches around Paraty.

Located within walking distance of bars and restaurants, homely atmosphere, attentive service.
