The Pousada Literária de Paraty is an immaculate guesthouse located in the heart of Paraty’s historical centre. With fantastic facilities, including a large swimming pool, this Pousada is ideal for those looking for a few days of relaxation but who don’t want complete seclusion and still want to be able to walk to restaurants and nightlife for the evenings.

The guesthouse is positioned in the heart of Paraty’s historical centre in a restored colonial townhouse. Just 300 metres from the port, the Pousada is perfect for those looking to make the most of Paraty’s lively café and restaurant culture, but who want a calm and relaxing hotel to come back to.

Set around a luscious tropical garden and large outdoor pool area, the Pousada is inspired by Paraty's arts and cultural scene. In fact, it takes its name from the annual literary festival which takes place in Paraty in July.

Its 23 rooms and suites are spacious and decorated to a high standard with wooden floors, hessian rugs and colourful textiles. All are designed to make guests feel at home and come equipped with LCD TVs, DVD players and a collection of books and DVDs.

Despite being located in the middle of town, this hotel boasts lots of facilities including a library with over 4000 books and films, a large outdoor swimming pool and pool bar, a sauna and massage room and a newly built spa.

In addition to this, guests can enjoy delicious modern Brazilian dishes served up in the hotel’s adjoining restaurant ‘Quintal das Letras’ or aboard the Pousada Literaria’s private sailboat ‘Maria Panela’ which offers exclusive tours of Paraty Bay and the surrounding area. In keeping with Paraty's laid-back atmosphere, breakfast runs until midday and can be served on your private balcony, by the pool or in the library.

Central location and excellent facilities.

Not for those wanting to be within walking distance of the beach.
