The Reception staff were always willing to shoot the breeze and help improve your day or choice of evening restaurant. This hotel is the type of place you will remember when you...

This hotel gets everything right. The hotel itself is beautiful (though very unassuming from the street). The rooms are large and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable. The location is great- right along the water in the historic center of Paraty. The food at breakfast was also terrific. On top of everything, the service was among the best (if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by history, CASA TURQUESA has nine suites and apartments (from 27 to 58 sq.m.) with views of Paraty’s landscapes: the bay and its islands, the famous roofs of the city, the mountains and the dome of the Church of Santa Rita. Renato Tavolaro’s design rebuilt the facade of an 18th Century two-story house destroyed by a fire thirty years ago. This restoration was made with all care and concern about not only preserving the colonial architecture, but also offering the best to its visitors. It is a mix of historic beauty and contemporary comfort. Its infrastructure offers cozy atmosphere, internal yard for the guests, swimming pool equipped with whirlpool tube, bar, cellar, gazebo and garden. CASA TURQUESA further offers a reading room with a computer (Wi-Fi zone) and a small fireplace for colder days. The rooms also offer luxurious comfort: king and queen size beds, 100%-cotton egipcian bed sheets designed by renowned Trussardi house; wide bathrooms with Granado products and, in some of the suites, a whirlpool tube. All apartments and suites have air conditioner, ceiling fan, safe, mini-bar (free), telephone, LCD TV set, dock station, DVD player and hair drier. In deference to local gastronomical culture, Casa Turquesa doesn't offer neither lunch nor dinner. For those who wish to stay at the inn, it offers light and healthy options such as quiches, salads and pastas. Breakfast is prepared in the inn's own kitchen, served daily and with no restriction hours. It's filled with delicious options such as muffins and tapiocas. At the end of the day, when guests are back from their strolls, other culinary surprises await, such as a just baked cake. During the happy hour at the Casa Turquesa's bar, a turquoise dry accompanied by salmon ceviche is an excellent option to start the night.
