Stayed here for 4 nights en route from the Iguasso Falls to Rio de Janeiro. Delightful small hotel which is both stylish and extremely well run. The breakfasts are excellent and the cake at tea time utterly delicious. All the staff are charming and their restaurant recommendations excellent.

Casa Turquesa has a perfect location in Paraty. The small intimate and highly stylized hotel has a wonderful attentive staff. The rooms are quite comfortable and our white room was very spacious. The breakfast was delicious and tea and cake is served daily in the late afternoon, a lovely touch.

This is probably the loveliest, nicest and most charming place we ever stayed at. We could not have wished for a better time.

Casa Turquesa lived up to the superlative reviews. This is an oasis of understated luxury in the heart of historic Paraty. Each room is decorated differently within a unifying design theme. The attention to detail is refreshing and will even surprise the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons crowd. The owner about whom many have raved in the reviews was away...

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. ... more   less
