This charming, literary-themed hotel is a welcoming boutique gem located on a tranquil street in the heart of historic Paraty. Set in a converted colonial house, a collection of 24 generously proportioned suites are furnished in a colour palette that reflects the rich tropical hues of Paraty's streets. All feature high-quality linens, loving attention to detail and all look out to the property's manicured gardens or over the central courtyard with its sun terrace and heated swimming pool.
Three well-appointed villas are ideal for larger families or those seeking a more self-contained stay but with access to all the amenities of the main house. For those who prefer to have their toes in the sand, Pousada Literaria also operates a two-bedroom coastal villa, accessed only by boat along the picturesque coastline to the south of Paraty
Opportunities to unwind and slow the pace can be found throughout Pousada Literaria, from the tranquil reading room, the intimate Spa Poesia or poolside, sipping cocktails blended with the freshest tropical fruits of the Green Coast. The property's highly regarded restaurant, Quintal das Letras, is set in the adjacent building, but guests do not have to venture far to enjoy Literaria’s legendary breakfasts - they can be served at any time of day, and in any venue of your choosing.
