Pousada do Sandi

A 300-year old colonial mansion, sitting at the heart of Paraty, Pousada do Sandi has been the town’s most famous small hotel for more than 30 years. Extensively renovated in 2020, historic charm pairs beautifully with modern comforts. There are 28 stunning, colourful, characterful rooms, suites and apartments.

Fazenda Catucaba

Around 1.5 hours’ drive inland from Paraty, Fazenda Catuçaba is a true rural idyll situated amongst rolling hills with a working organic farm, rivers, lakes and expansive views from the mountains. The traditional 1850s casarão (main house) is the hotel’s centrepiece and retains its cosiness and charm. Seven rooms and three suites are available set above the casarão in three charming farmhouses, with views of the valley and forested hillsides.

Casa Cairucu

This stunning private beach house fronts the calm, protected waters of Paraty Bay and is perfect for families, honeymooners or groups of friends. The villa boasts three sea-facing double en-suite rooms and a smaller single room and can sleep up to eight people in total.

Pousada Picinguaba

A lovely, small hotel set overlooking stunning, forested coastline half way between Rio and Sao Paolo. The 10 comfortable rooms overlook tropical gardens that surround the swimming pool and the food served is fresh and local.
