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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is actually difficult to call it a hotel as the owner and her incredibly warm and attentive staff truly make you feel like you are at home. The hotel is lovely with much attention to detail that we very much noticed and appreciated. We stayed in the White Room which had a wonderful balcony that we spent much time positioned on looking at over the street below. We loved the view so much that we bought a photograph of the church we looked at from the balcony as the perfect memento of a perfect stay.
The hotel is in a great location-close to the Marina, walking distance from all the shops and restaurants but in an area that is quiet at night.
The breakfast is exquisite highlighted by the pastries and breads that rival any we have eaten around the world. We will go back to Paraty just to stay here again!

My wife, brother and sister-in-law arrived at the this property on a Sunday night from Igazu falls. The owner Tete and her staff were there to greet us, and from that time to the time we left, all staff were very hospitable, warm and helpful and attentive to every needs of ours. Tete is a exceptionally warm and welcomming hostess and cared for our stay to be enjoyable eventhough the weather wasn't that cooperative.
The breakfast and the tea they offered was all fresh and freshly prepared. We throughly enjoyed our stay of three nights. I would love to go back and stay there again.

I've traveled all over the world and stayed in numerous luxury accommodations, and Casa Turquesa may be the most detail-oriented inn I've ever booked. From the moment I walked in the door, I was treated like family—or was it royalty? Perhaps both? The owner was ever present, and her staff was endlessly attentive and kind. I would visit Paraty again if only for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful space!

Best boutique hotel ever. We felt like we were treated like royalty, even though we rented the smallest room. Even little gifts left on our pillow every night. Just luxurious, including the fantastic (and free!) breakfast.

The hotel even arranged a private boat and fantastic driver at the last minute for a cost far less than if we went to a tour operator. Can't recommend this place enough - just exquisite.

We spent three nights there in the "verde" suit which was spacious and comfortable.
Casa Turquesa has been wonderfully restored and we enjoyed spending time by the pool, bar and library area.
All the staff was very friendly and efficient. The owner Tete made us feel very welcome.
The breakfasts and afternoon teas were delicious and plentiful. A good bar menu. Looking forward to make the "casquinha" at home.
Our only regret is not having spent more time here.
Merci Tete!

perfect week at Paraty. the hotel staff is simply outstanding! it is a small place in the history center of Paraty. All was just perfect, the room was amazing but not even close to the level of service you can get at the hotel.
All the staff is there to make your time unforgettable.
the only comment is regarding the price, that for a Brazilian standard look very high.

My husband and I just arrived from a couple of amazing days in Paraty and our stay at Casa Turquesa was one of the highlights of the trip. From the arrival where we were greeted with delicious cake and tea, to the bright spacious room, delicious breakfast, decor details and little presents at turn down service Tete, Celine, Dalvina, Jeferson, Richard and the entire staff made sure we had the best experience!
They also helped us booking a great city tour with Gabriel & incredible boat tour with Deivid (we don’t have their instagrams or contacts but also highly recommend so if you stay at Casa Turquesa make sure to enjoy those too).
Thanks a lot CT team. We miss you and this incredible place already.

The rooms could not be nicer, the staff could not be more perfect, anticipating any want or need. So cozy. The location is perfect. I have been there many times and will return as often as I can.

Breakfast is magnificent and so is the afternoon cake after coming back from a boat day.

Staff takes care of everything for you in Parati. Just perfect.
