“Time out in Paraty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Stayed for 3 days in Casa Turquesa. Tete, the owner was a delight. She worked on making each guest feel unique, in her home. She and the staff made you feel at ease and though there might be an occasional language gap, they were quick to resolve. Rooms were well done and the breakfast area and bar were just right for this size lodging. Ask Marques where the party will be tonite-Parity 33 maybe

Room Tip: The Casa is close to the pier, so going out to the islands is simple-any room will do

A wonderful place to stay and a brilliant introduction to Brazil for us. The attention to detail was perfect and the excursions planned for us were absolutely spot on, as if Pureza had summed us up and knew exactly what would suit us. Rooms were delightful, clean and beautifully designed and food was excellent. Big size wellies needed though!

All I can say is Amen to all other great comments. We arrived on NY's Day, 2014. Had the honeymoon suite which was amazing. Tete and her staff are so in tuned to small details and treat you as a guest in their beautiful home.....we love to sleep in so love the fact breakfast is served at any hour. One of my favorite places I have stayed......

Casa Turquesa is perhaps the best hotel we've ever stayed at (and we've stayed at a few...) The rooms are glorious, the interiors beautiful, the food to die for, and the ambience relaxing and luxurious. But it is really the little things, the attention to detail, and the wonderful staff that makes this place so special. Go go go.

After a long trip through Rio and then Bouzios we finally arrived to Paraty for the relaxing part of our trip, we were supposed to stay 2 days in Paraty in Casa Turquesa and then move on to our next destination. Once the four of us walked into Casa Turquesa we all looked at each other and immediately asked if we could stay longer, this place is absolutely magical! The whole team there made us feel like family, the owner took personal care and interest with us, we were pampered and made to feel like we were the guests of honour, it was such an incredibly relaxing and luxury experience, from the moment you walk in and are asked to drop your street shoes and exchange them for new Havaianas which you are gifted at the end of your stay, to the reception cocktail, the breakfast that has no hour, it's when you wake up... to the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, the fabulous Tete (the owner), the food, the guests, the rooms...I believe I speak for all four of us when I say I will definitely go back and would recommend anyone who travels to the area to stay in Casa Turquesa.

My husband and I arrived at Casa Turquesa in Paraty on my 50th birthday, as part of a bucket list trip to Brazil. The staff went out of its way to make us feel welcome and special, including arranging dinners and outings, and surprising us with a cake in our room. The pousada is beautifully appointed with impeccable design and comfort, offering a small relaxation pool and reading room. Slipping out of our street shoes into house flip flops offered a nod to Brazil's Japanese influence and set the zen tone for our three luxurious nights. The inn is tranquil and intimate, and the staff - Marcos, Gustav and Francisco - made us feel like we were their only guests. Breakfasts are truly an experience, served in several courses to your table. Light meals, afternoon tea and the signature house cachaca cocktail are also wonderful. Our room was a tranquil retreat in itself, again decorated to perfection with the juxtaposition of rustic wood and elegant fabrics, and all the amenities you can imagine. The ambiance is sophisticated, yet relaxed.

Room Tip: We stayed downstairs in the yellow room, which was charming and comfortable with a window overlookin...

We stayed here at the end of a trip to Brazil. Paraty is lovely,can recommend Marianna from Paraty Tours as guide, also trekking day.
Casa Turquesa is a beautifully designed and appointed guest house which also serves light meals. There are so many lovely touches and the service was amazing, Breakfasts were lovely and tea and cake is served at 5pm. The owners were away while we were staying and their friend Francisco made sure that we were very well looked after. He suggested activities and booked them for us and modified them to suit some rainy days.
Can't recommend highly enough!

Room Tip: Turquoise room is lovely

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.
