Pousada LiterariaParaty, Brazil
Pousada Literaria is one of the bigger properties in Paraty with a total of 23 rooms and suites, and is the perfect choice for those who prefer the infrastructure of a hotel over a smaller bed and breakfast. The pousada is situated right in the historic centre of Paraty in two restored colonial houses, with a large garden and pool area occupying the courtyard.
There are thirteen Apartments and ten Suites, and three newly built Villas. The rooms are equipped with all modern facilities that you would expect from a hotel such as air conditioning, safety box, minibar and TV. The décor is modern and stylish, with a literary theme running throughout the hotel; there are books in each room for guests to browse, a large library, and also a nearby bookstore and coffee shop run by the hotel.
A separate building near the pool area hosts a small gym, yoga room, and spa area. There is also a hotel car park to facilitate for those hiring a car to explore the Costa Verde.
Pousada Literaria has its own schooner which can rented by guests for an exclusive private excursion of Paraty’s coast, and they also arrange bird watching excursions just a short drive away from Paraty. The swimming pool is a good place to relax after a day of exploring the town and nearby coast.
Breakfast is served by the pool-side bar and can be taken at the time guests prefer, and there is also a hotel restaurant, Quintal das Letras, right next door which is open for lunch and dinner. The restaurant serves high quality dishes made of local produce, with many of the vegetables sourced from the hotels nearby farm. The seafood is excellent – we highly recommend the plantain-crusted fish and the seafood risotto.
