This is one of the most charming places weve ever stayed. 9 rooms. Genuine personal service. Lovely little courtyard. Very relaxed and dainty with amazing positive energy. Perfect breakfast and delicious cakes at teatime. We actually stayed here on our honeymoon back in nov 2012 but just got to writing the review now. The photos dont do the place justice.

The stay was fantastic - Tete and the staff were so friendly, breakfast was super and the level of attention was both engaging and respectful that we were on vacation. Location cannot be beat, and the room was extremely comfortable for what could have been a much (much) longer stay :)

Casa Turquesa blends perfectly with the overall magical atmosphere that characterises the historical village of Paraty. Luxurious and charming yet intimate and cozy, the B&B truly makes you feel at home. Stone walls combine with wood and nature to create a unique and interesting house. I had the pleasure to stay in the royal room which was very spacious and... More

Turquesa is really a special place that feels more like staying in a stunning private home. The White Suite is truly incredible. Staff are very, very helpful and the place was exactly what we had hoped for, albeit at a price.

Our experience at Casa Turquesa was amazing. The location in Paraty is perfect. You only have to walk a few steps across the street to be by the water and many amazing restaurants, bars and shops are only a few blocks away.

This is one 'boutique' hotel that equals the finest anywhere. It's obvious a lot of thought and planning has gone into the design and execution of a fine hotel experience. Comfortable and spacious room, equally comfortable public spaces, delicious breakfast, tea to hold you over for a late dinner, towels for your boat trip and suggestions for activities, dining, shopping....

The Casa Turquesa is beside the harbour of this UNESCO heritage village. The 600 year old village is charming yet it is outshone by the elegance and tranquility of this small hotel with its sophisticated ambiance. The staff are very accommodating and friendly so that the air of peace and relaxation is complete.

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!
