Our trip and experience at Pousada Literaria, and Paraty, was superlative. The Hotel was FIRST class, in layout, physical accommodations and offering, and excellent service. Excellent service. The food in the newly opened restaurant was distinguished. We had the best time,and are only saddened that we did not stay longer! Paraty is a one of a kind historic, cultural, and... More

The best place to stay in Paraty. The team takes care of the smallest details. Everything extremely organized. Ideal place to rest and recover your energy. Certainly a place to return. I strongly recommend it.

Some years ago its name was Pousada Koxixo and it was simpler than it's now. It was remodeled and the rooms were improved. The swimming pool is made of clear stone and it is the most beautiful swimming pool I've ever seen in my life. The rooms are well decorated and near the parking lot. The breakfast is served around...

A pleasant , beautiful and charming place with very well trained employees. A restaurant with veryy good meal and a excelente breakfast. A good place to rest and enjoy a unique place like Paraty. Located at the historical center of the city is really the best choice to enjoy this bucolic city.

Excellent hotel with good facilities and very friendly and professional staff. Very nice swimming pool where you eat a very nice breakfast served by friendly staff. Close to the centre but on the quiet side of town which is good. We had a problem with our transport and the hotel reception staff where very helpful is resolving. The best rooms... More

A simply stunning, romantic hotel. Tastefully decorated, with lots of little character points. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, the common areas like the lounge and pool are fantastic, and the service is out of this world - even to the point of refusing a tip for luggage collection and loading into a cab, with the comment "No thank you sir,...

Lovely, stylish hotel just on the border of the pedestrianised area of Paraty. The staff were very friendly and helpful with lunch and dinner recommendations, and our room was big and clean. Breakfast was on all morning and layed out beautifully next to the pool with delicious homemade cakes and fresh fruit.

We are very happy we chose to stay at this Pousada in Paraty. The hotel has a fantastic location with the best grounds of any hotel in the historic center. The pool was excellent...cleaned daily with perfect water temperature. Rafaela (the manager) was excellent all around as were all the staff. On the negative side...the 3 breakfasts we had were...

Quick and efficient check-in. We arrived late due to traffic, we were spared the paperwork until the next morning and were quickly shown to our suite (above reception). First impressions..... jaw dropping style and architecture. The room, spacious, comfortable. The bathroom, stylish, modern, clean, comfortable. Breakfast.... not to be missed, ample, filling and tasty. The gardens and grounds, perfectly kept... More

A beautiful hotel right in the heart of the historic centre. From the time we checked in to the day we left the staff were incredibly helpful. Things also should get better once their restaurant opens later this year. One particularly nice thing was you could have breakfast whenever you wished so no rushing to get up to hit that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historical center of Paraty, surrounded by cultural richness and natural exuberance, Pousada Literaria occupies a fully restored colonial house. High quality service, comfortable accommodations and complete leisure - here, every guest is always our main character. FLIP's official hotel, the Pousada Literaria is curated by the journalist Miguel Conde, who is inspired by literary references to guarantee the hotel's cultural identity. A stanza of a poem, a verse in a song, an excerpt from a novel- each corner of the hotel was designed to seduce. With the highest quality in service, we consider each of our guests our main character. The Pousada Literaria was projected by Jacobsen Arquitetura to have an atmosphere that reflects the tradition of Paraty in the arts and culture, and to offer all the refinement and comfort to our guests. The 23 accommodations are spacious and cozy and are equipped with king size bed, LCD TV with Sky channels, DVD, air conditioning, safe, wireless internet, besides a minibar that can be customized by the guest. All of them have towels and robes made of high quality cotton and Natura amenities, besides 600 thread count sheets for your comfort. Moreover, the Master Suites are composed with a living room and a Jacuzzi. For your comfort and convenience, Pousada Literaria offers indoor parking space for your car during your stay in Paraty. The leisure area has a hot swimming pool in its central area, bar, dry sauna, massage room and shower room - ideal for relaxation after a walk through the city, a dive in the ocean or bathing in the waterfalls of Paraty. In the rooms, you have a private collection of books and DVDs at your disposal and, in the library, a selection of almost 2.000 Titles of films and books to choose from. ... more   less
