Imagine a Paradise (Paraíso) where a single family takes care of everything. Make your dreams sweet with the natural cascade symphony. This Paradise higher than the thousand meter mark is close to the heaven, just waiting for you. And with the advantage you've not to wait til your last day... Ask for Borracha. Not Obama, not Lula, he is the... More

Let me just make a quick overview if you ever decide to visit this wonderful place. Transportation: Venture and take public transportation. I stayed in Ipanema for a couple of days, then took a cab to the bus station before heading to Petropolis. Not many people speak English but it is way cheaper than taking a cab all the way... More

If you don't, then Pousada Paraíso is the closest thing you can have to this. The place is amazing, fantastically integrated in the local topography, full of nice things to do, from a creative and delicious natural swimming pool, to archery and mini-golf. Excellent for couples, with or without children but also for people just looking for a escape of... More

Scattered around Rio de Janeiro in a 2-3 radius there are loads of pousadas that claim tranquility and hiking trails and charm - and so often are bitterly disappointing. The Paraiso massively exceeded our expectations. Lovely setting, amazing natural rock pool, tons of activities for the kids (archery, minigolf, pingpong etc) but discreet so it never felt like Disneyland, great... More

Everything everyone has written about this pousada is totally true - The chalets are set up in a very harmonious way with the nature - you can feel the chalets were build to accommodate nature and not the other way round - having said that the chalets are top notch with great beds, fire place stocked with a whole bunch...

We stayed at Pousada Paraiso for 2 nights with our three young children (aged 6,5 and 3). The accommodation and food were both good but what made the pousada extra special was the welcome and hospitality of the owners and staff. There are plenty of activities to suit all ages and the owners are extremely knowledgeable about the natural habitat... More

I spent four days in Pousada Paraiso with my husband and our eleven years old son. The place is very beatiful, on the top of a mountain, sourrounded by a small forest. The owners could not do more to give us a pleasant stay. There are a lot of outdoor activities, tracks in the forest, a natural swimming pool, bird... More

A charming place, sourranded by mountains. My wife and I usually go there to relax. The owners do their best to make you feel at home. Another good point is the quality of the food: many ingreadients are from their own vegetable garden. We highly recommend this place.
