Casa Turquesa in Paraty is a restored mansion that has 9 suites with unparalleled views of the city and the mansion’s courtyard. The entrance of the house faces the city’s port and is right opposite the fish market. Enter the hotel through its replica colonial doors crafted in local wood and painted in turquoise blue.
Creating a spacious hotel with an intimate atmosphere was a concept that would be challenging but worthwhile investing in. The hotel has 9 luxurious suites and showcases many original features such as the stone and whale oil walls, a feature typical of colonial Brazil, and presents the rooms in elevated colour hues of blues, gold yellows and whites.
Paraty, an old Portuguese imperial town on the Costa Verde, is situated to the south of Rio de Janeiro and north of São Paulo.
