Charming historic guesthouse featuring a classically Brazilian mix of colonial architecture, lush foliage and bright splashes of tropical colour.

The charming Pousada do Ouro consists of two colonial buildings on either side of a quiet street in the historical heart of Paraty. Bright colour accents, rustic tiled roofs and historic architecture make this a typically Brazilian guesthouse, delightful in every way.

The simply furnished and classically styled rooms include four very large suites. There are several relaxation areas – a mix of stylish floral patterns, paintings, tropical plants and exposed stone – as well as a bar, restaurant and secluded pool with loungers, Jacuzzi and sauna.

Our Expert's Opinion

The hotel is in a beautifully restored colonial building in a great location in the centre of Parati. During the summer months this area can be hot so you'll definitely want to take advantage of the inviting pool.
