Charmingly quirky little guesthouse in a well-preserved colonial building, with a bold, cheerful and eclectic decorative style.

Pousada do Sandi is a quirky little guesthouse located in the historic centre of Paraty within a smart, whitewashed 17th-century building, a charming relic of the Portuguese colonial era. It was originally an elementary school, then a social club, before being transformed into a pousada.

Guestrooms are cheerfully decorated in bold, bright colours, and equipped with air-con, minibar, and TV. Rooms on the first floor have floor to ceiling windows with wrought iron railings. 

The restaurant has a bold, flamboyant design, which is also reflected in the presentation of the food on your plate. Fresh fish and seafood features prominently on the menu. There is also a games room, bar and sauna.
