Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Set on a pretty cobbled street in in the charming colonial town of Paraty, Pousada do Ouro is an inviting and atmospheric spot. Behind the whitewashed 18th-century façade, interiors are simple and stylish, with bold colours creating a lively tone against the crisp white walls and linens.
So welcoming and stylish is this chic pousada that the likes of Mick Jagger and various important writers and photographers, in town for the popular literature and photography festivals, have been among the celebrities to stay, drawn by the hotel’s focus on privacy and tranquillity.
A delicious buffet breakfast is served each day, with fresh juices and fruit, homemade yoghurt, eggs-to-order, meats, cheeses, breads and cakes.
For dinner, guests can enjoy food from the sister restaurant Punto Divino served at the pousada. Enjoy delicious Italian fare with specialities such as octopus carpaccio and grouper fish ravioli at the bar, or out by the pool.
The 27 individually-decorated rooms and suites are set across a couple of different buildings, though all offer a simple, fresh feel with crisp white linens, woven rugs, dark woods and a collection of artworks depicting the local flora & fauna.
Just a few metres and you reach the sea where you can enjoy a cruise across the bay, head out for a day of snorkelling or just relax on the sandy beaches of the beautiful surrounding islands. The fertile tropical landscape is great for hiking or walks and, after the day’s explorations, you can relax with a cocktail by the swimming pool or enjoy a massage or treatment at the pousada's Shambala Spa, with its wide selection of massage and beauty treatments.
