Great location and lovely hotel, beware of the SC
Paid 400 a night. Staying in a duplex apartment that was finished to a high standard and was extremely comfortable, looks better in real life than on the pictures. I mean it had 3 AC units, 2 tvs and 2 toilets. It was huge. The hotel is perfectly located in the old town and the facilities were great. Pool at night was beautiful as its heated. Highly recommend the attached restaurant for dinner. The farm to table restaurant you can get a taxi to for a change if scenery was also a nice addition. But the breakfast is similar and in general i think there could be more options for breakfast. The only one negative was at checkout they tried to add a 10% tip on the bill which was cheeky. For 400 a night you kind of expect a good service but it wasn't amazing enough to tip as we were barely there so i thought was cheeky and the first time i have had that done (and we stay in about 30 hotels a year). You can remove it though.

Chic oasis in great location!
I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. It was tucked into a hidden fortress in the charming old town of Paraty. Even though the surroundings are rustic and bohemian, this hotel felt very modern and chic. Loved the breakfast. My room was super spacious, clean and comfortable. I have zero complaints about my stay and would stay again!
