Pousada do Ouro is a boutique hotel in the quaint colonial town of Paraty, Rio de Janeiro. The whitewashed 18th-century building houses stylish rooms, with bold colors contrasting against ivory walls and white linens. Woven rugs, dark woods and artwork depicting the local fauna and flora embellish the 27 individually-decorated room. During the day, you can hike the fertile landscapes or spend the day at a nearby beach. Spa treatments, or cocktails by the pool await your return. At Punto Divino, the hotel restaurant, you’ll enjoy Italian and other international specialties.
