Located at the heart of historic Paraty, Pousada Literaria is a boutique hotel tucked within a colonial-era home. The inn has served as the official domicile of the International Literary Festival of Paraty (FLIP) since 2012.
Pousada Literaria’s sister property, Fazenda Bananal, is a 445-acres farm located 10 minutes from Paraty by road. There, guests of either property can enjoy cultural and active adventures, as well as the farm-to-table restaurant.
This family-owned farm dates to the 17th Century. Its structures have been thoughtfully restored in accordance with IPHAN (the Brazilian heritage agency) standards. Fazenda Bananal now operates as a sustainable educational project, with hiking trails, birdwatching, and a farm-to-table restaurant.
Guests at Pousada Literaria have access to a pool with sundeck, a restaurant, a fitness center, a spa with a hot tub, and a garden.
Pousada Literaria’s Poetry Spa offers facial and body therapies using imported and national products, including agroecological herbs, sourced directly from Fazenda Bananal’s gardens. These herbs can be chosen by guests at the spa’s Facial & Body Exfoliant Bar.
The hotel also houses Livraria das Marés, Paraty’s most complete bookstore.
Designed by the award-winning Jacobsen Arquitetura office, the hotel’s restaurant works with the farm-to-table concept, using fresh products received daily from Fazenda Bananal to explore the traditional caiçara cuisine.
Pousada Literaria offers private boat charters, allowing guests to explore the lush Paraty coast and the Dos Tamoios ecological zone. Maria Panela, the hotel’s private schooner, is the perfect setting to explore the tropical fjord at Saco do Mamanguá, offering offering onboard lunch.
