Maris Paraty is a small and exclusive guesthouse. With few accommodations, we offer a relaxed environment. Ideal for couples.

We are located in the quiet Caborê neighbourhood, a 10 minutes walk from the historic centre by the riverside promenade.

All property is surrounded by a tropical garden with a number of orchids and bromelias and an inviting pool area.

We are committed to the well-being of our guests. We take pride in providing a consistent, personal and discrete service, ensuring privacy and comfort.

In 2019 we were awarded the traveller’s choice by tripadvisor and ranked the first best B&B in Brazil and South America, we remained in the list of the 25 best B&Bs and Inns of the world and maintained our 9,8 score in







We have 2 bungalows, 2 superior suites (in the 2nd floor) and 2 standart suites (in the ground floor). The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with artcrafts and works of local artists. All windows have anti-mosquito nets and roller shutters. They accommodate 2 people, but the bungalows have an extra single bed requested in advance (see Prices).

The stay includes breakfast served individually, wi-fi and quality services.


Our service is personalised and we try recommending the best things to do for each guest. Our working hours are from 8h to 20h. We do not have a 24 hour reception. There is daily cleaning service between 11h and 14h.


Our rich and extensive breakfast is served between 8h and 10h30 at the terrace individually. Prepared and served with attention and care, it includes a variety of fruits, juice, jams, yogurt, cake, breads, cold cuts, coffee, milk, English tea, among others.

We can provide special requests and food restrictions within our possibilities and if notified in advance.

About us

“Maris Paraty is also our home and we love recommending places that we usually also like to attend. We make an effort to welcome our guests, without interfering in their privacy, providing a spontaneous and friendly service, however discrete. We participate actively on the day-to-day of the Pousada, but we count also with wonderful professionals.”

We are a Brazilian-Belgian couple with a passion for travelling. We met in 2010 and got married in 2016 in a magic ceremony in front of the breath-taking Paraty Bay.

We decided to create roots in Paraty when we took over the administration of Maris. Here we can reciprocate a little of the warm welcome we have received around the world.

Our travels, Pieter’s experiences in restaurants in Antwerp and Mari’s years of work in the fields of tourism, urban planning and gastronomy all sum up to make our guesthouse both personal and professional. An appropriate choice for our talents and life plans. We love what we do and we hope that reflects in our work.
