The Casa Brancas (white house) is a delightful boutique hotel located a stone's throw from the statue of Brigitte Bardot, on Orla Bardot, the famous seaside promenade of Bruzios, therefore providing the town's most beautiful panoramic views from its pool and gastronomic restaurant. The fully-equipped rooms and spa complete the setting for a perfect holiday.

    Location 9.82 /10

    On the hillsides of Morro Humaita overlooking the famous Orla Bardot, the seaside promenade in the centre of the chic seaside resort of Buzios, on the north-eastern side of the peninsula which goes by the same name, 112 mi north from Rio de Janeiro. The Casa Brancas is a just a stone's throw from the bronze statue of French actress Brigitte Bardot. Moreover, lively rua das Pedras lies 200 metres away. The hotel is nonetheless very peaceful. Allow two and a half hours to go to the airport. Cabo Frio international airport is a mere 18 mi away but it mainly welcomes domestic and Argentinean flights.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The rooms of the Casa Brancas are all different from one another but they have one thing in common: they all make you feel at home! The hotel is actually the owner's former home - its decor includes yellow shutters, flower pots, candles, white walls embellished with paintings, large mirrors and slab paving. It is a very cosy place that is definitely not short for space. Walk down two steps and you will find yourself in the lounge furnished with a white leather sofa, a wooden coffee table and a flat screen satellite television (many international channels). All of the necessary amenities are available in the rooms: individual air-conditioning, a free safe with digi-code, a fridge mini-bar, a direct telephone line and free wireless internet access as well as an internet cable. Once you have seen your room and the lounge, you will be attracted to the irresistible large terrace with its panoramic view of Buzios, the bay, the sea and the surrounding mountains. We can guarantee that you won't tire of gazing at this superb scenery while comfortably reclining in one of the deckchairs fitted with a mattress, in the company of birds which come and land near you. The bathrooms are equipped with a large tropical shower (a note to prudish guests: you can be seen through the glass!), a toilet, hospitality products, a hairdryer worthy of a hairdressing salon, bathrobes and tissues. We personally fell in love with the passion fruit scented soap! Beach or bath towels are also provided directly in your room and room service is available around the clock.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    Built in 1974, the Casa Brancas (white house) holds a total of 32 guestrooms and looks a lot like a country villa. You will find, for example, a hammock hanging in the shade of some trees! After walking across the lobby, guests have to walk up some stairs to get to the cosy lounge with a fire place, decorated with a beautiful painting of Rio de Janeiro's Sugarloaf Mountain. This place is also used as a games room. Then comes the wooden panoramic terrace where the bar, restaurant and pool are gathered. The view of Buzios, the harbour, the sea, the bay and the mountains is absolutely breathtaking! The rectangular pool (3 x 7m) and its beautiful panoramic view are open around the clock. The solarium terrace overlooking Orla Bardot is set up with deckchairs fitted with cushions, some double four-poster beds sheltered from the wind by drapes and white canvas parasols. A path leads up to the spa, and to a second bar, 'El Deck', which also overlooks Orla Bardot, the coastal promenade and the statue of Brigitte Bardot. To get back to the hotel you will have to ring the bell and give your name and room number.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    First, there's the setting: a breathtaking view of Buzios, the Orla Bardot, the sea, the harbour, the bay and the mountains. At night time, the ambiance is most romantic thanks to the candles laid out around the room. Then comes the gastronomy of the Café Atlantico: Brazilian and international fusion cuisine prepared by an Argentinean and Spanish chef. Meals are served throughout the day from 11:00am to 11:00pm but you may just want to have a pizza for lunch from the snack bar El Deck at the foot of Orla Bardot, unless you would rather spend the day at praia Brava, an unspoilt beach surrounded by cliffs and rocks and renowned for its rollers and trendy atmosphere. This is the beach where you will also find the Rocka Beach restaurant which belongs to the owners of the Casa Brancas, led by the same chef. This restaurant is open for lunch and serves excellent fish and seafood. Back to the Casa Brancas and Café Atlantico, with its superb panorama, where you will enjoy a scrumptious breakfast from 7:30am to 10:30am: fresh fruit, freshly-squeezed juice, home-made cakes and even champagne! What a shame there was an extra charge for an espresso or decaf coffee!

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The seaside promenade of Orla Bardot isn't really lined by a beach, but rather a harbour. It is, however, possible to swim at praia do Canto, praia da Armaçao and praia dos Ossos. The surroundings there are superb but we recommend you head for the unspoilt creeks out of the way of the town centre: praia Joao Fernandinho and praia Joao Fernandes are great for snorkelling and praia Brava has waves big enough for surfers and kiteboarders. This is the beach where you will also find the Rocka Beach restaurant which belongs to the owners of the Casa Brancas. It is in a wild spot, with cliffs and rocks everywhere and the ambiance here is young and trendy. A lovely lawn is set up with deckchairs and mats.

    To know

    The spa features 6 massage rooms including one double room, dedicated to couples, as well as a hydromassage bath,which can be used for a fee. Yoga sessions are available and the hotel even has a beauty and hairdressing salon. Two computers are available free of charge for surfing the Internet. The car park at the entrance of the hotel is free to hotel guests but there aren't any facilities for disabled guests. Beware, the tattoos performed on the beaches and Orla Bardot are poor quality and can even be dangerous to your skin.

      The Insolito Boutique Hotel is a surprising, one-of-a-kind hotel. It takes you on a journey through the history and culture of Brazil, represented in each of the 12 guest rooms found in 3 houses. You will feel as though you are staying at a friends' house or at an aunt's country dwelling in this little green oasis overlooking beautiful Ferradura Beach in Buzios. Superb panoramic views can be enjoyed from the guest rooms, the two pools, the gastronomic restaurant and bar, the spa, and the library lounge. The private beach equipped with outstanding amenities tops off this exceptional hotel.

      The Vila D'Este is an absolutely charming Italian-inspired pousada on the slopes of Buzios. With rooms where every detail counts, 2 swimming pools with a panoramic view of the bay and mountains, a little spa, and an adorable tropical garden; this little corner of paradise is one of our favourite addresses in Buzios. It could not be better suited to honeymooning couples. Children under the age of 14 are not welcome.
