    To know

    In the 19th century, Santa Teresa was the fashionable part of town until the rich and famous migrated to Copacabana in the 1960s. This charming neighbourhood is now enjoying something of a renaissance, however, with a number of French-run pousadas opening their doors. Its elevated position on the hillsides above Rio means that the air is cleaner than in Copacabana and Ipanema. This boutique hotel even has its own mascot: Nino da Costa, a colourful parrot!

      The Santa Teresa is a charming new hotel tucked away in the charming district of the same name located above Rio and criss-crossed by the typical yellow tramways. The hotel is now also a member of the prestigious Relais et Châteaux group, a sign of character, charm, courtesy, tranquillity, and fine cuisine. The gardens and panoramic pool terrace at the hotel are particularly pleasant. An ideal destination for a romantic break.

      • Location 4.97

      Just as its name suggests, the Marina All Suites is a hotel consisting only of suites, and it overlooks the beach in Leblon, a very sophisticated residential neighbourhood in Rio. From the most exclusive suites, which were designed by seven different designers, down to those that are 'basic' by name but not by nature (they measure between 39 and 55 m²), each has a small lounge, and many of them are also provided with a kitchen. The hotel's two public bars are very impressive. While Bar do Lado is remarkable in itself, it is Bar d'Hotel that really catches the eye with its very trendy local clientele. The establishment also has a swimming pool and a gym, but the best surprise is to be found up on the 16th floor, where there is a lounge room, a computer room and... a home cinema where you can watch films on the big screen!

    • Caesar Park Caesar Park Caesar Park

      • Value for money 7.14
      • Location 6.33

      This hotel is a member of the Caesar Park chain, which owns various establishments in Brazil and South America, and stands facing Ipanema Beach in one of Rio's smartest neighbourhoods. With its well-designed lobby, decorated in a somewhat geometrical fashion and cleverly lit almost entirely by artificial light, this place just oozes class and elegance. The guest rooms here are very spacious but do not all have a view of the ocean, with some even only having a side view. The decor is traditional and almost European in style, rather at odds with the contemporary feel of the communal areas but nevertheless particularly well-balanced. Head up to the top floor of the hotel for the most spectacular views of the beach, maybe a bite to eat, and a paddle in the pool, or perhaps you'd prefer a visit to the hotel's well-equipped little gym. The cuisine is excellent here too!

      • Location -

      This is a peaceful tropical paradise that you really won't want to leave, even to go explore Rio! First, the place is so charming, it really makes you feel like lazing around and doing absolutely nothing, and second, the area in which the hotel is located is quite a way from Copacabana and the city's other attractions. Having said that, the elegant surrounding neighbourhood and the sprawling lush green trees of the Tijuca Forest make for some beautiful views. With its 6 guest rooms (or suites), each decorated with antique items and decorative details bought who knows where in the world, the Gávea Tropical resembles an upmarket pousada. On arrival you will be welcomed by the lovely Aliny, wife of John, the owner, who will soon set about spoiling and indulging you as if you were one of the family. The icing on the cake, though, has to be the little spa area.
