This luxury 5-star hotel offers guests the epitome of style and sophistication in the heart of Rio. It occupies a great location in the fascinating Santa Teresa area of Rio; an artistic neighbourhood filled with colonial and neoclassical mansions, as well as Art Deco buildings. Its charming streets make the perfect place for a wander, filled with shops, bars, restaurants, museums, artisan workshops and handicraft shops. It’s an area recommended for those who prefer to avoid the main tourist districts of cities, in favour of a more authentic experience. It’s also close to lots of famous sights, and just a 25-minute drive from the airport.
Enjoy treatments such as massages and facials using Natura Beauty products in the hotel’s unique spa.
All the rooms at the Santa Teresa Hotel are professionally designed, blending contemporary and traditional styles, with subtle Asian and African accents in the form of fresh orchids, dark wood furniture and animal-skin rugs. They’re also constructed using the highest quality materials, such as hardwood floors and granite tilling in the bathrooms and equipped with superior amenities, including flat-screen TVs, WI-Fi, Egyptian cotton linen and luxurious toiletries. If money is no object, check into the Loft Suite for a 180-degree view of Guanabara Bay, Christ the Redeemer statue, and the Santa Teresa streets from its panoramic balcony. It also boasts a super king-size bed, an LCD TV, and DVD player.
After a few invigorating laps in the hotel’s pool, you’re ready for a day for sightseeing in this fascinating city. There are so many highlights, such as the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Christ the Redeemer statue and the Museum of Modern Art, to name just a few. If you want to relax, head back to Santa Teresa’s pretty cobblestone streets, where you’ll find plenty of cafes providing the perfect pit-stop, before you get ready to go out for the evening in the Largo Dos Guimaraes area just 150m from the hotel, packed with colourful shops and restaurants.
As you'd expect from a Relais Chateaux hotel, Santa Teresa offers superb dining options. The Tereze restaurant is sophisticated yet casual, serving innovative Brazilian cuisine in an eco-chic setting, which features burnt cement floors, whitewashed walls and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the area’s colonial homes. Bar Dos Descadados built under ancient arches of the slave quarters of the orld mansion provides the perfect setting for a catch up with old friends, over a delicious cocktail.
