Hotel Santa Teresa
Panoramic views of the city, beach and Guanabara Bay
Built on a historical colonial farm site in one of Rio’s most aristocratic areas, and enjoying fabulous panoramic views of the city, harbor and Guanabara Bay from every room, Hotel Santa Teresa has been elegantly restored to create a charming, luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful retreat.
Each of the 40 rooms here are contemporary, sophisticated and impeccably styled with signature pieces by brazillian designers and artists including Sergio Rodrigues, Studio Vitty and Rock Lane. Restaurant Tèréze serves innovative Brazilian dishes in a setting of textural stone and warm recycled timbers while The `Descasados’ Bar, built under the ancient arches of slave quarters of the old mansion, offers stunning sunset views and a real sense of the building’s history. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the pool area is a tranquil oasis in which to unwind while the spa offers indulgent treatments for anyone looking for a little pampering.
With its preserved architecture, charming cobblestone lanes, old mansions, colourful handicraft stores, bars and restaurants, Santa Teresa is one of the most picturesque and vibrant neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro. Offering quick and easy access to all of this, as well as world famous sites such as Christ Statue, Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches and the Museum of Modern Art, Hotel Santa Teresa offers a fantastic base for exploration whilst remaining the perfect idyllic refuge.
Hotel Santa Teresa is an old colonial fazenda in the very cultural and historical heart of Rio.
