Our favourite rooms
For lots of space and a view, opt for a Deluxe, where ocean visions and Sergio Rodrigues wooden chairs are offered out on the prime balcony spots. If a leather-upholstered day-bed strikes your fancy, you’ll need a Suite.
There’s a heated marble infinity pool on the roof overlooking Ipanema Beach.
A bikini for every day of your stay, but don’t bother with flip flops – the hotel will give you a pair for free.
Small pets are allowed, as is smoking (on balconies only). Two bedrooms have wheelchair access.
