Our favourite rooms
Maximise the panoramic views from your elevated Santa Teresa locale in any of the first floor suites. For unabashed, all-out decadent luxe, the sprawling Loft Suite with its wrap-around porch and views on par with famed tourist attractions is worth the splurge.
Consider yourself warned: slide into one of the oversized sun beds framing the unheated outdoor pool trimmed with tropical flora and you might not make it to all the places on your to-see list. Especially following a few rounds from the Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar.
Forget the flip-flops; you’ll find a pair of Havaianas – the signature footwear of laid-back Brazilians – in your room.
Smoking is only allowed in designated outdoor areas.
Small dogs are welcome to stay with you for no extra charge. See more pet-friendly hotels in Rio de Janeiro.
