Santa Teresa Hotel, Rio de Janeiro


A rich history and elegant décor with awe-inspiring views of the city.

Once a grand colonial mansion and now a luxurious boutique hotel, Santa Teresa offers bags of character and evokes Brazilian history through its architecture and décor. Discover spacious suites where vibrant artwork adorns the walls. Enjoy breathtaking views from your lofty position across the rooftops to Guanabara Bay.

With just 44 rooms, Santa Teresa provides the luxury and amenities of a five-star hotel combined with the air of a hillside retreat. It’s a wonderful escape from the bustling city around you. Sink into a comfy four-poster bed or head to the rooftop pool to unwind in the sun on oversized loungers. The view from up here is second to none.

The cobbled streets that surround the hotel are too tempting not to explore. Known as Rio’s answer to Montmartre, you’ll find art galleries and intimate cafes tucked away in this bohemian hub. There’s plenty more to see nearby too. Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain are both within easy reach, as are the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches.

After you’ve worked up an appetite sightseeing, head to the on-site Tereze restaurant for exceptional food in an enchanting setting. With a sense of a luxurious treehouse, dining on imaginative French and Brazilian cuisine here is something you’ll never forget.
