Considered One of The Most Beautiful Hotels in South America

The Hotel Santa Teresa is one of Rio de Janeiro's newest Design Concept Hotels, and is already considered to be one of the most beautiful hotels in South America.

The hotel sits in what used to be a coffee plantation mansion, located in the noble area of Santa Teresa; the cultural and historical heart of Rio de Janeiro; and every effort has been made to restore the building with charm and sophistication.

The design and architecture of the hotel was inspired by Brazil's golden ages of coffee and cocoa, in the search for sophistication and elegance through the use of noble and ecological material from the land and culture of Brazil. Rich combinations of burnt cement, golden slate, red and dark tropical woods, banana tree fibre and other fine adornings give this hotel a feeling of tropical opulence.

Yet the Hotel Santa Teresa is more than an extraordinary hotel, it is a sanctuary in this vibrant city, offering peace-of-mind and safety to all guests with tropical gardens, panoramic pools, and beautiful rooms that all provide stunning views of the city.

Rooms here are peaceful and sophisticated, with each room and suite offering an exclusive and relaxing ambiance. The design of each room is unique and luxurious. Some rooms offer bath tubs made of marbled cement, others fitted with golden slate and Ypê wood floors. Most suites have a magnificent veranda, an ideal spot to enjoy a caipirinha while admiring the toucans and marmosets in the palm trees. Other rooms have beautiful and unique views of Guanabara Bay, the city and the marvellous sun setting into Tijuca Mountain.

The impressive list of facilities at the Hotel Santa Teresa includes the complete Natura SPA, where luxurious tropical detail is combined with subtle sophistication, and guests can indulge in some of the best beauty and relaxation treatments using eco-amazonian brand Natura, as well as a large variety of anti-stress and relaxation massages for body and soul.

There is also a lounge bar classified as the most romantic in Rio de Janeiro, and the famous Térèze Restaurant with contemporary Brazilian gastronomy which won’t disappoint.
