Hotel Santa Teresa.

Hotel and restaurant in town. Brazil,Rio de Janeiro

Unique in the world: spectacular panoramic views of the Bay of Rio and the Centro

Monica Paixão, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

The atmosphere of this old colonial fazenda, an oasis in the heart of the historic district, combines traditional authenticity and “tropical chic” design. Whether by the pool or in the tropical gardens, the Santa Teresa boasts spectacular panoramic views of the Bay of Rio and the Centro. The unique décor of the rooms features jacaranda, cinnamon, ipe wood, natural fibres and golden slate. The wellness-centre invites relaxation to the rhythm of the Xingu massages and Amazonian oil baths. The rising-star chef reinterprets contemporary Brazilian cuisine using fresh and local ingredients, and today one of the best table in Rio. The lounge of Bar Dos Descasados, an exclusive meeting place designed by the Carioca artist Zemog, offers a selection of the best Brazilian rums, under the one-hundred-year-old arches of the former senzala slave quarters of the mansion.
