Hotel Spa Santa Teresa - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
About this Chic Retreat
New Ethnic Design Concept: Hotel Spa Santa Teresa is the latest stunning addition to the small luxury hotel scene in Rio de Janeiro. Located in the district of Santa Teresa it is in the cultural heart of the city, between the Christ Redeemer and Lapa. This small boutique hotel has some of the most picturesque views of the historical centre of Rio de Janeiro and is no more than 15 minutes from some of the best beaches.
The district of Santa Teresa is the artistic area of the city where the colonial and art déco architecture have been preserved as well as the paved streets home to the yellow tram.
The tropical design decoration throughout this chic retreat was inspired by the African and Indian roots of the North and East of Brazil and from the original era of coffee, sugarcane & cocoa plantations. All of the spacious rooms & suites feature pieces of furniture and art created by Brazilian designers, not forgetting the essentials such as LCD TVs and WIFI. The Superior rooms feature furniture designed by Rocklane and Carassas with tropical Ype wood floors. The Deluxe rooms have either a king-size bed or twin beds - some have enormous verandahs. Chairs by designer Sergio Rodriguez are a feature of this room and the bathroom has a large polished concrete bath. The Junior Suites have stunning views across the mountains and have a living room, king-size bed and showcase some of the best design pieces from RockLane, Sergio Rodriguez, Carassas, Zemodg e Oficinia de Agosto. The Master Suite is along the same lines as the Junior Suite, but bigger. The Presidential Suite is an experience in itself; with views over Rio de Janeiro bay and the Santa Teresa hills, this enormous suite also features a stunning bathroom made from stone and tropical woods with a Studio Vitty bathtub.
Hidden within this small chic retreat's tropical gardens, there is a 25m polished green slate swimming pool which has far-reaching panoramic views across the whole of Rio de Janeiro. The Spa offers facials, massages and relaxing body treatments using the Amazonian brand of Natura.
For food lovers, the restaurant Térèze, with a contemporary wood, linen & steel design is a popular meeting point with the high society of Cariocas and offers the best of French cuisine with a Brazilian twist, created by talented Chef Damien Montecer. The samba bars and gastronomic restaurants in Santa Teresa create an authentic atmosphere in the heart of the city and are within minutes of Hotel Spa Santa Teresa.
