Set on a former coffee plantation on a hill overlooking Rio’s red-tile roofs, the beautifully restored 44-room Santa Teresa Hotel feels like the home of a globe-trotting artist. The aroma of coffee lingers in the air, guests at Dos Descasados bar lounge in oversize armchairs, and visitors are warmly welcomed like old friends. Innovative interiors are equal parts rustic and hip: burnt-cement bathtubs and woven-straw rugs are mixed in with modern, low-lying furnishings and sculptures by notable Brazilian artists including Sergio Rodriguez and Rock Lane. After a day exploring vibrant Rio, take a plunge in the garden pool, surrounded by swaying palm trees.

Room to Book:

Ask for a Deluxe Suite with views of the Corcovado-Rio's enormous cliff-top statue of Jesus.

Insider Tip:

The carefully curated art in the hotel represents a thematic journey through Brazil's history and geography. Be sure to ask for details and descriptions during your walk-through at check-in.
