Features
Great design, Great views

Far away from the crowds on Copacabana, Mama Ruisa is a small yet sophisticated boutique hotel tucked into the hills of Santa Teresa, Rio's burgeoning artists' district. The spacious and airy seven rooms feature one-of-a-kind artworks and objets acquired by the Parisian owner at weekly flea markets, fresh wild orchids, and views of Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, or simply the inn's lush tropical grounds. Straw hats are left waiting on chaise lounges by the pool, and private drivers are at the ready for tours of Tijuca Forest and other attractions.
