Guest Testimonial

Thank you for upholding the A&K standard to which we have become accustomed over the years. Nothing replaces sheer competence in travel planning.

- RK, Bristol



Rio's hippest new neighbourhood, the bohemian district of Santa Teresa boasts superb panoramic views over the city, harbour and bay of Rio and is close to Tijuca forest and the Statue of Christ at Corcovado. Old colonial buildings are being restored to create an arty district away from the tourists and bustle of Copacabana and Ipanema beaches for those looking for a quiet retreat.

The Hotel Santa Teresa was a historical coffee plantation mansion, now restored with charm and sophistication as a tranquil boutique hotel with tropical gardens, pool, complete Natura SPA, a lounge bar which we would say was one of the most romantic in Rio de Janeiro and Térèze Restaurant with Franco-Brazilian gastronomy by Chef Damien Montecer. The decoration and architecture design of the hotel was inspired by the golden ages of coffee and cocoa, incorporating tropical woods, natural materials and indigenous crafts with contemporary design by Brazilian designers.
