Vila Santa Teresa Hotel

Vila Santa Teresa may be one of the world’s most luxurious small hotels, but it feels like the house of a rather rich friend. The staff, who’ve been with the family for 20 years, treat each guest as an individual. Those who’ve stayed talk of exceptional service - impeccable yet personal, possible because there are only 7 rooms. Fancy a favourite wine to accompany your grilled escalope? There it is waiting, delightfully chilled. From the sink-into sofas to the gleaming glass tables to the massage under the mango tree, there’s perfection in every detail. Breakfast is served on the lawn or at the large table, and cocktails and canapés in the library or by the pool.


The Santa Teresa neighborhood has a privileged location, with easy access to downtown Rio de Janeiro, Botafogo Beach, Marina da Glória and a 15-minute drive from Santos Dumont Airport. The hotel provides stunning views of Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf Mountain and is the perfect place to base yourself when visiting this wonder of the world. Although only 20 minutes by car from the tourist bustle of Copacabana beach, Villa Santa Teresa Hotel provides both the privacy and tranquility of an urban retreat.
