Travelers who do not need to be close to Rio’s beaches and who appreciate a laid-back bohemian chic style will fall in love with this hotel on a hillside. Santa Teresa is a charming part of Rio de Janeiro with winding, narrow streets, colonial mansions, and little boutiques, a spot favored by local artists and in-the-know tourists. The modern meets colonial style Hotel Santa Teresa is an eclectic mix of indigenous art and modern Brazilian design. The large rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished with Brazilian hardwoods and natural fabrics. There is an outdoor swimming pool in the garden planted with jasmine, a spa, a restaurant, and a terrace bar with superb city views.
