Hotel Santa Teresa

Along a sequence of streets leading up to the historic hillside town of Santa Teresa, a series of gritty neighborhoods are crossed before coming to this hillside sanctuary that in recent years has become one of the hottest barrios in Rio. Inspired by the colonial estates that harvested coffee and cocoa, this former plantation with its white stucco facade and terracotta roof has been reconceived with a dazzling interior of reclaimed wood floors and two story atrium staircase alongside period stone walls illuminated in candlelit lanterns.

While walking to the beach won't be an option, a grassy resort area overlooks the city of Rio with rectangular black-bottom pool surrounded in teak cabanas and staff oozing South American sex appeal in between rounds of caipirinhas and mojitos. In between laps, an in-house spa soothes with hammam, sauna and series of baths. In-house gourmet eatery Tereze, led by a former-Gordon Ramsey and Alain Ducasse chef, is located in an adjacent space in a hand painted Matisse-inspired dining room with solid-wood club chairs and indoor-outdoor architecture that's one of Rio's great hotel eateries.
