First time we left hotel we were soon back to take off our watches and leave wallets behind..felt very uncomfortable...service by pool was terrible,... More

The hotel is wonderful, elegant, decorated with a unique style. Our room, located at the first floor, was impeccable, with a delicious view over... More

We heard how good the food was at this hotels restaurant so thought we would try it out whilst staying close by for the Football World cup. We where not disappointed. In fact, we returned the next day for breakfast. The ambiance and location are very special.

An oasis in Rio, above the hustle and bustle of the city. Secluded and discreet. Fabulous food at any hour and spacious, chic rooms with wonderful vistas.
