Loved every aspect of this home away from home. My girlfriend went for work at the windsor with an easy boat ride. I went surfing, biking, lying at the beach, or chilling at the pool. In an hour you are in central rio by bus, with the new metro line this will be even easier. I would recommend this to... More

We stayed at the studio at Utropico over the hectic new year period, looking for somewhere slightly away from the mayhem of Copacabana and Ipanema. We were not disappointed! The Ilha Primeira setting is stunning and the hospitality offered by Sylvia and Francesco second to none. Not to mention the fantastic caipirinhas and New Years / Revillon party :) Highly... More

Let me start by saying that I have stayed in over 50 hotels around the world and never have we felt more welcomed and at home than here. We found the "guest house" on Trip Advisor, as we were looking for a final place to stay in Rio, after returning from Ilha Grande. I reserved via email and paid a... More

I knew I was going to find paradise. I have read and heard about this secret spot. But getting there is simply a celebration to the senses. Starting with the boat ride that gets you there in 5 minutes ... you start enjoying big, before arriving. The view, the water and those mountains that you can only see there ...... More

We spent two days in Utropico for our honeymoon and we had a great stay! We we're picked up at the airport by Christian, which was very convenient. Utropico was our first stay in Brazil and it's a very cool experience to take the boat to the island. When you're in the guesthouse, you feel like you're in the middle... More

This was the last stop on a wonderful trip to Brazil and was definitely our favourite lodging place. Arriving at Utropico is fun in itself - it is situated on an island called Primeira within a pretty lagoon close to Barra - it felt like the "Venice" of Rio with waterways and canals lined with attractive houses and villas.

We came to Utropico after a week travelling in Brazil, and even though we had read the glowing reviews, the serenity right in the middle of Rio still came as a surprise.

Amazing and exotic place to stay. You can calm down, relax and enjoy life in paradise - in the never-sleeping Rio. During our two week visit in Rio, we stayed in Utropico and another guesthouse in Santa Teresa. There is no words to describe how much better choice Utropico was! Should have stayed there all the time :-) . Special... More
