Spent 4 nights in the bungalow of this gorgeous pousada. Bungalow for sure is the best room choice providing 100% privacy with private balcony.Canadian owner Bindu together with her french husband do a outstandingly obliging job. Vinicius was guiding us on a favela-tour, german Annette was our guide to Pico de Tijuca- both excellent and definitely worth the money. Good... More

Our hosts were marvelous and knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the cidade maravilhosa - from local botequims, football matches at maracana, the relentless music scene, flea markets, trips in the surrounding region.. they knew it all. (They also made the best caipirinhas around, which we sipped many an afternoon in the shade by the pool). The rooms are... More

We had a fantastic time in Rio and could not have stayed in a better place. Bindu is an amazing host, full of great tips and advice and can help you organise different activities or transfers/taxis/which bus to take. Casa Beleza itself is beautiful and we loved having breakfast in the garden in the morning watching the monkeys overhead and... More

We absolutely enjoyed a week in Casa Beleza. Bindu and Antoine took good care of us and helped with a good advice. We stayed in the spacious loft and loved this room. Breakfest is great. If you love nature, this is a perfect place to spot a lot of different species of bird, as well as marmorsets, lizards, bats etc.... More

Rooms with comfortable and stylish interior, enough place, with a look on Rio,,,, a beautiful garden with a pool, a very good breakfast, but most delighting... More

This was our first trip to Brazil and Casa Beleza was our first stop. We arranged in advance with Beleza for an airport pickup. Given Rio taxi rates and travel times, it was more than worthwhile. Even better, our driver (Junior) made us feel welcome from the beginning. The Beleza owners are a delightful couple, Bindu and Antoine. They made... More

We are so happy to have found Casa Beleza, a beautiful pousada in the charming Santa Teresa neighborhood. The grounds and our room were perfect (we stayed in the Orange room, which overlooks the pool on one side and the terrace on the other). Our host, Bindu, made us feel welcome from the beginning (with help from the affable, laid... More

We had 5 nights here in mid-May and of all the places we stayed at on our 6+ weeks around Sth America, Casa Beleza was our favourite - a lovely garden/small pool (see photo), comfortable room and very helpful hosts to give advice about their city, answer any questions, etc. So different to some of those huge, impersonal hotels (often...

We recently spent five nights in this B&B, and it is wonderful! We were picked up as arranged from the airport by Junior, who is friendly and speaks good English. Casa Beleza is a beautiful house in a lovely situation. It's secluded position out of the centre was for us a plus point. The hosts Antoine and Bindu are exceptionally... More

This hotel really made for an incredible stay in Rio. It is tucked away in the hills of the Santa Teresa neighborhood which is a charming, quiet area with a great selection of nearby restaurants and a great view of the city. The house is gorgeous and surrounded by nature. There is enough privacy that you feel as if you... More
