One of my global favourites

Boutique to the core, this is one of my top 5 favourite hotels. It's position above the bay in Buzios is unsurpassed: the master suite has a large semi circular enclosed verandah with white curtains looking directly out over the waterfront with a large jacuzzi to relax in. The bedroom is large with... read more

In a privilege view and location at Morro do Humaira. If you can afford the master Suite with an incredible view of the bay, a romantic and nice exclusive pool/Jacuzzi just for you and your love facing the ocean. Just beautiful!

We had a lovely relaxing stay in Villa D'este on our honeymoon. The decor is beautiful, very unique and interesting and our room was lovely, overlooking the pool with a nice big bed! Breakfasts were delicious and so were the evening meals - the restaurant has a lovely view of the town itself and bay and has a nice chilled... More

This was the best food we had during our week in Buzios. Grilled seafood and fish stays in my mind with delight. I do not remember the starters we choose, only that they also were delicious. A splendid view from the dining table due to the high location.

There are probably six or seven really nice high-end restaurants. We attempted to go to this one and were turned away as they do not open for dinner until....10pm. Casas Bracas was happy to serve us at 8pm and, as always, had very good food and impeccable service.

Although this is a hotel restaurant (which I generally veer away from), this hotel has exceptionally great food. (And we were not staying there.) We were with 4 people and everyone had a great meal. Not super expensive compared to the over overpriced nice restaurants in Buzios. The hotel, which overlooks the Bay, also has such a beautiful view and... More
