Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue. The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing many art galleries that show contemporary art. There is also a great variety of nightlife in the neighbourhood, which buzzes with many options for every taste.

"Estatua de Tom Jobim"
reviewed November 13, 2019 by PrestonGuild
Tom Jobim is regarded as the father of bossa nova. He wrote the music for The Girl from Ipanema at a restaurant in Ipanema.
This is just one of many statues you will find on the beaches of Rio usually associated with musicians or writers. This one is located where Arpoador beach begins and Ipanema beach ends.
A good spot...
"Fantastic Jewellery museum and store of Brazilian gemstones"
reviewed October 3, 2019 by Brent C
We visited the Sauer store at Sugarloaf and then the museum and store downtown in Rio. After seeing some other stores we found this to be the best. Very good service and explanations of the stones and style of jewels. Josi was wonderful in serving us. She has worked here for 30 years ! So good we bought a beautiful...
Strolling along Ipanema's affluent "Avenida Vieira Souto", a small house among all those buildings will catch immediately your attention. This house - one of the few remaining houses on Ipanema Beach - belonged to Ms. Laura Alvim, who fought, all her life, to transform it into a cultural center. She died in 1984 after officially donating the house to the...
I was harsh. I asked that there was no pork or shellfish in my food given that we were at a time when I suspect Coronavirus is about to kick off in Brazil that everything was sanitised. The food was beautifully presented, the duck maybe could have had some cranberry sauce bu5 it was lovely and the desert a combination...
The buffet of salads cheeses fruits vegetables is huge. Very good, then you have the men come around with different types of meat on a spear and carve off pieces. They bring bread, chips, potatoe. Very ,very wonderful food and service. Make a reservation. Close to the beach.
It is my 4th time in this restaurant and everytime I try a new dish and drinks. I never get disappointed! It is better to make a reservation because it gets busy very fast. If you want to stay outside, book it for an early dinner.
What a lovely hotel! It's simple but comfortable, the staff is most friendly, the rooms are cool, the bathrooms great, and it's a stone throw from Ipanema beach, what more could you want? Perhaps a nice restaurant? There is one right in the hotel, Quiteria, which cooks delicious food with local ingredients. The best octopus stew in town, and lots...
Just spent a fantastic week chilling at Hotel Arpoador, a very smart boutique beach clubhouse/hotel that's the closest thing Rio has to a Soho House. The best location of any hotel in Rio right on the beach, not across a six lane avenue like all the others. You walk barefoot out of hotel lobby onto Ipanema beach and it's the...
The Fasano was wonderful . This is a very hip and chic hotel that has staff that remembers your name. They all go out of their way to treat you like royalty. Thie is one of the best in Brazil and is in an upscale good neighborhood in Ipanema . Do yourself a favor and choose Fasano on your next...
Great location as near Ipanema and Cobacabana beaches. Lacking open air restaurants nearby though. Staff friendly, rooms impeccably clean and lovely shower and toiletries. Breakfast offered a good variety and good quality, everything from cereal, cooked and pastries. Beach towels were on offer to take out with you.
