“Amazing boutique hotel in Rio”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was amazing!

From nicely decorated rooms with great views to the infinite pool to the friendly staff, this place is excellent in everything! Couldn't miss the "open menu" option with a great chef they have!

The place to be if you want a sophisticated, quiet and yet close enough to tourist spots (15mins to Zona Sul).

This wonderful, fancy decorated house in Joatinga, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is probably the best boutique hotel in Rio. Owned and runned by a French guy leaving in Brazil for years, the rooms are very spacious, the pool is fantastic and the breakfast is fresh and tasty. If you want to be out of the noisy Zona Sul, but yet very close from it (15min by car), you'll love La Suite. It's a place for couples seeking for peace.

We stayed here during our honeymoon in October 2009 and it was simply great. Wonderful and warm personal service. A great location with fantastic views and really lovely rooms and hotel decor. We enjoyed a 'bespoke meal' on the terrace, and generally drank far too many caiprinhas. Well worth the expense for a honeymoon treat. Service style is laid back and informal.

By far the most incredible place ~ so rare...one of a kind. Stayed in the BLACK ROOM with the most unbelievable views. After a long trip from the US, this place was perfect! The bed is very comfy and the staff fantastic. The drinks at this venue are UNBELIEVABLE...seriously the best I have ever had! The FOOD of the charts good.
Breakfast ~ this is included and so special. One day had in our room & another in the main area which is still a treat.
Lunch ~ perfect portion for a snack
Dinner ~ A 100% must! The chef is super talented. I have never had lobster this good! Seriously the best meal I have had in years.
A huge thank you to the entire staff!!!
One note...No hot tub. Wish that could be added as it would have been nice. But other than that the place is so wonderful. I want to go back NOW!

Room Tip: We saw all of them...black, white, blue, yellow were my favorite

I just came back from my stay in La Suite and I can't wait to share my experience. I have been travelling a lot and I have to say it is one of the most wonderful place I have ever been in the world ! The owner of La Suite, François-Xavier, has made my stay unforgettable. He was here to help me with everything and to make me feel at home. Beyond the wonderful view, amazing swiming pool and room ( I stayed in the Yellow), the service and the food were just perfect. It is my understanding that the Chef is new and that lot of things have recently changed in the management though. The most difficult thing for me was to go out of La Suite and visit the city of Rio because you just want to stay by the pool and enjoy the amazing food!

Room Tip: All the rooms have an amazing view on the see with private terrace, so no worries they are all great...

For our first trip to Rio with my wife what an amazing surprise we had when we arrived at La Suite and saw the view!!!
François-Xavier the owner welcomed us with the famous caipirinha and took care of us during the all stay giving us tips for visits, restaurants & night life...
We stayed in the White Suite that we loved, from our bed and the private terrace where we were taking breakfast the view was really breathtaking,
The day we arrived the new La Suite's chef Ricardo Hiltz made a special romantic dinner for us and it has been so far the best meal we had during our all stay in Brazil. The menu was a blind menu and the surprise was beyond expectation. La Suite's staff also was always very helpful and nice, we stayed the last 2 days whithout going out enjoying the infinity pool and the company of the other guests and it was like if La Suite was our home in Rio!
We loved Rio and for sure it wouldn't be the same if we had stayed in any other place...

Room Tip: The White Suite is amazing and we saw also the Black Suite which is their best room...

we loved la suite for its awesome location, very private feel, beautiful nearby beach and overall service, but found that the hotel needs some improvements to return to its glory days: the design is immecable, but the pool peeling off, the room had an outstanding view, but needed repainting...overall, nothing can beat the views of rio from the infinity pool and the feeling that you live in your very private beverly hills type mansion...we would certainly return, hopefull we'll find it even more glamorous than this time around...
