Santa Teresa Hotel



Tropical, Design, Ethnic, Chic...

Set in a burst of tropical rain forest on a former coffee plantation, the Santa Teresa Hotel opened in January 2009 as a design-forward hotel paying homage to Brazil’s multicultural roots.

A historical coffee plantation mansion, located in the most noble area of Santa Teresa – cultural and historical heart of Rio de Janeiro – the boutique hotel was restored with charm and sophistication as an exclusive reference of Brazilian Tropical Design.

More than an extraordinary hotel, the Hotel Santa Teresa offers peace-of-mind and safety to all guests with tropical gardens, panoramic pools, complete Natura SPA, a lounge bar classified as the most romantic in Rio de Janeiro and Térèze Restaurant with Franco-Brazilian gastronomy by Chef Damien Montecer.

The decoration and architecture design of the hotel was inspired by the golden ages of coffee and cocoa, in the search for sophistication and elegance through the use of noble and ecological material from the land and culture of Brazil. Burnt cement, bordeaux or golden slate, red and dark tropical woods, banana tree fiber and other tropical adorning blend with contemporary design by Sergio Rodrigues, Rock Lane, Studio Vitty, Zemog and Oficina de Agosto.

A thematic journey to the lands and roots of ethnic Brazil, the Xingu and Tupi Guarani Indians, Afro-Brazilian traditions and culture, offerings of Maranhão, St. Jorge Ogum, art work from Pernambuco and handicrafts from Piauí, sacred and mystical art from Bahia and the origins of Rio de Janeiro.

From all rooms and the gardens, panoramic views of the city, the harbor and bay of Rio.
