Hotel Santa Teresa Rio, an old colonial fazenda located right in the heart of historic Santa Teresa district, is a member of the new MGallery brand by Sofitel and is wonderful addition to the hotel scene in Rio. Occupying a listed nineteenth-century mansion perched high over Guanabara Bay, the Santa Teresa evokes a by-gone Brazil from the golden age of coffee and cocoa plantations.

The rooms and suites at Hotel Santa Teresa Rio are spacious, individually decorated and showcase the various regions of Brazil in their décor, from tropical linens to Portuguese ceramic tiles, and indigenous arts and crafts. Most rooms have balconies with views to die for over Guanabara Bay, the Organ Mountains or Corcovado, and there are tranquil gardens where hummingbirds, toucans and monkeys feast on the fruits and flowers.

A delightful pool area with sun-loungers is the perfect spot to relax and there is also a first class spa featuring Ofuro baths, Hammam saunas and beauty treatments using the eco-Amazonian brand Natura. The gourmet restaurant, run by French chef Damien Montecer, offers a fusion of cuisines from around the world and has become renowned across Rio. Nearby are wonderfully eclectic restaurants, bars and ateliers where you will gain an insight into the bohemian Rio.
