The Relais & Châteaux Santa Teresa is a boutique hotel adorned with natural tropical woods. The tempting outdoor pool and an ultra chic restaurant make for a thrilling stay in Rio de Janeiro.

Sophisticated, tropical and chic - this restored coffee plantation mansion with panoramic views of Rio provides a perfect blend of old and new.
Sandwiched between the towering mountains and picturesque beach of Rio de Janeiro, the Relais & Châteaux Santa Teresa is a hotel styled with natural Amazonian resources and Brazilian art. Twisting woods, coconut fibers, and gorgeous sculptural pieces make each suite feel a world away from its central city location.

Rio is a city to move in. Tap your feet to Bossa Nova in a beachside bar, bounce your hips (or watch someone else's) to a samba beat, or sweep through the air with your Capoeira partner. Keeping a keen eye on the swaying bodies occasionally reveals a famous soccer player trying to act inconspicuous as you sashay over for a dance.

The Térèze restaurant is where Relais & Châteaux Santa Teresa hotel guests nourish hungry bodies. Chef Damien Montecer creates a delicate French menu with a fiery Brazilian kick. If your muscles still need a little more attention, treat them to a therapeutic massage or rejuvenating sauna at the in-house spa.

If Rio de Janeiro could be redesigned, the Relais & Châteaux Santa Teresa would still end up in the same convenient spot. Close to the business district and a short drive from Sugarloaf mountain, Tijuca Forest, and Ipanema beach, the location has the rare skill of serving work and pleasure trips.

20 minutes away from Galeão International Airport and just 10 minutes from Santos Dumont Domestic Airport, the hotel is well positioned for further South American explorations.
