Hotel Santa Teresa MGallery

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Stay at Hotel Santa Teresa MGallery

Hotel Santa Teresa is perched on a hillside overlooking the twinkling lights of Rio and Guanabara Bay below. It is worth forgoing a central location for this charming retreat in the bohemian Santa Teresa district. The property dates back to 1850 when it was the farmhouse for a working coffee plantation. Santa Teresa Hotel keeps its connection with its rural past. Entering the gardens, hummingbirds dart between flowers and soft lighting detracts from the glare of the busy city. After a day of exploring the hustle and bustle of Rio, retreat to the poolside bar and sip a caipirinha cocktail as the sun sinks over Guanabara Bay.

The food is exceptional – the restaurant is renowned as one of Rio’s top cuisine experiences. The bedrooms and interiors reflect the rich tapestry of Brazil’s diverse regions, from Bahia to Minas Gerais. We highly recommend one of the rooms with a private balcony as you won’t be able to stop admiring the views from up here. The Spa is also excellent, with a wide range of beauty treatments and a Hammam.

True Travel was an absolute pleasure to deal with as we planned a special anniversary trip to South Africa. We worked with Felix who was always helpful, responsive and super informative. Everything was 5 star and perfectly planned. The hotels were superb and the tour guides were top notch. Felix filled our days with great activities and booked all of our delicious meals. The app kept us informed during the planning and as we traveled. The transfers were prompt, safe and informative. A FABULOUS trip all around. This was our second time using True Travel and I recommend True Travel to friends and family (and I already have). We cant wait to plan another special trip with them!

These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
