Housed in a mid-century villa and perched at the highest point of Rio´s bohemian Santa Teresa neighborhood, Maria Santa Teresa is exclusive but with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Across the street from one of Rio´s top restaurants, Aprazivel, guests can choose to lounge at the hotel all day and night in calm, or take a quick ride into the city for beaches, shopping, and nightlife.
The vivid and easy-going personality of Maria Santa Teresa can be seen and felt throughout the hotel´s special design. One-of-a-kind design pieces including antique nautical optics, local art, colorful furniture, and a world-class photography collection reflect our passions, while our staff is on call to help guests in creating their dream-experience in Rio, the “marvelous city!”
Design Hotels is global collection of 260 individual hotel properties. But more than a collection of hotels, the company is a collection of stories. Each property reflects the ideas of a visionary hotelier, an "Original," someone with a passion for genuine hospitality and cultural authenticity, for thought-provoking design and groundbreaking architecture.
