Maria Santa Teresa is Rio de Janeiros most unique villa property with a distinctive personality that creates a perfect home-away-from-home for any group or private event. With personalized service as top priority, guests are welcomed to a world where the best of Rio is just a simple request away.

The House

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!”

  • Lobby Bar: The spacious lobby and reception is the perfect start for a stay at Maria Santa Teresa with a quaint bar serving breakfast in the mornings and cocktails in the evenings. Design highlights like an antique re-constructed Harley Davidson and unique hand-crafted wooden furniture make the lobby both comfortable and stylish.
  • Pool Terrace: During the days and evenings, the Pool Terrace is the social focal point of the hotel with the best view in Santa Teresa, a expertly-service bar and barbecue area, and the perfect lounge chairs to enjoy the signature Caipirinha with the Brazilian sun.
  • Cigar Lounge: Downstairs is the intimate and exclusive cigar lounge with a selection of Cuban cigars and an “honesty bar” allowing guests to sample the selection of Whisky and Rum at their leisure.
