Hotel Santa Teresa Rio McGallery
The Hotel Santa Teresa Rio McGallery by Sofitel provides peaceful a peaceful escape from the busy streets of Rio hidden within an oasis of calm.
The pool and terrace of the Hotel Santa Teresa face the twinkling lights of the city over Guanabara Bay and this is a fantastic spot for those who prefer to combine the hustle and bustle of Rio with some peace and quiet to escape to. The Tereze restaurant is excellent and the chef and kitchen staff pride themselves on keeping up with some of the world-class cuisine available in the city beyond.
The bar and bedrooms have been creatively designed to reflect the property’s heritage as a former coffee plantation as well as remaining true to the culture of the creative and arty Santa Teresa neighbourhood. There is also an excellent spa with a full range of treatments using local Brazilian products as well as international brands. The bar area has been designed to perfection and must be one of the ‘coolest’ places in the city to have a cocktail.
A stay at the Hotel Santa Teresa gives guests the chance to access this charming region of Rio, which compliments the high-octane glitz and glamour that spills onto Ipanema beach below. With over 44 rooms, on paper this hotel seems big but, once there, it feels intimate, cosy and special.
