A luxurious ‘boutique pousada’, Quinta Azul lies in the stunning Santa Teresa hills of Rio de Janeiro, offering visitors glamorous boho chic-style accommodation in a romantic oasis of calm.

A specially refurbished 120-year-old colonial building, from the outside Quinta Azul (meaning Blue House), appears deceptively small and modest. Once past the gate, you are in a different world, an amazing use of space with designer touches in all directions, surrounded by lush green woodlands with breathtaking views of the city.

Choose from 13 beautifully designed rooms, all boasting state-of-the-art fittings and antique furniture, including 400-thread cotton sheets and soft furnishings – a few even have four-poster beds.

Lying in tranquil tropical gardens overlooking Rio, it is ideal for those after comfortable, affordable luxury to rival Rio’s top hotels.

Just 10 minutes away from Rio’s beaches, Quinta Azul sits right in the heart of lively Santa Teresa region, an artsy historic town that likes to party.
