Hotel Santa Teresa MGallery is a historic property that dates back to 1850. Find refuge hidden away in a charming colonial cobblestoned area known as Rio's Montmatre.
A truly urban retreat, the Hotel Santa Teresa MGallery makes its home in a vibrant corner of Rio de Janeiro. Montmatre is known for its hilly landscape, narrow, twisting roads, crumbling 19th-century pastel mansions, and interesting street art.
White rooms and suites are accentuated with wood headboards, floors, and beamed ceilings, giving each space an earthy feel. Brazilian art adds pops of color. Some abodes are connected to the lush gardens, brimming with fruit trees. Take a snooze in the king size beds and freshen up with the indulgent L’Occitane amenities.
Lounge by the stylish swimming pool overlooking Guanabara Bay, with views across red rooftops, rolling green mountains, and puffy white clouds. The entire area is surrounded by swaying palms, making guests feel like they are in their own private paradise tucked away within the buzzing city. Nibble on a snack at the Pool Bar as you relax the day away.
At the Terez Restaurant, dine on local cuisine with a French twist paired with wine. In the evenings sip on a cocktail in the Bar dos Descasados as a live singer croons. On the weekends, a DJ keeps the place lively for happy hour and on Sundays a live jazz concert is the perfect soundtrack to watch the sunset.
Indulge your senses in the spa at Hotel Santa Teresa MGallery. Pick from a menu of massages, scrubs, and facial treatments. Natural ingredients and oils are applied on the skin for total body and mind renewal.
Feel embraced by the serenity of the Convent of Santa Teresa built in 1629. Picasso, Dali, and Monet artwork is featured in the nearby Museu da Chacara do Ceu, housed in a mansion hugged by shaded gardens. Santa Teresa feels more like a small village in comparison to the electric buzz of Rio’s other neighborhoods, but it booms to life during the annual Carnival.
Not far away find Rio’s top sights; the towering Christ the Redeemer statue and the Sugar Loaf. Hop on a yellow tram (the last operating streetcar in Rio) and slowly make your way downtown, or head to lively Copacabana to people-watch on the beach.
