Stay in style at the Mama Ruisa hotel in Rio de Janeiro, supremely comfortable accommodation just a few minutes from the city’s historic centre.
Owned by a family with wide-ranging experience of running world class, international hotels, Mama Ruisa is a very worthy addition to any itinerary for a luxury, tailor-made holiday to Brazil. This grand mansion stands in Santa Teresa, a highly regarded quarter of Rio Janeiro; just a few minutes from the town’s historical centre, walking distance to the famous cabaret and samba bars of Lapa, and a mere 15 minutes from the renowned Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
The hotel itself is quite a destination, too. With its palm-fringed pool, gracious lounge and open terrace overlooking Santa Teresa and beyond to the sea, it is the perfect place to relax and restore yourself after a busy day seeing the sights of Rio. Ready to experience the nearby nightlife!
