Perfectly located for guests wishing to experience both the beautiful sands and the urban jungle of Rio, a stay offers the unique opportunity to rest in ultimate luxury in the most desirable location on the Rio strip.
The hotel was originally commissioned in 1922 to mark a century of Brazilian Independence.
