We love Casas Brancas, an enchanting boutique hotel set on a bluff with dazzling vistas of the ocean. Its idyllic surroundings invite you to explore a multitude of small sandy coves and tropical islands or simply stroll to the centre of Búzios with its trendy shops and great eateries.
There's a blissed-out Balearic vibe to this property of sparkling white walls drenched in tropical sunshine. It’s a wonderful place to kick back and relax, whether by the pool, on your balcony or on the outdoor terrace shaded by billowing drapes. Sip a cocktail and watch the sunset before romantic candlelight transforms the atmosphere after dark. Alternatively, spoil yourself with a massage or facial in the sumptuous spa.
Calming, cool whites and creams predominate in the spacious, individually decorated guestrooms, which have stone-flagged floors and either a sea or garden view. There is a pool, a fine restaurant and a sun terrace with breath-taking bay views that lend a real sense of proximity to the ocean waves. Service is exceptional.
You can take a catamaran trip into the bay to explore some of the small tropical islands and secluded coves that dot the coastline. Or if you'd rather succumb to the air of total relaxation, there are plenty of opportunities to swim, laze on a lounger or work on your tan.
