A first class, service-orientated designer hotel adds a splash of arty innovation to the smart beach-side neighbourhood Leblon,

Leblon is without doubt Rio’s most prestigious neighbourhood: chic, affluent, and beloved of people who work in the arts and media. Adjoining Ipanema, and backing onto the city’s attractive tree-lined lagoon, the beachfront and adjacent streets are lined with relatively low-rise apartment blocks, designer boutiques, innovative restaurants, trendy piano bars and nightclubs.  It is here that you’ll find the award-winning designer hotel Janeiro, the style of which blends well with the creative style of the district.

It’s quite small – 53 rooms – conforming to the scale of the surrounding streets, and minimalist, but no expense has been spared in the furnishings and fabrics which feature muted Atlantic Oceanside colours. All guest rooms have at least a partial ocean view, even from the bathrooms. Works of art and photography are sprinkled throughout the property and the rooftop area sports a pool, bar and terrace with views down over the beach.

What our clients say

  • Highlights?: Getting wet at Iguazu on the boat trip. Cooking in Stella's home on Flavours of Bahia tour.

    JM, Glasgow
  • Highlight: Walking on the trails through the rainforest on Ilha Grande.

    CB, Leeds
  • Most memorable experience: "There are too many! looking down from Christ the Redeemer at sun set in Rio, using the local buses to get about town, sitting at an outdoor cafe on Ilha Grande and swimming in the natural pool outside of Paraty."

    ZB, London
  • Our trip was most enjoyable particularly because of the wide variety of locations and experiences. Difficult to pick out the most memorable - but the Anavilhanas l Lodge was quite outstanding.

    PA, Bourne End
  • Most Memorable Moment?: We were lucky enough to have a major thunder storm overnight at the Iguazu falls and these were unbelievably spectacular the next day.  Also the Lencois Marahenas was utterly beautiful and quite different to anything else we saw.

    KT, Andover
  • Expert help in tailoring a holiday that took in the nature of the country (the Amazon), the cities (Manaus, Rio and Salvador) and the idyllic beaches of Bahia - all in a not overly rushed two weeks.
