Hotel Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro’s Hotel Santa Teresa features Amazonian folk sculptures alongside midcentury furniture by Brazilian modernist Sergio Rodrigues. Situated on the grounds of what was a 19th-century fazenda (plantation), the hotel now includes 44 suites decorated with such indigenous materials as coconut and banana fibers and canela wood. Take a swim in the green slate swimming pool, sample a caipirinha de maracujá (passionfruit and cachaça cocktail) on the terrace bar, and explore the hip Santa Teresa neighborhood, full of restored mansions and music-filled bars. —Vanessa Gregory Hotel Santa Teresa, 55/(0) 21-2222-2755, from $325. This appeared in the December/January 2010 issue.
