Our favourite rooms
The Black Suite has yards of windows, surrounding you with views of ocean, mountain and city, and two bathrooms. The Purple Suite is the most spacious, with an amazing marble bathroom and giant lovers’ shower. The pretty Pink Room is ideal for a couple with a child, since the room is divided into two.
La Suite's all-new infinity pool is surrounded by pea-green palms and modern scluptures, and looks out over the ocean and neighbouring islets. There's a private beach in walking distance too.
Flip-flops, sunhat and cangas for the beach.
Pets are welcome at La Suite. Smoking allowed. The hotel also offers airport transfers for €60 each way, and an insiders’ tour of Rio de Janeiro for €190. Oh, and it has its own helipad, too.
Under-fives stay free, with baby cots provided. Over-fives: €150 for an extra bed. A babysitting service is provided by the hotel maids (a small tip is suggested).
