Casa Marques Hotel

No city can compare to the vibrancy of Rio de Janeiro, something Welcome Beyond know all too well as they’ve pitched tent high in the hills above the creative Santa Teresa neighbourhood, with easy access to the tourist stops yet far enough away to be peaceful. A traditional meets modern design ethos takes advantage of 360-degree views of the city to be enjoyed poolside, from your room or atop the rooftop terrace, where you can even catch a glimpse of Christ the Redeemer.

Choose a stay in the colonial house or sleek new complex, among antique pieces and contemporary art, from classical statues to graffiti-style wall art. Fuchsia and electric blue shades are injected into furnishings and if you can tear yourself away from the vistas, colourful streets nearby make for interesting wanderings.

Suites for 2 from £94 (2-night min). 00 49 163 737 2509,
