This Philippe Starck-designed hotel is in keeping the fashionable neighbourhood of Ipanema. Opened in 2007, it has become a firm favourite with the in-crowd. The 91 rooms – each with a private balcony – offer modern luxury and stylish comfort. The rooftop sundeck has an infinity pool that seems to overflow right on to Ipanema Beach, with fabulous views of the coastline and the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer. Attention is given to every detail – from use of the finest materials to the latest technology and the high quality restaurant.
Exquisite five star option on Ipanema beach.
This really was the holiday of a lifetime and thanks to expedition leader Hannah and her fantastic team was it was a magical experience. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking and the history of polar exportation, and my hero Sir Ernest Shackleton in particular was vividly, brought to life. To be able to follow his journey and pay my respects to him at his graveside in South Georgia was very emotional and something I will never forget.
