Located around the majestic Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro is an enchanting city, dominated by the imposing Christ the Redeemer statue on the Corcovado Mountain. Situated between the tropical forest and the ocean, the surrounding nature is part of its urbanism. The Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon beaches are all part of the city as is Tijuca, the world’s largest urban forest, with an incredibly diverse flora and fauna.

The city, nestled between sea and mountains, is one of contrasts like for example, the chic residential quarters of Ipanema and Papa along the immaculate beaches and the favelas on the surrounding hillsides.

In the center of the city, modern office buildings stand side by side with elegant colonial structures, and in the antique dealers’ quarter of Lapa, people dance the samba at night. Vibrant and warm, Rio, for many people, invokes an incomparable way of living, to the rhythm of soccer, the samba and the legendary icon of the city; Carnival in Rio!

Ideally located in Joatinga, the Beverly Hills of Rio de Janeiro, La Suite is a veritable cocoon of luxury on the side of a hill. This small and chic family boarding house has the double advantage of being far from the crowds and the tourists as well as offering guests direct access to the most select site in this prestigious quarter: the Joatinga Beach.

The owner of the hotel, François-Xavier Dussol, a Parisian who settled in Rio, is also the designer and creator of this luxurious and trendy boarding house. La Suite and La Maison, his previous creation, located nearby, are the hot spots of the bay.

For both La Suite and La Maison, Dussol considered every detail with great care in order to make the establishment a truly exceptional site. He blended old objects and works of contemporary designers, like this Philippe Starck crystal chandelier in the Grand Salon, with its period furniture and ultra luxurious modern comfort.

The 7 suites, named for their color, are nothing short of remarkable. The Yellow suite is a veritable tribute to the sun in Rio. The Pink suite, the most feminine, is an 18th century boudoir, and the Blue suite, the most masculine of all, is counterbalanced by its immaculate white tones and the transparency of its crystal light fixtures.

The romantic Green suite is characterized by its green glass Murano chandeliers, whereas the Purple suite is very chic and British. The pure and immaculate White suite offers guests a touch of pop fantasy, with its Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe portraits, while the sumptuous and mysterious Black suite is lit by a black glass Murano chandelier.

The brilliantly designed accommodations are original and luxurious without being ostentatious and have huge windows enabling guests to fully enjoy the breathtaking view of the bay. In this luxurious family home, guests can take a dip in the huge infinity swimming pool facing the ocean, or in the garden pool, in the midst of tropical vegetation. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the spectacular terrace of this haven of peace, facing the ocean and the imposing Pedra da Gabea and Ipanema in the distance.

Guests can, if they wish, reach the hotel by helicopter since La Suite has a landing strip on the roof.
