Vila da Santa Hotel is a boutique, family-owned hotel located in the historical heart of Buzios. The hotel offers a bit of white-and-blue Mediterranean charm, warmed on Brazil’s sunny Atlantic Coast. Artifacts, mementos, and simple treasures from Italy and Elba are hidden throughout the sunny courtyard.
A short walk in your Havaianahs will take you to the historic church and the beaches of Ossos, Azeda, and Azedinha. On foot, you can reach the famous Rua das Pedras (Street of Rocks) and the Orla Bardot (Bardot Boulevard) within a few breezy minutes. Some of our favorite cafes and ice cream shops are located a block or two outside the front door.
Guests Vila da Santa Hotel can enjoy the lounge, library and fireplace, bar, restaurant, and spa with sauna and jetted tub. The central patio has two small pools, one of which is heated.
A fishermen’s house from the 1940s was renovated to create the hotel’s reception, and all the color and quirk was lovingly retained.
