La Suite, Rio de Janeiro
|Rua Jackson de Figuereido, 501 Joatinga, 22611-000, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro State, BRAZIL.|
Description: La SuiteA chip off the La Maison block, La Suite shares an owner, and a concept - a tiny and impossibly stylish luxury guest house, far enough off the main tourist drag to escape the crowds, but close enough to feel like you're in on the action. In La Suite's case, this means Joatinga, one of Rio's most exclusive residential districts, at the end of a gated street, with some of the best ocean views in the city and access to a well-kept secret: Joatinga Beach.
Described by THE TIMES as a "contender for the best appointed hotel in the world", has selected by TRAVEL + LEISURE as being one of the 50's more romantic places in the world and in the It List as one of the 25 best hotels in the world.
