Booked my accommodation late (as decided on a whim to come to the Olympics after realising that tickets to some of the main events were still available) - and found this gem on Expedia. It was only available because a deal with one of the country Olympic federations to use the property fell through at a late stage. Lucky for...

Villa Rio was everything we expected based on prior reviews. The facility was beautiful and the surrounding views were stunning. Caroline and Marieangela were fantastic hostess' helping us through some travel difficulties. They were a great source for local information and tips which proved very helpful. The rooms were fantastic with exceptional views. We visited during a really hot season...

This hotel is amazing. At first, you cannot really call it a "hotel" as it only has 5 rooms making you feel like being in a private home. Especially Caroline and her mother who took care of us from the beginning made us feel at home right away. The food is amazing, the only "complicated" thing is that you usually...

We went there for just a couple of days and regretted that we didn't stay longer. It is a spectacular place just outside of Rio, with a fantastic view, some peace and quiet away from the intensity of the city and excellent service. The hotel was built 2013 and is still in crisp condition with great interior. The manager Luciana...

This place is just amazing in a private domain next to Baja and facing the Two Brothers Mountains. The place is just amazing and decorated with an incredible taste. The hostess, Mariangela, could not be a better host. She is also an incredible Chef cooking for her hosts. It is a perfect place for people who stayed already in Rio....

We had the pleasure to stay at Villa Rio for Labor Day weekend. What a fantastic place! From the staff to the room everything was perfect. The owner cooked us unbelievable breakfasts each day and was kind enough to talk about the hotel and how much care goes into making it what it is. I would 100% recommend for those...

I'm accustomed to staying at traditional hotels like a Marriott, Hyatt, and the likes--especially travelling internationally. This is not a traditional hotel and I was a bit reluctant to stay, but my friend made the travel arrangements. The quaint hotel is 4-room structure sitting on the edge of the mountain overlooking the Atlantic Ocean...the views are breathtaking!! The hotel is...

A beautiful, small Hotel with very friendly staff. You do not feel like a stranger in a Hotel but like someone who is visiting his family. If you ever dreamed to have a Villa somewhere at a warm coast, then it would probably look like Villa Rio. It is a modern Building with a good Architecture and furnished with a...

During the world-cup, I stayed here with a friend to escape the hassle of Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana. It was a great experience from the moment we arrived: The house is fantastically layed-out, the very spacious room we stayed in had amazing views and a day at the pool on the terrace with those views easily beats the trip to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With one of the most beautiful views of Rio de Janeiro, Villa Rio makes a striking statement. It is located in a prestigious address on top of Joa's cliffs, from where one can admire the beautiful ocean and mountains of Rio. Villa Rio achieves a harmony with nature palpable to all who stay there. Villa Rio has been recently built in accordance with the owners' commitment to environmental sustainability. It has a contemporary style, highlighting the beauty and uniqueness of local materials and Brazilian architecture. Decorated by the owners, who carefully designed the furniture and chose the objects, the extensive use of vintage wood and local stone provides a luxurious variety of textures for eye and touch alike. Sensitive site planning and native landscaping were given paramount importance when constructing this distinctive Brazilian house. The space has its own identity, intimacy and a personalized service, making the guests feel at home. From all the ambiences guests can admire the breathtaking sea view. The infinity pool blends itself with the gorgeous landscape and creates a unique postcard of Rio. All bedrooms overlook the ocean down below and from the bathrooms guests can take their shower contemplating the spectacular view. Breakfast is homemade and products are carefully selected from local producers. Villa Rio is steps away from Joatinga Beach, a paradise for surfers and nature lovers, and a short distance by taxi from Leblon and Ipanema. ... more   less
