I loved my stay at Villa Rasa in Búzios. It was during new years and the beach in which the hotel is just in front is empty, in an area where all the other beaches are crowded. So it gave us a truly unique feeling of luxury, all that privacy. The service was really good, we were having coconut waters all the time on the beach and I was kitesurfing for most of the five days there. Yes, it can be windy at times which is great for kiting but if you like it less windy theres a pool area to relax and also wind barriers. The rooms where world class with world class amenities. Service was really personal, we left knowing everybody buy name. Looking forward to come back. cheers.

We had our Brazilian/American wedding at Villa Rasa and it went above and beyond our expectations!!! The preliminary costemer service was very personable and helpful. We were able to plan everything while living in the US and not even traveling there! We did the pizza party the night before, accommodated more than 80 people! The food was excellent, and the chef was very helpful in accommodating to dietary needs! Saturday , everything was extremely smooth!! The venue is absolutely breathtaking! The backdrop for the ceremony looked like a painting ! The size was perfect to fit our American/Brazilian guests to be able to stay altogether ! The staff and Villa Rasa was fantastic and made all of our wedding guest (about 180) feel very well tended to! Sunday after the wedding we did the Feijoada (beans and meat) for our close family and friends! It was delicious and a perfect wrap up to our wonderful wedding !!!

Although in minor need of some freshening of the decor, the ambiance of this lovely little pousada, it's ideal position on the edge of town and right in the middle of Praia Rasa, renders this simply a detail. What made this an ideal spot for a family get together was the very relaxed atmosphere created by Carole and her warm and muito simpático staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them and always friendly and smiling.

A great place to chill out. Recommended.

We had our wedding at Villa Rasa Marina but I will split my review so it's relevant to people just coming to stay at the hotel.

Beautiful quiet location right on Rasa beach which has much less traffic that other beaches in Buzios. A wide range of rooms from smaller more economical rooms that are located across the road which is not on the beach but has its own pool and relaxation area and so is still a nice spot, to huge rooms with sea views and jacuzzi baths and or balcony / terrace. The rooms are all nice and we were very comfortable for our three nights. The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from central Buzios (Rua das Pedras) and there isn't much restaurant / shop wise within walking distance of the hotel but this makes it a very peaceful spot and taxis can be booked fairly easily. The on site restaurant is very good and has a wide range of food including fish, Brazilian dishes and more casual options like pizza and sandwiches. The breakfast is very good with a wide and interesting offering. The hotel is generally in good condition although some of the rooms are fine and comfortable but need a bit of maintenance / decoration. The only other thing to be aware of is the reservation / checkout process is extremely slow (we weren't able to use the online system as we booked the whole hotel for our wedding) and so allow plenty of time as the hotel's systems are not at the level that they should be for a very nice hotel although admittedly we were a big group.

The hotel, restaurant and grass area on the beach front makes an amazing venue for a wedding. The hotel is well setup for weddings from having numerous bars, seating / marquee flexibility and numerous facilities that made it a very special place to have a wedding. Lilian is the events manager and she is very diligent in assisting although as noted above the reservations process can be a challenge.
The hotel caters the wedding and although I didn't want to have a buffet we decided to go with canapes and a buffet and the food was excellent and some of the best wedding food I have had.
Once you arrive at the hotel the staff in the restaurant and around the hotel are great and most speak a good level of English. A special mention must go to Eduardo and Jo who really did everything they could to make our wedding and the days around the wedding really special, I will always be thankful to them for being such great hosts and friends to us. A great location for a beach front wedding in Buzios.
