Perfectly located in Ipanema
The staff go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. Unbeatable view 😍 Enjoyable Air-conditioning and comfortable bed. Weekends are chaos outside at Ipanema beach but can enjoy quieter isolation meters away on rooftop pool and capture the perfect sunset from this location too.
