Ritz Leblon

Hotel in Ipanema & Leblon

In one of Rio's most desirable areas, this stylish low-key hotel has attractive, uniquely designed rooms and common areas that give it a boutique feel. The best rooms have kitchen units and balconies – some offering partial ocean views – and all have artwork, good lighting and spotless bedrooms.

Amenities include an elegant (if often empty) bar, a sauna, a tiny pool and a spa.
