While the name may conjure up images of the pesky, blood-sucking insects, the Casa Mosquito quickly dispels all such images upon arrival. The hotel represents a grand haven where you don’t have to worry about being bothered as you relax within the old colonial mansion, reimagined as a modern boutique hotel with its European vintage design, courtesy of its two French owners. The hotel’s identity is also formed around Brazilian culture, with rooms named after legendary local figures. A peek from the hotel’s windows offers incredible views over two of the most recognisable beaches in South America: Ipanema and Copacabana.

Nestled away within the Atlantic forest hills of the affluent Gavea neighbourhood, the Gavea Tropical Boutique Hotel offers luxurious guestrooms, with décor in a blend of Thai and tropical styles. The hotel offers private balconies where guests can be amazed by the stunning views and entertained by the friendly local ‘mico’ monkeys. A short journey out of the hills finds the Baixo Gavea area, often considered Rio’s bohemian quarter because of its abundance of artists and intellectuals.
