Villa d’Este, Búzios, Brazil
A small boutique hotel with 14 rooms only a short distance from the bars and restaurants of Buzios. The rooms are grouped either around beautifully landscaped gardens, or overlooking the ocean and the beach which can be found down some steps and directly in front of the hotel although it has to be said that the best beaches in the area are a short water-taxi ride away.
The hotel is equipped with two small swimming pools, one with warm water that looks right out across the ocean. It also has some lovely massage rooms that you pass on entering the hotel before you get to the colourful lobby area. Villa d'Este also has an in-house restaurant which can be a bit lacking in atmosphere during the week as guests tend to walk into town for dinner but it does serve great food.
