Hotel Overview


Búzios is undeniably one of Brazil’s hottest destinations, located three hours north of Rio de Janeiro on a stunning peninsula.

Rooms at Vila d’Este

Effortlessly sleek, the fifteen luxury rooms and suites have been individually decorated with natural tones, rustic furnishings and plenty of artistic touches. Upgrade to a Superior Ocean Front room for million dollar views from a private balcony, or enjoy incredible sunsets from a private outdoor Jacuzzi in the Master Suite – this romantic loft-style suite is a must for honeymooners.

Food and Facilities

Enjoy lunch by the pool and sip cocktails as the sun sets, before heading to Egeo restaurant to dine on delicious Mediterranean and Brazilian cuisine by candlelight; the romantic setting under the stars offers spectacular sweeping views. Head to the relaxation area for a soothing massage, steam room or sauna – or unwind in a second heated pool overlooking the bay.

Activities at Vila d’Este

As night falls, a hip crowd takes to the Orla Bardot promenade, with the nearby restaurants and bars of the Rua das Pedras forming the hub of Búzios’ vibrant nightlife. Rub elbows with the rich and famous as you wander the enchanting cobblestone streets, and dine alfresco overlooking the twinkling lights of anchored fishing boats. Búzios is blessed with stunning beaches – over twenty line the peninsula’s coast – which offer everything from snorkelling to surfing.
