The peninsula of Buzios, just two hours east of Rio de Janeiro, is one of the most beautiful spots in the world for travelers to go on their Brazil vacations. Buzios, a quaint fishing village, went virtually unnoticed until the early 1960’s, when the famous French actress, Brigitte Bardot “discovered” it as an ideal place to hideout from all the attention that resulted from her success. Since then, Buzios has slowly evolved into an internationally famous vacation destination for those on honeymoon or travelers seeking a place to enjoy the ultimate romantic getaway.
When planning your vacation in Buzios, it is important to note that, while the area is saturated with accommodations ranging from small inns and pousadas to large hotels, it is the small luxury boutique hotels that offer their guests the ultimate in comfort and style. From the sophistication found at the Insolito Boutique Hotel, to the refined elegance of the Casas Brancas Boutique Hotel and Spa, and the sublime natural beauty of Vila d’Este at Morro do Humaita, these small boutique hotels offer the best in world class amenities, gourmet dining, and beautifully appointed rooms which overlook the beautiful blue and turquoise waters that surround Buzios.
Because of their size, each hotel is able to extend to their guests individualized treatment they won’t find anywhere else. The smallest details, such as fresh flowers placed throughout the hotel, as well as complimentary snacks and beverages offered at various times during the day, make staying at small luxury boutique hotels preferable over a stay at one of the larger hotel chains. You will immediately notice the friendly and helpful attitude of the staff members who are eager to attend to your every need, exposing you to the Brazilian hospitality that is famous the world over.
No matter how you spend your vacation time, whether it’s shopping in the city’s Centro district, lounging beside the pool, soaking up the sun on one of Buzio’s beautiful beaches, or enjoying a massage or beauty treatment at the hotel spa, the memories you create during your stay will stay with you forever. Brazil vacations in Buzios is definitely an awesome choice all year around.
