Nestled into the backdrop of Ferradura beach and cliff top, in the Peninsula of Buzios – Insólito Boutique Hotel is an oasis of calm, offering relaxation on a horseshoe-shaped bay of crystal-clear turquoise water. Elegantly, it sets apart private and public beach with discreet luxury and attention to detail. Ennobled by a sustainable approach and a sophisticated beach proposal, the hotel features 20 rooms – it includes two superior rooms, four luxury rooms and three master suites – all-thematic, immersing guests in Brazilian culture.
BOLD TOUCH As a token of the owner’s passion for Brazil – French business woman Emanuelle Meeus de Clermont-Tonnerre – all spaces are exclusively designed and decorated with a unique Brazilian flavour. The decoration and furniture serve as an exhibition of Brazilian art, know-how and culture, for instance the photographs by Almir Reis who portrays modernist architecture and the human body – thus blending artisan with more modern pieces. Elements, such as rubber mats and chairs by Cecília Machado, made in cooperation with the inmates of Muzambinho and Nova Resende are created with a social consciousness, adding to the unique sustainable approach on which the hotel prides itself. Above all, the hotel prevails as a true art gallery – selected interior and exterior decoration is also for sale.
WHAT WE LOVE Audaciously, the hotel offers guests the comfort and spirit of a private house while staying true to an integrative strategy respectful of the native flora. Along with the installation of a solar heating system for water, the hotel always gives preference to Brazilian materials and products.
BONUS FEATURE Graced by a picturesque view, the hotel provides a haven for luxury with its strategically placed freshwater and seawater pools. A variety of features, such as the spa, wellness hub and a beach lounge of 3,000 m² provide spaces for chic and private relaxation. Body and soul can also be nourished by the hotel’s very own A Galeria restaurant under chef Mikael Voltaire, enchanting guests with its view over the hotel and lagoon, and providing electrifying flavours, fusing together French and Brazilian palates.
