La Suite

Rua Jackson de Figueiredo 501, Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, 22611–000, Brazil

This off-the-beaten-track location amid the secluded mansions of Joatinga—often referred to as "the Beverly Hills of Rio"—gives La Suite an ultra-exclusive feel, and the French owners have imbued their boutique hotel with real Parisian chic. The infinity pool, perched right above the ocean, takes in sweeping vistas over mountains and out to sea, and the exterior and outdoor spaces are all clean lines, white walls, and sleek modernism. The suites themselves—themed by color—are an exercise in indulgence, with twinkling chandeliers, Oriental screens, vast beds, walk-in wardrobes, colored-marble double shower rooms, and iPod docks.
