The Insolito Boutique Hotel is located on the Ferradura beach, one of the most beautiful beaches of Búzios, and offers a beautiful natural setting and a real immersion in the artistic culture of Brazil. With only 20 rooms, all individually decorated and true works of art, this boutique hotel is a rare and authentic address that has sprawn from a hugely succesful design project. The rooms` decoration and themes each promote a local artist and exhibit unique design features linked to music, photography, literature, art, nature, history, architecture, fashion and african-culture. A premium service, excellent French-Brazilian cuisine, a charming decor, and luxury makes the insolito an outstanding hotel for a fashionable sea-side experience and stay.
The Insolito Boutique Hotel is housed in a building designed by the famous Brazilian architect Otavio Raja Gabaglia -- the father of the Buzios "jet-set" allure. Of Mediterranean inspiration, the hotel is perched above the sea and offers fantastic sea views.
The 20 white rooms, decorated by Emmanuelle Meeus de Clermont-Tonnerre, are real colorful works of art! The rooms each have beautiful sea-views and feature Trussardi bathrobes and sheets, luxury Sealy mattresses and Karsten Zero Twist towels.
Choose amongst 4 room categories, each with different room sizes and some with or without terrace. Themes set the room appart but all categories are hyper comfortable and boast luxurious amenities.
Some of our favorite picks are:
Casa Cultura Negra that portrays the black Afro culture in Brazil;
Outeiro da Gloria that has an azulejos signboard creation of Laura Taves which symbolizes the presence of the azulejos technique in Brazilian religious art;
Moda that reveals sketches of Brazilian designers, catalogs of the cariocas brands, and dress-shaped lamps crafted from tin cans;
the Orfeu da Conceição Suite that relates the works of french writer and film director Marcel Camus who shot Orfeu Negro in Rio for which he subsequently received the Palme d`Or at the Cannes Film Festival and an Oscar for the best foreign film.
Emmanuelle Meeus de Clermont Tonnerre was fascinated by Brazil and designed the Insolito Boutique Hotel as an art exhibit. A true curator, she assembled a unique collection that pays tribute to the Brazilian culture.
The artworks are not only displayed in the rooms but also and in the common areas such as the living room with a Pigmento Ovo table and a beautiful rustic wooden sofa signed by Elma Chavez.
The recycled rubber mats are designed by Cecilia Machado and, in the context of a social responsibility, were crafted by prisoners of Muzambinho and of Nova Rezende. We`d also mention the photos of the anthropologist Claudia Andujar, the stickers of André Diniz and of the young Brazilian designer Juliana Llussa.
