Weekend

Janeiro Hotel, Leblon, Rio

17. Januar 2020

Soaking up the breeze, right bang smack on the sand, arms flung wide open to the Atlantic, this is JANEIRO

Janeiro says: bem-vindo

Located in the middle of Leblon’s marvellous beach-culture, we bring Rio’s bossa vibe to life. Nature is a joyful accomplice. And what about that view? The Cagarras islands scatter across a horizon blue as far as the eye can see. No make-believe needed here. At night, the Moon beams, and in the distance, the lights of Vidigal glitter and dance like fireflies. Pure poetry for the eyes, woven into the urban effervescence of the city. The barefoot simplicity of the beach finds its way into the smallest of details; from the rooms to the food, the music to the art, all is an extension of the golden sands out front. We sway to no other rhythm but Rio’s.

THE ROOMS

Who could ever be lonely with sea-views like these? In each of our 53 apartments, the windows are an ever-changing work of art. Soft and subtle tones spark memories of the sand and Nature’s greens and blues, showcasing design pieces from Brazil’s emerging talents. Something soothes beyond what your eyes can see. Your bed? It’s ‘nossa praia”* (see below for your first lesson in Carioca slang). Share your shower with ocean-views. It’s all a question of experience. In a city like Rio where so much merges together, here simplicity and technology sleep side by side. Nothing is by chance.

JANEIRO BAR

The body tingles with the touch of salt and sun. Be it before or after the beach – never far from view – JANEIRO BAR waits to welcome the world. Stretched alongside the hotel, the bar blurs with Leblon’s beach-scene. The breeze, and the vibe it brings, are matched by the freshness of the kitchen, which celebrates all that comes from the Sea, from it’s healthy dishes to the Sushi Bar. Be it with the coldest of beers – so very Rio – or cocktails, this is the place to relax, to watch the world drift by and to soak up stunning sunsets, sun-stoned and ecstatic.

JANEIRO RESTAURANT

The Taste of Rio. Our menu is inspired by the healthy lifestyle that reigns here and the easy-going food culture that underpins this perpetually relaxed city. Dishes are an ode to local traditions with an eye on international trends. Always crafted from the freshest of ingredients, the subtle smoke of the charcoal-grill is one of our favourite spices. Set on the second floor, this is the place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our signature menu is as creative as it is modern, yet never losing the soul and flavour of home-cooking.

THE LITTLE POOL BAR AND THE TERRACE

The main materials that compose the building are the Travertine marble and its sandy texture the natural Freijó certified sustainable wood. These components were used in repetition to empower the inner space and to reinforce the horizontal a vertical plans on the construction.

The authorial wood work was exclusively designed and executed for the hotel and you can see it on pieces of furniture such as beds, bedside tables, desks, wardrobes, wall panels and many other details around the hotel. The natural straw is also a highlight present in chairs such as the restaurant chair and its unique straw seats in a shape resembling a shell.

The bottle shape lamps handcrafted in south Brazil were specially developed for the Hotel using recycled glass. The linen domes have covers of Freijó wood on the top to better filter the light and to create a cozy atmosphere.
The big highlight goes to the helical staircase on the Varanda at the top floor, with loose floating steps and helix shape it is a reference from modernist Brazilian architecture.
