Just a two-hour drive from the bright lights of Rio de Janeiro, there is an oasis of calm awaiting guests at the Insólito Boutique Hotel. Nestled in a rocky hillside, with stunning views of Ferradura Beach, the solar-heated Insólito blends perfectly into its natural surroundings thanks to the skills of celebrated architect Otavio Raja Gabaglia. The hotel’s twenty rooms are full of arts and crafts from famous and local artisans, and socially responsible companies. Most rooms have a veranda with a whirlpool and panoramic ocean views, while the suites also come with a lounge. The hotel’s two speedboats can access over 23 neighboring beaches on the peninsula. And when guests want to mingle, they can enjoy drinks in the pool bar, or lunch at the 3,000-square-meter beach lounge, which has become “the place to be” for locals and guests alike.

French-born Emmanuelle de Clermont Tonnerre followed her dreams – and her husband, Belgian entrepreneur Philippe Meeus – straight to Brazil in 2004. The stunning setting of their beachfront home in Búzios inspired this former lawyer to convert it into Insólito Boutique Hotel. Tonnerre's exquisite design sense has been recognized by the renowned guide Condé Nast Johansens, which voted Insólito one of the best luxury hotels in Latin America. Her passion for Brazilian culture is evident in Insólito's exotic mixture of antique and modern furniture, artifacts and eclectic design elements. Whether referencing music, literature, art or nature, a true Renaissance woman lies behind every pleasure at Insólito.
