Undeniably one of the most iconic spots in Brazil, climbing Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio De Janiero is a must. You can hike to the top, but our favourite transportation method is via cable car. In your glass bubble you’ll make the ascent from Praia Vermelha to Morro da Urca and then on to Sugar Loaf Mountain at 396metres high, looking out over breathtaking panoramic views. As Rio gets smaller and smaller in the distance, your guide will walk you through just how Rio came to be Brazil’s first capital.

It doesn’t take much to sell the beaches of Brazil, which include the likes of Ipanema in the cosmopolitan city of Rio de Janeiro and miles of white sand found south of the capital in Florianopolis. Whether you show up and show off in the city or retreat to calmer waters, a few things stay the same – the beaches are five-star, the seafood is fresh from the Atlantic, and the hotels are second to none.

Top Locations in Brazil

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Brazil, we’d go for these.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro

The beating heart of Brazil. 

A stylish and flirtatious city, where verdant green hills tower over some of South America’s most famous beaches, and the social scene buzzes with energy and personality. Luxury in Rio takes the shape of seductive beach clubs, private dance classes, and penthouse suites – all of which add to the city’s attraction and allure. We’ll take you up Sugarloaf Mountain in a glass bubble and through the labyrinth of street food markets to source the perfect pastel. So much more than Christ the Redeemer, allow us to show you Rio De Janeiro the Black Tomato way. 

Amazon in Brazil

Amazon Rainforest

A fairytale land of pink dolphins and ritual dances.

Wild and spectacular, Brazil is home to over 60% of the famed Amazon Rainforest. This diverse ecosystem is home to a countless amount of exotic flora and fauna but only a handful of luxury lodges, meaning a trip to the Amazon will be shrouded in exclusivity and mystique. With our best expert guides in tow, embark on jungle hikes, meet with riverside tribes, and learn from the locals what it takes to survive in this remarkable environment. 

UXUA Casa Hotel in Brazil


Brazil’s best hidden beach retreat. 

Shut off from the real world and sat on the southern Bahian coast between Rio and Salvador, it’ll soon become clear as to why celebrities flock to Trancoso for some peace and quiet. And tucked away in this beautiful beach town is one of our favourite hotels in Brazil: UXUA Casa Hotel. Designed by Dutch fashion designer Wilbert Das; it’s a place to unwind in style, enjoy yoga on the golden shores and cool off in concealed plunge pools. The perfect end to a Brazilian adventure.
