A Brazil Travel Package isn’t everyone’s first thought when planning a romantic getaway. The name of Buzios in Brazil may not be a familiar one to you, and yet it is a well known destination for the rich and famous about three hours north of Rio by car on the tip of a long peninsula. Once a sleepy village it lies alongside some of the most beautiful dune lined beaches, in fact there are twenty five of them in all, and each one picture postcard beautiful. Buzios was made famous in the sixties when Brigette Bardot named it as her favourite beach retreat.
Buzios also is the home of the delightful luxury boutique hotel called the Casas Brancas, which is a real romantic hideaway getaway.
The Casas Brancas, which was built in the 1970’s, is real old school charm is terraced into a hillside overlooking the bay of Buzios and has only 32 individually decorated rooms and Suites.
All the rooms are air conditioned, have cable television, bar and safe, with free WI-Fi in the central areas of the hotel are nine standard rooms overlooking the garden, 14 superior rooms with a view of the ocean, some of which have a small private verandah. There are 6 seafront Deluxe rooms, more spacious than the Superior, and some have a little private verandah.
There are 3 oceanfront Suites with large private balconies, considerably more room than the Deluxe rooms. You can also walk straight out onto the beach. The suites would impress on a romantic getaway package!! If you can get Suite 21, then it has a jacuzzi.
The Casas Brancas prides itself on giving its guests the services of a hotel and the comfort of home, and the quite superb staff certainly come close to achieving this objective. They are both attentive yet unobtrusive, efficient and extremely discrete.
The Casas Brancas has a Greek Meditteranean feel and look to it, and overlooking the bay, and being a few steps away from both the beach and the town. You will see some of the most romantic sunsets you could ever imagine.
Meals are taken overlooking the Bay of Buzios, and the restaurant serves a Brazilian Meditteranean fusion.
You can sit in the restaurant under a terracotta canopy, and the view, the service, and the sheer quality of the food will ensure you don’t rush. Imagine steak cooked so that it literally melts in your mouth, and fish so beautifully cooked you crave for more.
The restaurant has a very good reputation in Buzios, but you must go out into Buzios and enjoy local food. The hotel is only a five minute walk from the Rua das Pedras the famous main street where you will find restaurants, shop,s bars, and live music, and the fishing boats lined up on the shore.
Buzios is famous for its beaches so you might do well to hire a car, although many of the famous beaches are within walking distance
There are few more romantic spots in Brazil than Buzios, and no better spot for a romantic getaway than the luxury boutique hotel that is the Casas Brancas.
