We are obsessed with seeing the world, experiencing new things and learning about new cultures - this is why we decided to create the Discovery brand. It only made sense to create our own hostel, bed & breakfast and bar to share our experiences with others. Inspired by every place we have journeyed, we give you: Discovery Suites Rio and Explorer Bar.
For Discovery Suites Rio, we have taken all the things we learned as travel-lovers and added even more benefits for those looking for the privacy of their own boutique ensuite with the vibrant atmosphere vacationers are looking for. Filled with the charm and old world of Santa Teresa, our rooms are furnished with antique finds, treasures from around the world, plush mattresses and all the amenities you need – in addition to our world-renowned customer service. We are located in the center of Santa's lively main street so you can easily access not only our neighborhood but all of Rio de Janeiro. Also enjoy our adjoining bar and restaurant, Explorer Bar! Our bar brings extra life to the place providing a great social atmosphere, international cuisine and original cocktails to brighten up your get-away. The bar plays ambient music and sometimes live acts filling the air with Brazilian charm and authenticity. Discovery Suites is the perfect place for travelers looking to experience the genuine beauty and culture Rio de Janeiro has to offer!
Once the richest neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, now Santa Teresa is much appreciated for its charm, history and authenticity. Our home is located above the most famous road Rua Almirante Alexandrino (street), popular for its quaint artisan shops and local restaurants. Nestled in the trees, in the heart of it all, lies your home away from home. Our plush gardens and patio space create a lively oasis where you can watch all the vibrant happenings of Santa Teresa below. See the famous Bonde (trolly car) pass by, observe locals enjoying the atmosphere and foreigners from all over the world flocking to discover the secrets of this bohemian neighborhood. Take a walk to many famous attractions, dine in our very own Cocktail bar or take a tour to discover some history and art. Also, you can easily access all of Rio de Janeiro via Uber, Taxi or public transportation or walking!
