BRAZIL­IAN BOOST FOR ACCOR

Travel Bulletin - - SOUTH AMERICA -

ACCORHOTELS’ upmarket Mgallery by Sof­i­tel col­lec­tion of prop­er­ties has ex­panded into Brazil, with the open­ing of the new Ho­tel Santa Teresa Rio de Janeiro ( pic­tured). This year’s Olympics are ex­pected to boost de­mand for the des­ti­na­tion, with the ad­di­tion lo­cated in the trendy, bo­hemian Santa Teresa dis­trict near such iconic at­trac­tions as the Christ The Redeemer statue, Su­gar­loaf Moun­tain, Copaca­bana beach and the Ipanema Coast. Each of the 43 rooms boasts a “su­per­size” king bed, and the Ho­tel Santa Teresa also of­fers a spa, swim­ming pool and Jacuzzi along with the iconic Tereze restau­rant where Ar­gen­tine chef Pablo Fer­reyra of­fers an ar­ray of lo­cal cui­sine which can be en­joyed with a stun­ning panoramic back­drop of the Gua­n­abara Bay. It’s the sec­ond Mgallery prop­erty in South Amer­ica, join­ing the Brick Ho­tel Buenos Aires which joined the col­lec­tion in 2013.
