Let’s welcome back monthly contributor Tina Ramchandani of Life in Sketch, here to whisk us away to her September design hotel destination!!  Look for Tina’s Interior Design Hotels column here on the fourth Wednesdays of the month.

Hello! It’s Tina from Life in Sketch, back with this month’s Design Hotel. I thought visiting Brazil this month would be the perfect mini-getaway. I stumbled upon a stunning hotel in Rio de Janeiro and had to share it with you. La Suite by Dussol is less like a hotel and more like boutique apartments, near one of Rio’s most exclusive residential districts.

Close to the hotel is also one of Rio’s premier beaches, Joatinga Beach.

The house was once the residence of Portugese bankers and is someone secluded, a 30 minute drive from Rio.

La Suite by Dussol is comprised of 7 rooms, each individually designed.

Each room has a private patio to enjoy the spectacular view and is designed around a certain color scheme.

The hotel has not one but two pools, one of which is an infinity pool.

There is an intercom located at the infinity pool, so guests can order whatever they like directly from the kitchen.

Guests can dine on the panoramic terrace or in the modernist dining room. Meals are prepared by a top chef Pascal Joly. The cuisine is Brazilian mixed with international food.
