Hotels with a view

The wife and I are jetting off to Rio (without the kids!), so we'd like to relax in paradise.  Does anyone have any suggestions for nice places to stay that have great views?

    If you want glamor there is indeed no other place in Rio than the 8th floor pool of the Fasano Hotel . Fabulous and the view is just incredible!

    Just a few additions to Andrew's answer:

    There is a new chic little hotel in Ipanema called casa MOSQUITO 7mins. from Ipanema beach and a real Brazilian experience. Run by a French couple.

    A bit away (25 minutes) from the beach but in a wonderful area of Rio on a hill overlooking the city called Santa Teresa is Hotel Santa Teresa A Relais Chateau Hotel in Colonial Style with a wonderful view and charming garden and pool. A fantastic place in Rioif you dont mind not being at the beach. Santa Teresa used to be THE place in Rio for the wealthy families to live and i am sure it will come back to former glory.

      We do want to stay closer to the water, but Santa Teresa sounds like it's worth a visit even if we don't end up staying there. Thank you for the heads up on all this! · (1 likelikes)

    If you're looking for a glamorous vacation, look no further than Hotel Fasano. Take a dip in the rooftop pool and make sure to check out the restaurants.

    The Copacabana Palace Hotel has incredible hotel with ocean views. The art deco building is a sight to be seen. The rooms are elegant and clean.

    Another hotel with great view is Golden Tulip Ipanema Plaza Hotel. The rooms in this hotel are confortable and clean. Go for an ocean view room for spectacular sights.

    By the way, if you want a restaurant with a view, check out Espirito Santa. Eating at Espirto Santa gives you a culinary tour of Brazil. From the drinks made with Brazilian fruits to the Amazonian fish. The restaurant also has a deck with a great view. Also check out Aprazível. Grab a seat on the porch for amazing views of Guanabara Bay. The menu boasts a fusion of Brazilian and French cuisine.
