Casas Brancas is the oldest luxury hotel in Búzios, yet looks as new as ever thanks to a recent overhaul. It has earned accolades in, among others, The New York Times and the Condé Nást Traveler and is pretty much the best place to stay in town.
The hotel is perched over Armação Bay and it is only a 5-minute stroll from the main pedestrian thoroughfare: great, since you can walk to dinner and to the myriad little shops.
Casas Brancas has 32 apartments, which either face the ocean or the gardens. The deluxe rooms
have ocean views and verandahs, as do the suites, which are the largest room category.
Locals like to stop in for massages at the spa, one of the best-equipped in town.
