Octávio Raja Gabaglia is the renowned Brazilian architect who Emmanuelle de Clermont Tonnerre called to transform her beach house in Búzios into the INSÓLITO BOUTIQUE HOTEL, an exclusive solution included in the Design Hotels™ selection.
Búzios is located on the coast to the north of Rio de Janeiro (176 km away) and is one of the most sought after by tourists from both Brazil and abroad seeking elite tourism. This corner of Brazil has retained much of its original charm and its heart is still the tiny fishing village which Brigitte Bardot fell in love with in 1960, considering it her favourite holiday destination.
The Insólito Boutique Hotel is a modern style hotel that still feels at one with nature. Social responsibility and the commitment to work with sustainable businesses is of utmost importance for the owner. Consequently, all the hotel's furniture is made by Brazilian companies who only use untreated, recycled or in any case certified wood. A silent protest against deforestation.
