Although history is the main pillar of this comfortable hotel in Manaus city center, it is definitely not the only one. The restoration that transformed this historic mansion, back from the “rubber boom” era in the late 18th century, came along an innovative vision. The concept behind the complete restoration kept the imposing aura, which makes Vila Amazonia a reference in the capital on Amazonas state, even shortly after its opening. From the kitchen of FITZ-carraldo Restaurant comes a fusion of complex flavors that blend classic recipes with Amazonian ingredients. In an intelligent and delicate way, Vila Amazonia has genuinely reached a new level of quality of accommodation in Manaus that ensures sophistication and comfort to all types of guest.

The capital of the State of Amazonas is the largest city in the Northern Region of Brazil, with 2 million inhabitants. The Rubber Cycle, at the end of the 19th century, left as legacy impressive Art Nouveau buildings throughout the historical center, such as the Teatro Amazonas and the Palacete Provincial. The city also solidified industrially in the late 1960s, with the creation of the Manaus Free Zone, which attracted investments and jobs to the region. Imbedded in the midst of the Amazon Rainforest, the city is a traditional starting point for discovering the planet’s largest ecosystem, whatever starting from the contemplation of the Meeting of Waters, where the Rio Negro crosses with River Solimões, visiting the neighboring indigenous tribes or discovering the river beaches. Since its foundation in 1669, to this day, Manaus has its own rhythm, which is reflected in the pulsing Adolfo Lisboa Municipal Market, in its traditional cuisine or in every look of the welcoming Manauara people.
Being the gateway to the Amazon, Manaus performs the dual role of a great metropolis in the Northeast of Brazil whilst being the starting point to discover the immense forest through its great rivers. However, much more than being the point of access to the impressive “meeting of the waters” of the Black and Solimões Rivers, Manaus is also an attraction in itself. The flourishing Rubber Cycle, at the end of the 18th century, boosted the city’s economy and the construction of emblematic buildings such as the Amazonas Theatre. An architectural masterpiece, the Theater is much more than a house for shows, and works almost like a living museum that narrates the glorious manauara (those or that from Manaus) past. Surrounding this big concert house, there are numerous properties listed as historical heritage. Other classic routes through the city include the Municipal Market Adolpho Lisboa, Science Forest and the CICGS Zoo. With a little more time, you can schedule day trips to the Amazonian and Seringal Museums. In Presidente Figueiredo, a series of waterfalls awaits the explorer travelers.
Only about 70 meters away from Manaus main postcard, the Amazonas Theatre, the hotel is located on 10 de Julho Street, right in front of the former Santa Casa (the city hospital), in the historic city center. From the airport, it’s only a 25min drive to the hotel.
