Búzios, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 2020 About Us

Prices: The Brazilian currency is Reais (R$) and as per current exchange rate, divide Reais by 4 to get the approximate U.S. dollar equivalent.

The prices negotiated are R$610.30 (approximately US$153 under current exchange rates) for a double room per night for two adults with up to two children under 13 for free, including three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and supper) and non-alcoholic drinks or juices provided by the restaurant during the meals. The negotiated hotel rates are for nine nights with a check-in on Friday afternoon Oct. 2 and check-out on Sunday morning Oct. 11. Payment in full is due either at the time of reservation, via credit card or in two credit card installments (50% at the time of reservation and the balance one month before).

As the Church had to financially commit in advance to a certain number of rooms, availability is on a first come first serve basis. Should our room allotment need to be increased, we can increase it, subject to availability.

Other room options, like single room (R$549.10), suite superior (R$666.40) and suites master or bungalows (R$776.90) are also available but are subject to availability.

Dietary restrictions & health: The hotel caters for gluten-free and lactose concerns. A dietitian is available for additional personal dietary restrictions. The festival coordinator will also need to submit to the hotel a summary room list of all attendees 25 days before the Feast, with name, passport number and date of birth for hotel check-in purposes. Dietary restrictions or any other special needs will also need to be supplied to the festival coordinator to be included in the check-in room list. Visitors to Brazil with a U.S. Passport and traveling directly from the States currently do not require any vaccinations or a visa.

Electricity: Electricity at this Buzios Beach Resort is 220V. Typically cellphone and PC chargers are dual voltage. Brazil/US adaptors are available at Amazon or electrical stores for about US$10. The rooms have a hairdryer, refrigerator and an ironing board.
