“Where Rio meets the Sea”
Arpoador celebrates Rio de Janeiro, its culture, its people and its cosmopolitan maritime atmosphere. A rich history that is directly linked to its connection with the sea. The sea – its waves, color palette, sounds and inspiring behavior – are pillars of our culture of hospitality.
The environment is the responsibility of each one of us.
“Here, our day-to-day actions are conscious and that is why our practices and culture seek sustainability in the entire universe of the hotel. We believe in the power of transformation and the need to support serious initiatives that do relevant work for the benefit of Brazilian biodiversity. The Arpoador is the beach hotel closest to the sand. It is our responsibility to preserve and enhance the title of “Wonderful City”, recognized for the beautiful union of the city with the natural beauty of our beaches and the Atlantic Forest “.
Daniel Gorin, general manager

Who we support
BrBio – Brazilian Biodiversity Institute is a non-profit association, founded in 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, which promotes the protection and conservation of biodiversity and, consequently, a better quality of life for all.
Hotel Arpoador supports this institution and invites guests to engage in this cause, with the “environmental checkout”, through an optional contribution of R$ 5 (five reais) for environmental awareness and social mobilization actions. All funds raised in this initiative are made available every six months in the action report.
