Mama Ruisa Owners Club House
The exclusive Owner's Club accommodation

With our extensive experience in Rio throughout the years and at last year's FIFA World Cup, we knew this elegant, century-old boutique property would be the ideal location to provide the Owners Club with an exclusive upscale home away from home! Not only will you feel right at home at this exotic Brazilian boutique, you will also have the chance to mix, mingle, and celebrate with your fellow Owners Club members. From the soaring ceilings and generously sized guest rooms, to it’s palm tree encircled pool, this exclusive Owners Club property is the perfect retreat after a day of thrilling competition and the excitement of Rio during the 2016 Summer Games .The grand, impossibly sleek living room – open to the ocean breeze by way of ceiling-high French doors — is almost as good-looking as the mansion’s lush swimming pool. Thanks to the hotel’s hilltop position, guests can delight in the million dollar view with sweeping vistas over the Guanabara bay. As the masses crowd the beaches below, you will be feeling positively regal from this hilltop sanctuary!

Equine Canada will also be holding exclusive, invitation only cocktail and canapés events poolside at this wonderful property for the broader Canadian Equine community – a chance to build relationships and be a valued part of this great equestrian team.
