Why JOMO.art?

Our name was born from the feeling we experienced after entering through the gates of the Villa. We felt JOMO and wanted our guests to have this wonderful experience in Rio as well.

Santa Teresa is an art district and we love art. Bringing Immersive art into the guests rooms just made sense to us. A place to truly relax and rebalance with lots of creativity and no pressure.

Take the time for self care or time reconnecting with family or friends. From the moment you enter, you will feel JOMO too.

How safe is neighborhood?

Santa teresa is the safest neighborhood in Rio. Santa is safe to walk around at night. Streets well light and paid guards walk up and down.

What is your cancellation policy?

No refund or changes 3 days before booking for regular stays.

For Carnival, New Years or 3 or more rooms booked no refunds for cancellations or changes.

How are we helping mother Earth?

We have implemented sustainable measures.

1) No one time use plastic. This means, we do not stock frigo bars with bottled water. We do however, have a large water 20L water jug in dining area for as many refills as needed. We want everyone to stay hydrated.

2) We ask guests to turn off AC, fans and lights when leaving the rooms. Let's reduce consumption to what we need.

How to Prepare for Trip?

1) Please purchase an e-sim that works in Brazil prior to trip. This will allow for connectivity throughout your trip.

It is not possible to purchase esims at the airports. These are available but just for residents. DO NOT get scammed. !!! If we visited prior to 2019 or so, this was available for tourists as well. Times have changed.

2) Women please do not bring real gold, diamond jewelry. It's much less stressful to be on vacay and not have to constantly monitor this.

Do bring a small bags as large bags scream "Tourists."

Please bring flats.. Heels may cause an accident for the cobblestone roads and uneven pavements.

3) Bug stray and sun block even for cloudy days. If possible purchase here once you land so you have products that will work effectively.

4) Weather can be unpredictable. For activities based on weather, have flexibility and preferably plan after arrival.
