Belmond Copacabana Palace

Just as the name suggests, the 5-star luxury Belmond Copacabana sits right on the world famous Copacabana beach and boardwalk. Opened in 1923, the Art Deco-style hotel has hosted the rich and famous visiting Rio from all over the world. Belmond-Copacabana-poolThe Palace features one of the largest and most beautiful pools in the city, complete with dedicated pool assistants to fetch you a towel, drink or snack. This personal level of attention isn’t just contained to the pool, however. The hotel also provides Beach Service, making sure you have everything you need when you cross the street, from sunblock and umbrellas to water and snacks. Take advantage of other Palace amenities including the tennis court, fitness center and even two boutique shopping centers within the hotel — Villa Copa and 1923.

The Palace Spa is a true urban sanctuary, featuring a wide array of services using organic ingredients. There is also a salon, sauna and steam bath in addition to a nutritious spa menu for healthy snacks. Copacabana Palace knows that 5-star luxury accommodations require 5-star dining options, of which there is no shortage.

The Belmond Copacabana das Cataratas Cipriani Restaurant (named after the famous Venice, Italy hotel) is considered one of the best restaurants in all of Rio, dishing up top quality Northern Italian cuisine. Here you will also find the Chef’s Table, located in the middle of the Cipriani, where exclusive dishes are paired with hand-selected wines. Foodies be prepared though, as 48-hour notice is required to have a chance of enjoying this experience. MEE offers the top pan-Asian cuisine in the city, complete with sake cocktails.

The Copacabana Piano Bar, open Wednesday through Saturday, is a place for Rio’s A-list personalities to meet for specialty drinks and jazzy beats. Lastly, the Pergula Restaurant, which overlooks the famous swimming pool, fuses Brazilian and international cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. This is the place to catch Sunday Brunch as well as Saturday Feijoada (a traditional dish of rice, beans and meat).

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

The Belmond das Cataratas only hotel located inside the Parque Nacional do Iguaçu (Iguazu National Park), das Cataratas allows for the quickest and easiest access to the world famous Falls. This placement is also a great advantage over other hotels in the area, as guests are afforded exclusive access when the park is closed. For instance, Belmond guests are able to explore the park at dawn and again after dark, while outside visitors must settle for the great pictures they took. Das-Cataratas-Bed

The hotel was designed in a Portuguese colonial style of architecture, making for a relaxed (some might even say lazy) atmosphere. However, the hotel also offers a wide variety of activities for those who need a little action and adventure in addition to some rest and relaxation. Guests can choose from activities like rafting, repelling, rock climbing, speed boat and helicopter rides, canopy walks and jungle treks.

There is a lot of wildlife to be seen as well including colorful toucans and giant butterflies. Great food is a major part of the Belmond experience.The Belmond Cataratas, also is famoud the Ipe Grill for breakfast and for gaucho-style barbecues after dark. Itaipu Restaurant blends Brazilian and international cuisine into exciting fusion dishes. This fine dining experience is perfect for foodies who love waterfalls too! Dine inside in a cozy, private setting, or out on the veranda in the glorious natural surroundings. Bar Taroba is a sociable place to start your evening with a caipirinha or other festive cocktail. Take a seat on the veranda with friends new and old to take in the magnificent sunset over the park.
