Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel
Brush shoulders with Brazil's style setters
A landmark hotel, the Copacabana Palace has been an essential part of the fabric of Rio since it opened its Art Deco doors in 1923. The Copacabana Palace is superbly located, facing the world famous Copacabana Beach and yet only minutes from the city centre, Ipanema and Leblon districts of Rio de Janeiro.
Each of the rooms is unique, featuring fine period furniture and original works of art. Choose between charming city views or magnificent beach vistas. Guests can enjoy breakfast served in the Pérgula restaurant, which also offers Brazilian specialties and fresh seafood delicacies. Top Italian dishes are served in Cipriani restaurant and a selection of drinks is available at the Copacabana Piano Bar. The property has a magnificent pool and also offers an exclusive beach service with sun loungers, umbrellas and beach assistants to look after needs. Escape to the Copacabana Palace Spa, a serene urban sanctuary featuring indulgent rituals that purify, revitalize and tone.
When you are not soaking up the sun on the vast stretches of beach you may wish to explore the sights such as the iconic Christ the Redeemer by taking the cog train to the top of Corcovado Mountain, or catch a cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain to view the statue from afar. Explore the slightly bohemian neighbourhood of Santa Teresa with its mix of modern, colonial and Art Deco architecture.
Superbly positioned overlooking Copacabana Beach, this is quite simply the best place to stay in Rio.
