Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas
A classic, luxury hotel with exclusive access to the Falls
The jaw-dropping Iguassu Falls descend from the mighty Iguassu River, on the Brazil-Argentina border. Right beside the Falls, Belmond Hotel das Cataratas nestles peacefully in a protected National Park, surrounded by nature and the Atlantic rainforest.
The only hotel located within the Iguassu National Park, Belmond Hotel das Cataratas enjoys an unrivalled location just a short stroll from the sensational Falls themselves.
A Portuguese colonial residence, this classic luxury hotel is redolent with the atmosphere of lazy days lounging on a veranda or beneath sub-tropical palms. Rooms are decorated in the classic Portuguese style, with colourful accents and dark-wood furnishings.
At the heart of the hotel is the heated swimming pool. Enjoy fine dining with views of the Falls at Itaipu restaurant or start your evening with a cooling Caipirinha at Bar Taroba and watch the sunset over Iguassu National Park from the veranda.
Go rafting beneath the awe-inspiring Iguassu Waterfalls. Set amid rain forest in southern Brazil, these majestic falls are one of the great wonders of the Americas, with 275 individual falls encompassing a vast area. The highest fall, the Garganta do Diabo (Devil's Throat) reaches 70m, which is one and a half times the height of Niagara Falls. Take a helicopter flight to gain a bird’s eye view of the falls or wander through the avian park, just near the park entrance and admire some 160 different bird species in their natural habitat.
Enjoy exclusive access to this magnificent sight in the evening and at dawn, when the park is closed to other visitors.
