Outstanding service in a colonial setting

Wake up to the roaring waterfalls and the stunning South America rainforest, the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel within Brazil’s Iguazu National Park allowing you to stay as close as possible to one of the new seven natural wonders of the world, Iguazu Falls.

Part of the prestigious Belmond group synonymous with luxury, this iconic residence set in one of the most picturesque locations in the world offers a world class spa providing a range of therapies designed to comfort, energize and refresh with ingredients sourced directly from the rainforest. Dine in style at the two restaurants, relax at the laid back Ipe Grill and fine-dine at Itaipu with views of the falls from its’ open air terrace. In the evenings sip on cocktails around the pool.

The hotel is not just for relaxing, explore the area by going on jeep drives through the rainforest followed by a speedboat ride to Devil’s Pool, white water raft, follow trails to discover wildlife and fly in a helicopter – The most spectacular way to see the falls! On a full moon experience the magical experience of a lunar rainbow.

Continue your Brazilian adventure by exploring Rio and stay at the Belmond Copacabana Palace overlooking the iconic Copacabana beach.

A Stellar Hotel!

London, United Kingdom

We booked the Belmond on recommendation from friends and were very glad we did. The entrance to the Hotel is through the Park gates and it sets the pace for what to expect at the front desk when you finally arrive. Very friendly AND COURTEOUS staff at check in. We had a garden view room but on request were offered a room with partial view of the Falls. Although the room was a tad small it was lovely to look out and see the falls ahead. As we only had one night we chose to dine in the hotel and enjoyed a well laid out buffet dinner Ipe restaurant. The noise of the falls did not disturb in any way. The bed was comfortable . Enjoyed the luxurious bath products. we were also presented a vial of the waters from the Iguazu Falls! the icing on the cake however was the opportunity to visit the Falls before the public timings for viewing. It was marvelous to walk down to the viewing platforms and take photos without being jostled around ( as we were when we viewed from the Argentinean side). Simply loved the place.

I looked forward to arriving at this hotel with great anticipation. Everyone who helped organise our trip around South America raved about this hotel. Wow they were right to do so,it was truely spectacular. The Belmond is the only hotel on the national park. Before 9am and after 5pm the water falls were your hotels garden. Between 9-5 the falls are packed with coach loads of tourists and you’d struggle to get a selfie in front of the falls without someone’s shoulder photo bombing you! First thing we noticed when walking to the reception was how nice the hotel smelt... bizarre but it was really a smell we laped up. Everyone also has access to the bell tower. There you can watch the sun rise and set over the water falls. We arrived to our room, the porter pointed out a complimentary pair of Haviannas. A flip flop you would usually spend around £30 on in the uk. A mini bar filled to the top and also all complimentary. Next to our welcome leaflet was a miniature bottle of water with a gift tag explaining it was the water from the falls and was a souvenir for home..... nice touch! Our first evening we ate in the bbq restaurant. Probably one of the nicest buffets I’ve been to. Plenty of salad choices and all sorts of meat. The hotel organised our excursions for us and would 100% reccomend the boat trip and obviously choose the wet boat. Next up we visited the bird park, we got the free shuttle to the end of the park and then walked across the road to buy tickets. The bird park is 100% worth a visit, lots of parrots and toucans. Being in the National Park we were lucky enough to see toucans flying around us. The 2nd evening we ate in the al-carte restaurant. An excuse to wear a nice maxi dress. If you like fine cuisine then it’s worth a visit. When It came to checking out we were genuinely sad to have not spend even longer here. A Stunning hotel and anyone planning a trip to the falls would be silly not to stay here!
