Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas

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.

Mind-blowing visit

Great Yeldham, United Kingdom

My husband and I visited this hotel during the current world wide health crisis. We were concerned that we would not be able to visit the falls however we ended up having the most special of experiences, as we were had the falls all to ourselves😲 All of the staff at the hotel made our stay memorable during this difficult time. We cannot fault this hotel at all and would highly recommend.
