Stay at the Belmond Copacabana Palace
Experience the bustle of Rio from a classically renowned base, for the glamorous Copacabana Palace is the best of the best to date. This beacon of luxury has reigned over the neighbourhood for close to a century. Much like a fine wine, its stunning facilities, vintage design and service have only matured with time.Wake to blue skies and glistening waters from your penthouse. The buzz of the beach, the pool, the streets below add temptation to the view, and it doesn’t take long for your feet to itch and hit the town. Once you’ve had your fill of action, the spa’s your next port of call. These royal pamperings precede an early evening cocktail, followed by inventive Michelin fusions that feed body and soul.
This legendary hotel is in the heart of Rio, and can be found directly on Copacabana Beach. The iconic neighbourhood remains a centre for dining and retail, surrounded by dive pubs, champagne houses and eclectic restaurants aplenty.
Design within this 147-room property exudes timeless elegance, splashed in chandeliers, marble and polished Brazilian wood. We recommend the top-floor suites for those who wish to splurge. These host the best views and access to a semi-private pool.
Who is it for
The vibe is especially attuned to older couples and business travellers, but that’s not to say those with children can’t enjoy the Palace as well. Indeed, the large pool and tennis court are both big hits with families.
Amenities & Activities
Beyond the fitness centre, first-class spa and third-floor rooftop tennis court, a huge ground-floor swimming pool is where life at the hotel most pulsates, with a stylish bar and casual eatery also found adjacent. Pan-Asian, Michelin-starred Mee and formal Cipriani complete this tantalising trio of in-house restaurants.
