Belmond Copacabana Palace

Belmond Copacabana Palace

Taking its place alongside Rio’s greatest landmarks, including Christ the Redeemer statue and the Sambódromo, is Belmond Copacabana Palace. This art deco icon has ruled over its namesake beach since 1923, and its dazzling lobby ensures its reign will continue. All rooms are redecorated with period furniture, original artwork and modern amenities, including plasma televisions and iPod docks; book a Deluxe Beach View Room with a Juliet-style balcony. The spa uses local ingredients like acai and guarana; Hotel Cipriani Restaurant hosts the city’s most coveted Chef’s Table, and Michelin-star MEE presents Rio's best Pan-Asian cuisine.

Hotel Tip

Don’t miss the exclusive Chef's Table experience at Hotel Cipriani Restaurant, or the Michelin-starred Pan-Asian gastronomic journey at Restaurant MEE.

Got upgraded to penthouse suite (room 171). Extraordinary room with great view of the beach.....except the A/C blows right on the bed giving us a very bad cold! Staff and service was exceptional. Beautiful property with gorgeous pool as its focal point.

Loved this hotel though we were there for only one night! Very elegant service. The room was very nice. Loved sitting at the pool and loved the food.

The hotel is well worth the indulgence. Beautiful location across from Copacabana Beach, excellent service from check -in til check-out. Dinner at Cipriani was an elegant gourmand's delight. The pool area is well cared for and comfortable. Pool service equally well done. The rooms are comfortable, spotless and well-appointed.
