Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

Belmond Hotels are well known for having some of the most unique hotels in the world and Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is no exception.  As is often the case Orient Express has taken an old grand hotel and brought it back to this century while at the same time maintaining its wonderful colonial character. Rooms have been meticulously renovated by the designer responsible for the décor of Copacabana Palace in Rio.  If you prefer large rooms with high ceilings rather the contemporary alternative in the area, then this is the only place to stay.

The grounds and Hotels das Cataratas’s proximity to the world famous Iguacu Falls is another reason why you’ll love staying here.  Hotel das Cataratas is the the best hotel in Iguacu and its immediate elevation to Virtuoso status and membership is testament to this. 

There are two airports in the area and if you’re coming from North America or Europe Iguacu (IGU) airport is the closet.  There are frequent non-stops from Rio and Sao Paulo.  Once you land you’re only about 20 minutes from the National Park and Hotel das Cataratas.  It’s an easy non-stop flight from Rio or Sao Paulo.

When they completed the marvelous renovation Orient Express made sure that the leisure facilities were the best and the best they are, and right in the middle of world Heritage Iguacu National Park.  The redone swimming pool is beautiful. The Ipe Bar & Grill at Hotel das Cataratas offers a locally inspired menu with impressive views of the lush gardens.

If you’ve never been to Iguacu Falls you owe it to yourself to see these 275 cataracts that stretch for two miles with falls as high as 300 feet falling into the Parana River.  You can almost see the falls from your luxury room at Hotel das Cataratas but one morning get up at sunrise and have the concierge arrange a private tour including a boat trip on the river.  The combination of seeing hundreds of species of flora and fauna (think toucans and jaguars) in the early morning mist as they rise is not only a wonderful experience but one which is relatively easy to do for most.  After you’ve seen the falls and the jungle from this perspective Hotel das Cataratas can arrange a helicopter to provide another spectacular once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The staff at Hotel da Cataratas takes their cue from their sister hotel, the Copacabana Palace in Rio.  The same thoughtful and exemplary staff will coddle and guarantee that your excursion to this famed Brazilian jungle will be well worth the investment of time spent.
