Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Set on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach, the Porto Bay Rio Internacional is one of our favourites. Whilst it has 117 rooms, it is one of the few on this stretch of beach to feel more boutique in style than the many unimaginative hotels in the city.
Well located, the recently remodelled top floor with its rooftop pool is a fantastic spot to relax after a morning exploring. The views of Copacabana Beach and Christ the Redeemer are hard to beat, especially at sunset with a caiprinha cocktail in your hand!
The bedrooms are bright and tasteful decorated with large windows, some offer a side on view of the beach or book a deluxe or suite for great beach front views. The majority come with a private balcony which should be taken advantage of as they are quite rare in Rio.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Rio de Janeiro into a greater Brazil & Latin America holiday. Take a look at Classic Brazil as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
