“It’s utterly decadent and glamorous. For a slice of the high-life book into one of the seven penthouse suites that share a black swimming pool surrounded by plants.”
The legendary Belmond Copacabana Palace is a luxury hotel overlooking Copacabana Beach. Oozing old world glamour, the Art Deco building opened its doors in 1923 and has welcomed a glittering list of the rich and famous ever since, from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to the Rolling Stones and Nelson Mandela.
The rooms and suites have king-sized or twin polished wooden beds, fine period furniture, plush fabrics, original artworks, and opulent bathrooms of pink and white marble. Some of the suites have private balconies, while the penthouse floor has its own private pool and butler service.
Enjoy superb pan-Asian cuisine in the Michelin-starred Mee restaurant, or opt for Italian food at the Hotel Cipriani restaurant. The Pergula restaurant serves local classics and Mediterranean dishes from its poolside location.
The hotel offers a range of excursions and tours around Rio. Alternatively, relax with beach service on Copacabana Beach, lounge by the pool, play tennis, or get pampered in the spa.
