Iguaçu National Park

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas


Tropical hacienda

Surrounded by lush rainforest with unmatched views of the falls, Belmond’s pastel pink Hotel das Cataratas enjoys a fabulous position as the only hotel in Brazil's Iguaçu National Park.

187 rooms and suites have been handsomely restored to their original 1950s charm with a playful tropical theme carried through into the hotel’s inviting dining spaces, caipirinha bar and lounges.

Outside find a swimming pool surrounded by palms and lush orchid gardens soundtracked by birdlife and howler monkeys. Being inside the park, you’ll also get access to the mighty falls at dawn after a short stroll from the lobby.

    River safari

    One of the best ways to experience the Lower Falls is by speedboat. As part of the popular Macuco Safari, you’ll start your journey with a jeep ride through the rainforest canopy before transferring to a speedboat downriver. The views of The Three Musketeers and Devil’s Throat are unmissable.
