Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is a beautifully restored, traditional Portuguese-colonial residence, just a stone's throw away from the mighty Iguaçu Falls. This is the only hotel located inside the Iguaçu National Park, and offers exclusive early morning and evening access, when the park is closed to visitors.

The hotel has 176 rooms and 17 suites, all with views of the falls, or gardens and forest. The Ipê Grill serves a gaucho style BBQ and the Itaipu Restaurant spills out onto an extensive veranda and serves a blend of Brazilian and international food. Recreational facilities include a tennis court, swimming pool, children's splash pool, spa and sun terrace. Adventure can be sought in the local national park with abseiling, rafting and nature trails.

Why we like it

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel located inside the Iguassu National Park, guests have exclusive access to the mighty Falls at dawn and in the evening when the park is closed to other visitors.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself at the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas on a full moon, make sure you join the unique full moon walking tour which sets out to witness a lunar rainbow over the falls, a rarely seen sight in most lifetimes.
