Outstanding service in a colonial setting

Wake up to the roaring waterfalls and the stunning South America rainforest, the Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel within Brazil’s Iguazu National Park allowing you to stay as close as possible to one of the new seven natural wonders of the world, Iguazu Falls.

Part of the prestigious Belmond group synonymous with luxury, this iconic residence set in one of the most picturesque locations in the world offers a world class spa providing a range of therapies designed to comfort, energize and refresh with ingredients sourced directly from the rainforest. Dine in style at the two restaurants, relax at the laid back Ipe Grill and fine-dine at Itaipu with views of the falls from its’ open air terrace. In the evenings sip on cocktails around the pool.

The hotel is not just for relaxing, explore the area by going on jeep drives through the rainforest followed by a speedboat ride to Devil’s Pool, white water raft, follow trails to discover wildlife and fly in a helicopter – The most spectacular way to see the falls! On a full moon experience the magical experience of a lunar rainbow.

Continue your Brazilian adventure by exploring Rio and stay at the Belmond Copacabana Palace overlooking the iconic Copacabana beach.

Customer Service

toronto

We have just completed a 4 night stay at this property and were very satisfied. From the moment we arrived and were checked in by Sidney, we were treated extremely well. We dined at all options on the property, and it is obvious that all employees have been trained to know what excellent customer service is, and how to deliver it. With such a high standard, when an individual stands out, it is quite exceptional. Claudiano, who served us at breakfast each day, actually goes above an already very high standard of service, and was excellent. We used the concierge service for tours and airport transport. Great staff here as well...knowledgeable and eager to help. Overall terrific experience.

The only place to see the falls properly

Fareham, United Kingdom

It’s expensive but it’s very good. Access to the falls on your own and they are right on your doorstep. It’s a classic hotel but. Worth it. Service was excellent and pool area large. If you really want to get the best from your visit stay here. We transferred from IGR and again it’s expensive but worth it because their driver helps you through customs and you don’t need to wait for the shuttle from the park gate. The hotel is the only one in the park grounds. Lots of wildlife particularly at dusk.
