When Do You Want To Go?

One of Rio's, and South America's, Finest Hotels

Opened in 1923, the grand and elegant Belmond Copacabana Palace is one of the most traditional and luxurious hotels, not only in Rio de Janeiro, but in all of South America. This architectural landmark was designed by French architect Joseph Gire, who was inspired by the Hotel Negresco in Nice and the Hotel Carlton in Cannes. The Belmond Copacabana Palace has undergone extensive renovations and refurbishments to ensure its position as South America'’s premiere hotel.

The hotel has a relaxing and attractive pool area which is the perfect spot to relax with a cocktail, catch up on a book and soak up some sunshine. For the more energetic, the hotel also offers a comprehensive fitness centre and for those seeking total relaxation, head for the hotel's spa - regarded as one of Rio's finest. Here you will find a relaxing and sophisticated atmosphere and extensive menu of treatments.

The Belmond Copacabana Palace has two restaurants including Pérgula, situated by the pool, and the popular Cipriani which offers a selection of northern Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting.

The hotel has 222 rooms and suites, each featuring fine period furniture and original works of art. All rooms evoke the elegance and sophistication of a glamorous era when Marlene Dietrich and Orson Welles were guests at the hotel.

Each room is also thoroughly modern, including Wi-Fi and iPod docks, and include special touches such as extra long pillows and complimentary traditional Brazilian slippers.


  • One of South America's finest and most famous hotels
  • Imposing and impressive historical building
  • Beautiful décor and surroundings
  • Great location at the heart of Copacabana Beach
