Luxury Holidays At Copacabana Palace, A Belmond Hotel, Rio de Janerio

The luxurious Copacabana Palace, A Belmond Hotel, Rio de Janerio has an enviable location on Copacabana Beach, one of the most beautiful areas of Brazil, and boasts impeccable service with sophisticated refinement. An ideal place to stay in Rio de Janeiro, guests can absorb the incomparable atmosphere of carnival time, which takes place in the four days leading up to Shrove Tuesday, or the fireworks on New Year’s Eve. Renowned for glitz and glamour since it opened its doors in 1923, having been restored in 2012, the hotel has long attracted the famous and the beautiful, including Marlene Dietrich and Marilyn Monroe. The original Art Deco splendour exudes throughout from the Antique Casino, with its crystal and marble fittings, to the grand Front Room that has featured in movies including the 1933 film ‘Flying Down to Rio’ starring Fred Astaire. Guest accommodation comprises elegant rooms and suites that boast views of either the ocean or the city, but for the ultimate in luxury, the Penthouse Suites − most with private terrace, are located on the sixth floor and feature original art, French fabrics, butler service and exclusive use of a private swimming pool and a wet bar. Spend your days sunning yourself by the pool, shopping in the exquisite boutiques or indulging in spa and wellness treatments, before sipping cocktails at the Piano Bar and dining at one of the hotel’s restaurants on dishes including the local feijoada stew. For the ultimate way to celebrate a special occasion, why not book a private party in the stunning and sought-after, Golden Room.

Luxury Beach

The hotel's beach service, on Copacabana Beach, provides sun loungers, umbrellas and chilled water to hotel guests, while Beach Assistants are on-hand to look after your personal belongings if you wish to venture for a walk along the sands or take a dip in the sea.

Spa Breaks

The hotel’s spa is an urban sanctuary kitted out in a contemporary style, featuring nine treatment rooms − including two designed for couples, a hair salon, sauna, steam bath and relaxation area. A wide range of treatments, that use the AYASPA brand of organic products, derived from açaí and guaraná fruits, white clay from the Amazon and essential oils, include rituals and massages that purify, tone and revitalise.

There is also an air-conditioned fitness centre that boasts the latest cardiovascular and resistance workout equipment. Stretching classes, personal trainer and power plate sessions are also available. In addition there is a swimming pool − one of Rio’s largest, with a team of Pool Assistants ready to cater to your every wish from handing you clean towels to delivering a refreshing drink or a snack from the pool menu. If you would prefer to stretch your limbs by doing a sporty activity, a game of tennis can be arranged for you.

Culture & History

The hotel offers a range of excursions including a half-day tour that takes you through the Tijuca Forest, to Corcovado Hill to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer and then take a cable-car ride up to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. If you'd prefer to explore by foot, there is a guided historic walking tour that starts with a ride along the subway to downtown where you will hear all about Rio's royal, colonial and religious heritage, stopping at points of interest including Tiradentes Palace, the 18th century Paço and the 17th-century São Bento Monastery. For something a little different, every Sunday, guests can join the monks of the Monastery of St Benedict for Catholic Mass, then visit the 'Hippie Fair' where there are plenty of arts and crafts to purchase as souvenirs of your time in Brazil. For a colourful evening full of fun, the Plataforma Show presents a fantastic opportunity to listen to samba music and watch the samba dance performed.
