The Experience

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

The Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel located within the Iguassu National Park, with the world famous Iguassu Falls just a two minute stroll away.  As the only hotel within the national park, guests are able to enjoy exclusive access to the falls each morning before the park opens.  The Iguassu Falls are a breathtaking collection of 275 waterfalls, extending over almost 3km in an enormous canyon on the Iguassu River.  We are pleased to be able to offer a range of experiences within this spectacular region including helicopter flights, rafting, nature walks, jeep safaris and a visit to the bird park..

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas has 193 room including 15 suites.  The main building houses 52 bedrooms including 10 suites.  The Garden Wing houses 64 bedrooms including 1 Junior Suite and the Forest Wing houses 77 rooms including 3 Junior Suites.  Rooms are decorated in a Portuguese style featuring paintings of the local flora and fauna by the Brazilian artist Ludmilla de Montes.  The rooms also feature traditional Azueljos painted tiles, designed exclusively for Hotel das Cataratas, polished wooden floors, air-conditioning, LCD TV screens/cable TV, DDD and DDI direct dial telephone, free wifi internet access, mini-bar, individual safe, radio alarm clock, hairdryers, and more. Some rooms and suites feature balconies.  Rooms offer garden or forest view, and some of the rooms face the spectacular falls.

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas has two restaurants, the Ipê Grill alongside the pool and the Restaurante Itaipu which boasts an outside veranda.  International cuisine and local dishes are served in both restaurants.  Local dishes and specialities are extensive and have been shaped by the eclectic population of the Iguassu region and its variety of culinary influences.  Fish predominates due to a plentiful supply from the nearby rivers.  If you would prefer to relax in the comfort of your room there is also a choice of food and beverages available from room service.

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas has excellent facilities for recreational activities. Both sporting and more leisurely pursuits are available on the property, all of which are available free of charge to guests.  Facilities include tennis court, swimming pool, children’s pool, a spa, and sun terrace.  A few minutes drive from the hotel is the Iguassu Golf Club and Resort which offers both a 9 hole and and 18 hole course (charges apply).

The Iguassu National Park, home to the Iguassu Waterfalls is one of the top attractions in Brazil and is sometimes described as being one of the seven natural Wonders of the World. Enjoy the view from a different angle and come with us abseiling, rafting or rock and tree climbing among the hundreds of species of flora and fauna this amazing area has to offer.
