Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

Originally a Portuguese-colonial residence, the pink-hued Belmond Hotel das Cataratas is located right within the Iguacu National Park. A classic luxury hotel set in tropical gardens, a recent renovation has ensured the décor and facilities are up to date and in keeping with the luxurious Belmond brand.

White water rafting, helicopter trips over the gorge and jungle treks provide the perfect adrenalin rush for adventure sports enthusiasts, or you can just take in the sights and sounds of one of nature’s most impressive sights. Just a short stroll from the hotel, guests enjoy exclusive access to the falls in the evening and at dawn.

Facilities & Activities

At the heart of the hotel is the beautifully designed swimming pool. Heated throughout the winter months (mid-May to mid-August), you can enjoy a dip whatever the time of year. There is a separate children’s pool for younger guests to splash about in.

For those who like to stay fit whilst on holiday there is a fully equipped, air-conditioned gym with lovely views over the pool. Fresh water, fruit, towels and a Bose iPod station are supplied.

Tennis fans will appreciate the hotel courts set within extensive gardens. Equipment can be provided by the hotel, so there’s no excuse not to have a game here during your stay.
