Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas
Why we like it
- Most of the suites have private balconies. All rooms are air-conditioned
- The Hotel das Cataratas is the only hotel within the Iguaçu National Park (on the Brazilian side), and is surrounded by tropical nature alongside the Iguaçu Falls
- Dining options include Ipê Grill alongside the pool and the Restaurante Itaipu - both serve international cuisine and local dishes
- The spa offers a range of treatments based on responsibly-harvested, sustainable ingredients from the rainforests of Brazil
- The hotel has a large swimming pool and smaller children's pool. Both are surrounded by lush gardens
- Other facilities and activities include bars, tennis courts, abseiling, water rafting, helicopter tours and a wide range of unforgettable 'Iguassu Experiences'

Melissa very quickly worked out our likes and dislikes and came up with the perfect itinerary for us. She had maximized the tour in the short time to include as much as possible without making it an ordeal!

Completely refurbished in 2009, the Hotel das Cataratas is a Portuguese-colonial residence. It is a classic Orient-Express hotel, redolent with the atmosphere of lazy days lounging on a veranda or beneath sub-tropical palms.
The rooms are decorated in a Portuguese style and feature paintings of the local flora and fauna by the Brazilian artist Ludmilla de Montes, alongside traditional Azulejos "painted tiles" designed exclusively for Hotel das Cataratas. The suites follow a similar decorative style, with the addition of outdoor spaces in many cases. All have lovely, marble-lined bathrooms.
This charming hotel is a fantastic location from which to experience the magnificence of the Iguaçu Falls, or to explore the paths leading to the mighty Devil's Throat.
