Belmond Das Cataratas ● Iguazu ● Brazil
Owned and managed by the excellent Belmond group, the Das Cataratas hotel is the only property inside the Iguazu national park on the Brazilian side of the falls. This privileged position means guests have exclusive access to the park after the gates close and the crowds have gone home. Built in the style of a Portuguese colonial residence, the bright pink building looks out over the falls and partial views are possible from some rooms.
“The elegant and luxurious Das Cataratas hotel is easily the best option out of all the hotels on either side of the falls.”
The stately rooms are decorated in a classic and decadent style with high quality furnishings and luxury bed linen. There is a fantastic swimming pool area with poolside drinks service and the Ipe Grill, a traditional Brazilian BBQ. Other facilities include two other restaurants where there is often live music, tennis courts, a full service spa, and a sun terrace.
