As for most people visiting Iguazu falls is a once in a lifetime experience, I would highly recommend to book your stay in Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas. This amazing luxury hotel lies in the middle of the Iguazu National Park in Brazil. Besides its location with the view on the falls it has all assets you can expect from a luxury hotel. It’s built in a colonial style and has a large swimming pool, 2 restaurants, a bar, a sitting area with a fireplace (we visited in May, which is winter in Brazil) and very spacious, luxurious rooms. The service of the staff is outstanding and the food is high quality. There are two restaurants to choose from:
- fine dining at Itaipu Restaurant: a tempting selection of signature Brazilian-international dishes
- Lunch and dining options at Ipê Restaurant: à la carte lunch menu inspired by Brazilian dishes and dinner might be a Gaucho bbq of meats, fish and vegetables.
Looking for something extra? how about these options?

Picnic on the lawn while enjoying the falls
Many people come here to celebrate their wedding or honeymoon.
We were here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and got an excellent service. We received an upgrade and our room was decorated very romantically with rose leaves everywhere on the floor and the bed. On our little table there was a delicious chocolate cake for the two of us.
On the bed there were two pillows with our names on to take back home as a present. We felt really special and we can't thank the hotel management enough for this extra service and amazing stay.
We saw toucans flying over the swimming pool and beautiful colored birds and colibri’s in the hotel garden. Don't forget to climb the tower to enjoy an unforgettable sunset view!
You can book tours at the hotel and I would highly recommend the first light walk to see the sunrise on the falls or the morning walk with a guide. You discover the beauty of the falls in private as the park isn’t open yet to the public. An unforgettable experience! If you are lucky to stay at the hotel during full moon: take the full moon walking tour and you will have the amazing experience of a lunar rainbow.
The concierge service at the hotel is excellent, you can ask for all assistance you might need.
Upon arrival at the National Park from the airport a shuttle service will drive you from the entrance to the hotel.
TIP! As for the bird park, we visited this on our first day. It’s best to visit here before entering the park as you drive next to it coming from the airport. You can easily visit before the taking the transfer from the entrance of the park to the hotel.
Have you visited this amazing hotel yet? If not, you should at it to your list!
