Top 7 luxury hotels in Brazil

There are endless places to stay in Brazil, and luxury accommodation is available in every district. Whether you fancy a boutique hotel, a private penthouse, or a decadent villa, Brazil has it all. Here we’ve picked out our favorites.

7. Mercure Grand Hotel Parque do Ibirapuera, Sao Paolo.

This French-inspired hotel is opulent and luxurious, oozing classic Hollywood glamour and style. With a fitness center, beauty salon, and fantastic restaurants within the hotel, you’ll find everything you need at the Mercure Grand. Standard and Superior rooms feature classic French décor, whereas the larger Suites take on a more modern layout. Well worth a look.

6. Hotel das Cataratas, Foz do Iguacu

With this hotel, the real luxury is the location. It is the only hotel you can find inside Iguacu National Park, and it backs out onto the famous Iguazu waterfall. Being inside the park is an unbelievable setting and will make it a stay to remember! Rooms are decorated in traditional Portuguese style and range from Superior Rooms to Cataratas Suites, each with free wi-fi access and the opportunity for private dining.

5. Grand Hyatt, Sao Paulo

World-renowned for their reliable elegance, Grand Hyatt hotels are an excellent choice when you’re looking for comfortable luxury in Sao Paulo. The hotel has a relaxing spa and health suite and a wine club, and many great restaurants. Multilingual staff, a concierge, and 24-hour room service are on hand to ensure your stay is trouble-free.

4. Pousada Estrela D’Agua, Bahia

Pousada is a Portuguese word meaning ‘place to stay.’ This may seem obvious when describing a hotel, but in Brazil, and especially with the example of Estrela D’Agua, they are so much more than that. Choose a suite nestled within the trees – many with private Jacuzzis – and lose yourself in Brazilian luxury. On-site spa treatments and massages will keep you relaxed and pampered throughout your stay and make you dread the day you have to leave.

3. Island of Mana, Angra do Reis

On your next trip to Brazil, you could stay on your own private island! Available to rent through WhereInRio, the leading name in luxury rentals in Rio de Janeiro, this island paradise will take your breath away! With its own dock and helipad, one house, and four bungalows, this island is ideal for groups with expensive taste. Not only is it the height of privacy and relaxation, but the island is also eco-friendly, as its electricity is provided by solar power.

2.The Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro

The famous Copacabana Palace is located a stone’s throw from Copacabana beach, combining two aspects of Rio’s rich history in one. Since its opening in 1923, the hotel has had just two owners and is a firm favorite with local and visiting celebrities, royalty, and politicians. Room choices run from city or beach view rooms to penthouse suites, complete with butler service and marble bathrooms.

1. Ponta dos Ganchos Exclusive Resort, Santa Catarina

Ponta dos Ganchos is nestled on an island, making it one of Brazil’s most exclusive hotel resorts. Stay in a private bungalow, and take advantage of the facilities on-site, including a tennis court, swimming pools, and amazing natural views! The only guest over eighteen years old is permitted to stay on the island to preserve its luxurious and relaxing atmosphere. See it for yourself and be blown away.
