Belmond Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro

Walk through the grand entrance and into the prestigious lobby of the Copacabana Palace and you’ll be following in the footsteps of a varied procession of the world’s most prominent people. Sir Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, Nelson Mandela, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Anthony Hopkins, Kiri Te Kanawa, Michael Schumacher, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire – to name but a few – have all been guests of the Palace during its illustrious, 90 year history.

Breakfast on your private terrace overlooking the deep blue of the Southern Atlantic, or walk barefoot over the fine white sand of Copacabana Beach, and you’ll understand why the hotel attracts so many celebrities. It is a celebration in its own right – of handsome Art Deco architecture, of elegance, of service and of glorious food.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
