Belmond Hotel das Cataratas, Iguassu Falls

The roaring in your ears is terrific. The sight before your eyes is practically incomprehensible. The power of millions of gallons of water crashing over the Falls is simply unimaginable, almost bewildering.

Whether you’re taking advantage of staying at the only hotel in Iguassu National Park, and visiting the Falls as the descending sun turns them gold – or soaring over them in helicopter, camera working overtime – you will find them a mesmerising spectacle.

Hotel das Cataratas is pretty awesome too. A classic Portuguese/colonial style residence, it sits in orchid-strewn tropical gardens and features two outstanding restaurants; one with an open veranda and the other with a poolside grill serving traditional gaucho barbecues. The perfect, relaxing lift after a day at the Falls.
