Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana, Brazil

From your suite’s balcony you watch the sun slowly setting over Copacabana Beach. It may be dusk, but the day is far from over. As you sip your cocktail, lights stretching along the bay flicker on, defining its shape in an ethereal, illuminated curve.

If you’re a true romantic, now is the time to step outside the Sofitel and stroll, hand-in-hand, along the promenade. It’s geometric, Portuguese-style paving patterns lead you along the sand towards one of the ancient forts that guard the beach. And all the time the rhythm of the sea provides background music.

Or you may decide on something a little livelier. The Sofitel puts you within easy reach of all the bright lights, bustling action, cultural and culinary delights of South America’s most scintillating city.
