Copacabana Palace

Bookmark and Share Share

Add to Preferred Print Version Private Jet Vacations: Hotels

Most of the daytime action at the sun-soaked Copacabana Palace, located across the street from Rio de Janeiro’s popular Copacabana Beach, takes place around the hotel’s majestic swimming pool. Reclining in chaise longues, guests sunbathe and sip caipirinhas on the expansive pool terrace. When night falls, they trade swimwear for evening attire, but they often reconvene back at the terrace, where a band plays samba and bossa nova under the stars.

At the height of Brazilian summer, usually in February but sometimes March, the Copacabana Palace serves as a home base for visitors attending Carnival. Locals, too, arrive in droves to see and be seen at the hotel’s annual Copa Ball. But even those who miss the four-day festival are certain to find revelry in Rio. The concierge will arrange any number of excursions in the city, including a visit to a pre-Carnival samba rehearsal. In a hall larger than a football field, dancers practice their moves while percussionists pound out samba beats and guests eat, drink, and enjoy the views.

Many of the hotel’s 225 rooms and suites have ocean views, and all feature period furnishings and original artworks. The one-bedroom pool suites include sitting rooms and verandas overlooking the beach. 

Two swimming pools, a rooftop tennis court, a fitness center, a new spa, a beauty salon, a business center, and 13 function rooms including the 500-guest Salon Nobre.

Gourmet northern Italian cuisine at the elegant Hotel Cipriani restaurant, and Brazilian buffet and afternoon tea poolside at Pergula.

Concierge Recommends
Visit the nearby Bar Garota de Ipanema (formerly the Bar Velosa), where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes penned “The Girl from Ipanema” in 1962 while they drank beer and watched beautiful women walk to the beach. Little has changed at the bar except for its name.

From $510 for a deluxe city-view room to $2,760 for a penthouse suite with ocean vistas.
