A striking, modern luxury hotel well placed in Copacabana beach, an oasis of calm to the action and the iconic sights of Rio
Strolling along the mighty Avenida Atlantica alongside the sweeping sands of Copacabana beach, you can't miss the striking façade of first class Hotel Emiliano. Wedged between classic luxury apartments it is a web of blazing white, and when you venture inside the innovatory style continues in the décor and furnishings.
This is real luxury throughout, with a contemporary twist. All the guest rooms in the gorgeous property are equipped with a glittering white marble bathroom featuring a free-standing bathtub. Rooms and suites which look out over the ocean offer a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the magnificent views over the beach. The rooftop solarium and bar, and the lap pool alongside, also have stunning vistas over the Atlantic, while the restaurant, embraced by greenery, serves an imaginative take on local gastronomy. This is a place to relax after a day out exploring, and the spa, with its menu of therapeutic treatments, hits the spot.
What our clients say
Most Memorable Moment?: We were lucky enough to have a major thunder storm overnight at the Iguazu falls and these were unbelievably spectacular the next day. Also the Lencois Marahenas was utterly beautiful and quite different to anything else we saw.KT, Andover

Highlight: The wildlife at Mutum - tapir, caimans, anteater, capybara, massive range of birdlifeDL, London
Every day was special and we have many happy memories but probably the highlights were the views from the top of Sugar Loaf, getting up close to waterfalls, swimming in the Rio Negro and whale watching.LL, Tonbridge
Most memorable was the approach toward the Falls on impossibly built metal walkways you could not have imagined the spectacle laid out before you. Our guide who sat on the prow of the boat and the atonishment as he leaped into the water distracting a Cayman and bringing it on board tightly held The view from the top looking down on Rio from the location of the Redemmer.AC, Saffron walden
Most Memorable Moment?: Probably seeing river otters at Pousada do Rio Mutum but we really liked the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls too.SS, Teddington
