Since its opening in 1923, the Copacabana Palace has been synonymous with luxury travel in Rio de Janeiro. The hotel, which became part of the Orient-Express Hotels, Trains and Cruises in 1989, is a top choice for heads of state and celebrities visiting Rio as well as a landmark which helped spur the development of Copacabana and project Rio and Brazil tourism as a whole.

In late 2012, the latest renovations in the hotel's history were concluded.

Amenities at the Copacabana Palace

The pool area, one of the most attractive among Brazil hotels; the Cipriani restaurant, one of the best in Rio; Bar do Copa, opened in 2009, and the Copacabana Palace Spa with Shiseido and Natura products are some of the top amenities at the hotel.
