Copacabana Palace

Old-world luxury shines in this grand Rio hotel that has been a city mainstay for nearly a century. Outfitted with opulent chandeliers, marble, and miles of local Brazilian wood, the Palace's interior manages to match the class of its decadent exterior, which sits proudly on a private stretch of the world-famous Copacabana beach.

La Suite by Dussol

A celebrity favorite, La Suite is an idealistic escape for honeymooners that want a more exclusive experience while in Rio. Located in the clifftop village of JoĆ” (think the Beverly Hills of Rio), La Suite is more of a seductive private villa than traditional hotel. Endless panoramic views, private terraces, and personable service make for an intimate honeymoon stay. Plus, Joatinga Beach - a short walk from the villa - is Rio's new hottest beach by those in the know.

Ponta dos Ganchos

One of Brazil's most exclusive beach resorts, the Ponta dos Ganchos promises intimacy, privacy, and rejuvenation. Set on its own private peninsula, the resort fronts a marvelous stretch of the Emerald Coast and is bound by lush tropical rainforest. A phenomenal breakfast, with an endless backdrop of sparkling sea views, sets the tone for a day of pure relaxation in this adults-only paradise. Take advantage of the miles of marked hiking trails, where waterfalls and distant whale sightings are common occurrences.

Belmond Hotel das Cataratas

Surrounded by 700,000 acres of national park, Belmond's luxury hotel offers unprecedented access to the stunning Iguazu Falls. The hotel is grand on all levels and predictably gorgeous - outfitted in colonial charm that the Belmond name is known for all throughout Brazil - but without a doubt, its star amenity is its location beside Iguazu Falls. As the only hotel situated in the park, the Belmond offers guests a front-row seat to the marvelous natural display all throughout the day.

UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa

What was once a fashion designer's holiday home has transformed into one of the region's most respected accommodations. The rustic-chic grounds of UXUA consists of just 11 deluxe casitas amidst the leafy wilderness of the seaside village of Trancoso. Striking the ideal balance between luxurious and laid-back, this rainforest retreat is the perfect place to lose track of time and practice the art of doing nothing. Cooking lessons, Capoeira practices, kayaking, and plenty more activities around Bahia can be arranged if you prefer to blend some action into your itinerary.
