A jewel crowning the golden sands of the Copacabana Beach, this glamorous landmark is among the best hotels in Rio de Janeiro.

Since its Art Deco doors opened in 1923, Belmond Copacabana Palace has played host to the world’s rich, famous and stylish. The hotel’s unrivalled position means it is centre stage for Rio’s biggest events, including Carnival and New Year’s Eve.

Guests can soak up the sun by the magnificent pool. Be pampered with a luxury treatment at the spa, or mingle with Brazil’s trendsetters over Caipirinhas at the bar. They shouldn’t miss the hotel’s top restaurants, featuring great local dishes, contemporary Asian cuisine and fine Italian dining.

The 2023 Rio Congress will take place in the Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, where the academic programme, exhibitors’ showcase and multiple networking opportunities will be hosted.


More information will be available soon.
