Hotel das Cataratas
Iguazu Falls, Brazil
Surrounded by dense Atlantic rain forest, Hotel das Cataratas is a grand Portuguese colonial-style property located just a few hundred yards from Iguazu Falls, and the only accommodation inside Iguazu National Park. Pale pink buildings are set within lush grounds and lavish gardens filled with delicate orchids, nourished by spray from the nearby falls. Gracious rooms feature polished wood floors and classic Portuguese-style furnishings, with dark woods and splashes of color. All rooms have spacious en suite bathrooms with deluxe toiletries, widescreen LCD TV, wireless Internet access and a mini bar. A magnificent swimming pool offers refreshment, while the luxury spa features treatments that incorporate an array of responsibly harvested ingredients sourced directly from the rain forests of Brazil. Several indoor and outdoor restaurants provide a range of excellent dining opportunities.
