The only hotel within Brazil’s Iguassu National Park, this colonial-style residence is just a 2-minute stroll from the thundering action of the 275 Iguassu waterfalls. Set among tropical rainforest, it is encircled by trees that attract fascinating birds, animals and butterflies.
This natural paradise offers countless action-packed thrills—take a helicopter over the Falls or view the lunar rainbow, go white-water rafting or abseil down the gorge. Then retreat to this tranquil hotel, with its colourful Portuguese decor, beautiful pool and orchid-filled gardens.
How to get there
This luxurious Iguassu Falls oasis is ideally located near two airports, one of which is found on the Argentinian side of the Falls- namely Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport, and the other on the Brazil side of the falls; Foz do Iguaçu International Airport (found 15km from the resort).

Adjacent to the pool, Ipê Grill serves a delicious buffet breakfast.
After dark, the popular ‘gaucho’ style barbecue showcases tender meats accompanied by hot side dishes. And don’t forget to sample the extensive buffet, with a wide choice of salads, local and international dishes and classic Brazilian desserts.
The fine dining Itaipu Restaurant offers a blend of Brazilian-international fusion dishes. The exquisite flavour combinations have made Itaipu a popular destination for visiting foodies.
Take a seat inside the restaurant or request a table on the veranda and dine in glorious natural surroundings, overlooking the lush hotel grounds that stretch all the way to the falls.
