Built in 1923 for the visiting king of Belgium and inspired by Nice's Negresco and Cannes's Carlton, the Copacabana was the first luxury hotel in South America, and it's still one of the top hotels on the continent. Since its Art Deco doors swung open, Belmond Copacabana Palace has been welcoming the rich and famous.

Superbly positioned overlooking Copacabana Beach, this is the best place to stay in Rio. Soak up the sun in the magnificent pool or join Brazil’s style setters at the Piano Bar. And don’t miss the hotel’s top restaurants, whether for great local dishes or fine Italian dining at the Hotel Cipriani Restaurant.

The Pool Terrace serves drinks and light meals throughout the day. In the evening unwind with a traditional caipirinha and enjoy live music from the resident pianist at Copacabana Piano Bar whilst night owls can dance the night away at the chic poolside Bar do Copa. 

For Gay couples seeking absolute luxury in a gay friendly atmosphere, Copacabana Palace Hotel is an excellent pick to make you feel like queer honeymoon royalty.
