Sitting just a stones-throw from the breathtaking Iguassu Falls at the border between Brazil and Argentina, the hacienda-style Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas brings understated luxury to an exotic jungle setting. This historic hotel has been restored to its 1950s glory, offering a calm and cool counterpoint to the rushing waters of the Iguassu and the steamy rainforest just outside its doors. The 187 spacious rooms and suites are equipped with vintage furniture, hung with colourful paintings of local plants and animals by Brazilian artist Ludmilla de Montes and decorated with bespoke painted azujelos tiles.
After a day exploring the falls and spotting wildlife in the dense jungle, cool off in the hotel's pool, before heading to the Itaipu restaurant to sample innovative Brazilian cuisine like pirarucu fish in banana manioc flour and mantecosa cheese ravioli with green asparagus and truffle broth.
