Your five-star hotel is located near the edge of the falls on the Brazilian side and is the only hotel within Iguaçu National Park.

As most of the falls are on the Argentinian side, the Brazilian side has spectacular panoramic views as you follow a forest trail down to the canyon. Get close enough to feel the spray on your face and gaze awe-struck as thousands of gallons of water roar over the edge every second. The most thrilling highlight here is the mighty ‘Devil’s Throat’ which you can view from just 200 metres away.
