The Orient Express Das Cataratas sits right next to the Iguazu Falls, surrounded by tropical forest. This is undoubtedly the most special and luxurious option for a stay at the falls.
What's special about Das Cataratas?
The location of the hotel is unbeatable, right by the falls, surrounded by tropical gardens and forest. Being part of Belmond, the standard of accommodation, facilities and service is first class.
There are 193 rooms and suites all of a very high standard. They are decorated in a classic Portuguese style, with dark-wood furnishings. The sought after deluxe falls view rooms offer as you'd expect, spectacular views over the falls.
There is an outdoor pool open all year, and heated in the (relatively) cool months from mid May to mid August. There is a separate children's pool. Other leisure facilities include a gym with panoramic windows, tennis courts and a spa. A range of food and drink is available from the grill, restaurant and bar.
