Emiliano Rio

5 star boutique hotel on Copacabana Beach

Emiliano Rio

Located on the iconic Copacabana beach the Emiliano Rio provides Rio de Janeiro with an exclusive luxury hotel with the highest levels of sophistication, service and style which mirrors their sister property in Sao Paulo.

There are 90 rooms in total at the Emiliano Rio – divided into eight categories that vary from 42 to 120sqm. All have a spacious feel and offer guests supreme comfort in the most modern surroundings. Superb design is featured throughout and natural light has been cleverly used to generate bright spaces which are complemented by the vibrant colours of the contemporary furniture. All the rooms come with a bathtub and a very comfortable sofa-bed that any accompanying children can sleep on. Besides the size, the principle difference between the room categories is the view. The luxury courtyard is the only one that is situated at the rear of the hotel and has an internal view of the other buildings. This category also has twin bed options available. The other categories face the sea and benefit from lovely balconies. The panels that cover the building’s façade add an interesting touch in terms of style, and are very easy to open. Even when closed there is still plenty of natural light entering the rooms.

The Emiliano Rio’s design concept by Arthur de Mattos Casas pays tribute to Brazilian modernism, bringing together sophistication and comfort with the laid-back quality of Rio lifestyle. The hotel has two restaurants. Emiliano on the ground floor will offer innovative Italian-inspired dishes carefully prepared with the finest Brazilian ingredients, and will also be open to the public. The second is on the remarkable private rooftop and features a menu based on fresh seafood using seasonal and organic produce. It sits next to the delightful infinity pool that boasts sweeping views across Copacabana. Guests will also be able to enjoy the huge Santapele Spa which will provide an extensive variety of multi-sensory experiences and treatments to rebalance the body and mind.

The Emiliano Rio offers an excellent 5-star luxury hotel option on Copacabana Beachfront, which will be perfect for the New Year celebrations and is without a doubt one of our favourites.
