Do the World Cup in Style: Our Favourite Luxury Rio de Janeiro Hotels

The international party that will be the 2014 World Cup is fast approaching, and if you’re thinking of going you’ll have to start working out the details very soon.  One important aspect of a World Cup trip is where you’re going to stay while in Rio de Janeiro.  Naturally, a city like Rio has many different hotels to choose from, including world-class luxury hotels.  Here are some of our favourites.

Copacabana Palace
Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro has been welcoming the rich and famous since it opened in 1923.  The Copacabana Palace is situated so it looks over Copacabana beach, and it features such amenities as two fine dining restaurants, soothing hotel spa, tennis court and picturesque swimming pool.

Each room boasts original works of art, and in 2011 it was given the award for the leading hotel in Brazil and South America.

Fasano Rio de Janeiro

The Fasano in Rio de Janeiro is another luxury address that will help you do the World Cup in style.  The hotel was designed by Philippe Starck, a world-renowned architect who used this property to reflect the Bossa Nova era of architecture.

The Fasano sits in the middle of Ipanema Beach, and you’ll have no shortage of shopping or dining options between World Cup matches.  This hotel features three restaurants, a full-service spa, as well as a rooftop pool, fitness center and full business amenities.  In 2012, the Fasano was named as South America’s top boutique hotel.

Tivoli Mofarrej Sao Paulo
The Tivoli Mofarrej Sao Paulo is located in the beautiful Jardins district, in the heart of Sao Paulo.  This hotel derives its luxury rating from its modern decor, award-winning cuisine, heater outdoor pool, exquisite views and Asian Spa.  The Tivoli is also home to the largest presidential suite in Latin America!

Whether you take advantage of an exclusive Roadtrips World Cup vacation or make other arrangements, these hotels will really add some style and luxury to your trip.  Roadtrips has exclusive access to bookings at these and other luxurious Rio hotels, so book with us today for the best accommodations during the World Cup!

Everything about my experience with Roadtrips in the lead up to our trip was very professional. Our trip was truly memorable for a number of reasons. Not least of all was that I became engaged to my fiancee. The Roadtrips team could not have done more for us (other than kick a few more goals for Australia) and I would have no hesitation in using Roadtrips again for luxury sports experiences or recommending Roadtrips to friends and family. Roadtrips is a luxury/premium offering - and I certainly had a luxury/premium experience that will be a fabulous memory for the rest of our lives. I look forward to being a "repeat Roadtrips client”.
