Copacabana Palace, a Belmond Hotel, Rio De Janeiro Celebrates Its Centenary 

Colourful Cuisine

Copacabana Palace is a gastronomic hub, home to two Michelin-starred restaurants: the contemporary pan-Asian MEE and Italian destination Ristorante Hotel Cipriani, led by the Italian chef Nello Cassese; as well as the charming Pérgula, one of the city’s most celebrated Carioca restaurants, serving authentic South American fare overlooking the city’s most glamourous swimming pool and Copacabana Beach.

Throughout the commemorative year, the restaurants will host important guest chefs and gastronomic events, while the already prestigious “Master Series”, a collection of events that bring renowned chefs to cook alongside the in-house team, will welcome big names in international cuisine for the first time in its history. The first guest chef confirmed for 2023 is Virgilio Martinez, from the award-winning “Central” restaurant in Lima, Peru – named No.1 at Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 awards ceremony.

A Carioca Icon

The famed history of the most traditional and luxurious hotel in Rio de Janeiro began with its construction by businessman, Octávio Guinle, in 1923 – a suggestion from the then President of the Republic, Epitácio Pessoa. 

Designed by French architect, Joseph Gire and inspired by the famous Negresco hotels in Nice and the Carlton hotels in Cannes, Copacabana Palace, a Belmond Hotel, has been a symbol of excellence and hospitality in Brazil and around the world ever since. Located at the one of best-known addresses in the city, on the beachfront of Avenida Atlântica, the hotel has been the stage of major events in Rio, hosting kings, queens, presidents, and celebrities.
