The Emiliano Rio de Janeiro boasts a privileged location right on Copacabana Beach, one of the most iconic stretches of coast in Brazil. Contemporary yet with 1950s inspired details, the property is elegant and provides a welcoming space, the highlight being the rooftop infinity pool from which to enjoy sunsets and scenes over Copacabana and the ocean beyond.

Comprising just 90 rooms and suites, the Emiliano has a slightly more intimate feel than many of the other hotels along Rio's beachfront. Each of the rooms is elegantly designed with warm wooden floors, glass-fronted marble bathrooms and plush white bed linens. Windows are large and look out through the design wall which forms the Emiliano's striking facade to the ocean, or alternatively to the hotel courtyard. Peel back the wall for uninterrupted views.

Up on the roof is the perfect spot for poolside lounging. Enjoy idyllic evening views from the infinity pool as the sun sets over the city or stretch out on one of the loungers, cocktail in hand from the conveniently located bar. Light dishes and healthy snacks are readily available but for something more substantial, head down to the Emile Restaurant where contemporary dishes are served to reflect the overall feel of the hotel.


There are 90 rooms at the Emiliano Rio de Janeiro, 28 of which are suites. All are contemporary with a 1950s touch and measure from 42sqm to 120sqm, either boasting a courtyard view or an ocean view. Deluxe Rooms can be furnished with either a king bed or two queen beds. Bathrooms are elegant and marble, all with a separate bathtub and shower, and in ocean view rooms and suites they also enjoy views out to the ocean which can be adjusted for privacy.


Facilities at Emiliano Rio de Janeiro include a spa which is exclusive to hotel guests and also features a fitness center and two saunas. A range of relaxing treatments are on offer and guests can also enjoy personal training sessions or yoga classes. One 15-minute complimentary massage is included for each guest during their stay, which can be added on to other treatments.

Dining at Emiliano Restaurant is a delight, with contemporary cuisine on offer in the main restaurant. meanwhile on the rooftop, guests will find a more informal setting where healthy meals and light seafood dishes are served. There is also a lobby bar and a rooftop pool bar where guests can enjoy delicious cocktails and the fantastic views over Copacabana from the roof.


Rio is a fantastic city just waiting to be explored. Excursions can be arranged to visit some of the highlights including the famous Corcovado monument (Christ the Redeemer), Sugar Loaf, the Tijuca forest and the bohemian quarter of Santa Teresa. Try a Brazilian cookery class, explore the street art in a pacified favela or simply relax on one of the city's many iconic beaches.

When to go

Rio de Janeiro is a year round destination. Spring (September - October) is one of the nicest times to visit Rio, before the humidity sets in. Rio's forests and gardens are lush and beautiful to see at this time. Summer vacation begins in mid-December and lasts until February. During this time the beaches are packed with Cariocas working on their tans. This can also be the rainiest time of year in Rio. The heavy heat starts around October and will reach 40 degrees Celsius on a sunny day. Winter vacation happens in July and, although the days can stay hot, the evenings in Rio get relatively chilly dropping to 15 degrees Celsius. The winds and dampness can make this feel colder. Summers are best for diving while the winter months (June - August) are the best for surfers. Carnaval is held every year, 7 weeks before Easter Sunday. During this period, and often the weeks leading up to it, Rio is at its liveliest. It is also a time when prices skyrocket and crowds can become unbearable.
