Spa, Sip and Samba at Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro


Whether unwinding at the Copacabana Palace Spa, or dancing the night away at the new Bar do Copa, Rio’s legendary Copacabana Palace offers a myriad of tantalizing treats:

SPA—Copacabana Palace Spa is located over three floors of the hotel, offering an array of treatments reflecting Brazil’s lively spirit and intoxicating rhythm.  Prepare for your night out with the Bossa Nova Package, which includes a body scrub and massage performed to the rhythm of Bossa Nova songs. Or, try the Amazon package, which was designed exclusively for the Copacabana Palace Spa.  This package focuses on harmony with nature and the promotion of well-being through hydro massages and the use of indigenous herbs from the Amazon Forest.

SIP—After a relaxing day at the spa, head to the Copacabana Palace’s brand new Bar do Copa.   This new Rio hotspot features cocktails named after the iconic personalities that once graced the hallways of this landmark hotel.  Martinis named after the classic movie “Flying Down to Rio” celebrate its stars Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, who danced together for the first time in that movie.  Or, try one of the frozen cocktails like the Josephine Baker, made with vodka, mango and banana and served in a glass resembling the silhouette of a woman.


SAMBA— The Bar do Copa boasts a busy live music calendar for all days of the week and its own resident performers, the Copa Jam Band, plays classic and contemporary Brazilian music with a mix of international jazz and pop. Once you’ve warmed up with a few Fred Astaire’s, take a stroll down the Bar do Copa’s bronze walkway and onto the large golden dance floor.  Feeling confident?  Grab a partner and try your hand at Brazil’s most famous dance, the Samba.  Or, if you’re still feeling shy, the Copacabana’s concierge can arrange a front row seat and lesson at Salgueiro Samba School.
