Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Emiliano Rio is located on the southern tip of Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Copacabana Beach.

Rooms at Emiliano Rio

The contemporary architecture of the rooms and suites affords plenty of natural daylight via the large windows which overlook the South Atlantic or the hotel’s courtyard. Décor is chic and stylish with a nod to the 1950s – natural wood and woven fabrics create a relaxed ambience and the marble bathrooms feature a bath and shower. The suites add balconies, the perfect spot for sipping caipirinhas as the sun goes down.

Food & Drink

Savour the fresh flavours of organic ingredients creatively put together by renowned French chef Damien Motecer and his team at the Emile Restaurant, where a living tropical wall brings the outside in. Signature dishes include ‘O Primerio Encontro’, a delicious lobster and ginger bisque pasta. Light bites are served at the Emiliano rooftop restaurant, while the Emile bar in the lobby is the place to head for expertly-crafted cocktails.


Spa Santapele will rebalance your energy through the three pillars of detoxification, energisation and relaxation. Your senses will be revitalised with the variety of treatments on offer including shiatsu, reflexology and aromatic massages. The hotel also offers a small yet well-equipped gym. Up on the rooftop, a tropical refuge awaits, with sun loungers lining the infinity pool and panoramic views of the beach scenes below.

Activities at Emiliano Rio

With captivating sights around every corner, you’ll never be short of things to do in Rio. Spend time exploring the magnificent Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain and Santa Teresa’s bohemian district before unwinding on Copacabana’s sun-kissed shores.
