The Arena Copacabana is the Arena brand’s flagship hotel and as a relative newcomer to Rio, it has been a welcome addition to the city's hotel scene. Guests can expect first-rate service, exceptional comfort, and excellent value during a stay here, but what really separates the Arena Copacabana from similar standard hotels is its fresh design and innovative, environmentally friendly approach.
This hotel offers a variety of room options, including some rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto Copacabana Beach. All rooms are warmly furnished and have flat-screen televisions, Wi-Fi, digital safes, soundproof windows which can be opened, and central air conditioning. In addition to these features, each room has been designed in a sustainable way with the use of green technology and a focus on conservation. Through the use of eco-friendly initiatives, the hotel is doing its part in energy and water conservation, recycling, reducing waste, and increasing biodiversity.
The Arena Copacabana enjoys a central location on the beach in the lively heart of Rio, which is full of bars and restaurants should you wish to eat out. Should you wish to venture further afield, the hotel is located close to metro stations, allowing you to head into the downtown area easily or to travel in the opposite direction to the chic districts of Ipanema and Leblon, which are home to even more restaurants and bars. Here, you'll find the atmosphere a bit more low-key than Copacabana.
Food and Drink
Every morning you can watch the city come to life over breakfast from the hotel’s beachfront restaurant, Fennel. It’s worth returning for lunch and dinner as well to try the international cuisine. Before or after dinner, we recommend heading up the pool bar for the uninterrupted views and cold refreshing drinks.
We think that the rooftop pool is a great place to spend downtime with the family.
Facilities and Activities
The Arena Copacabana has several leisure facilities including an outdoor pool, a steam room, and a gym.
A modern hotel with excellent facilities. The large sundeck area is particularly appealing after tramping the city, when you may just want to relax and enjoy the views.
