Welcome to Copacabana, one of the tropical paradises of the Western imagination and the dream destination for all Americans and Europeans. Pestana Rio Atlântica, a hotel with all the services you could wish, is right in the middle of the mythical Avenida Atlântica, where the Carnival parades take place and where over two million people celebrate the New Year in a beach covered with flowers and in white. With very fast access to Galeão International Airport and just a few minutes away from the holy trinity of all first trips to Rio - Corcovado, Pão de Açúcar and Calçadão - this is the best starting point to have fun or work in the city.
If you think you are coming to work and partying is not for you, forget about it. Everyone is welcome and the good atmosphere and charm we breathe in the entire hotel are truly contagious. Even if you don't have time to do anything, go for coffee or a drink on Deck after dinner and you will see how the animation of streets is contagious. But first, your room. When you enter Pestana Rio Atlântica there is always someone to escort you and explain you what to do next. Besides the reception, there are concierge and guest relations services to help you organize your entire stay.
Actually, if you request it when you are booking, the front desk staff will send you a transfer to bring you to the hotel with all the comfort. This is not a standard service, but the tranquility is worth the investment.
When you go up to your room, the surprises begin. The hotel is very modern, urban and sophisticated, and the light and bright atmosphere conveys that exactly. Whether you are staying with the sea front view, side view or even the view of the city, you will not escape from the essence of Rio. Here you will find the most elegant buildings, the palm trees and the trees that punctuate the avenues and the beach and sea that dominate the surrounding area. The rooms are very comfortable and always have a large work surface, for those who need it. The air conditioning and wi-fi are always available and, whenever you arrive, the room service arrives too.
If you follow these simple rules, you have a lot to discover: walk through the Arpoador, visit the famous sands where Jobim saw the girl from Ipanema walking, and going straight ahead to the exclusive area of Leblon ensures that you have a lot to see, learn and enjoy. The coast is beautiful and the sea permanently invites you to take a refreshing dip. An easy rule to remember is that if you follow the sea, you will always find the most beautiful and wanted places of Rio. Two blocks inside, at the three neighborhoods that you will walk to, you'll find the shopping avenues. From the most sophisticated Ataúlfo de Paiva, to Visconde de Pirajá, and the very popular Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, it has banks, pharmacies, clothing stores, juice houses and even shopping malls. In Leblon, be sure to visit Livraria da Travessa, an amazing space that gathers books, records and a restaurant together.
Pestana´s Tip: Pestana Rio Atlantica and its Deck bar became one of the city references when it comes to parties and large events.
