All rooms benefit from air conditioning, a well-stocked mini bar, Nespresso coffee machine and complimentary Wi-Fi. Bathrooms boast both tubs and rain showers, premium Granado toiletries and robes. The addition of Brazilian flip flops in each room is a thoughtful touch! Room Tip – Some rooms have ocean views while others overlook the lagoon. Be sure to state your preference!
Breakfast and lunch are served at Cantô Gastrô e Lounge, a traditional Brazilian restaurant that also provides a lively lounge in the evenings with bossa nova music, an impressive selection of Caipirinha cocktails and an array of tempting sharing plates. Guests can also dine at Tano Cucina Italiana – an Italian trattoria where the chefs prepare fresh pasta dishes in full view thanks to the open kitchen – or at Shiso, a contemporary Japanese restaurant where you can enjoy sushi, sashimi and yakitori dishes as well as explore the extensive sake menu.
Pool and Activities
In addition to the luxury of stepping right out onto the clean white sands of the most beautiful beach in Rio direct from the hotel doors, the Grand Hyatt Rio also boasts a sleek and elegant pool area where you can relax on a sun lounger and while away an afternoon. You can also take advantage of a 24 hour fitness centre, enjoy a spot of pampering at the Atiaia Spa or take a yoga class. Outside the hotel itself, there is great shopping and nightlife in Barra da Tijuca and it’s also close to the Olympic Park.
