Panoramic Hotel

about Panoramic Hotel, Iguassu

Originally built in the 1940’s by the same renowned architect know for building Llao Lao, the National Museum of Fine Arts and the National Bank of Argentina, Alejandro Bustillo. Due to the economic situation, the Panoramic Hotel was closed in the 80’s, to then be renovated to re-open in 2007, keeping many of its old features and preserving the original character, to become the luxurious hotel it is now.

Panoramic Hotel is named after the spectacular panoramas the hotel has over the meeting of Iguassu and Parana Rivers; where jungle meets the wild tropics and water displays of colour and light span over 275 waterfalls. After all that, what better to do in the evening than watch the sunset with a glass of champagne from the pool surrounded by tropical gardens…

Perched on a hill for an even better view, the hotel has all this, yet is just 5 minutes from down-town.
