Describing their vision as 'bold and evocative modern, an international luxury aesthetic rendered in Brazilian materials and infused with classic Paulistano flavour', the result is an art-filled hotel with pieces from Burle Marx, Francisco Brennand, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, among others.
The interiors are characterised by locally-sourced finishes that create a luxurious yet welcoming environment for both international travellers and local guests.
Leading the culinary team is Executive Chef Paolo Lavezzini, an Italian native who is responsible for bringing to life the Hotel’s signature restaurant concept. Neto (“grandson”) is inspired by the city’s large immigrant population, offering a Brazilian spin on traditional Italian cuisine in a space envisioned by internationally-renowned EDG.
Meeting planners and wedding couples will find 1,409 square metres (15,160 square feet) of flexible event space, also designed by EDG including a grand ballroom that can be divided into smaller function spaces, as well as seven additional rooms of varying sizes and two outdoor terraces.
The vibrant urban space will include enclosed and beautifully landscaped grounds, a BAMO-designed spa and fitness centre, and an ultra-modern indoor-outdoor pool.
