The opening of Four Seasons Hotel and Residences São Paulo at Nações Unidas marks the debut of the Four Seasons brand in Brazil.
The 258-room Hotel is located amid the leafy green spaces along the Pinheiros river in southern Sao Paulo. Hotel guests, residents and locals can now enjoy a new restaurant and a lounge, an oasis-like spa, and a variety of event spaces that can accommodate anything from a private board meeting to multi-room conferences, social galas and weddings for up to 400 attendees. The landmark building by HKS Architects in partnership with Aflalo e Gasperini Arquitetos will also be a place to call home with 84 Four Seasons Private Residences.
Guests entering the new Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo will be immersed in a gallery-like domed space that showcases contemporary works by local artists including a trio of sculptures by Francisco Brennand, a bold and striking painting by Burle Marx, and additional furnishings and works by Tora Brasil and other local designers and artists. A truly stunning spiral staircase floats its way up to the ballroom against a shimmering wall that captures light from both the outdoors and the space’s dramatic chandeliers.
The visual wonders continue as guests reach the Hotel’s cleverly designed pool, which appears to extend out over the surrounding treetops, allowing guests to swim through to the outdoors, or stay within. The fitness centre also offers inspiring skyline views across the treetops just outside. Spa Director Betina Weber and her team of skilled therapists at the Spa offer the latest in modern treatments with a local twist, including bespoke treatments such as the Sacred Feminine ritual, and the Olfactive Journey inspired by ancient aromatic healing therapies.
San Francisco-based BAMO has created guest rooms that welcome guests as though into a private home, with a gracious palette of sensuous lines and touchable textures, accented by pops of vibrant colour. Area rugs on polished wood floors create intimate spaces where business travellers can focus on work, and those at leisure can lean back, put their feet up and relax. Of special interest are the Hotel’s One Bedroom Corner Suites with panoramic views, and the incredible Presidential Suite on the 14th floor, which is ideal for families or those who plan to entertain while staying at Four Seasons.
In addition to the Hotel’s 1,409 square metres (15,160 square feet) of meetings and events spaces that are available for booking now – not to mention its team of expert event planners whose attention to detail is surpassed only by their creativity – Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo will debut an exclusive Global Traveller Relaxation Lounge in 2019. Here, business travellers booking select room categories will find an array of privileges including dedicated concierge, access to a private boardroom, complimentary refreshments throughout the day, and more.
