An elegant, small first class hotel in central Sao Paulo, offering a relaxing stay.

You’ll be staying in the heart of São Paulo, in the leafy, upmarket Jardins neighbourhood, which stands out for its choice of excellent restaurants and designer boutiques. This relatively small, smart first-class hotel, catering for business as well as leisure travellers, is close to the main sky-scraper lined commercial thoroughfare Avenida Paulista but endeavours to create a little oasis of calm, with a profusion of plants, spa services, and a small indoor pool.  

The air-conditioned carpeted guest rooms and suites are contemporary in style, with individual pieces of artwork. The hotel reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the city, with both a Mediterranean restaurant and a menu of Japanese gastronomy.

What our clients say

  • All of it was memorable, the Hotel were the perfect choice and the guides were knowledgeable and very helpful. The Falls were breath-taking and listening to the falls and bird in the park in the morning was fantastic. Listening to the waves at Copacabana was great at night ad in the morning. They ensured we were checked in for our flights and willing to offer us guidance to ensure we have covered various experiences.

  • Iguacu Falls were spectacular Rio views as per postcards!!

    JM, Callander
  • Where to start? The World Cup match in Salvador, the old town of Salvador itself, swimming with wild dolphins in Praia de Pipa, watching monkeys play at breakfast, piranha fishing then feeding caimans in the Pantanal, playing football on Copacabana beach, seeing Christ the Redeemer for the first time, dancing in Rio Sanarium, all the Brazilian people we met who were so friendly. The best holiday we have ever been on.

  • Most memorable was the approach toward the Falls on impossibly built metal walkways you could not have imagined the spectacle laid out before you.  Our guide who sat on the prow of the boat and the atonishment as he leaped into the water distracting a Cayman and bringing it on board tightly held  The view from the top looking down on Rio from the location of the Redemmer.

    AC, Saffron walden
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Probably seeing river otters at Pousada do Rio Mutum but we really liked the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls too. 

    SS, Teddington
  • Highlight: Walking on the trails through the rainforest on Ilha Grande.
