Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo at Nações Unidas, the first of its kind in Brazil, has opened for reservations and confirmed guest arrivals beginning 15 October 2018.
Located amid the leafy green spaces along the Pinheiros River in the south of Sao Paulo, the all-new 29-storey tower will include 258 rooms and 84 Four Seasons Private Residences designed by Studio Arthur Casas, as well as restaurants, meeting rooms, a spa and other facilities.
The hotel’s address on Avenida Nações Unidas (United Nations Avenue) is within corporate offices, shopping and entertainment centres, and some of South America’s best medical facilities. In addition, the domestic Congonhas-São Paulo Airport is just 20 minutes away, and São Paulo International Airport is about one hour by car.
The all-new hotel was built by HKS Architects in partnership with Aflalo e Gasperini Arquitetos. Its interiors, including the guest rooms, lobby lounge and public areas, were designed by San Francisco-based BAMO. The interiors are characterised by locally-sourced finishes that create a “luxurious yet welcoming environment” for both international travellers and local guests.
“Something uniquely tailored to this city”
The hotel’s general manager, Michael Schmid, commented: “As the first Four Seasons in Brazil, our team is especially excited to introduce the customised experiences and personalised service for which the company is known around the world. Although many Brazilians who travel internationally are very familiar with the Four Seasons experience, the opportunity to offer something uniquely tailored to this city and connect with its citizens is important for us.”
Leading the culinary team is the executive chef Paolo Lavezzini, an Italian native who is responsible for Neto, which offers a Brazilian spin on traditional Italian cuisine. Chef Lavezzini will also oversee menus for the hotel’s lobby and in-room dining, as well as its catering operations.
For MICE, the hotel offers a 1,409 square metre flexible event space, 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.
Four Seasons Hotel São Paulo at Nações Unidas joins sister properties in Bogota, Buenos Aires and Costa Rica as part of the company’s growing Central and South American portfolio.
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts currently has more than 50 projects in the pipeline.
