Sao Paulo is a huge, extreme and disparate skyscraper filled megalopolis. This urban jungle with constant traffic jams and highways that converge above the hills might at first glance appear hostile, but a second look reveals a city bustling with life, andin addition to being a must stop for businessmen, also a city of art and culture.
Founded by Jesuits in 1554, it has become the fourth largest metropolis in the world and the economic pulse of Brazil and Latin America. Fascinating and gigantic, the city is home to the largest Japanese community outside of Japan, three million people of Italian descent and important Jewish, Syrian and Lebanese communities.
This immense city of unbridled urbanism possesses neighborhoods as different as the old city with its architecture resembling that of Buenos Aires, industrial quarters with 2,578 skyscrapers, the Paraisopolis favela and trendy residential areas in the west with parks containing works by Oscar Niemeyer.
For those in search of peace and quiet, the Brazilian countryside isn’t very far away by helicopter, the means of transport used by politicians and wealthy local inhabitants to avoid the hyperactivity of the city.
Located in the heart of the Serra da Cantareira, far from the traffic and noise of Sao Paulo, theUnique Garden Hotel & Spa is a 4 stars sanctuary dedicated to nature and wellness. Thirty hectares of gardens, exotic greenhouses and organic grown vegetables surround a variety of structures including ten ultra design wood and stone villas created by the renowned Brazilian architect Ruy Ohtake.
Aligned on a hill, these contemporary villas offer guests an uninterrupted view of the entire resort. In addition to the 14 apartments in the Mediterranean Villa, the Flower Lodge and the Crystal Chalet, the Unique Garden Hotel & Spa also offers a breathtaking lodge-suite with jacuzzi, solarium and Ofuro baths.
In this temple of well-being with its soothing atmosphere, the incomparable spa proposes 80 different physical and beauty care treatments inspired by Brazilian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, European, North American and Mayan cultures.
The Unique Garden Hotel & Spa’s gastronomy is closely linked to the environment with the use of organic fruits and vegetables grown in the park’s greenhouses withwhich chef Daniel Aquino has developed a refined menu inspired by Mediterranean cuisine.
An attentive and cheerful staff, organic fruit and vegetables grown on the spot, a spa famous throughout the country, a natural spring rich in silicon and zinc and Eden like surroundings make the hotel the ideal spot for a weekend surrounded by greenery.
