Unique Hotel: in Brazil, a place where design and grandiose go hand in hand

Named best hotel in South America by the "Condé Nast traveler" travel guide, the Unique hotel lives up to its name. Located in Sao Paulo, the establishment imagined by the renowned Brazilian brutalist architect Ruy Ohtake is remarkable. This monumental concrete vessel houses a comfortable and contemporary design set up by João Armentano. From top-of-the-range services to the sublime rooftop pool, everything is thought of here perfectly. Visit this dream Brazilian hotel in pictures.

Flamboyant and avant-garde design


Unique Hotel From the entrance, the tone is set. Large volumes welcome the traveler and the avant-garde furniture, imagined by the interior designer João Armentano surprises. We love this mixture of extreme modernity and offbeat touches, like the enveloping black and blood red armchairs, true works of art.

Rooms like cabins


Unique Hotel In the classic rooms, with elegant comfort, you are quickly struck by the magical view of the Ibirapuera park that you can see from the round window. A luxurious and modernist cabin, which promises travelers an exquisite stay.

Ground lines game


Unique Hotel In the rooms, the floor follows the shapes of the building and plays with perspectives. The parquet runs to the ceiling, in a perfect play of lines and curves. We love this deep originality in the layout, which is never overloaded and where every detail is sublimated, like this fixed window that separates the bathroom while extending the lines.

A suite in which design and architecture merge


Unique Hotel In the Broadway suite, the favorite of architect Ruy Ohtake, the space is completely open-plan to enhance the volumes. The "infinite" floor is particularly marked and the designer furniture exceptional. Love at first sight for the white desk, with minimalist lines, which seems poised on this curved floor so intriguing.

The design lounge of the presidential suite


Unique Hotel The huge presidential suite has a spacious lounge with delicious decoration. We love this office armchair imagined by João Armentano. An absolute faultless.

Suite with terrace and jaccuzi


Unique Hotel The Presidential Suite also has its own terrace and a built-in jacuzzi. Both protected and open to the city, this welcoming space with its teak parquet floor offers a 180 ° view of Sao Paulo. Pure luxury.

Skye: the chic and trendy restaurant of the hotel


Unique Hotel In the Skye restaurant, with a view of the Ibirapuera park and the city, you can enjoy Brazilian and European dishes prepared by French chef Emmanuel Bassoleil. Here, trendy Brazilians are in a hurry to come and taste high-flying fusion cuisine.

A rooftop pool


Unique Hotel On the terrace of the bar-restaurant, we discover a magical place. On the top floor, on the roof, stands a magnificent and astonishing red swimming pool. Ultra trendy, the place quickly became a "place to be" which is always full, and we understand why!

An architectural sports hall


Unique Hotel In the basement of the hotel, we discover an absolutely amazing gym. A glass walkway with fitness equipment overlooks an indoor swimming pool, drawn in length, when a slide is inserted in the middle of two staircases with cut lines. An architectural feat that will convince even the less athletic to go for a ride. More info: Unique Hotel
