Surrounded by a sea of trees and historic mansions of São Paulo, sits the hotel Unique. Best known for its bold design and stunning views of the city, this boutique hotel skilfully combines modernity, elegance, and comfort.

The half-moon-shaped building with its brownish-green copper facade – masterfully designed by architect Ruy Oh-take – has become a reference in modern architecture and originality. Dramatic tall doors invite guests into what feels like the bilge of an immense ark, where staff flaunting Alexandre Herchcovitch couture await with glasses of Veuve Clicquot and friendly smiles.

Tones of beige, off-white, and burnt umber give rooms a clean feel, while flawless teak floors and huge round windows imbue the place with warmth and natural light. Following the curve of the building, the end rooms at each side have floors that gently curve into walls; one more of its many successful details.

On the top floor, hotel guests and visitors can enjoy a magnificent 360? view of São Paulo; that is, if they are able to take their eyes off the surprising, crimson swimming pool, which boasts its own underwater sound system and illumination.

Ibirapuera Park

If the chaos of the city becomes too intense, visit the beautiful Ibirapuera Park, only blocks away from the Unique. São Paulo’s most famous urban park features, besides its many trails, bike paths and waterways, a planetarium worth visiting. Shaped like a flying saucer it was the first planetarium built in the southern hemisphere. In the dome, a special projector displays images of São Paulo’s sky from dusk to dawn, while an astronomer explains the most famous stars and constellations, as well as the movements of the Earth and other planets.
