From the moment you arrive, it is quite clear, given the stunning nautically inspired architecture, Hotel Unique is beyond compare. This sense of distinction, of approaching the hotel experience in a novel way, continues inside with suites featuring flooring that curves up and transforms into a wall, along with a pool that boasts a unique water slide. As you sample eclectic dishes at the rooftop restaurant and bar, browse art and design books in the library, and work out with a personal trainer at the fitness center, it becomes clear why Condé Nast Traveler named this urban sanctuary the Best Hotel in South America. Hotel Unique more than lives up to its name.

With a clean, modern design, Hotel Unique’s 94 guestrooms and suites offer stylish, sophisticated living quarters for your stay in São Paulo. Every detail, from the creative lighting fixtures and the Trussardi 300-thread-count bed sheets to the bathrooms featuring see-through glass partitions, has been carefully considered to deliver an inimitable experience. Additional novel aspects include circular windows and, in each of the suites, the hotel’s signature “infinite” flooring, where the wooden floor seamlessly curves up into the wall.
