Four Seasons to open urban spa resort in Sao Paolo
POSTED 22 Nov 2017 . BY Tom Walker
Luxury operator Four Seasons has announced plans to open its first property in Brazil in 2018.

Located in Sao Paolo, the 250-bedroom hotel will be marketed as an urban retreat and is located in the Parque da Cidade – a large mixed-use complex currently under development in the city.

The 29-storey hotel’s design will draw inspiration from Brazil's architecture and design traditions and will also house 84 Four Seasons Private Residences.

The hotel has been designed by HKS Architects, in partnership with Aflalo e Gasperini Arquitetos, with interior designers EDG creating the public spaces and Studio Arthur Casas responsible for guest accommodations.

At the heart of the hotel will be an opulent day spa, designed by San Francisco-based BAMO. Featuring five treatment rooms, the spa’s USP will be a unique indoor-outdoor swimming pool offering views over the city.

While exact details are to be confirmed, the spa will offer guests a treatment menu mixing local healing traditions with established brands. Blu Spas provided consulting services for the spa.

The opening is part of Four Seasons’ strategy to strengthen its presence in South America. Earlier this month, the group unveiled three new private jet itineraries for 2019. Among the new journeys is “Latin Escape”, a 16-day trip exploring the natural and cultural offerings of Central and South America.

The Four Seasons Private Jet is a custom-designed aircraft and guests will be able to opt into a wide range of experiences in each destination and tailor their trip to their interests – from “discovering authentic flavours to connecting with local cultures”.

Four Seasons currently operates three properties in the Central and South America – in Bogota, Colombia; Buenos Aires, Argentina and Costa Rica.
