"As the first Four Seasons in Brazil, our team is especially excited to introduce the customised experiences and personalised service for which the company is known around the world," says General Manager Michael Schmid. "Although many Brazilians who travel internationally are very familiar with the Four Seasons experience, the opportunity to offer something uniquely tailored to this city and connect with its citizens is important for us."
The all-new hotel is the vision of HKS Architects in partnership with Aflalo e Gasperini Arquitetos, with principle interiors including guest rooms, lobby lounge and public areas by San Francisco-based BAMO. Describing their vision as "bold and evocative modern, an international luxury aesthetic rendered in Brazilian materials and infused with classic Paulistano flavour," the result is an art-filled hotel with pieces from Burle Marx, Francisco Brennand, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, among others. The interiors are characterised by locally-sourced finishes that create a luxurious yet welcoming environment for both international travellers and local guests.
Leading the culinary team is Executive Chef Paolo Lavezzini, an Italian native who is responsible for bringing to life the Hotel's signature restaurant concept. Neto ("grandson") is inspired by the city's large immigrant population, offering a Brazilian spin on traditional Italian cuisine in a space envisioned by internationally-renowned EDG. Chef Lavezzini will also oversee menus for the Hotel's lobby botequimCaju SP, and in-room dining, as well as its catering operation.
Meeting planners and wedding couples will find 1,409 square metres (15,160 square feet) of flexible event space, also designed by EDG including a grand ballroom that can be divided into smaller function spaces, as well as seven additional rooms of varying sizes and two outdoor terraces.
The vibrant urban space will include enclosed and beautifully landscaped grounds, a BAMO-designed spa and fitness centre, and an ultra-modern indoor-outdoor pool.
