Highlights of a stay at Hotel Unique
The ultimate luxury experience
Sip a cocktail from the deck chair of the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, Skye, while enjoying the breathtaking view of Ibirapuera Park and the São Paulo skyline. And enjoy the aesthetic effects of the red-tiled pool while listening to chill out music spun by top DJs every night.
The kitchen at the Unique Hotel reflects the cosmopolitan diversity of São Paulo, recalling the diverse immigrants from all parts of the world who found refuge in the city. Chef Emmanuel Bassoleil creatively jumps among Italian, French, Japanese and Brazilian recipes, and one of his signature dishes is a Brazilian-style risotto with beans, dried beef, coalho cheese, kale, farofa (toasted manioc flour), banana, cashew nuts and fried quail egg.
A unique detail
The hotel has been featured on the list of São Paulo’s architectural icons since its inauguration in 2002, with the building appearing to be suspended in air. The structure’s curves are a signature design of architect Ruy Ohtake, with large windows shaped like hatchways that guarantee nearly unbroken, picture-perfect views of the city.
An unforgettable moment
Get to know the city by bike on a tour led by a personal biker who will help you pedal safely through historic downtown and well-known parks, past museums and around the Vila Madalena neighborhood, known for its lively bars, designer stores and artist studios. The U-Bike project is the result of a partnership among the Unique Hotel, NGOs and the São Paulo City Government.
