Just a two-hour drive from the bright lights of Rio de Janeiro, there is an oasis of calm awaiting guests at the Insólito Boutique Hotel. Nestled in a rocky hillside, with stunning views of Ferradura Beach, the solar-heated Insólito blends perfectly into its natural surroundings thanks to the skills of celebrated architect Otavio Raja Gabaglia. The hotel’s twenty rooms are full of arts and crafts from famous and local artisans, and socially responsible companies. Most rooms have a veranda with a whirlpool and panoramic ocean views, while the suites also come with a lounge and bar where guests can mix their own cachaça drinks. The hotel’s two speedboats can access over twenty neighboring beaches on the peninsula. And when guests want to mingle, they can enjoy drinks in the pool bar, or dine at the 3000-square-meter beach lounge, which has become “the place to be” for locals and guests alike.
Located in the well-heeled residential area of Jardins in São Paulo, Hotel Unique is a must for savvy architecture fans and well-traveled urbanites alike. The spacey, green-weathered copper that adorns the facade stretches across the building’s unusual shape, a massive inverted arch with circular windows like over-sized portholes. In guestrooms, unusual accessories from around the globe add to the ultra-cool feel, which is accented by the staff’s coolly impeccable service. Upstairs, what is perhaps São Paulo’s finest rooftop terrace offers amazing views of the city: that is, if guests can take their eyes off the fascinating crimson swimming pool that runs along its edge.
