Palácio Tangará, São Paulo
Interior designers William Simonato and Patricicia Anastassiadis release plans for what is said to be São Paulo’s first true masterpiece hotel…
Sat among the vibrant, rich architecture in the city of Sãu Paulo Palácio Tangará will open its doors in the spring of 2017. Built in the surroundings of the highly regarded Burle Marx Park, whose gardens were designed by Roberto Burle Marx, the hotel will offer 141 spacious guestrooms – including 55 suites – all capturing beautiful views overlooking the park.
The interior design has been entrusted to leading Brazilian interior designers William Simonato and Patricia Anastassiadis who have created a truly bespoke design concept for each space. An acclaimed chef will drive the hotel’s dining experiences and there will be a signature restaurant, chef’s table, a bar, a wine cellar, a lobby and lounge bar, all with outdoor terraces. Additional facilities will comprise 11 function rooms, including a ballroom for up to 360 guests with terraces overlooking the park. The fitness centre and spa will have a private garden and there will be indoor and outdoor swimming pools as well as a kid’s club.
Philippe Perd, Chief Project Development Officer Oetker Collection, has spent the past year supporting the design process. Once completed, Palácio Tangará will be São Paulo’s first true Masterpiece hotel and a proud addition to the Collection.
Timo Gruenert, Chief Financial Officer Oetker Collection notes, “After our successful partnership in the Caribbean with Eden Rock – St Barths, the re-opening of The Lanesborough earlier this year and the prospect of an opening in New York, we are thrilled to launch a hotel in São Paulo, which is going to have it all: unique location, exceptional building, creative cuisine and the legendary Brazilian smile.”
Palácio Tangará is owned by an affiliate of a United States-based real estate investment management company. In the true spirit of the country, the Tangará name comes from the paradise Tanager of Amazonia, (Tangara Chilensis) a brilliantly multicolored songbird.
