Overview

Decadent country house hotel—Brazil's own Downton Abbey—surrounded by a 26-acre park within the borders of São Paulo

The Lowdown

It took landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx 40 years to lay out this 26-acre São Paulo estate and its collection of native Atlantic-forest species and rolling greens, and it’s an oasis in every way. The building is a testament to restrained taste; never flashy, the emphasis is instead on pale yellows and grays and vintage furniture, with a few bursts of brighter colors inspired by the exotic birds in the surrounding forest. Rooms have plenty of natural light, aided by balconies, and lots of space to stretch out in, but you’ll likely spend more time in a deckchair by the outdoor pool (there’s another one indoors) or feasting on locally flavored sea bass ceviche with coconut, lime, and chili tapioca at Tangará Jean-Georges—Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s only restaurant on the continent. Don’t forget to ask the sommelier to pair your meal with some of Brazil’s up-and-coming sparkling wines.

In the Area

Palácio Tangará’s appeal is that it’s in the city but feels like a nature retreat, so guests who’ve chosen to stay here are likely to spend more time lounging by the pool or strolling around the forest than wandering around the busy streets and skyscrapers of São Paulo. It’s about a 30-minute walk to Chalezinho from the hotel; this intimate fondue restaurant has an Alpine-inspired look and makes for a romantic dinner spot. A 7-minute drive brings you to the Casa de Vidro (the Glass House), an exercise in modernist design by the pioneering architect Lina Bo Bardi; it’s still bordered by some of the lush greenery that once surrounded it. If you want to explore the city, the hotel offers car service and the concierge can help plan your urban itinerary.

the only true luxury hotel in sao paulo
Sumeetbr

having stayed at the Unique, Fasano and Emiliano, among other hotels in Sao Paulo, i can safely say that Palcio Tangara is by far the only true luxury hotel in every sense of the word..the structure is outstanding..the rooms are large, very well laid out, superbly furnished and outstandingly serviced..the lobby and common areas with works of art spread around are great..the outdoor pool area is a little small compared to the rest of the hotel..the indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, a great place to hang out..the location is inconvenient as it is far from the central part of town..the next door parque great for walks..our second stay and many more to come..

Superb- an Unique Urban Oasis with the best service so far @Brazil

Service, Rooms, Infrastructure, Gastronomy. Oetker brings to Sao Paulo the finest hotel in the city and by far one of the best @ latam.
It´s location is perfect to escape from traffic and actually very convenient, you can even avoid more traffic if you stay at Tangará, rather than other hotels of Morumbi region. Don’t be afraid about it´s location and getting into Sao Paulo financial, industrial and business sectors. Tangará could be even more suitable for faster transfers, and you’ll be pampered in one of the most superb high - end urban oasis properties.
Rates: as well, even more affordable than other options that are “better located” for business purposes, and that are definitely lower in category.
Tangará, it´s a most of Sao Paulo. Highly recommended for the finest and most exquisite clientele, even for locals it´s a most.
As a venue for events and weddings, this is the TOP pick of the city.
The experience starts in the way to get into the hotel, the gardens and parks that surround it´s entrance can let you know you are arriving at a magnifico place.
All the personnel and staff, sublime service!.
Gastronomy: Once again a most of Sao Paulo, even more considering that the city offers very high quality, their cuisine it´s superb.
