|Rendering of Rosewood Sao Paulo's courtyard|
Situated in the center of Sao Paulo, the hotel will be housed in a historic, landmark building which was formerly a maternity hospital.
Rosewood Sao Paulo will lie at the heart of Cidade Matarazzo, a complex of elegant buildings dating back to the early 20th century, which will be transformed into a stylish development with private residences, high-end stores and entertainment venues.
The site is being developed by entrepreneur Alexandre Allard, who previously helped to bring about the renaissance of the House of Balmain. Rosewood Sao Paulo will have 151 guestrooms and 114 owners’ suites, which will be situated within a vertical park. Two restaurants, including one located on a veranda overlooking the lush hotel gardens, will be complemented by a bar and a caviar lounge. Recreational facilities will include two swimming pools, with one rooftop pool and the other set amongst the landscaped grounds, and a large spa with six treatment rooms and a fitness area. Hotel guests will also be able to access an adjoining music studio, screening room and luxury retail stores within the development.
The property will offer event and meeting spaces totaling 100,000 square feet. For special occasions, a listed wedding chapel stands in the grounds of Rosewood Sao Paulo. The chapel will retain the original architecture with a new stained glass window which has been specially commissioned.
