W is heading to Brazil. W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, Inc., today announced the signing of the brand’s first hotel in Brazil. Slated to open in 2021, W São Paulo will add a new beat to the heart of Brazil’s most populous metropolis. With buzzing spots to grab handcrafted cocktails, decadent bites and take in rooftop views, W São Paulo is setting a brand new scene in SP. The hotel is slated to join this year’s exciting lineup of W openings in the region including W Panama (open as of February 2018) and W Costa Rica (opening in late 2018). Owned by HBR Realty, W São Paulo will be more than a first for W as Marriott International’s first luxury hotel in the country.
Designed by Nini Andrade Silva and the W brand’s renowned design team, W São Paulo will feature 179 luxe guestrooms, including two WOW Suites and one Extreme WOW Suite (the brand’s take on the Presidential Suite), as well as two feature restaurants including rooftop dining with sweeping views of the city and a signature Living Room (lobby) bar. W São Paulo will also welcome guests to fuel their stays with a state-of-the-art FIT center and expansive WET Deck (pool). Ultra-modern event facilities will take meeting and social gatherings to the next level with approximately 1,500 square meters of meeting space.
São Paolo is a busy metropolis where striking modernist architecture is set against a vibrant tropical landscape. The aesthetic of this unique property will juxtapose the modernist traditions of the great Brazilian architects with its dreamy, tropical landscape. From the lushly planted ground floor level with gardens and meandering paths to an iconic rooftop with an infinity edge pool, design details will honor the local culture and vibrant people of Brazil.
Situated in the popular Vila Olímpia business district in São Paulo, the property will be just two blocks away from JK Iguatemi, one of the city’s leading upscale shopping areas with numerous luxe shops and happening dining venues. W São Paulo will be surrounded by a mix of high-end residential towers and a broad range of nightlife and entertainment. The hotel will be approximately five kilometers from the Congonhas Airport and 25 kilometers from Guarulhos International Airport.
