Rosewood São Paulo Scheduled to Open 2018
Rosewood announces its first property in South America with Rosewood São Paulo, scheduled to open in Brazil in 2018. Rosewood São Paulo will be located in a historic 1904 building that was formerly a maternity hospital and lies at the centre of Cidade Matarazzo, a complex of elegant, preserved buildings that were built in the early 20th century.
The site is being developed by French entrepreneur, Alexandre Allard, who previously helped to bring about the renaissance of the House of Balmain. Allard and Rosewood are collaborating on this project with leading international figures such as the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the designer Philippe Starck, as well as the renowned Brazilian artists Beatriz Milhazes and Saint-Clare Cemin.
Rosewood São Paulo will feature 151 guestrooms and 114 owners' suites, which will be situated within a vertical park created by Nouvel. 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 (one rooftop pool and one set amongst the landscaped grounds) and a large spa with six treatment rooms and fitness area. Hotel guests will also be able to access an adjoining music studio, a screening room and high-end retail stores within the development.
The property will offer a number of event and meeting spaces totaling 100,000 sq ft. For special occasions, a listed wedding chapel stands in the grounds of Rosewood São Paulo. The chapel will retain the original architecture with a new stained glass window which has been specially commissioned.
