The only hotel in this list that is not located in the Jardins district, the Palácio Tangará is in the middle of the untouched green of Burle Marx Park, making it a breath of fresh air among the bustle of São Paulo.

The incredible building the hotel now occupies has its own fascinating history: a passionate millionaire commissioned the project from renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer for what would have been his second wife's residence. The wedding did not happen, so he offered the gift to his third wife (this one a princess), who as a matter of principle, would not accept to live in a house that was not built for her. The project did not go ahead, the construction was sold and today we have the incredible Tangará.

Member of Oetker Collection, the hotel's objective is to offer a complete experience for each guest where they do not need to leave the hotel for anything: nature, luxury, comfort and gastronomy, translated into the 1 Michelin star rated, Tangará Jean-Georges restaurant.
