Palácio Tangará, a property of the esteemed Oetker Collection, renowned for its globally acclaimed hotels. Situated in the lush surroundings of São Paulo’s Burle Marx Park, Palácio Tangará exemplifies enduring sophistication and opulence.

The grand mansion was the dream of Brazilian businessman Francisco Pignatari, designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer and landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx. Although the original mansion never came to fruition, the Oetker Collection revived Pignatari’s vision in 2017, transforming it into the hotel that stands today.

Encircled by lush tropical flora, the hotel’s uniquely designed outdoor pool and the rich biodiversity of the area, home to over 90 species of wild animals, provide an idyllic sanctuary for retreat.

The interior decor, a harmonious mix of classic and contemporary styles by Bick Simonato and Anastassiadis, creates an atmosphere of elegance that complements the natural splendour of its surroundings.

The 141 expansive rooms at Palácio Tangará, including 59 suites, offer a sanctuary of comfort and elegance with breath taking views of verdant parkland. The rooms feature custom-designed décor, modern accents, and nature-inspired materials. The expansive Brazilian marble bathrooms with double vanity units, separate glass showers, and bathtubs provide a spa-like experience for all guests.

The amenities at Palácio Tangará are unparalleled, offering guests the chance to savour Michelin-starred dishes at Tangará Jean-Georges, unwind in the Sisley spa, or enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools. The hotel also features a cutting-edge fitness centre, a kids’ club, and nine function rooms, including an elegant ballroom.

Opting to stay at Palácio Tangará means selecting an experience of unmatched sophistication. From residing in a living masterpiece to awakening with a monkey on your balcony, or savouring a traditional English high tea while gazing upon lush Amazonian greenery, this hotel provides a distinctive fusion of culture and luxury..

In a city that pulses with life, Palácio Tangará provides a peaceful enclave, inviting guests to pause and savour the finer things in life where the hustle and bustle of the city fades into the background and nature takes centre stage
