In the centre of the buzzing Sao Paulo lie the Tivolo Mofarrej hotel, a stunning 5* hotel member of Leading Hotels of the World. The arrival at the hotel is rather grand with the vegetations, the beautiful lobby and the attentive staff.
I stayed 3 nights in one of the Collection Room on the 15th floor
giving me an amazing view over Sao Paulo ! The room measured around 30
sqm and compromised a king size bed, desk, windows from floor to
ceiling, a seating area, Nespresso machine, WIFI (which is not
complimentary), … and …. flip flops at turndown – how fab and so
I had enough storage for my stay and the bathroom was equipped with a
rain shower – bathrobes and plenty of towels, the toiletries were very
pleasant which was an added value.
Breakfast at the Tivoli Sao Paulo is a real treat ! The range of
pastries, fresh fruits, hot dishes were amazing, to a point I could not
wait for the morning to get back to the restaurant to have breakfast all
over again !
The team was really helpful and accommodating during my stay. I slept
really well in my huge bed, the room was really quiet for such a big
building. The only little problem was the time it took to get a
lift…with so many floors it was understandable though !
To recover from the difficult journey via BA i had, I decided to book myself in the evening of my arrival at the Elements Spa by Banyan Tree.
There are not enough words for me to explain how amazing the experience
was. The spa is open until 10pm so I was able to book a late
appointment at 8pm which I thought was brilliant for business travelers
The hotel has a small pool as well – not quiet ideal for leisure so I
will not recommend for a long leisurely stay but for a couple of hours
in the afternoon on arrival, it was perfect !
