67. Botanique Hotel & Spa, Campos do Jordão, Brazil
Ranked #67 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
“An admirable dedication to home-grown materials.” Juliet Kinsman
Botanique takes the whole ‘concept hotel’ notion up a notch (or three). The hotel melds the best of boutique with the precision of five-star (though there’s nothing as démodé as a front desk here – a personal curator caters to every need).
High in the Mantiqueira Mountains about 400 kilometres from São Paolo, it’s exclusive and eco-savvy – massive reclaimed timber beams and slabs of natural stone backdrop bespoke furnishings and original art.
You’re surrounded by space, yet coddled with comfort. The spa is alpha-plus, based on Afro-Brazilian and Native Indian biodiversity.
Feast on the contemporary Brazilian farm-to-fork cuisine, with artisanal local wines and a stellar cigar selection.
Size 11 villas and six suites
