EXPERIENCE HOTEL
We travel to find the unique. To find the true experiences, the essence of the place. We dont want conformity, we want specificity, we want experiences.  The hotel of tomorrow is the Experience hotel. The concept Hotel.

The Experience Hotel.

APRAZIVEL HOTEL
Hotel Aprazivel – the hotel of choice for the city of tomorrow. A redefinition of the urban resort. Secluded, yet with immediate proximity to the city centre and the new vibrant parts of the city.

The hotel Aprazivel is a landscape experience. All buildings and rooms are defined by their unique relationship to and integration of and in the landscape. Each room is characterized by its unique relation to the landscape, a garden, a patio, a view or a lavish terrace. A room in the garden. A garden in your room.

Hotel Aprazivel is a collection of unique pieces of architectures and unique experiences in the landscape. Uniquely Brazilian. Diverse and rich in expression and architecture. Enjoying heritage while embracing the future.

It is not a hotel with a garden; It’s a Botanical garden for you to live in.

We are providing a SPOT in the garden rather than a room in a hotel. “It is not a room, it is a SPOT“
