Probably the best way to spend a weekend out of the big city but still close to Sao Paulo (1.3 hour drive). We agreed with all previous compliments regarding the excellency of this small resort. It is at par with it's "big sister" Unique Hotel, and indeed the cordial staff and excellent restaurant and spa service made us feel at peace with the beautiful environment. You are surrounded by nature at every corner and invited to explore all it has to offer. The story behind its construction is beautiful and from the moment you arrive you are immersed in colors, smells, sounds and textures that will clear your mind.
We stayed in one of the amazing Contemporary Village Cottages. Amazing is the right word: it was our little home inside the compound and the amenities are just perfect, including an iPad to plan your stay. Room service was impeccable.
We do recommend upgrading to a Contemporary Cottage for an enhanced stay, in comparison to the smaller and less private Mediterranean Village Cottages.
Food is prepared with locally grown ingredients whenever possible, although the menu is not sophisticated. The entire staff is dedicated to make your stay a memorable one. We have experienced this level of cordiality and attention to detail in only a few places worldwide - the ones we truly cherish, and Unique Garden has made it to that list.
Thank you for an amazing weekend - we will definitely return.
Tip: the resort is pet friendly (our dog had a great time) and children are only allowed on school holiday months (Dec-Jan, and July in Brazil) and on the second weekend of every month.
We went to Unique to celebrate and the hotel crew did everything to make our weekend perfect, from the very first moment until our departure. The room, the food, the spa, the place, the people.
Excellent hotel, relaxing located in Mairiporã, easy accessible from the Fernão Dias road. With plenty of amenities (swimming pool, fitness room, massage, golf camp and tennis court), in the middle of tropical vegetation, bird songs and wild animals. There are only 27 rooms, for a very personal assistence. The staff is very well trained and helpful. The menu by chef Daniel Aquino is mostly on organic products collected in the hotel's garden. Worth every penny to stay in such a Unique paradise.
