“Hidden Gem in Brazilian Wine Country”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

If you have never travelled the least travelled road to Brazil this is the destination to give it a start: Brazilian Wine Country. Not known by everybody certainly few people know about it in the USA. We found this hidden gem Spa/Hotel on one of our trips to Brazil and everything is just fine quality: the bedrooms, the bedlinen, the decor, the food, the wine and the service, the little food basket in your bedroom upon arrival. It was all about the small details that made our stay memorable.My best treat was a massage session at the Spa in which they used a wine based cream which really moistures as it promises. My skin looked good and soft for several days. I strongly recommend it. The landscape is also fabulous as the hotel sits on top of a hill. Right across the road from it there is a winery where you can go wine tasting. Also, along the road there are several small wineries that are worth trying.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are good because of the half moon shape of the hotel on top of a hill. Everywhere...

During the economic boom of last years, Brazil has seen a couple of trendy and boutique hotels to appear. This is completely different from this category, because it really has what makes a good hotel: Service.
The level of service is comparable to the world-class 5 star hotels, once you always have somebody close to help you, yet not being noted their presence.
They quickly identify your travel profile and propose activities, tours etc... According to your preference.
There are fresh flowers all over, and you fell home.
A glass of "espumante" at check in.
It looks that the hotel is run by ones that understand the hospitality business.

The cons:
The room is noting spectacular
There were some flies due to grapes sugar in the region

This is an amazing hotel in the middle of the Brazilian wine country! Being located in the Vale dos Vinhedos region means that you don't have to drive far to experience some of the best wineries in Brazil (for starters Miolo is right across the street).

You can’t miss this hotel as it sits high on a hill with a flowing brick driveway that sits between two vineyards. With great expectations we were very impressed with the high ceilings and chandeliers in the lobby as well as the attentive staff who spoke both Portuguese and English.

The rooms are spacious and clean with beds that are amazingly comfortable. The vineyard view from our room and the two restaurants reminded us very much of Europe. You can watch the fog hover over the vineyard valley in the morning and watch the sun set over the vineyard hills at night.

We highly recommend this property but suggest that you try to arrange your spa appointment when you make your reservations. Being that this is a Caudalie Vino Therapie spa from Paris it is quite popular with just about everyone.

We stayed for three nights at this lovely hotel set on a hill-top in the middle of the wine district. Opened in 2007, everything about the hotel is of course new and fresh. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. We slept like babies in a most comfortable double-bed and woke up to spectacular views of the Miolo vineyard estate.

The hotel specializes in wine and spa, hence they offer a first-class spa area overlooking vineyards and the Serra Gaucha mountain tops surrounding the valley. We really enjoyed the spa and treated ourselves to a tonic massage and a relaxing swim in the tempered pool.

When it comes to wine, one of the sommeliers of the hotel gave us a tour of the magnificient newly built bodega that holds approx. 40 000 bottles of wine, of local as well as international origin.

The hotel also has a shop where they offer different products, ranging from cigars to bath robes and tennis balls. Speaking of tennis, the hotel just finished building two nice outdoor clay courts. When we arrived we found out, from an intinary posted in the elevator, that the Sports Director of the hotel offered free tennis lessons. Turned out the guy was really dedicated and after the lesson he took us for a walk around the hotel, showing us the best place from where to witness the sunset!

We ate some great food and enjoyed some nice wine in the restaurant. However, we felt the food could have been a touch better, some of the dishes we had were lovely while others left us indifferent. Also, the hotel are experimenting with some kind of a "mobile breakfast buffet", meaning that you as a guest sit down at your table and the staff run around offering you food from carts. This caused some waiting and we also found the selection to be a bit limited.

I can not say enough about the ambience of the hotel, two giant open fireplaces, sofas and comfortable armchairs, a cosy bar etc etc. Also, the hotel offers free, powerful internet and we could use our laptop everywhere in the hotel without any problem.

Finally, Gramado and Canela are two pittoresque "European-style" small towns located about two hours drive from the hotel. Go there and enjoy a bit of Europe in Brasil. We found some nice shopping and had a lovely fondue-lunch.

  • Liked — The views, the wine, the ambience!
  • Disliked — The breakfast concept should be reviewed
