We've long known beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But in rare instances there are beauties so universal that we are drawn by some magic, magnetic pull. Design Hotels™ introduces three such cases – pools so irresistible in nature, the only remaining question is: one piece or two?
Boldly situated in one of São Paulo's largest green spaces, Hotel Unique's vast metropolis provides the backdrop for rooftop splashings. At Boucan by Hotel Chocolat in Saint Lucia, contemplate your relationship
with the cocoa bean while soaking amongst the Piton Mountain tops. Scandinavian ideals in design and
wellness meet in Gothenburg at Avalon Hotel. The ancient art of Feng Shui runs throughout, forming a
modern sanctuary in the historic port city.
Hotel Unique, São Paulo
A true sculptural reference in modern architecture, the inverted green copper arch that is Hotel Unique houses 85 designer rooms and ten suites and free-flowing public spaces. Surrounded by the stacked skyline of São Paulo, the crimson tiled rooftop pool boasts an underwater sound system, iconic views of Ibirapuera Park and even a signature martini served at the soul of the hotel, Skye Restaurant & Bar.
Boucan by Hotel Chocolat, Saint Lucia
Located 300 meters (1000 ft) above sea level and framed by commanding Caribbean boulders, Saint Lucia's
oldest cocoa estate Boucan, by Hotel Chocolat is sweetening the deal, marrying raw nature with responsible
luxury. 14 private lodges are crowned by Club Boucan, offering an impressive 50 foot black quartz infinity
pool, volcano views and dedicated service. Not to be outdone by the open-air rainforest showers.

uncomplicated and functional reign, with special attention given to holistic tendencies - both in design and
wellness. The rooftop retreat offers an urban panorama with 360° views over central Gothenburg, and a
