Among the many things currently luring us to Brazil: this new hotel and spa in the mountainous region of Campos do Jordão. Designed by São Paulo-based firm Candida Tabet Arquitetura, the idyllic complex is set over 700 acres and comprises 11 stand-alone villas, each with its own garden, along with six suites that look out onto the rugged landscape. Botanique is home to the county's first full Brazilian spa, offering treatments inspired by the country's native and Afro-Brazilian heritage. And its restaurant offers locally sourced, contemporary Brazilian fare. There are opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and lake swimming - and, for homebodies, there's a private cinema and library.
