This love motel does not look like a typical Brazilian motel, but rather a hotel room in New York. Nonetheless, couples here pay for a three- to four-hour period, and the objective is not to rest. Lavishly decorated, its suites have chromo therapy showers, and some even a sauna, hot tub and a pool with a small waterfall.
Considered the first boutique motel in Brazil, Lush has operated in São Paulo for more than 25 years. Each of its rooms is individually decorated and the motel boasts it has services as good as premium hotels around the city, including gourmet menu, imported beers and a wine cellar for its clients. Some suites are equipped with 4D cinema TVs, with popcorn as a house courtesy.

Located across from São Paulo’s most famous cable-stayed bridges, couples get to see one of the most beautiful sceneries of the city. Many of the rooms are equipped to handle swing parties, with pole dance railing and showers big enough to handle groups. Also available are rooms for wheelchair users.
One of the most popular boutique motels in the city, Acaso has 55 suites each uniquely decorated with a different theme. The most expensive rooms are equipped with a panoramic sauna, large whirlpool and a sunroof.
Located near the University of São Paulo (USP) the motel is particularly popular with the students. The establishment, however, boasts a menu exclusively prepared by a chef and its suites equipped with the latest technological gadgets to make any stay an experience to remember. One difference which stands out from other motels in São Paulo is that the L’Essence has an exclusive entrance for pedestrians, so a car is not, as in most cases, a “requirement” to enter the motel.
The Censiv Motel offers 46 suites with a total of 14 themes, including Oriental, Thai, Beachcombers, and Dance Floor aficionados. The most expensive suites offer duplex apartments, with hydro bathtub and a pool with cascading water.
Located in one of the less touristy neighborhoods of São Paulo, the Zapt motel offers several themed suites. The Solarium Eros Suite, for example, is for those who want to spice up their sex life and has a bed with handcuffs, mirror in the ceiling, erotic scale, two showers, a Jacuzzi and a solarium. Depending on the suite and the time of day you enter the motel, the establishment has courtesy breakfast, executive lunch or afternoon tea.
