Ever have one of those hotel stays where you just… don’t ever want to leave?

Welcome to the Fasano Sao Paulo Brazil Hotel — where you can also maximize your spending with points and miles. Don’t believe us? Well, Brian earned 5,170 miles per night during his trip in addition to a room upgrade. And we love a good upgrade here at TPG.

The hotel (aside from the P&M perks) also had some fantastic, standout amenities. Complete with stunning views, room for about a 30-person party and some thoughtful gifts from the hotel staff, a stay at the Fasano is quite impressive, to say the least. This is how he booked it.
