2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Tauá Grande Hotel e Termas de Araxá is a traditional hotel at a city in the state of Minas Gerais, Araxá, Brazil. The complex was build by the president of Brazil at 1944, Getúlio Vargas. It is an exuberant building, with an hispanic colonial style architecture. The gardens around the hotel were projected by the famous landscaper Burle Max, who had also worked with Oscar Niemeyer in many other works. The complex also has a lake and a great hiking trail through the grove of the property. Since 1944 this luxurious hotel gave to his visitors an unforgettable experience, so much by his glorious building, as the famous spa, offering guests special baths and massages.

Funcionários muito amigáveis e prestativos. Limpeza impecável por toda a área. A única ressalva seria a velocidade do wi-fi. // Very friendly staff. Impeccable cleanliness in all areas. My only negative comment would be on the low speed of the internet.

I've had many trips to this hotel. Great infrastructure for families and this time I was on a business event. Great place for corporation events too. The room was well equiped, the hotel is still wonderful, big spacious rooms, lovely food and entertainment.

Taua Grande Araxa is a palatial old style grand hotel with columns and high ceilings and stature. We were staying for a very short time on business in the area so we had very little experience to enjoy the wealth of facilities and services at this big hotel resort. Clients who got the massages said they were excellent. Obviously the termas (hot mineral water springs) are a big feature. Big salons, sweeping lawns, comfortable old style room. We didn’t have enough time to appreciate this resort hotel but I’m happy to award five stars from what I saw.

The structure is amazing, looks like a kind of castle. A lot of green areas, lakes, nature, animals and more. The rooms are quite old fashioned but comfortable. The hotel atmosphere remembers brazil’s 40/50s. The thermas and spa areas has a lot of baths and massages. Look for the radioactive and sulfurous waters, you can taste then and bring a small amount with you too. You can visit the ruins of an old hotel too, walk in trails and see a lot of birds, like toucans, woodpeckers and kingfishers. And if you have kids or like group activities, the place is a must have on the weekends. Lots and lots of activities, guided by young, happy and fun people. Activities the whole day, in the pool, scotch bar, games room and open areas.
