Fasano Rio de Janeiro
One of Rio’s most sophisticated hotels with a superb location at the beginning of Ipanema Beach, the Fasano is Rio's trendiest hotel, renowned for its faultless quality, one of the city’s finest restaurants and a spectacular rooftop infinity pool.
Created from scratch by legendary designer Phillipe Starck, every facet of Fasano’s lavish style, from furniture to uniforms, echoes the golden Bossa Nova era of the 50s and 60s, taking you back to Rio’s glamorous heyday in magnificently modern fashion. The Fasano Al Mare, one of this gastronome city’s finest restaurants, specialises in exquisite seafood dishes from chef Paolo Lavezzini.
Pop into the Baretto-Londra, designed as a playful homage to the joys of London, and watch Rio’s trendiest crowd work this gorgeous bar. The rooftop infinity pool with its panoramic views of Ipanema has been voted one of the world’s top ten; savour an exotic juice as you take in a miraculous sunrise, or watch the sun sink over the mountains with an award-winning cocktail. With an exclusive beach stand, a world-class beauty centre and a high-tech fitness centre, the Fasano offers every luxury the discerning traveller could require.
All of the rooms are decked in stunning hardwood floors and bear Phillipe Starck’s iconic ear-shaped mirrors and elegant Sergio Rodrigues chairs. Each room features 300-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and goose-down pillows, full butler service, a balcony and stunning views. Deluxe Rooms offer extra space while the Oceanfront Suites are luxuriously spacious and feature a loft-style living room, private bar, minibar with espresso machine and panoramic sea views.
