Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro
The luxury hotel industry is currently booming in Brazil, and you can’t go wrong with a stay at Fasano’s second outpost in Rio de Janeiro. The sequel to its successful sister in São Paulo, Fasano Rio de Janeiro is a hip and happening hotel along the eastern end of Ipanema Beach.
As the place to be seen, this modern-design hotel in Rio combines glamour and understated luxury. With a rooftop pool that simply oozes sex appeal and superb views over Ipanema Beach, Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro has proved a big hit with moneyed Brazilians and hedonistic jetsetters.
Inspired by Bossa, designed by Philippe Starck from scratch, Fasano’s hotel in Rio de Janeiro still retains an aura of exclusivity. With rich hardwoods and playful Fifties & Sixties furniture from Brazilian modernist designers, this oceanfront hotel has a contemporary-retro feel, as well as reflects the relaxed beat of the city.
Offering the latest in-room technology, there are 91 understated and not very spacious rooms. Try to book a seaside room with balcony plus stunning views of stylish Ipanema Beach. Fancy extra space? Upgrade to a luxurious suite with a Jacuzzi.
Michelin-starred chef Luca Gozzani continues Fasano’s century-old dining legacy at the Italian Fasano Al Mare Restaurant. The hotel’s darkly Baretto-Londra bar and nightclub is the place to be for Brazil’s rich and famous. But the highlight of Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro is the super-cool rooftop pool and bar. The vibe? It’s definitely, sexily Brazilian. This is the ultimate spot to chill out, soak up the sun, admire the Atlantic Ocean, and sip a caipirinha at sunset. For beach bunnies, there are private cabanas from the hotel on Ipanema Beach. Spa fans can go to Spa Fasano, while sport fanatics can work out in the gym.
