Fasano Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Located on Avenida Vieira Souto in the heart of Ipanema beach, Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro combines the glamour and sophistication of Rio’s most coveted address with the Fasano commitment to excellence. In his first hotel arquitecture project, Philippe Starck chose to reflect the heyday of the Bossa Nova era in the 50’s and 60‘s, when Ipanema blossomed into the city’s most charming neighborhood
Guests can experience the exquisite Fasano cuisine at the elegant Fasano al Mare restaurant and enjoy signature poolside cocktails by the infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean. The unique view comprises the Morro Dois Irmãos, the Arpoador and Corcovado in one sweeping landscape.All 79 rooms and 10 suites have balconies, feature sumptuous hardwood floors, along with Starck’s Dali-esque ear-shaped mirrors (aptly named “ears that see”), and elegant Sergio Rodrigues chairs.
