Rio de Janeiro: Fasano Rio

Fasano Rio

Ipanema beach is one of the most prized addresses in Rio and here you find the super-cool, first class hotel Fasano. The interior style is the work of renowned French designer Phillippe Starck so you can expect clean lines, unfussy décor and an almost floaty feel to the ultra-smart accommodation.  

Guest rooms and suites have gleaming hardwood floors and the unashamedly white marble bathrooms are especially pleasing.  Downstairs, the entrance is a bit like a British pub, so you know you are staying somewhere a bit different.  It’s tempting to spend time in the celebrated Italian restaurant and the spa.  Another magical feature is the rooftop infinity pool - overlooked by Ipanema’s famous “two brothers” mountains - where some evenings there is a bit of a “cocktails scene” where guests can relax and mingle.  Service throughout is friendly and enthusiastic.
