One of the slickest hotels in Rio, Fasano is situated on Rio de Janeiro’s fashionable Ipanema Beach.
Designed by Philippe Starck, the elegant interiors give a modern twist to 1950's and 60's retro style. All rooms and suites come with terraces, high speed Wi-Fi Internet connection, plasma TV, DVD/CD player and marble bathrooms. The deluxe rooms overlook the Atlantic Ocean.
Facilities include a lobby bar, beach service, spa, gym, steam room and a rooftop infinity pool with a sun terrace. From here there are panoramic views, and you can watch the Cariocas going about their daily fitness routines or playing volleyball on the beach.
The rooftop bar serves light meals and fresh juices, and is a great spot for a sundowner drink, while the hotel's ultra-chic Fasano al Mare restaurant serves gastronomic Italian cuisine. The sights of Rio, including Sugar Loaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer are within easy reach.
