The first hotel to be designed entirely by Philippe Starck, the Fasano Rio combines unique retro-inspired style with one of the most illustrious addresses in the city. Located in the heart of buzzing Ipanema , this sleek and striking hotel takes its cues from Brazil's bossa-nova era, with the 50s and 60s design influences informing everything from the furniture to the uniforms worn by the polished staff.
Away from your room, soak up the sun and enjoy spectacular 360-degree views from the stunning rooftop pool, before enjoying a meal in hotel's exclusive restaurant. Run by Executive Chef Luca Gozzani, it serves up some of the best Mediterranean-influenced seafood in the city, along with seductive sea views.
Days at Fasano Rio can be spent whiling the day away on the warm sands of Ipanema beach or strolling along the seafront to the equally beautiful Arpoador beach. For a change of pace, hire a bicycle and discover the inviting range of boutiques, bars and restaurants dotted along the beachfront, or take to the waves with a surfboard provided by the hotel. While in Rio, it would be remiss not to visit the spectacular statue of Christ the Redeemer, towering above the Rio skyline.
