The Fasano

Rio de Janeiro

This boutique, Philippe Starck designed hotel is a gem.  The rooftop pool is one of the best places to have your evening drinks and watch the sun set on Rio, whilst the restaurant is probably the best in the city. The rooms are smaller than you would expect, but the balconies overlooking Ipanema beach are worth it.

Why we recommend it:

  • Knowing you’re staying in what promises to be the best hotel in Rio
  • The rooftop infinity pool, which overlooks the city
  • Strolling out of the door, straight onto the beach
  • A rooftop bar, the perfect place to sip a Caipirinha as the sun goes down
  • The decor: a sumptuous mix of 1950s furniture and 2007 chic
  • Londra, the super-cool lounge bar is a hot-spot for Brazilian celebs



The Fasano is the perfect way to make your stay in Rio unforgettable. This top hotel offers private sea view balconies, Rios best rooftop infinity pool and extremely attentive, knowledgeable and professional staff who work in the background.
The décor of the hotel is elegant, understated and fabulous with a mix of period furniture mixed with cool contemporary style. The first evidence of this is when you enter into to the lobby and see a huge part of an Amazonian tree trunk which forms the hotel reception desk.
The Fasano offers the most luxurious option while visiting Rio combing the sophistication of Ipanema with the modernity and efficiency in design and service.
