Hotel Fasano, Rio de Janeiro

It’s about famous names. Fasano was designed by Philippe Starck. It also stands on the world-revered Ipanema Beach, amidst the glamour and sophistication of Brazil’s leading city.

Avenida Vieira Souto runs through the heart of the Ipanema Beach district and is perhaps the most desirable address in the whole of Rio de Janeiro. To do justice to such an iconic setting, Philippe Starck designed his first architectural project to reflect the classic era of the Bossa Nova – the 1950s and 1960s - when the Ipanema first blossomed into a vibrant centre for music, dance, art and bohemian lifestyle.

The rhythms of Latin America still course through this charming neighbourhood today, as you’ll discover if you stay at Fasano on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Brazil. You can indulge in decadent cocktails beside the ocean-view, infinity edge pool. Dine on haute cuisine in Fasano al Mare. And dance into the early hours, South American-style, in the Baretto-Londra nightclub.
