Connoisseurs of contemporary design will delight in Philippe Starck’s dazzling oceanfront Fasano Hotel on Ipanema beach which opened in late 2007. The hotel has 92 rooms and suites and we recommend the deluxe rooms or suites for their magnificent views of the ocean. Fasano is cool (Duran Duran stayed here when they ‘played’ Rio in 2008) and magnificent with a stunning rooftop pool, balcony rooms, intimate bar and state-of-the-art fitness centre. It also boasts one of the finest restaurants in Rio, the award winning Fasano al Mare, specializing in Italian seafood. At the beach, expect great beach service with bottled water, umbrellas and magazines. This boutique hotel is a luxury and cool hotel for your stay in Rio.
