Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro Review

(Rio de Janeiro Hotels) - Located on Rio de Janeiro's Avenida Vieira Souto on the eastern end of the glamorous, sexy Ipanema Beach, Brazil’s Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro is all Italo-Brazilian sophistication with a glass exterior, a rooftop white marble pool, and a section of private beach. Find a full Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro Review in this exclusive article.

Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro

Elegant, understated and fabulous. 3 words that sum up the Fasano Rio. Designed by Philippe Starck from scratch, inspired by bossa nova, the hotel is a decadent blend of period and designer furniture and cool contemporary style; rich hardwoods sit alongside Art Deco-style lamps, staff wear 1950s inspired uniforms. 

The 79 rooms and 10 suites luxuriate in beds with 300 thread-count Egyptian linens and plump goose-down pillows, marble bathrooms and quirky fittings. Nearly all rooms have a private balcony, most overlooking the clear Atlantic Ocean.

Romantics, sybarites, families and design hounds are all made to feel at home here and the hotel aims to reflect the relaxed beat of the city. Spend a few days lazing by the rooftop infinity pool admiring the unbeatable panoramic view or slip on your complimentary flip flops and wander down to the golden beach, where Rio's bronzed and beautiful strut their stuff in tiny swimwear. Try the signature mais vida treatment combining shiatsu and reflexology in the indulgent Fasano Spa, or visit the beauty salon. The Marvellous City has much to see: Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain) and Corcovado are nearby, and there's a wealth of designer shops to browse. After sundown, chill out at a beach bar, heat up at one of Rio's über-trendy nightclubs or have an unforgettable Italian-influenced meal at the Fasano Al Mare restaurant.

The best of Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro

  • Knowing you're staying in what many call the best hotel in Rio, with both style and great service in spades (they note your preferences for your return visit, all first time guests receive a complimentary 15-minute massage) 
  • The rooftop infinity pool, which overlooks the city, the ocean and Dois Irmãos; wonderful at sunset 
  • Strolling out of the door, straight onto the beach (private beach service includes umbrellas, chairs, towels, tent with security guard and waiters) 
  • The rooftop bar - the perfect place to sip a Caipirinha as the sun goes down 
  • The décor: a plush mix of 1950s vintage and retro-modern chic in pale olives and golds and lots of wood, across all eight storeys
  • Baretto-Londra - the super-cool lounge bar - is a hotspot for Brazilian celebs

The worst of Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro

  • The prices, both for accommodation and dining. Rio is an expensive city and this is arguably the snazziest hotel in town 
  • The Superior Rooms are on the small side and only half have ocean views - if you're going to splash out, do it in style and upgrade to a suite 
  • Some find this end of Ipanema less enticing and the street in front of the hotel is a bit noisy 
  • There are no bathtubs, although the suites have Jacuzzis 
  • Apart from the rooftop terrace there's no outside space 
  • Breakfast isn't included

Location

In the heart of affluent Zona Sul and on the boundary of the stunning Arpoador and Ipanema beaches, Fasano peers out over the most attractive stretch of sand in the city, surrounded by some of the most expensive real estate on the continent. With Arpoador's rocks to the left and a full sweep of golden beach to the right that culminates at the foot of the Dois Irmãos mountain, as Rio views go, it doesn't get much better than that afforded from the rooftop pool and bar.
