On the avenida Vieira Souto in the heart of Ipanema Beach, the stage is set! In a location like this, we can already feel the taste of lemon in our mouth from the caipirinha cocktail which we will be enjoying in the lounge of the Fasano Rio.
Moreover, Philippe Starck was not mistaken, and once again in charge of the decoration, this time for this glamorous establishment in this brasilian city. Indeed, the master pays tribute to the 50s and 60s with an air of Bossa Nova in the style he created, and makes Fasano the “must stay” of Rio.
The 79 rooms and suites – all with balcony – combine wooden floors, designer furniture, marble bathrooms and large glass panels. In this very contemporary atmosphere, the “Starck” mirrors with their characteristic curves add a fancy touch to the sober lines.
The several restaurants will delight the taste buds of gourmets, including the Fasano al Mare inspired by Italian, Mediterranean and with some taste from the sea thanks to the specialties of seafood. On another note, The Baretto Londra serves tapas in a decor made of famous rock groups’ vinyls.
At the night club bar, a DJ reminds us that the Brazilian atmosphere really is a must. Finally, the Fasano Rio has a rooftop swimming pool, a Spa and a private beach on Ipanema Bay.
