A chic, contemporary and ultra-fashionable designer property in a prime position on Ipanema Beach. 

Ipanema beach is one of the most prized addresses in Rio and here you find the super-cool, first class hotel Fasano. The design is the inspiration of renowned French designer Phillippe Starck so you can expect clean, unfussy décor, a quirky take on a retro 50s-60s  bossa nova style in this ultra-smart luxury accommodation.  

With a minimalist blend of contemporary sophistication punctuated with arty, Dali-esque features, the airy feel in the guest rooms and suites is enhanced with gleaming hardwood floors; while the unashamedly white marble bathrooms are especially pleasing.  In contrast, the Barrita Londra is a nostalgic throwback to the cosy pubs of the same era. You'll certainly be tempted to dine in the celebrated Italian restaurant and perhaps indulge in a treatment or two at the spa.  Perhaps the most stunning feature is the magical rooftop infinity pool - with views over Ipanema’s famous “two brothers” mountains - where in the apricot glow of a tropical evening guests can relax and mingle over a cocktail. Service throughout is friendly and enthusiastic.

Our Expert's Opinion

This hotel is certainly luxurious, exclusive and trendy but for me the real highlight is the location. Set in Ipanema with a fantastic rooftop pool and bar which allows you to fully appreciate the views over the sands of Ipanema beach
