Τhe Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro is located by the sea, on Avenida Vieira Souto, in the heart of Ipanema. The Fasano combines the charm and sophistication of Rio’s most coveted address with modernity and efficiency in design and service.
The project is signed by the renowned architect, Philippe Starck, who has elected wood, glass and marble as core materials, perfectly attuned both to the city and to the vision of restaurateur and hotelier Rogério Fasano. From the eight-storey facade, following the seaside architecture, till the furniture, chosen in the best vein of the Brazilian design from the 1950s and 1960s (including pieces by Studio Branco&Preto, Sergio Rodrigues and exclusive creations by Philippe Starck), everything has been thought out to integrate itself into the Rio’s spirit of sophisticated casualness.
The breathtaking panorama from the swimming pool on the roof gives a complete view to the beach and constitutes itself an attraction. Guests can enjoy a bar service that provides light meals all day long.
On the same floor, a fully appointed gym offers personal trainers and a sauna. In front of the hotel, Fasano’s exclusive beach service provides all comforts, including chairs, parasols and bar service.
The 92 apartments (overlooking the beach or the patio) boast Egyptian cotton sheets, goose down pillows and all manner of technological amenities, such as plasma TV, DVD player and wireless Internet connection. Balconies overlooking the beach, as well as showers commanding views to the sea, have their share in making guests feel closest to one of the world’s most famous postcards.
The Restaurant Fasano Al Mare is located to the left of the lobby and explores the most diverse aspects of a Mediterranean cuisine that is essentially focused on fish and seafood. Breakfast, lunch and supper are served daily in the 70-seat dining hall and the pleasant terrace. On the same floor, the intimate Lounge Bar Londra is the perfect option for a nice night in town. Opening daily, it brings back classic rock tunes, besides offering small, diversified shows.
