Located on Avenida Vieira Souto in the heart of Ipanema beach, Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro combines the glamour and sophistication of Rio’s most coveted address with the Fasano commitment to excellence. In his first hotel architecture project, Philippe Starck chose to reflect the heyday of the Bossa Nova era in the 50’s and 60‘s, when Ipanema blossomed into the city’s most charming neighborhood.
The hotel caters to both leisure and business travelers, offering the latest in-room technology. Guests can experience the exquisite Fasano cuisine at the elegant Fasano al Mare restaurant and enjoy signature poolside cocktails by the infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean. The unique view comprises the Morro Dois Irmãos, the Arpoador and Corcovado in one sweeping landscape.
All 79 rooms and 10 suites have balconies, feature sumptuous hardwood floors, along with Starck’s Dali-esque ear-shaped mirrors (aptly named “ears that see”), and elegant Sergio Rodrigues chairs. King size beds with 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets and white goose down pillows are strategically positioned in our oceanfront rooms so that they are always facing the horizon and an ocean view. Rooms for guests with special needs are available, as well as connecting rooms. The marble bathrooms boast high-pressure showers and complimentary Ipanema flip-flops by Oskar Metsavaht. The oceanfront rooms have unparalleled views of Ipanema beach.
