Fasano Hotel Rio de Janeiro is the first building in Brazil designed by Philippe Starck, making it the most fascinating destination at Ipanema’s beachfront. Among the attractions are the infinity edge pool that leans over the beach, surrounded by the Arpoador beach,the Dois Irmãos Mountains and the Corcovado. Its architecture and interior design pay homage to the spirit of Brazilian design of the 1950’s and 1960’s, and the glorious Bossa Nova era.

Channeling the heyday of Jobim and Gilberto, the staff wears Ocimar Versolato–inspired uniforms. Distinctly Brazilian materials like Îpe flooring and the enormous piquiá tree stump used for the reception desk are mixed with Grecian marble, 19th-century Argentinean brick and Chinese onyx. The guest rooms have Sergio Rodrigues furnishings and Starckian ear-shaped mirrors and come with private balconies affording sweeping views. Overseeing the Al Mare restaurant is a chef from Florence’s Michelin-starred Enoteca Pinchiorri, while the Renata de Abreu Spa offers La Prairie treatments
