The stylish Fasano Rio De Janeiro is perfectly at home on Vieira Souto Avenue, in the heart of Rio’s most desirable neighbourhood. Step over the threshold and you’ll immediately see that the area’s vibrant history is a wonderful complement to the hotel’s contemporary luxury and attentive service.
The Fasano Al Mare restaurant is a delight. With a rich array of Mediterranean seafood dishes, courtesy of Michelin-starred head chef Paolo Lavezzini, it’s the place for a celebratory meal. And for something less formal, head up to the roof for a dip in the infinity pool, a signature cocktail and sweeping views of the city and Corcovado.
When you’ve exhausted the beach-life, there’s plenty about the city to explore. The luxury shopping of the Leblon district is only a stroll away, and many of Rio’s most historic cultural landmarks – such as the fantastically ornate Sao Bento Monastery – are just a short trip across town. For a complete change of pace, make for Tijuca National Park with its woodland trails and incredible coast and city panorama.
