The luxury Fasano hotel was designed in its entirety by the legendary Philippe Starck and seamlessly combines sophistication and contemporary elegance with the latest in technology. The modern twist to circa 1950s style is epitomized by open brickwork, white marble floors and contrasting rustic wood furniture.
The rooms and suites at the Fasano are the last word in luxury and slick design, with sumptuous hardwood floors, Dali-inspired ear shaped mirrors, fine Egyptian cotton bed linen and goose-down pillows. Attention has been given to every detail, right down to the sumptuous king beds in the ocean facing rooms and suites having been carefully placed on an incline to maximize the ocean view.
Dining at the Fasano is an experience in itself. The hotel's elegant Fasano Al Mare, specializing in Italian and locally inspired cuisine with an emphasis on seafood, is widely acclaimed around the world for its superb gastronomic cuisine. For something more casual guests can enjoy specially designed cocktails and light lunches at the hip Baretto-Londa bar, which doubles up as a nightclub.
The piece de resistance of the Fasano is without a doubt the large infinity pool on the roof deck, with spectacular views across the ocean and a trendy bar that is frequented by the Rio jet set. The perfect spot for enjoying a caipirinha whilst watching the sun go down.

When to go
Rio de Janeiro is a year round destination. Spring (September - October) is one of the nicest times to visit Rio, before the humidity sets in. Rio's forests and gardens are lush and beautiful to see at this time. Summer vacation begins in mid-December and lasts until February. During this time the beaches are packed with Cariocas working on their tans. This can also be the rainiest time of year in Rio. The heavy heat starts around October and will reach 40 degrees Celsius on a sunny day. Winter vacation happens in July and, although the days can stay hot, the evenings in Rio get relatively chilly dropping to 15 degrees Celsius. The winds and dampness can make this feel colder. Summers are best for diving while the winter months (June - August) are the best for surfers. Carnaval is held every year, 7 weeks before Easter Sunday. During this period, and often the weeks leading up to it, Rio is at its liveliest. It is also a time when prices skyrocket and crowds can become unbearable.
