The Fasano simply oozes class. The decor is a little sombre and may not be to everyone's taste, but the location is perfect - right in the heart of Jardins, near great shops and restaurants, and its Italian restaurant is simply incredible.
Located in the Jardins district, home to some of Sao Paulo's finest boutiques, this high-rise hotel offers a stone-and-wood design palette sampling deco- elements from the 20's and 30's. The entrance of the hotel, flanked by a restaurant and high-rise residential condos, is well guarded by ear-plugged security detail seemingly ready for an invasion. Instead, a steady stream of Brazil's business elite and a few tourists, arrives to a sprawling lounge area assembled with leather settees and comfortable club chairs inviting to two-handed high balls of scotch or gin. Adjacent to the lobby lounge is Baretto (which actually means Jazz Bar in Portugese), a New-York style club where men still wear three-piece suits – albeit with a 30-inch waist and miniskirt-strutting supermodel on his arm. An enclosed rooftop pool, surrounded in limestone with skyline views of the city, offers a top-notch fitness center to keep the Brazilian torsos in shape. The Fasano family, who own and operate the hotel, are well known in São Paulo as restaurateurs with a history spanning over as 100 years. Their adjacent flagship restaurant, called simply Fasano, has presided over the address (itself named for great-grandfather Vittorio Fasano) since 1990 – thirteen years before the hotel itself.
Stylish and grown-up, Fasano is Sao Paulo's most elegant hotel. It's like a slick, old-school gentleman's club, comfortable and understated. It's also right next to the best shopping street in the city; so when you're drunk from all the retail you can escape to the hotel pool (essential in a city like Sao Paulo) and have the best massage in town. From your plumped-up bed, take in views over an urban landscape that looks just like Gotham and is swarming with helicopters. At night, eat in the restaurant, the most glamorous Italian around - locals book rooms just so that they can get a table.
The Fasano is the best hotel in Latin America or, who knows, anywhere else.
