The Fasano is Rio de Janeiro's most glamorous and hip hotel, just across the beach in the popular neighborhood Ipanema, near upscale shops and restaurants. Designed by none other than Philippe Starck, the Fasano is the top destination for supermodels and celebrities. The rooftop has a white marble infinity pool with a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline. The contemporary rooms are styled with dark wood floors and designer furniture and have balconies. The seafood restaurant is one of the finest in town, but being footsteps away from many other restaurants, fine dining options in the area are plentiful, as is Rio’s nightlife. The Fasano may be somewhat overpriced but worth the splurge if you want to stay in one of the best hotels in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
