Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro
Restaurateur Rogério Fasano established himself as a tastemaker par excellence with his flagship Fasano hotel in São Paulo. And now, the opening of the second Fasano, in Rio’s perennially chic Ipanema, sees his talent for infusing environments with social cachet reach critical mass. The 91 rooms are spare and breezy with white walls, leather-upholstered Mies daybeds, Amazonian wood side tables, and at least two burnished Sergio Rodriguez chairs. Guests enjoy two pairs of black-and-white Havainas flip-flops in the guest bathrooms, which are yours to keep.
