The Fasano Hotel, a member of the uber-exclusive, celebrity favorite hotel and restaurant group by the same name based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, boasts a fantastic property on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro. The hotel, which straddles the perfect corner, between Posto 8 and Posto 9 of the beach, has become one of the most in-demand hot-spots in town. Their rooftop pool, with views of the city, mountains and sea, is often ladened with most incredible bodies and faces the world has to offer. And, for some reason, they all prefer the Fasano.
On a recent trip to Rio, we were invited to experience their rooftop, normally exclusively reserved for hotel guests. We were treated to an evening of delicious Brazilian snacks and a caipirinha tasting. The cashew, lemon and passionfruit caipirinhas were my favorites. We watched the sun go down over the city from the roof that night, enjoying the ambiance that only the Fasano can offer. It was magic. But, I’d recommend experiencing it yourself – words just can’t do it justice.
