Rio de Janeiro

Rio, who has never dreamed of going there? As the Brazilians say, "If God was an artist then Rio would be his masterpiece ». The first brushstroke was the blue of the sea.... then, green ink fell onto the canvas and transformed itself into the forest. Then the mountains and the water appeared on the picture...Rio, nicknamed "cidade maravilhosa" (the marvelous city) owes its reputation to its incredible beauty. Founded in the majestic bay of Guanabara, which the Portuguese explorers confused with a river mouth (which explains the name of the city, literally meaning river of January), the city has expended in every possible direction, still in an amazing proximity with nature.The floresta da Tijuca spreading in the middle of the city, is the largest urban forest in the world. The Corcovado dominates and protects the city at 700 m above sea level, with views over the forest and all around the city. Facing the Corcovado is the other symbol of this city, the imposing Sugarloaf Mountain, the solitary guardian at the entrance of the bay. The beaches spread from there as an opening to the ocean with all those familiar names: Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Barra… where the Cariocas gather in these temples dedicated to the cult of the body. Far less represented on Rio's postcards, the very eclectic city center shelters the modern business center next to the architectural buildings from the time where Rio dreamed to compare with the European capitals. You can walk around without really understanding the actual identity of the city, passing from monumental avenues to alleyways housing artisan workshops.

Located on Avenida Vieira Souto in the heart of Ipanema beach, Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro combines the glamour and sophistication of Rio’s most coveted address with the Fasano commitment to excellence. In his first hotel architecture project, Philippe Starck chose to reflect the heyday of the Bossa Nova era in the 50’s and 60‘s, when Ipanema blossomed into the city’s most charming neighborhood. The unique view comprises the Morro Dois Irmãos, the Arpoador and Corcovado in one sweeping landscape.
