NileGuide Expert tip:
Londres, the hotel bar at Fasano Rio, is a dinky little space crammed with Rio's chic elite. The waiting list is endless, but, happily for guests at the hotel, your room pass grants immediate entry – with no queuing!
- Open since 2007 and owned by the Italian Fasano chain, Fasano Rio is the first hotel to rival Copacabana in the glamor stakes. With an interior designed by Phillipe Starck, an enviable location opposite Ipanema beachfront, and a marble infinity pool on the rooftop, this is the place to come if you are feeling truly indulgent. Budget travellers would reel in horror at the prices, but the luxurious details – from the widescreen plasma televisions right down to the goosedown duvets – make this hotel well worth a splurge if you have the cash to splash. The view from the rooftop pool is stunning, and the hotel's restaurant, Fasano Al Mar, has already won a string of awards.
