“Great location, pleasant staff, strange design”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The hotel is ideally located on the Ipanema beach front. Every staff member I interacted with went out of their way to please and to be helpful. The rooftop area has the most gorgeous view of the Dos Irmãos Mountains on the western side of the beach.

The Baretto lounge is a cool place to have cocktails and listen to vibey music later in the evening.
The complimentary flip flops in the room in lieu of slippers was a lovely unique touch. The room however had no sea view unless going to the very end of the balcony. It faced a grey wall of the next building! I found the room design rather strange and impractical too (as with the lobby of the hotel), plus only a shower in the bathroom (no bath). Be sure to check your room location and design to avoid disappointment.

I can't wait for another excuse to come back to Rio and stay in this hotel. The decorations are very modern, the room was quiet and the location is OTIMO, right across the street from lovely Ipanema beach. My favorite part by far, though, was the shower--water pressure to die for. The hotel is expensive, true, but worth the splurge if you can afford it. The bed was also very comfortable. My only real complaint was that the room was quite dark--great for atmosphere but not great for getting work done.

My father and I stayed here last year and absolutely loved it!
The restaurant and wine list was superb. And the roof top was amazing.
Great salon and I loved the fact you had a hairdresser on site.
It was the little touches, such as the flip flops, that made this place so great.
Would stay again.

This is a fairly new and trendy hotel in RJ located right in front of the beach. I am not a big fan of the Philippe Starck design but I guess it goes well with the hotel. The roof top is amazing and I would say it's the highlight of the hotel and the place to be. The breakfast is very good. But the service is not as good as Fasano Sao Paulo.

I tend to avoid superlatives - but we stayed at the Fasano for New Year's 2013 and it really seemed like what my version of heaven might be like. The hotel is in the most perfect location imaginable. The rooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. Despite the bustling feel of the lobby (everyone seems to want to come in) - it is actually a rather small hotel and retains that boutique feeling.

The pool is worthy of it's own review. It was far and away the most lively pool scene ever. Despite this, the service was spot-on every moment. We made dozens of friends. The only concern was the very real risk of someone hitting you with a champagne cork mid-day. We occasionally went down to the beach (very crowded) but then soon remembered that our hotel pool was far better. Dancing all through the day was not uncommon, yet, it never seemed to get old.

The New Year's Eve party was probably THE place to be in Rio. It went all through the night and into the day after which people seemed to spread out into the clubs.

We will be back - this was an amazing time !

Room Tip: The back facing rooms are half the price and very quiet. We found little need to have a sea-view c...

This place has absolutely everything you could ask for in a great hotel. Stunning rooms and service, superb location and a fantastic pool with a great view. I have stayed at several hundred hotels and I would rate this number 1!

Stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. Could not have had a better stay! Heaps of the friendliest and most helpful staff we've ever come across. Could not do enough for us! Fabulous roof top pool deck and bar with stunning views across/downIpanema Beach. Stunning room. Not really fair to single out any particular staff as they are all excellent without exception but receptionist Kim and waiter Francisco on Level 8 were superstars amongst a team of absolute stars. Would never contemplate staying anywhere else when we return to Rio! Very well done to all and many thanks!
