The title of this post should be “Best Vacation We’ve Taken In Years.” Despite everyone telling us how dangerous Brazil is, we LOVED the Fasano Hotel in Rio, felt totally safe the entire trip, and can’t wait to get back there.
The hotel has the best rooftop pool anywhere. It overlooks the heart of Ipanema beach, and I really think it may one of the best places in the world to have drinks at sunset. The hotel is designed by Philippe Starck–it’s chic and cozy and totally hip while also being very functional. We were there during Christmas and New Year’s and it proved to be quite the international hot spot. Priceless people watching. Splurge and get a room overlooking Ipanema beach. This place is heaven. (This picture doesn’t do it justice.) Rooms from $435.
