Highlights:

  • Infinity pool on the roof, private patch on the beach

  • Ipanema’s fashionista favourite

  • Restaurant from the famous Fasano empire

Skimpy supermodel chic – this is the land of Alessandra Ambrosios and Giseles (don’t let that put you off your three courses).

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Ipanema, 4pm, Saturday. We’re dressed like crazy Cariocas in Havaiana'd multi-coloured get-ups, stepping out of an icy-cold minibus into the thick tropical sea air. Greeted by the beaming smiles of two tanned doormen, our heavy bags vanish before our very eyes. Having just arrived at Fasano from a low-key yoga retreat in the Atlantic rainforest of Ihle Grande two hours down the coast, we’re detecting a distinct whiff of wealth. Contrast is a common theme in Brazil.

Bossanova-chic lobby negotiated, we’re breezing through billowing Philippe Starck curtains only to be welcomed by a crew of busy

Dining information

Restaurant:

Al Mare restaurant is named after the sea; look out for Italian-inspired seafood suppers, such as seared tuna with baked endive and a fish-based lasagne. Expect great things from this restaurant superpower (Vittorio Fasano opened the first outpost in São Paulo in 1902).

Top table:

For privacy, one of the spread-out tables with deep wooden seats and big white cushions on the terrace. For people-watching, ask for a table inside, close to the window for a full view of the restaurant.

Last orders:

Breakfast starts at 6.30am and is available until 10.30am; lunch is 12pm–3.30pm; dinner is from 7pm until the last guest is ready to leave.

Room service:

Breakfast and an abridged version of the menu is on offer 24 hours a day.

Hotel bar:

Baretto Londra is named after the owner’s favourite city (London, if you’re still guessing). It’s small and intimate, with leather chairs, aged Argentine red brick, low-lighting and Union Flags. The cocktails aren’t bad, either – try the yellow-fruits caipirinha.
