Top Ten Luxury
Fasano Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Philippe Starck extravaganza (his first architectural project) the hotel in super sexy Ipanema pays tribute to the Bossa Nova era in the 50's and 60's, when Ipanema had its heyday, so expect 1960s-style furniture and vintage uniforms. It is a favourite with Ipanema fashionistas and TV types. The fabulous Fasano Family have been in the restaurant and hotel game for more than 100 years and also own Hotel Fasano Boa Vista and the hip Hotel Fasano São Paulo. In Rio TLTB loves the rooftop deck and infinity pool which overlooks the sensuous curve of Ipanema Beach and the hotel's private patch of sand and beach stand.  We also love the seafood at Fasano Al Mare, and the surprising tribute to London beer culture in the redbrick-and-leather Baretto-Londra bar.
Book a suite if you see yourself lounging on a leather day bed. No need to bring thongs - the hotel supplies them. Let's be clear -since this is Brazil land of the thong bikini - by 'thongs' we mean 'flip-flops', for your feet!  We know we said this was a sexy hotel but there is a limit ...
