summer living series – fabulous hotels – Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is one of the most awe inspiring cities in the world.  As the locals call it, a true cidade maravilhosa. Its geography is mind boggling and the beauty of its people, both physically and emotionally is what it is all about!
Right on the border of Copacabana with Ipanema is one of the world’s best hotels … The Fasano Rio.  The location cannot be better and the hotel truly exudes a local charm, and the interior is decorated with a modernist sensibility rivaling the best design hotels in the world.  From the view of the pool (photo above) you can see why no self describing carioca is ever in a hurry … why should they if life is soooo beautiful!
