It is snowing this morning in New York, so here’s a little visual trip to sunny Rio for those who aren’t getting a kick out of this first snow of winter. Located on a glamorous strip of coastline in the heart of Ipanema, the Hotel Fasano is one of those delightful little treats to discover. We took a trip up to the roof to get a view of one of the most amazing pools I have ever experienced. A marble-encased infinity-style reflection of the sky, it blends into the Praia de Ipanema through the glass balcony beyond. Everything about this Hotel is a visual WOW! A collection of seashells and coral in Hollywood Regency-style “bookcases” delight sidewalk passerby. The same Hollywood-Regency style “bookcases” on the interior, house the liquor collection for the bar.
