Quintessential Fact Sheet
Highlights of a stay at Hotel Fasano Rio de Janeiro
The ultimate luxury experience
Bask in the peaceful remoteness of a private hotel and farm 100 kilometers (62 miles) from São Paulo where the air is pure and fresh; the grounds breathtakingly surrounded by preserved Atlantic Forest. And in addition to wonderful forests and gardens on the property, the 150-meter (164-yard) lake, with treated water, is ripe for reflecting and swimming.
Taste authentic Brazilian recipes: feijoada (black beans, beef and pork stew); leitão à pururuca (oven-roasted suckling pig) with kale and cream of spinach; virado à paulista (refried beans, toasted manioc flour, sausage, fried egg, kale, pork rinds and pork chops); and quirera de frango (corn puree and chicken) with okra. Afterwards, how about a Romeo and Juliette (a classic dessert of cheese and goiabada – guava paste) or banana and tapioca ice cream? The menu, which was designed by the award-winning chef Laurent Suaudeau, uses ingredients picked daily from the farm’s own plantations.
A unique detail
Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld chose the view of the green pastures as one of the highlights in his overall design. The hotel blends into the horizon, which is perfectly framed by each rooms’ large glass doors.
An unforgettable moment
The complex also offers an outstanding 18-hole, 6,800-yard golf course designed by the renowned architect Randall Thompson. After a round, sit back on the spacious decks of the Golf Club House and enjoy the sweeping views of the complex while sipping delicious cocktails and aperitifs.
