Overlooking iconic Ipanema beach’s surf break, the private balcony of the Fasano’s oceanfront suite is one of the most coveted corners in Rio. Even the king-size bed is positioned so you can wake up to a view of nothing but unadulterated glittering blue. Designed by Philippe Starck, the vintage 1960s style is an ode to Brazil’s bossa nova era, featuring a loft-style living room with sumptuous hardwood floors, butter-soft leather armchairs designed by Sergio Rodrigues, Chinese onyx lamps and a private bar. The open-plan marble bathroom features a walk-in shower and bathtub (both big enough for two and with ocean views). Instead of artwork, Dalí-esque mirrors are strategically positioned to capture glimpses of the ocean. Come sunset, head up to the rooftop pool and mingle with the hip locals.
