Stylish 1930s European gentlemen’s club. Rich wood paneling, nicely patinated leather chairs and Italian travertine walls and floors set the tone. Designed by Brazilian starchitects Isay Weinfeld and Marcio Kogan, it has a restrained, understated masculinity, all rich textures and classic details, such as framed vintage maps, streamlined light fixtures and Eames chairs.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms are spacious, with windows that take up most of one wall and let in abundant light. Along with the usual luxury suspects, including parquet floors, Egyptian cotton sheets and Persian kilim rugs, they have arty flourishes such as Murano vases and Venetian-framed paintings. The marble bathrooms are similarly large and come with plush towels (and a heated rack to hang them on).
Wallpaper magazine named the jewel box Baretto bar the number one bar in the world. Discreet and intimate, it serves as a venue for musicians from Bobby Short and Carol Sloane to Caetano Veloso and Os Cariocas. The Italian trattoria Nonno Rugero is considered one of the city’s top restaurants, a grand room with a terrace overlooking a leafy street. There’s an indoor pool on the 21st floor that’s reserved for hotel guests, and a small spa offering treatments using products from L’Occitane, La Prairie and Germaine du Capuccini.
In the Area
The Jardins district is the Beverly Hills or Madison Avenue of Sao Paulo, a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood dotted with high-end boutiques and glamorous sidewalk cafés. The main drags are Oscar Friere and Rua Haddock Lobo, home to the very groovy Havianas flagship, sexy dress shops such as Le Lis Blanc Deux, bathing suit boutiques galore, and mellow spots like Café Santo Grao. At the latter, stop by the semi-enclosed terrace for terrific coffee and people watching.
How to Get There
This hotel stay gave Sao Paulo another face.
Although I've visited this city several times I had such a good time at FASANO it changed my whole "wanting to revisit" this place.
I would strongly recommend all Hotel Lovers to visit this Hotel and also dine at The restaurant in the Hotel as well as the other two restaurants around the corner, the Italian and Brazilian.
The property is stunning and they pay attention to every last detail. Their gym and spa facilities were great and the location is unbeatable. The bars and restaurants are a destination in themselves and the staff was warm and friendly. Highly recommend!
The Fasano never disappoints. I’ve stayed her a couple times here and quite a few times in Rio. The service, the staff, is superior to any other hotel in São Paulo. The location is also great which makes it easy to walk places quickly.
Staying at the Fasano is always fantastic. Perfectly located, the hotel offers the best in hospitality and dining. Spacious and well decorated rooms whisk you off into a beautiful modernist brazilian era. Find time to enjoy the spa and pool.
Loved Every Minute - The Best Hotel in Sao Paulo with a perfect location. I have stayed at his property 4-5 times in the past. The level of service is exceptional - from the front desk to the lounge to the spa to the gym. Will continue to stay here on future trips.
