Hotel Fasano Sao Paulo
by: Farryn Weiner
Pre-World Cup work event (and a Brazilian wedding).
Me (oh, and a DJ entourage).
A room with a view.
Leather bed...check please.
Appropriately stocked with sandals for two.
Not so mini mini-bar.
Rainy day activities.
Stay a while.
Fuel up for the day over the breakfast buffet.
The chic and sweet indoor pool.
The restaurant is not to be missed.
They passed my boyfriends chocolate "test."
Your key comes equipped with the most perfect hand-illustrated map.
Highs + Lows
Three words: Japanese ofuro baths.
The English brickwork façade — a stark contrast to the usual Sao Paulo concrete.
Big, luxurious apartment-like rooms and ensuite bathrooms (think marble tubs and heated towel racks).
Leather. Leather everywhere.
The quiet power of the lobby scene: espresso fueled meetings by day, and Caipirinha fueled conversations by night
Spa is chic, but small (don’t expect a steam or sauna).
No outdoor pool or roof deck is a bit of a bummer.

Family-owned, luxury boutique hotel with a 1930’s flair.
Mid-century inspired, understated Brazilian hotspot.
Located on a quiet tree lined block in the heart of Jardim Paulista, near some of Sao Paulo’s best shopping and eats.
Intimate (and often live) jazz.
- Year Opened
- Designed By
Fasano Family (and architects Isay Weinfeld and Marcio Kogan)
Indoor pool and gym (and Japanese baths).
Two restaurants (fourth generation restaurateurs, so don’t miss out on the in-house eats).
Appropriately stocked for late-night drinks.
There’s a refined vibe, but children are welcome.
Don't check your bill ($$$$)...
