The in­sider’s guide

to siz­zling Rio de Janeiro.

With World Cup fever tak­ing over, our stylish sis­ters at ELLE Brasil share the in­side scoop

on Rio de Janeiro.

STAY The fam­ily-owned Ho­tel Fasano Rio de Janeiro (fasano.com.br) is lo­cated di­rectly in front of Ipanema Beach. The ho­tel was de­signed by Philippe Starck in a ’50s and ’60s style but with a mod­ern twist. Its best fea­ture is the rooftop ter­race’s in­fin­ity pool, which of­fers far-reach­ing views of Morro Dois Ir­mãos, Ar­poador, Ipanema and Cor­co­v­ado.

FOR PROX­IM­ITY TO THE BEACH

RE­LAX

FOR A SPA DAY The Zen decor at Ho­tel Santa Teresa’s Le Spa Natura (santa-tere­sa­ho­tel.com/spa) makes it the per­fect spot to de­stress. Re­bal­ance your sleep pat­terns with the Jet Lag mas­sage. SHOP

FOR THE TOP SWIMWEAR “Lenny Niemeyer is the most so­phis­ti­cated beach­wear de­signer in Brazil,” says Chantal Sordi, fash­ion fea­tures edi­tor at ELLE Brasil. The de­signer (and for­mer land­scape ar­chi­tect) launched her name­sake shops in 1993, and her love of na­ture can be seen in the flo­ral and geo­met­ric prints of her fem­i­nine-sporty swim­suits, ac­ces­sories, shoes and hand­bags (lennyniemeyer.com/br).
