We are perhaps the most excited about the opening of the Hotel Fasano Angra which will finally open on 25th January 2018 after a number of delays but is an exciting new addition to the Brazilian luxury hotel scene. Located in Angra dos Reis it will be an ideal addition to a visit to Rio de Janeiro and is the 4th Fasano property to open in Brazil and is bound to have the same high standards of the Fasano family’s 3 other properties in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Boa Vista. There is also a Fasano in Punta del Este in Uruguay.
The Fasano group should also open properties in Salvador and Belo Horizonte within the next few months of 2018 in two cities which are in need of luxury boutique properties.
