Fasano’s first foray outside of his native Brazil comes in the form of an exotic, picturesque escape nestled into the countryside of Punta del Este, Uruguay. Fasano Las Piedras has become a destination for Brazilian celebs and supermodels and boasts a polo field, private villas, and a beach club among other amenities.
Set inland among a rural landscape dotted with pine trees, grassy dunes and fleeting ocean views, the luxury hotel is a marriage of country and sea. Designed by Isay Weinfeld the lobby features huge slabs of exposed granite and reclaimed ceiling beams set against a backdrop of modern mission style décor and lux Italian furnishings. The twenty bungalows and twelve suites offer a calming, neutral palette of earth tone walls, wood paneling and supple, leather touches. It’s the perfect oasis for a chic, active crowd that fancies melding sport with glamour. They’ve got their pick from polo grounds, horizon pool, spa, equestrian center and boathouse. laspiedrasfasano.com
