In the land of spectacular beaches and pristine waters, the tropical climate of Brazil is a welcome retreat for lazy days spent lounging by the pool, boating trips, and adventurous jaunts into the jungle. West of Rio de Janeiro sits Hotel Fasano Angra dos Reis and FRAD.E residential villas. Recently opened, the hotel and villas were designed by renowned architecture studio Bernardes Arquitetura—known for drawing inspiration from the surrounding greenery, natural wood, and sea.

Developed with sustainability in mind, the 60-suite hotel and the 145-apartment bespoke residential villas (named Maris, Acqua, and Natura) are home to over 322,000 square feet of reforested vegetation in an effort to restore reef flora and the reforestation of the Atlantic Forest. Additional sustainability efforts consist of FRAD.E’s plans to build a new cultural center for the community in the near future.
