In 2010, the opening of Hotel Fasano Punta del Este, in Uruguay, marked the international expansion of the Fasano brand. With an award-winning architectural project conceived by Isay Weinfeld, which effortlessly interacts with the breathtaking natural landscape, the first Fasano outside of Brazil is widely known as one of the most beautiful resorts in the world. Overlooking the Maldonado river, the property occupies a preserved area of 490 hectares in the heart of La Barra. After undergoing an expansion project, the hotel unveiled a new element: Locanda Fasano. Designed by Carolina Proto and located next to the iconic Fasano Restaurant, Locanda Fasano is comprised of 10 new apartments and suites, adding to the existing 20 bungalows on the ground. It offers a breathtaking view of the property and the surrounding nature, with leisure areas such as a lounge, swimming pool, solarium and bar.
