• Travel: Beat the heat
    From an oasis in the heart of a metropolis to an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, dive into the best urban rooftop pools around the globe and escape the pace of city life. By CLOVER STROUD

    Fasano RIO DE JANEIRO,

    Rio, Brazil

    If you are looking for a pool to end all pools, you will find it right here. Hovering above Ipanema Beach, Fasano Rio de Janeiro’s infinity views of the Arpoador neighborhood and the Morro Dois Irmãos and Corcovado mountains are extraordinary. It comes as no surprise that this style haven was designer Philippe Starck’s first hotel architecture project in 2007, for which he has drawn heavily on the Bossa Nova era of the ’50s and ’60s. If this pool was a supermodel, it might be called Gisele.
