Brazil: Fasano Boa Vista
PUR20 fasano boa vista

Opened: August 2011
Go for: The setting

The newest jewel in the crown of the Brazilian Fasano family of hoteliers, this countryside resort may be the ultimate setting for a corporate retreat for companies looking to tap Brazil's growing economy. Located on a farm about an hour's drive from São Paulo, it's light-years away from the concrete-wasteland vibe that pervades the country's capital. Like other Fasano properties, the resort's contemporary design bears the imprint of Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, who made use of wooden furnishings and natural light to seamlessly integrate the property into its lush surroundings. There are 27 deluxe apartments and 12 suites; boulevards lined with century-old trees encourage guests to embrace the natural beauty for which Brazil is famous. Other features include two 18-hole golf courses, a polo field, riding lessons, tennis courts, soccer fields, and a private heliport.

From $500
