Introducing Fasano Las Piedras, Punta del Este
FEB 08 2011

Fasano Luxury Hotels has just recently opened its new hotel Las Piedras in Punta del Este, Uruguay. This unique and hip resort has already been booked solid!
Fasano Luxury Hotels wanted a resort that stayed in tune with its natural geographic landscape—thus all the rock-like features. Even though the hotel and rooms look like chunks of rock, they are absolutely beautiful inside.

Las Piedras Fasano is part of a greater residential development with 205 villas designed by architect Isay Weinfeld with  rustic environmentally integrated in every detail.  A picturesque drive from the seaside highway into the rolling countryside is dotted with jagged rock formations and grassy dunes.

The lobby comes into view with exposed granite walls and low-flung roofline with reclaimed beam ceiling featuring a cozy lobby lounge arranged in a visual mix of chunky Italian furnishings and modernist mission-style design.   A hilltop Fasano dining room is laden in eclectic wood paneling and leather furnishings opening to panoramic terrace. Outside a free-form pool overlooks the horizon, connected to a series of outlying buildings home to a new spa and opposite an equestrian center with clubhouse and polo grounds.

Guests are provided use of a nearby boathouse and private beach infused with just the right amount of chic travelers to make it the next global hotel hotspot. Rooms are a creamy palette of hazelnut-colored walls lined in wood paneling with smoky leather headboards and hardwood floors throughout. 20 bungalows and 12 larger suite bungalows have added details of flagstone floors, expansive outdoor entertaining area and small bar with espresso machine and collection of dinnerware for in-room snacking between polo and hitting the beach clubs of Jose Ignacio.
