The wind blew strong as the three-month-pregnant Kim held on tight to her man.
Earlier last week, while the rest of Rio de Janeiro celebrated Carnival, celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were in more of a spectator mood, as they looked on from their glass balcony at the Fasano Hotel.
The 89-room hotel is part of the family-owned Grupo Fasano , which has hotels in São Paulo and Punta del Este and Boa Vista, as well as a number of restaurants around the country. Celebs like Madonna, Beyonce and P. Diddy have all favored the Fasano in the past, and Kimye certainly looked happy with their choice. Could that be.....a....show of genuine happiness on Kanye's face? Kind of astonishing for a guy who tends not to smile for the cameras so much as contemptuously sneer in their vague direction.
Rooms at the hotel all have ocean views, and were designed by Philippe Starck with a 60s Bossa Nova theme.
Knowing how Kim & Kanye like to roll, we're going to assume they opted for a Deluxe Suite, which goes for around $3,690/night, and features hardwood floors, a giant living room with all-white couches (pictured), walk-in closets, and a marble bathroom with a bathtub overlooking the ocean.

Brazil is hot and its going to get hotter in the next decade, thanks to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. That's why we're having journalist Scott Mitchem, who has been traveling to Brazil for years, give us the lowdown on the country’s evolving hotel scene as well as its top players. This week he’s highlighting some of the market’s more interesting developments, starting with what’s new from the country’s premier luxury hospitality company, which is actually expanding outside of Brazil.
If you are familiar with the existing Fasano Hotels - the flagship in São Paulo and the follow-up in Rio de Janeiro – you understand the excitement surrounding the group’s first international property. The family’s century-old reputation as Brazil’s finest restaurateurs, and now one of the world’s top luxury hotel brands is well established among South America’s tastemakers, which made Punta del Este the obvious place to begin the brand’s international expansion.
