The Fasano Hotel Las Piedras, designed by Isay Weinfield, is like a heavenly dream that beamed down to Earth in the dramatic vistas of Punta del Este, Uruguay. Comfort and reprise charm inhabitants from its multitude of facilities. The space includes hotel cottages, private homes, spas, an equestrian center, polo fields and 3 km of beach that runs along the barren and rocky vegetation of the Arroyo Maldonado stream. The former owner lifted his home and an annex into this spectacular atmosphere where the restaurants, Las Piedras and the Restaurante Fasano along with an reception area now reside. The Las Piedra restaurant takes up an entire wing of the U-shaped building where guests are served coffee for breakfast and lunch in its terrace or open courtyard. The Fasano Restaurant is located at the highest point of the land which is highly accessible to the stunning views of the rugged landscape surrounding it. A pool was installed on higher ground where it takes advantage of being in a natural depression between the stones. A steel container was placed next to it to provide space for the changing rooms, lounge area and bar. This architectural paradise also includes a rectangular shaped spa that contains a treatment room, a wet sauna, a dry sauna and a relaxation suite all housed at the perimeter of the building with a small garden at the center.
