Why Stay At Fasano Las Piedras
Fasano's first property outside Brazil has a design sensibility that captures both the tranquility of the Uruguayan countryside and the glamour of the nearby white-sand beaches.
When the cult-favorite Fasano Hotel brand opened its new spa retreat in Punta del Este, in-the-know jet-setters started packing their bags. Like the company's urban properties in Rio and São Paulo, Las Piedras is a serious design destination thanks to Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, who opted for cowhide walls and sheepskin rugs in 32 guest casas that dot 1,800 acres of grassland. Though set away from the beach, the resort, which faces a bird-filled estuary and pine forest, is poised between three worlds—bustling Punta del Este, stylish Jose Ignacio, and the quiet countryside. It also shines in every season: in summer (November through February), the white-sand beaches of Punta del Este are a short shuttle-ride away; in spring and fall, guests spend the days on horseback rides and bike tours and evenings in hotel-hosted tango lessons; and in winter, the two restaurants are cozy gathering spots for travelers who prefer to enjoy the rustic estancia without the well-heeled crowds.
To avoid the 1.5-hour drive from Montevideo to Punta del Este, call the hotel a week in advance and reserve a helicopter transfer direct from Montevideo's Carrasco International Airport.
Don't miss the Carpaccio di Lomo (delicate slices of pork tenderloin drizzled with a citrus caper sauce and topped with pine nuts and olives) at the hotel's Fasano restaurant, a stone farmhouse-turned-eatery.

Why We Love Punta del Este
Glitzy nightlife + luxurious hotels. Miles of beautiful beaches + endless sports activities. You can do it all, or nothing at all, in Punta del Este.
Beach Basics: Each of Punta del Este's beaches has a different character. La Barra, a narrow, beach house-lined strip of sand closest to Las Piedras, is popular among families; Playa Brava, the popular, see-and-be-seen beach, offers spectacular sunsets and people-watching; Playa Mansa's deep waters are great for fishing; nearby Jose Ignacio is stylish, quiet, and exclusive; and Playa Solana is preferred by families for its quiet shallows.
Must-See Museum: On a cliff above the blue Atlantic, Casapueblo was built by Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró as a residence, museum, and artist's workshop. The patios, overlooks, cupolas, and winding staircases are almost as interesting as the art that hangs on the museum walls. Tickets for two $10.
