The Infamous Hotel Balcony in Brazil
As I continue my quest to get celebrity stories that we all kind of know about documented in one place, I thought I would do a quick post on this hotel’s balcony.
Now, even if you think you have no idea what I’m referring to, chances are you probably do. You’ve seen this hotel’s balcony at LEAST once in your life, but…probably a lot more than that. (Rihanna, above, in Sept 2011)
I did some digging to see if someone already compiled all these same balcony sightings in one place and I found two pages that had like 4–5 different celebrities pictured here but I knew it was more than that. Like.. a lot more. (Beyonce, above in February, 2010)
Kim and Kanye have been here together a few times, pictured above in February 2013.
They even stayed at the same time as Will Smith, and were seen talking and taking pics from each others balconies, above.
P. Diddy was spotted there in 2009 as well…
And how could I forget Britney Spears and her family on a trip to Brazil in 2011?
And of course there’s Shakira back in June 2013:
I’m happy to see that for this room specifically, the hotel did not move the plant or the lampshade even an inch in the two years that have passed since our girl Rih was there in 2011:
Also in 2011, the absolute power duo supermodel Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady came by and stayed here:
One of my absolute favorite pictures on this balcony, taken in 2012… Katy Perry, thank you for this:
Lady Gaga came by and showed Brazil love in 2012:
We have the legendary Diana Ross here in 2013:
And we have One Direction making an appearance in 2014:
Even though it seems like this hotel balcony’s paparazzi hey-day was from 2010–2014, we see Candice Swanepoel there in 2017:
While I haven’t seen the newest generation of models here yet, it looks like the OG supermodels still frequent this hotel on occasion, as Alessandra Ambrosio was here in 2016 (with our favorite plant-lampshade combo making a guest appearance as well):
And there’s Ian Somerhalder hanging out here in 2012:
And he liked it so much he came back in 2014:
Also, I have no way to prove this 100%, but I’m pretty sure these pictures of Adriana Lima were taken from this balcony. All I know is they were taken in her home country of Brazil but after finding all these pics I swear I know that white curtain and wood panel detailing anywhere LMAO.
Sorry these are small – theyre super hard to find online. Couldnt find any photo creds either…
Anddddddd we have Colleen Rooney here, and theres that plant-lampshade combo again!!
Also there’s David Beckham:
And Kate Moss has been here! In 2014 she was pictured on the hotel’s rooftop pool/bar area.
Don’t know how it took me this long in the post to mention this one, but John Legend and Chrissy Teigen were here in 2015:
And back in 2012, Jennifer Lopez stopped by..
And honestly…? That probably doesn’t even cover all of the sightings here. Those were all I could find after a few days of gathering and searching but, I doubt thats all of them. I’ll throw one more in here before signing off, Avril Lavigne in 2011:
And those were really all I could find but like I said I doubt this is all of them. If you’re curious on which hotel this is, it’s the Hotel Fasano in Rio de Janeiro. I think it’s past its celebrity prime nowadays, but it was definitely a hot spot for them in the early 2010s.
I have a few articles about the hotel you guys might be interested in as well…
