When Life's a Beach
A cloudless sky. Ripples of sunshine glinting off a cyan sea. Live bossa nova vocals surfing the salty breeze. Faultless service to meet your every need. Welcome to Faena Beach.
Make the most of summer lounging under Faena’s photogenic red-and-white striped parasols and plush cabanas set on 100,000 square feet of powder-sand paradise exclusive to hotel guests. Soak up the sunshine as butlers dote on you with a selection of magazines, sunscreen and glasses of chilled water to keep you cool. When you slip into the water for a swim, don’t be surprised to find your sunglasses spotlessly shined or a butler readily waiting to wash the sand off your feet to keep your lounger spotless and comfortable.
On the weekend, local bands liven up the afternoon with two-hour music sets right on the sand. Enjoy Brazilian beats and pop hits while sipping on signature cocktails and frozen elixirs like the summery Silver Lining, mixed with Grey Goose vodka, fresh-pressed grapefruit and lemon juice, muddled raspberry, a spring of rosemary, and a dash of soda. Or kick back with a Kicked-Up Margaritas and icy Froseladas featuring Absolut Elyx and Domaine Jarras Royal Rosé.
A day of fun in the sun can work up an appetite. Sate your craving with a poke bowl of Bigeye Tuna tossed with goma wakame, soybeans, Japanese pickles, and grilled shiitake or dig into a hearty wood-fired skirt steak slathered in chimichurri. When pastels paint the sky, keep the revelry going at Faena’s alfresco Sun Bar with craft spirits and live music under the boughs of a magnificent banyan tree.
