Several hours north of Rio’s teeming city streets is the dreamy Reserva do Ibitipoca; a sustainable bolthole in the state of Minas Gerais developed on old farmland.
Run with irresistible (and contagious) passion for nature, the local community and culture, the Reserva immerses you in its stunning surroundings. Adjacent to Ibitipoca State Park, the exclusive suites feel decidedly intimate.
Each maintains a traditional character cleverly mixed with luxurious furniture and linens, and chic bathrooms. Choose to dine privately or communally, which is a popular choice and great way to meet other guests, and delve into the excellent organic Brazilian cuisine. Special occasions may call for a dinner on “the beach,” a sandy area high on the mountain. If you really want to arrive in style you can land your plane on the Reserva’s private airstrip.
