Sustainable tourism at its breathtaking best in Lima Duarte
We love...
the scale of owner Renato Machado's sustainable, social and ecological project. The amazing natural wonders that surround this incredible place will surprise you at every turn.

Several hours north of Rio’s teeming city streets is the dreamy Reserva do Ibitipoca; an eco-conscious bolthole in the state of Minas Gerais developed on 5,000 acres of former 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 TV-free suites feel decidedly intimate. Each maintains a traditional character cleverly mixed with luxurious furniture and linens, and chic bathrooms with clawfoot bathtubs and cosy, heated floors. Alternative accommodation is available in two spacious, uphill wooden bungalows.

Choose to dine privately or communally, which is a great way to meet other guests, and delve into the organic Brazilian cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are buffet affairs but come dinner it’s a set meal of three-courses showcasing the Reserva’s home-grown produce. However, special occasions may call for a dinner on “the beach,” a sandy area high on the mountain.

Owner Renato is mad about horses, so rides around the grounds are easily arranged, in addition to walks, treks, bike rides (electric and paddle), stand-up paddle boarding and electric car excursions. Otherwise, relax in the wood-fired outdoor Jacuzzi or spa’s hydromassage pool, sauna or enjoy a massage after the morning’s yoga session.

Bonus: the Reserva has a private airstrip.
