Welcome to Babylon. Or Nirvana. No, wait … Eden? Wrong again. This is Hotel Fasano Boa Vista, 2,470 acres of sprawling farmland nestled just far enough away from civilization to allow a sense of deep relaxation to permeate. It’s a paradise blessed with two 18-hole golf courses, bold architecture, over 14 lakes, equestrian, fine Italian dining, and small essential flourishes like … helicopter service.
27 rooms and 12 suites meld Italian elements with contemporary Brazilian styling. Spaces are anchored with wide-plank hardwood floors and rustic brick walls, enjoying a tempered, minimal aesthetic. At dawn, wake in your pristine white bed and walk out your floor-to-ceiling glass door. There, witness long shadows retreating as the hot sun takes its place in the sky.
For the man or woman who doesn’t leave home without their clubs, two golf courses await the swish of coveted drivers. One course, by Randy Thompson, and another by Arnold Palmer are both equally technical and jaw-dropping in their own right. After, saunter over to the infinity pool for a soak, and wave goodbye to the sun once more, knowing you’ll see it again shortly.
