Estancia Rio Acima
Reviewed 27 March 2014

If only I could stay at Estancia Rio Acima all the time! Magical waterfalls, delightful saunas and hot tubs, delicious food and such a welcoming atmosphere it really feels like home... they even have lovely dogs who would love to join you if you fancy going walking in the beautiful countryside, and the most gorgeous little cats. Can't recommend Marcia and Forest's wonderful pousada more highly - nectar for the soul.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the private hot tub!

in the middle of nature, accommodation and wonderful food, a paradise! Perfect for rest and walking, this guesthouse is a real dream. I recommend! With rustic decor but with all amenities, is the ideal place to be with friends or family, very clean and cozy place. I've been many times and will always want to return.

First of all I'm a big traveler. And I've never written a description or review on trip advisor, until this one. And the reason I'm writing it, is because I'd like everybody in this planet to experience what I experienced.

The guesthouse is calm and simple looking as a normal Inn you'd go with a great quality, very clean, etc. but the reception is like a 6 stars hotel. The food is all with the best quality products you can imagine, most of it, if not all is organic. The cook is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Everything I ate there was so freaking good. Marcia the owner, and her husband are very receptive.

The nature that surrounds that guesthouse, is something I will fail to describe. It's so beautiful that my words will fail me. I uploaded some pictures, but even the pictures will fail to show you, what you will see if you go there.

Even though I did not go for meditation purposes, I found out that the gueshouse is often used by meditation groups, for its peacefulness and silence.

I don't want to make this a letter, but I'm also sure I'm forgetting key stuff that I should probably be writing. But just know that you will not regret going there, and the quality is definetely. 6 stars!

Thank you so much Marcia, for being very nice to me and my girlfriend, and I look forward to the day I will bring my whole family there =) =D

This place is absolutely amazing! You can relax by the river, listening to the sound everywhere in the property. All the cottages are near the river with great views from the windows. You can have a hot sauna and them refresh in the waterfall. I recommend this hotel for everyone that love Nature. You can spot animals like racums, tucanos and all sort of birds. The view from the deck is incredible and you can relax listening to good Brazilian music and jazz. For the yoga aficionados, you can practice in a brand new room.
The food is great, and there is always a vegetarian choice.
Márcia and Forrester are always there to help you and you can't leave without listening to their stories.

Room Tip: The cottage in the "island" has an ofuro bath tube and offers you more privacy
