Gilson Machado Neto

Brazil’s Minister of Tourism

Our mission is to work on the development of tourism, offering, among other things, supporting legislature for those who opt to bet on our country.


"Like I always say: to be Brazilian is to be part of an incredible destiny. It's to live where the World dreams of taking a vacation! 
To be Minister of Tourism in Brazil at such an important moment is, at the same time, a great privilege and an enormous challenge. 
Tourism in Brazil has all the ingredients to become an important pillar of our economy. No other country in the world has the natural beauty like we have here. Our landscapes are unique, our tourism potential is extraordinary and our hospitality gets the seal of approval of almost all foreign visitors. Tourism is fast money for the economy!  
 
For the first time in our history, Brazil has a president with vision who is a strong supporter of the tourism industry stakeholders and sector as a whole. President Jair Messias Bolsonaro's Government works with concrete measures and not just words. These measures have been praised by the Secretary General of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), Zurab Pololikashvili, during his visit to Brazil in 2020. He recognized our potential and stated that "the world needs to discover the beauty of Brazil”. 

Our mission is to work on the development of tourism, offering, among other things, supporting legislature for those who opt to bet on our country. In addition, it is necessary to invest in tourism infrastructure, promotion of our destinations and training of the labor force, so that more and more tourists, especially foreigners, visit Brazil. We have been visiting all Brazilian states and listening to people, to understand their realities and their needs. At the same time, we have established direct communication channels with the tourist trade, businessmen and other leaders, because they are the ones who invest in the sector, generating employment and income for our population. Only this combination of actions and efforts will make tourism stronger in Brazil."

Fátima Bezerra

Governor of Rio Grande do Norte state in Brazil

By themselves these numbers already guarantee the strong support of the state government for the implementation of the project.


“With the investment of about US $ 1.5 billion and the creation of approximately 400 direct jobs and 4,000 indirect ones these will be the greatest legacies that the Eco Estrela Resort Project will leave in Rio Grande do Norte. By themselves these numbers already guarantee the strong support of the state government for the implementation of the project. Along with this is the tourist promotion of the destination of Formosa Bay and the entire region, bringing the tourism of excellence and great investment opportunities for Brazil. This is the first investment of the group Six Senses in South America and starting from Rio Grande do Norte brings perspectives of other investments such as the Eco Estrela Resort to our state. As governor, I can assure you that we will not measure efforts to carry out this and any other project that brings benefits to the people of Rio Grande do Norte.”

Ana Maria da Costa

The State Secretary of Tourism of Rio Grande do Norte

An enterprise of the proportions and splendor of the Eco Estrela Resort is a fundamental piece for Brazilian tourism... .


“The Rio Grande do Norte is a power in tourism, we combine characteristics and differentials that no other state of Brazil, besides extremely hospitable people. An enterprise of the proportions and splendor of the Eco Estrela Resort is a fundamental piece for Brazilian tourism, not only for Rio Grande do Norte, and for the Northeast. The project of the Six Senses group, a pioneer in Latin America, brings a scale that can change the history of the RN; attracting a new profile of tourist, much more concerned with the environment, sustainability and with a special look for culture. The project is to occupy an area of 2,570 hectares in front of the sea of Formosa Bay (RN). From the point of view of economic development, I am sure that Eco Estrela will help spread the positive image of the RN, attract new investors and other ventures of this magnitude to our state. We know that all Europe already knows other beaches on our coast as paradisiacal destinations. With a venture of this size Formosa Bay will become another famous international destination.”

Camila Melo

Mayor of BaÍa Formosa

Growing with responsibility and sustainability should be the target of any enterprise, thus promoting the necessary economic growth, and guaranteeing the preservation of the environment.


“Baía Formosa is a touristic village privileged by numerous natural attractions, incredible beaches, enjoyable climate and with a huge potential for further development. Growing with responsibility and sustainability should be the target of any enterprise, thus promoting the necessary economic growth, and guaranteeing the preservation of the environment. I see this ability in the Eco Estrela project, which with all its sustainable and responsible policy will bring direct and indirect employment opportunities to our citizens, thus contributing to the progress of Baia Formosa.

Investing in tourism in our community along with the Eco Estrela Project means developing qualified labor, providing opportunities for the expansion of local food businesses and services, generating improvements in public health, sanitation, access routes and public safety, thus nurturing benefits and quality of life that will revert to our population. We will walk together, investing responsibly in the unforgettable experience that we will provide to our tourists, reaffirming its real meaning: comfort, tranquility and especially happiness.”

Leonlene Aguiar

Director General of IDEMA

We welcome sustainable tourism ventures as they contribute to the development of our land.


“The Rio Grande do Norte offers great potential for tourism, especially for those developing in the inviting coastal zone. There are natural sandy beaches, dune fields, atlantic forest, important estuaries and coastal lagoons that arouse the curiosity of people all over the world. These spaces are real heritage. We welcome sustainable tourism ventures, as they will contribute to the development of our land, where there is a public policy for the promotion of the Costa Branca Polo and the Costa das Dunas Polo, within the Tourism Development Program. IDEMA must exercise its role of control, licensing and supervising, ensuring the harmony of the projects with the natural characteristics of the coastal zone, bringing legal certainty and sustainability that favor the scenario that fosters employment and income with environmental balance.”

Wyllys Farkatt Tabosa

Through integral training, it prepares citizens connected with the environmental, political and cultural needs of the modern world.

Six Senses Interior Design

The Six Senses Formosa Bay interior design project will be developed by the most renowned and prominent architectural firms in Brazil. The concept will be based on Vernacular materials and Brazilian furniture from modernist designers such as Joaquim Tenreiro, Jorge Zalszupin, and Sérgio Rodrigues (some of their work was displayed in international museums - the Campana brothers or Claudia Moreira Sales). A special touch from more recent designers such as Jader Almeida, Zanini de Zanini, Arthur Casas, and the Studio Mula Preta will add a refreshing scent. Brazilian flavor and the Brazilian beach lifestyle will be the main ingredient in the interior design of the hotel and branded residences.
