It was a risky proposition for engineer Pedro Marques to quit his career to open a 23-room eco-retreat on a sleepy beach along Brazil’s Alagoan coast, north of Bahia. But the gamble has paid off in spades. The hotel wows with eucalyptus columns and natural wood and brick interiors, all of which reinforce the indoor-outdoor aesthetic that sets the retreat apart. Environmental responsibility is emphasized: staffers are instructed in conservation techniques to avoid disturbing the nearby preserve.

Room to Book:

Villa No. 1 for its private pool and Japanese ofuro tub.

Insider Tip:

Order a cataplana, a clam-shaped copper vessel crammed with steamed local seafood, at the hotel’s Kaamo restaurant, with renowned Brazilian chef César Santos at the helm.
