Flávio Marelim, a former restaurateur from Rio, and Nana Salles, a fashion-business veteran, found this quiet stretch of coastline an hour south of Trancoso in 2000 and built their dream house here. Two years later they began taking paying guests at two bungalows they designed. Word spread beyond Brazil; reservation requests poured in. One smitten billionaire booked the entire property for 21/2 years. After he left last summer the resort reopened with two more rooms. Both owners are exuberant hosts, and Marelim is an exceptional cook. Most of the produce—including papaya and cashews—is organically grown here, and the seafood is caught just offshore. There’s no phone, cell phone, Internet, or satellite-TV service, and nothing to do after dinner but lie in a hammock and watch the moon.
