Brazil's off-the-radar Maraú Peninsula may be hard to

Chloe, the young English owner, has decorated them
with stylish global finds and she offsets your hedonism with
solar-powered showers, water recycling programmes and community
projects. You can be shamelessly idle, flitting from hammock to
daybed while you think about maybe trying a spot of kayaking,
paddleboarding or surfing.
