For beach chic of the Etro-and-Havaianas variety, try a new small hotel, Etnia Clube de Mar (; suites from $541), in Bahia, Brazil, close to the hip village of Trancoso. If this waterfront address is anything like the original Pousada Etnia, which has the village location, then reckon on impeccable food and loveable owner-hosts (ex-fashion industry) who share “the scene” with guests.
