FROM SÃO PAULO
For many people, travelling is synonymous with resting.
They don't want to have to drive anywhere at lunchtime, to walk far to get to the beach, or to sleep in basic hotel rooms.
It is this type of tourist at whom resorts are aimed.
They are hotels integrated with nature, with so many leisure options that the tourist doesn't need to go out for anything: not even to eat or enjoy themselves.
Check out below the favorite resorts of eight noted Brazilians:
