Uxua | Bahia, Brazil

Uxua | Bahia, Brazil

Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa lies between Atlantic rainforest and the sugary beaches of Trancoso – possibly the world's smartest fishing village. Brainchild of former Diesel creative director Wilbert Das, it pairs impossibly chic design with abundant local character. There are nine brightly painted casitas, each designed by local artists, littered with Bahian art and furniture handpicked in Minas Gerais. Some have private outdoor showers, Jacuzzis and plunge pools. Expertly-mixed caipirinhas roll from cocktail shaker to poolside lounger and the on-site spa employs some of the best hands in Bahia.

Butterfly House | Ilheus, Brazil

Butterfly House | Ilheus, Brazil

We get very overexcited when we discover a place like Butterfly House. Most guests arrive by boat from a nearby fishing village. That’s how things work in northern Brazil’s Maraú Peninsula.

The lodge sits amid pristine rainforest and opens onto warm sands and crashing surf. There are coral reefs and freshwater lakes to explore, and the surrounding jungle is home to marmosets, anteaters, armadillos and plenty of rare plant and birdlife. The village of Barra Grande is half an hours zoom up the beach on one of the lodge’s quads – fun for samba and sundowners.

The emphasis at Butterfly is on homespun charm and character. Its six rooms – all suites and private bungalows – are individually designed. Thatched grass roofs, Colombian bamboo and 300-year old Brazil nut wood meet warm interiors adorned with Moroccan textiles, French ceramics and local Bahian art.

This is tipped to be Brazil’s next hotspot, so get booking! We recommend 4-5 nights to make the most of it.
