Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa lies between Atlantic rainforest and the sugary beaches of Trancoso in Brazil – possibly the world’s smartest fishing village turned mega beach hot spot. Brainchild of former Diesel creative director Wilbert Das, Uxua pairs impossibly chic design with abundant local character within the unmatched authenticity of Brazil’s northeastern coast.
The days are calm with culture and the UNESCO village center but the nights come to life in this sleepy town with restaurants, music and simply all things Brazilian!
Uxua homes are nine brightly painted casitas, each designed by local artists, littered with Bahian art and furniture handpicked in Brazil’s colonial stronghold, Minas Gerais. Only some have private outdoor showers, Jacuzzis and plunge pools but all are absolutely to-die-for in their nature. Expertly-mixed caipirinhas roll from cocktail shaker to poolside lounger and the on-site spa employs some of the best hands in Bahia.
A visit to Uxua can be for many reasons. Perhaps you’re looking to complement some time in the urban jungle or Rio with a more upscale beach experience? Or, perhaps you want to complete your journey through Bahia’s most well known and esteemed beaches. Either way, Trancoso is an absolute must when it comes to Brazilian beach and comfort travel. Uxua is simply what will take you there in style.
