For those seeking excellent service, 5-star luxury and bundles of Bahian character, you can do no better than Uxua Casa. This boutique hotel offering a stunning collection of 1-3-bedroom bohemian, ‘shabby chic’ cottages scattered around Trancoso’s UNESCO protected Quadrado, is a 1-minute walk from São João Batista church and an 8-minute walk from some of the most picturesque beaches in Brazil.
Style and storytelling are combined effortlessly in the design of the casas in this unique collection. Half of the Uxua casas date back 500 years to the founding of the village – each offering its guests a distinct personality that captures the echoes of the lives of previous inhabitants. The restoration work, carried out by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using reclaimed materials has created exquisite luxury spaces with an unmistakably Bahian, tropical vibe where guests can feel completely at home in this coastal paradise.
Each casa boasts a unique design concept and different features such as gardens, indoor and outdoor kitchens, plunge pools, terraces and thatched roofing. Guests of Uxua Casa also enjoy access to the charming beach bar fashioned from an old fishing boat, a restaurant serving gourmet cuisine, a fitness room, an outdoor pool lined with green aventurine quartz, and the Almescar Spa where guests can enjoy a variety of luxurious treatments inspired by the indigenous, African and hippy communities that have shaped the colourful history of Trancoso.
