For centuries, travelers have been calling the small Bahian fishing village of Trancoso "paradise on earth." And it's easy to see why. UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa is the place in the universe that makes you want to give up modern life and become a hut-to-hut coconut salesman.
Designer Wilbert Das has created ten unique casas, built and decorated by local artists. They used traditional building methods and recycled materials, but this is as humble a five-star resort as they come. Each casa is warm and rustic. Hammocks swing next to sleek Midcentury Brazilian furniture. The warm ocean water and native seaturtles are just five minutes away at the UXUA Beach Lounge.
UXUA's chefs offer a menu of organic Bahian cuisine and tropical drinks to be enjoyed poolside, seaside, or delivered directly to your casa. Local chefs are even available to help you cook in your fully-equipped kitchen. Juices are a specialty and many come from fruit picked from UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa's own fruit trees.
UXUA’s Almescar Spa offers Bahia’s first vichy treatment suite, featuring five water jets flowing from carved eucalyptus trunks in a tropical wet room with views over treetops, making full-body masks and organic oil treatments a true indulgence.
If you're feeling energetic, UXUA fitness studio specializes in personalized classes of capoeira, a traditional Bahian dance-inspired martial art which provides a spectacular aerobic and full-body workout.
