UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa is one of the reasons one should visit the Bahia State of Brazil. Enjoy barefoot luxury, one-of-a-kind sustainable design, and genuine warm hospitality.

The 11 unique Casitas have been restored and designed by the Diesel creative director Wilbert Das, with help from local artists. Some Casitas date back as far as 500 years! Choose a one, two or three bedroom Casita or the Treehouse - all made from reclaimed materials. 

Visit the Beach Club, and see why UXUA's Beach Bar is named one of the best in the world. End the day at the spa, inspired by the natural Bahian elements - mangroves, rainforest, sea, and sand. Make sure to try the Almescar Tree Oil Massage, the hotel's signature. All spa products are hand-made from coconut oil, shea butter, Brazil nuts, and dark cocoa grown in the gardens on-site.

WHY WANDER

Trancoso is a Porto Seguro district in the state of Bahia, Brazil, with rainforest, mangroves, and over 25 km of white sand beaches along the Atlantic coast. 

Visit the Barra Do Rio Trancoso Beach for UXUA Praia Bar and see where the ocean meets the Trancoso River. The Rio Da Barra Beach, only 4 km away, is perfect for canoeing and the Rio Verde Beach is a special hiking destination, with its diverse flora and fauna. Patimirim Beach is perfect if you are looking for something remote, and Itaquena Beach is great for surfing. For beach bars and a lively atmosphere, wander over the The Praia dos Nativos beach.

INDULGE IN

Gourmet iced cold treats made on the premises, like the chocolate & Bahian pepper ice cream (from cacao and hot peppers grown in UXUA's garden), fresh organic popsicles made with coconut water and pulp, or the Tapioca ice cream sandwiches. Coconut lovers will really enjoy the UXUA Caipicoco, a take on the iconic Caipirinha. For dinner, try the mixed seafood and black rice dish in tomato-basil and pitanga-fruit sauce. 

GETTING THERE

Fly into Porto Seguro and take an hour long drive to Trancoso. Rio de Janiero is a 70-minute fight away.
