Overview

UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa features ten unique casas which blend seamlessly into the historic center of Trancoso, a small fishing village on Brazil’s idyllic southern Bahian coast. Four casas are restored fishermen homes facing the 16th century town green called the Quadrado, while six others are hidden in a lush private garden. The casas were created by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods, reclaimed materials, and Brazilian antiques and art. The design blends rustic elements with contemporary comfort and roominess, and fuses in an innovative way indoor and outdoor living spaces to take advantage of a year-round, tropical climate.

Service is provided in friendly, Bahian style, including two restaurants specializing in traditional Bahian cuisine, a spa and gym, a unique swimming pool of healing aventurine crystals, and a spectacular beach lounge created from old fishing boats.

Location Summary
Lured by its idyllic seclusion and natural beauty, travelers for centuries have called the small Bahian fishing village of Trancoso paradise on earth. The historic town green overlooking the sea, known as the Quadrado, is the tranquil center of town life where natives gather and horses graze during the day, while during the evening candles alight and the atmosphere turns festive and romantic.

Directions to Hotel
To reach Trancoso, fly to Porto Seguro (multiple connections leave from cities such as Salvador and Sao Paulo daily). From November through February, many charter flights fly directly to Porto Seguro from Europe.

Trancoso is approximately 24 kilometers from Porto Seguro airport, which translates as an hour's drive due to the scenic, two-lane roads and a short river ferry crossing.

Highlights & Reviews

Fine Dining On Site
UXUA's kitchens offer Bahian cooking with a very regional emphasis, and presented with the same joy and pride which food is served in any local home. Ingredients include produce from UXUA’s own garden and other organic farms of Trancoso, as well as the freshest fish caught using traditional techniques.
Fine Dining Nearby
Trancoso offers tremendous variety in dining, running the gamut from salt-of-the-earth Bahian home cooking to the freshest sushi. Every phase of Trancoso’s history has contributed to a food culture which is considered one of the most interesting in all Brazil
Fitness Center
The fitness studio specializes in personalized classes of capoeira, traditional Bahian dance-inspired martial art which provides a spectacular aerobic and full-body workout.
Pool Outdoor
Heal thyself with some aquatic therapy, via a dip in UXUA's one-of-a-kind pool, created entirely from forty thousand specimens of unique green aventurine quartz.
Spa Facility
UXUA's Almescar Spa is about the luxury of local. UXUA's 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.
Beach
It's no question that Bahia = sun + sand + lush vegetation. UXUA brings that equation to life with its beautiful beachfront lounge, a mere 7-minute walk from the Quadrado.
Biking, Mountain
Because of Trancoso's size and accessible nature, bicycles are tailor-made for traversing its small roads and trails.
Boating
Sea kayaking. With 2 rivers in tiny Trancoso alone, canoeing is an ideal pastime while staying at UXUA.
Ecological Tourism
A full 60 percent of UXUA's seaside property is reserved for the use of some other very important guests: the area's sea turtles. Opened in collaboration with the local fishermen's association, the sea turtle sanctuary helps illustrate how serious UXUA is about upholding sustainable tourism and protecting local flora and fauna.
Fishing - Ocean
Visitors face plenty of options when planning to fish in Trancoso; to try to learn a native technique of net fishing, or even spear-fish, or to go out with a charter-boat.

Terravista Golf looms above the ocean on cliffs about 12 km from Trancoso. Golf carts and equipment are available for rental, and through exclusive arrangement UXUA guests enjoy member access with special rates

The area is rich in trails that cross rivers and plumb the forest depths, revealing to visitors the extent of the natural beauty that comprises southern Bahia.
Horseback Riding
Many local horses available for use of guests. Rides can be guided by local cowboys, and organized tours can be arranged along the beach, dirt road, or forest trails
Scuba Diving
An ideal way to commune with the creatures of the sea at Trancoso, where a confluence of rivers and coral reefs prove ideal for fishing or skin diving.
