Uxua Casa Hotel
Tucked away in the main 'Quadrado' Square of Trancoso, Uxua Casa Hotel remains one of the most sought-after boutique hotels in Brazil. The ten charming cottages, gardens and main house have been carefully designed to reflect Bahia's laid-back and fun-loving culture.
Rest and rejuvenation are high on the list of Uxua’s aims for its guests. From the calm and shady spa to the courtyard swimming pool lined with 40,000 green aventurine quartz stones, which are said to have healing qualities, every element of the property has been designed to add to this haven of peace. Yoga, capoeira and fitness classes can be taken in private or with other guests of the property and, a short walk from the lodge, a private beach-front pagoda and bar restored from a local fisherman’s lodge is a lovely, shady spot to take in the ocean views.
Uxua takes great pride in preserving local traditions and the property runs an ‘Artist in Casa’ programme to ensure the creative streak that has always run through the town is protected. Resident artists from around the world live at UXUA in order to create works of art using local inspiration and materials. This all adds to the bohemian atmosphere of Uxua that makes it so unique.
