Bahia – Uxua Casa Hotel
The hotel UXUA Casa has ten distinct houses, which harmoniously blend with the historical center of Trancoso. Among them, four that belonged to fishermen in the 16th century and were restored to be integrated into the hotel. Two restaurants at the hotel serve typical local cuisine. UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa features 10 exclusive houses that perfectly adhere to the historical center of Trancoso, a small fishing village located on the idyllic coast of southern Bahia.
Four of the houses are restored fishermen’s villas with fronts facing the Quadrado, a green area dating from the 16th century, while the other six are dotted around a lush private garden. The houses were created by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional methods of construction, recycled materials, art and Brazilian antiques. The design combines rustic elements with contemporary comfort and spacious environments, innovatively blending the indoor and outdoor environments to maximize the use of the tropical climate throughout the year.
The services available, always in the warm style of Bahia, include two restaurants specializing in traditional local cuisine, a spa and gym, an exclusive pool with aventurine crystals with medicinal properties and a fantastic lounge on the beach built using old fishing boats. Without a doubt, Bahia is sun + sand + amazing vegetation. The UXUA realizes this equation with its beautiful beachfront lounge, just seven minutes walk from the Quadrado.
With spacious wooden sofas and cushions and gazebos with flat roof, the UXUA Beach Bar was built from abandoned fishing boats that had been in place for years. Private showers, patio dining and the river port of Trancoso were built to accommodate and protect the Atlantic Mangroves near the bar.
