An “Earthly Paradise”. Thus for ages travellers have dubbed the small Bahian fishing village of Trancoso, lured by its heavenly seclusion and natural beauties. Uxua Casa Hotel has been completed as a tribute to the area, with 9 distinctive casas built by local artisans and available for guests to enjoy for their vacations. The variety of accommodations at Uxua Casa Hotel ranges from traditional 1-3 bedroom fisherman houses opposite the town’s historic Quadrado, to a sleekly opulent but ecologically conscious tree-house constructed completely from recycled wood and floating above an extraordinary flowering garden. Extensive deluxe service available to all guests, while complete self-catering is available for additional privacy. The casas are complemented by a swimming pool, a spa, and reserved sofas at the nearby Uxua beach lounge. One need never be without the requisite hint of luxury, even in the middle of a secluded fishing village in a tropical setting. All 9 Uxua casas have been designed and decorated by Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans and artists, and boast features like custom-made and locally sourced furnishings and antiques, Bahian artwork/décor, full kitchens, indoor/outdoor living room, and indoor/outdoor bathrooms complete with custom-made wood, copper and stone fittings. Some casas have private gardens, plunge pools, Jacuzzi, hammocks, terraces, and outdoor seating on the historic Quadrado. Amenities in the casas include parking, iPod docking stations, high-speed WiFi, and much more.
Uxua is located just off the historic village green of Trancoso, a luxuriant hilltop overlooking the sea on an unspoiled stretch of Brazilâ€™s Bahian coast.

|Estúdio and Quintal da Glória (1 suite):||Description: • The “Picasso” of UXUA’s casas, Estudio features acres of space, strong furniture and rustic local accents that meld to form the perfect Bahian “artist’s studio”. What that means: lush greenery afforded by an indoor/outdoor bathroom featuring a large vertical garden, sinks carved from tree trunks found in the UXUA garden, double-wooden shower heads, and one wall opening onto a mammoth veranda and private garden. There’s more: walk-in closets, mini-kitchen, private patio, and unparalleled access to the “healing” waters of UXUA’s one-of-a-kind green aventurine quartz pool – a cool oasis at daytime and a beacon of muted light in the evening. • Tailor-made for honeymooners, this privacy-minded one-bedroom apartment appears cocooned in the sheltering arms of a mango tree. Need a place to sunbathe without fear of the paparazzi? An open balcony with covered eating area and sofa, with view of UXUA’s gleaming aventurine stone pool, fits the bill. Desire a place to shower a deux, replete with views of the surrounding greenery? A bathroom with double shower heads and featuring open views across the treetops does the trick. A mini-kitchen, walk-in closets and pristine canopy bed round out this pretty picture.

|Zé e Zilda (3 suites):||Description: Zé e Zilda - For a strong shot of Trancoso, neat, guests can do little better than this traditional fishermen’s house that faces the Quadrado and is capable of sheltering up to six – ideal for visiting families or friends who simply cannot bear to be parted. A fully equipped kitchen and adjacent sitting room and bar hew nicely to that theme, while a rustic table in front of the casa and in the Quadrado turns al fresco dinner parties into a reality. Two bedrooms sit in the main house, one on the second floor, with the third an independent garden suite with cushion-strewn outdoor patio. All rooms bear UXUA’s trademark airiness and locally sourced home décor. Finally, ensuite bathrooms ensure maximum privacy amid the housemates.|

|Pedrinho, Seu João, Seu Irenio and Casa da Árvore (1 suite):||Description: • Pedrinho -The yin to the other houses’ yang, Seu Pedrinho embodies the bougainvillea blossoms that festoon its exterior and inspired its brilliant magenta color. The interior is no less colorful: airy, bright spaces bordered by wooden floors, a bar, private garden, and views of the grassy Quadrado from every room. The casa features two bedrooms – one with a double shower – and a spacious bedroom with canopy bed. Best of all, living room and kitchen open directly onto the Quadrado, via the shelter lent by the area’s oldest bougainvillea bower. Guests can invite friends to sit at the rustic table in front of the casa and admire their blossom-strewn house. • Casa da Árvore - It’s eco-consciousness meets summer palace meets Robinson Crusoe. This elevated treehouse fantasy sprawls across three levels, with its “green” credentials coming from the recycled wood that makes up its walls, its traditionally applied thatched roof, and the organic materials scattered throughout its interior. Yet despite its rustic appearance, this is no ascetic hippie enclave: little luxuries (and big surprises) are hidden throughout, including large covered veranda/al fresco living room with hammock and bar, the bathroom’s double shower, and spa tub on the outdoor deck. Guests shouldn’t miss the hanging swing underneath the casa, a perfect site for a private sundowner with a significant other. • Seu João - Appearances can deceive. What at first looks like a fishermen’s bungalow transforms upon entering into a gleaming, bright hideaway, worthy of any million-dollar music mogul. One entire wall of the house opens up and reveals views of a lush private courtyard and deck, crowned with the casa’s own swimming pool and hydro-massage Jacuzzi. Private patio, outdoor shower, and rustic pergola, poolside, check all the boxes epitomizing the perfect Bahian lifestyle: bringing what’s outdoors to the indoors, and then back again.|

|Nozinho (2 suites):||Description: •A unique casa, with UXUA’s typical rustic-modernism exchanged in this instance for a playful abundance of color and light. Nozinho sports sofa-fuls of light-toned throw pillows, an impressive yet welcoming dining area and scores of homey details. Tucked into a residential alley at the rear of UXUA’s garden, Nozinho includes a private gate and parking, a large kitchen and massive outdoor eating area and private garden. |

|Eugênia and Gulab Mahal (2 suites):||Description: • Eugênia - The most palatial of UXUA’s casas, Eugenia gets all the angles right. Garden location amid masses of verdant greenery? Check. Outdoor dining terrace for al fresco dinner parties? Check. Master suite with warehouse-sized bathroom, replete with antique tub? Check. Add overarching views of UXUA’s private gardens, a second bedroom suite with private balcony, indoor/outdoor kitchen, bright, airy spaces and the surrounding cocoon of trees – indeed, some poke through the roof – and you’ve got the grande dame of the UXUA property, christened after one of the most prominent of the casa’s trees. Of course, this grande dame loves green: with some surprising eco-conscious touches including a sofa covered with canvas material recycled from Amazonian truck covers. • Gulab Mahal - Named after the Indian-inspired additions contributed by its recent “hippie” owners, Gulab Mahal is a fusion of Portuguese and South Asian, with a generous dash of its native Bahian thrown in for good measure. This two-bedroom, traditional fishermen’s house boasts carved hardwood windows and doors and even a raised mezzanine “meditation” area, plus tiered gardens, indoor/outdoor kitchen and stunning views of Trancoso’s historic Quadrado. In short: it’s a history lesson of immigration to Trancoso, from the Portuguese Jesuits in the 1500s to the international “hippies” of the 20th century.|

Founded by a Jesuit community in the 16th Century the village hasn’t lost its irresistible appeal, with today’s Quadrado Historico as the village’s lively heart.
