UXUA Casa Hotel, Brazil



It’s unique, it’s colourful and it’s very, very cool. Creative director for international label Diesel, Wilbert Das, has set a fresh benchmark in relaxed glamour with the new UXUA Casa Hotel, overlooking Brazil’s legendary Bahian coastline. 
 
UXUA Casa Hotel 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 on the 16th century town green called the Quadrado, while six others sit in a lush 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, a unique swimming pool of healing aventurine crystals, and a spectacular beach lounge created from old fishing boats.

Perfect for: laid-back couples who are looking for gorgeous beaches, unique accommodations and a cool South American vibe.
