UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa

Organic Materials

All 10 casas have been designed and decorated by Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods, reclaimed and organic materials, and Brazilian antiques and art. The rustic elements fuse with contemporary design, with open, airy rooms and a merging of indoor/outdoor living spaces. Featured in design magazines worldwide, the innovative aesthetic has been coined rustic modernism.

Eco-friendly

The Fisherman houses

UXUA’s casas range from restored 1-3 bedroom fisherman houses facing the town’s historic Quadrado, to a sleekly opulent but ecologically-conscious treehouse and other innovative homes hidden in a lush garden of nearly six thousand square meters. They vary in size from 90 to over 230 square meters.

All houses have kitchens, private gardens, indoor/outdoor living rooms, open-air bathrooms, king-size beds, wireless internet, satellite television. Some casas include private plunge pools, jacuzzis, hanging terraces, as well as private dining space on the historic Quadrado.

Trancoso Brazil..

UXUA Casa Hotel is located in Trancoso, Brazil, a historic fishing village nestled along the coastline in the south of Bahia. The hotel has no signage and merges harmoniously into the village.

Soap and Cosmetics

UXUA offers its guests soaps and cosmetics developed for the hotel locally and featuring plants native to the region, especially rare components such as almescar, sourced from the Atlantic rainforest and typically used by native Pataxó in traditional medicine.

Spa Philpsophy

Spectacular biodiversity, centuries of herritage of Pataxó Indians, African slaves, Jesuit missionaries, and even 20th century hippies all combine to influence their exclusive range of spa treatments and products.

Almescar

Prized by Pataxó Indians for centuries and indigenous only to southern Bahia and the Amazon – almescar trees produce a pure, highly bioactive resin which is their signature ingredient. With restorative qualities and an alluring musky scent, almescar is that most elusive element offering authentic and effective organic treatments.

Spa range & treatments

Their hand-made range of spa products include other native ingredients such as 100% virgin coconut oil, shea butter, Brazil nuts, pitanga and assorted fruits, pink pepper seeds, fresh palm oil, and dark cocoa grown in their own gardens.
Some of their signature therapies:

  • Relaxing Almescar Oil Massage
  • Moonbath Pre-Sun Body Scrub and Hydrating Massage (in vichy treatment suite, with fresh coconut or passion fruit)
  • After-Sun Skin Repair with Fresh Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Reflexology with Almescar
  • Bahian Hot Stone Massage with Almescar Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage with Essential Oil of Ginger (option of Cinnamon, Rosemry, Lime, or Cloves)
  • Almescar Facial
  • Bahian Cacao Facial

Capoeira Classes

Capoeira is a martial-art inspired dance form. It originates in Bahia, and remains key to this region's cultural identity. They love to share it with you in personalised classes which are a great all-over-body workout accompanied by live, traditional music. 100% of class fee is added to their monthly support of Trancoso’s academy Capoeira Sul da Bahia, and guests are welcome to visit the school and join their daily lessons, which through UXUA's support are provided free to hundreds of local youth since 2006.

Yoga

Classes of yoga, pilates, and even Brazilian forro dancing (much-loved in Trancoso) are UXUA specialties, at spa or beach.

Beach Fun

While there are very few finer pursuits in Trancoso than laying on a perfect beach under bright sunshine, visitors are tempted each day by countless ways to enjoy the beauty and culture of the area.

Aventurine Quartz Pool

Heal yourself with some aquatic therapy, via a dip in UXUA’s one-of-a-kind pool. The lake-like creation is composed entirely of 40,000 specimens of unique green aventurine quartz, a native Bahian stone considered by many to have powerful healing qualities and reign among the most therapeutic minerals in the world.
