UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa , Brazil

Authenticity is the greatest luxury a visit to Brazil's picturesque and historic Bahia state can offer.

And no place delivers the experience like Trancoso's Quadrado, its car-free, UNESCO-protected town square.

Half of UXUA's casas here date back 500-years to the village's founding. They were restored by designer Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans using traditional techniques and reclaimed materials.


These casas have a soul, each with legends and family history, every detail uniquely crafted by caring hands. UXUA's rustic beach lounge, Almescar Spa, Quadrado restaurant and 5-star service complete the perfect holiday.

Seu Irênio

Legend goes that Seu Irênio burned the musky resin of almescar trees each evening in front of his large, white casa on the Historic Quadrado, hypnotising children with stories and performing tricks, gaining him the affectionate nickname ‘the magician of almescar’. The warmth felt for Irênio by the community inspired a very loving restoration of his home by local artisans.
