Loved Uxua - we stayed first of all in Terraco do Ceu, a tall house with whitewashed walls, quirky antiques and a lovely roof terrace (with tiny plunge pool), perfect for a morning coffee watching the local cats snoozing on the rooftops. The house has a small kitchen with 2-ring gas hob, coffee machine, full-size fridge and ground-floor dining area.... More

Shh. Don't tell anyone about this magical place. UXUA is one of a kind, in all the best ways. It is far enough off the beaten path to feel like you are the first to discover it, and still a short drive and flight to Sao Paolo and the world. UXUA is beloved - by its talented owner, its knowledgable... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Uxua. Our suite was huge, well appointed, and faced the Quadrado, which I thought was fun. If you don't want to hear any music or chatter, then a suite in the garden of the hotel might be better. But watching the happenings on the square added an element of immersion and excitement that I... More

This is a very luxurious boutique hotel. Facing the Quadrado (the square) green, in the heart of the fishermen's village of Trancoso, you have the chance to stay in a house-like accommodation, enjoy great hotel services, including dining in your own villa. The villas have wonderful bedroom, with the best hotel mattress ever! The food is fresh and well prepared.... More

Our visit to Casa Uxua started at Puerto Seguro Airport. We were collected by one of the hotels drivers who brought us accross land passing groves of Papaya Trees, Pineapple Trees and coffee plantations to name but a few and it was a wonderful opportunity to see some of Brazil's wonderful country side. You can also travel a costal/ferry route... More

I spent 4 nights at the Uxua with my wife and some friends it was an incredible experience in genuine laid back Trancoso style but with a 5 star service when it came to dining and attention to detail. Great private beach bar located a ten minute walk from the hotel I will definately be cominh back soon.

Everything about this place is dreamy: from the beachy chic indoor-outdoor bungalows to the tree-covered pool area with monkeys swinging above to the insanely beautiful and delicious breakfast spread that arrives every morning to the restaurant (and homemade ice cream shop) on the colorful square to gym/game area which provided endless entertainment for a gang of small kids (and not...

Right on the Quadrado in Trancoso a group of cottages have been transformed with such care to this simply stunning collection of amazing suites. The hotels facilities are nestled around a beautiful garden and provide home from home comfort and amenities. Herbert Dass is an amazing host, feeling as you are his guest at his home

Uxua means "marvellous" in the Indian pataxo language. But how does one even begin to describe describe perfection? That's what you'll find here-- from the moment you step inside its incognito entrance, to the moment you unfortunately have to leave. You know that you will never be able to replicate the atmosphere, feelings and calm euphoria that this luxurious "hotel"... More
