This was the most spectacularly beautiful property we have ever stayed at, and we've done a great deal of travelling! We were in the treehouse which is over-the-top romantic and gorgeously furnished. But the whole place is perfection in design. Everywhere your eye rests is a montage of carefully constructed eye candy. We were there off-season, which made the town... More

I was in Uxua a while ago and simply loved it. Unique, beautiful, authentic: a real lifetime vacation experience. Trancoso is by itself a very unique place, where time seems to have stopped, and life is so pleasant and authentic. A perfect balance between beautiful nature and yet alive and kicking night life, so that you can also get a... More

The best place we have ever stayed in. We stayed in the Seu Joao suite which was very secluded and private. Very nice how you could open the wall in front of the bedroom facing the pool to merge indoors and outdoors during the day. That said, we spent most of the time at the beach. About 10 minutes walk...

As our car service made the final turn and arrived at the back entrance of Uxua, my boyfriend and I were a little skeptical. It didn’t look like what we were expecting. We toured the grounds and we realized that this would take some getting used to. My boyfriend and I typically seek “nicer”, “luxury” hotels. At first glance this... More

Best thing first: the design and feeling of the resort is absolutely outstanding. Having travelled a lot it's fair to say this is a truly unique and really nice location (see pictures). Don't be fooled: the hotel is at the quadrado and has a separate beach club (=bar and sun beds) at the beach, approximately 15 minutes by foot. In... More

This hotel was recommeded to us by our travel agent and it didn't disappoint. Upon arrival we were a bit nervous since it doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside it was so beautiful. We absolutely loved this hotel and the staff here. We will be back for a week for sure. They also gave us a... More

Somehow its hard to believe this place exists. Its ages since a hotel really surprised me and made my heart jump, and I still catch myself smiling at memories of this stay So many details, everything authentic, local, organic, and inserted perfectly into a tropical environment. I just never got tired of absorbing the beauty of this place and Trancoso... More

We were extremely disappointed with our visit to Uxua. We ordered lunch and, aware that service is often slow in Bahia, relaxed and waited.. and waited.. and waited. We made a trip to the toilets which were filthy. An HOUR later there was still no sign of the dishes we had ordered. We asked at the bar and they told... More

Let me first apologize if we didn't meet your expectations I understand you didn’t stay in the UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa but visited our lounge on the beach, and eventually did not eat there. I tried to search your other Tripadvisor contributions to understand your local experiences and expectations, but your profile is new so there’s little for me... More

There are about 50 employees to serve 11 suites that may house about 30 guests. We didn't meet all of the employees, but we were treated royally from the owner, Wilbert Das, to countless others: Marisio (GM), Carlos and Johnny (Concierge), Rafa and Hugo (sp?) (serving breakfast). We experienced two clear situations when the staff went above and beyond to... More

My husband and I stayed at Uxua the 3rd week in November and I have to say it was one of (if not the most) incredible places we ever stayed. After a nightmare domestic flight experience involving extra flights and an additional half day of travel time, we arrived after dark and were greeted by Carlos-his enthusiasiasm and warmth immediately...
