I have to say that I was really surprised with that hotel. Amazing location, and like living in a forest, but with facilities of a big city. The location is breathtaking, birds, flower, green and very kind staffs! :) Found a bit hard to see more of the hotel in the website, was happy with the few I could check... More

We recently returned from staying in this delightful if a little quirky Etnia. We were travelling with our three adult children, we all loved Etnia. We arrived after a day of travelling from Rio and wow what a welcome sight the tropical path leading to the swimming pool/restaurant area. We had our own 2 bedroom fabulous house/villa in the beautifully... More

amazing hotel, lovely design and decor... has an ultimately "boutique feel to it." Very cool, breezy, such a rare find. Pictures that we took did it such great justice as well. Very happy with them. The rooms were gorgeous, so unique, everything was so well thought through and ungeneric. Loved it would definitely go back.

Here for three days of relaxation between hectic visits to São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and it hits the spot. A beautiful wooded sloping site leads down from the main street of Trancoso to Etnia. The rooms are in separate buildings scattered round the estate, each simply furnished and comfortable, with spacious verandas. Sitting here on the veranda you're... More

We came to Trancoso, as my partner's choice, I normally when in Brazil , don't travel north. I'm glad he did. We've stayed a few nights at Etnia, our suite was fantastic, the lush green garden and it's flowers was refreshing and it took me back into nature and peace. The swimming pool area was lovely and the adjacent restaurant... More

The Posada itself is beautiful but what really differentiated Etnia for me was Laura, the managers, interest in making sure I had the best stay in trancoso that I could possibly have. I wanted to see the beaches, so she arranged both cars and beach restaurants for me Espelho and RIo de Barra which were both just out of this... More

Laid back, small hotel near the Quadrado. Rooms are simple, but stylish. Pool area is very nice. Breakfast served on the balcony of your room or at the pool. No SPA, but massages offered in-room (did not use this). Employees, management and owner are friendly. Don't confuse it with Etnia Club de Mar, which is the second (and more expensive)... More
