I wish I had extra stars to rate UXUA.
Everything about the hotel and Trancoso is simply magical.
Time seems to have stopped in this bahian village where a long green park represents the heart of the town. Wild horses graze, tropical birds sing and children play all around.
Hidden amongst the most beautiful coloured fishermen houses is the hotel’s entrance. Here I had the pleasure to try one of the best, fresh, homemade ice-creams I have ever had. I simply loved the coconut flavour, served with crunchy, hot coco chips - a must for whoever has the fortune to visit this place.
The hotel's property is elegant and charming: the private houses and main pool are immersed in tropical nature. Everything is surrounded by palm trees, coloured orchids, peculiar tropical plants and flowers: throughout the whole property it almost feels as if you are walking in a surreal, untouched tropical garden. Every part of UXUA is so graceful, so intimate and private, especially by night, when everything is illuminated by candles.
I've stayed in Casa Gulab Mahal with my boyfriend and two friends. The house was actually one of the historical fishermen homes that frame Trancoso’s unique Quadrado. It was incredibly spacious, featured an amazing living room divided on two floors with the most comfortable and huge sofas, and direct view on the town's square. Our rooms were extremely spacious too, gorgeously furnished, featured a fluffy and big bed, an outdoor-indoor bathroom (mine was actually an open bathroom overlooking our private garden!! One morning I had the chance to see a beautiful black and white monkey looking at me from above the trees).
The food is simply outstanding. From breakfast to dinner, on the beach and at the hotel’s two restaurants we were blown away at every new plate and taste.
The staff is very friendly but at the same time professional and competent - Carlos, one of the concierges suggested us an amazing whale watching day trip just one hour away from the hotel which I highly recommend to anyone visiting Bahia from June to October.
UXUA is simply heaven on earth, an unexpected paradise perfectly integrated in one of the last pure and authentic Brasilian colonial towns.. Go with the person you care the most.
