UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa, Bahia Coast

Virtually forgotten for centuries, this tiny village enjoyed a remote existence perched high on a hill, surrounded by deep rainforest and deserted beaches. Today it has changed very little – make Uxua Casa Hotel part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Brazil – and you’ll still have a strong sense of the region’s early history as well as its present rural way of life.

In fact, to some degree you’ll live it. Uxua offers you the chance to stay in a choice of charmingly rustic casas, spread haphazardly throughout lush gardens that almost overgrow them. They rejoice in open decks that are often visited by tropical birds and inquisitive monkeys, putting you in direct touch with nature. You can even shower outdoors for a true rainforest experience.
