The hotel features 11 unique houses (“casas”), blending seamlessly into the historic center of Trancoso, a small fishing village on Brazil’s idyllic southern Bahian coast. The totally private property features 16 suites, ranging from restored fisherman houses to a sleek but ecologically-conscious tree house, as well as other innovative homes spread throughout a lush 7,000m2 garden.

Featured in design magazines worldwide, the 11 casas range from one to three bedrooms, and all have incredibly chic interior decor, incorporating organic materials and authentic Brazilian art and antiques.

Something of a tree house fantasy constructed of recycled wood, spread over multiple levels and suspended from tree-trunks 3-metres off the ground, this one-bedroom casa offers the most rustic atmosphere on the property. A traditional thatched roof sits atop walls of hardwood reclaimed from old farms; a beautiful contrast created with panes of clear glass and modern conveniences built into the structure. A spacious thatch-covered veranda serves as an open-air living room, with a giant hammock, sofa and bar, a setting for enjoying the ideal tropical lifestyle. The bathroom has a double shower and steps leading down to a giant wooden spa tub on a private outdoor deck.

Service at the hotel is very friendly, and reflects the true Bahian culture. The hotel offers an internationally acclaimed restaurant, great bar, fabulous beachfront lounge, unique swimming pool with healing aventurine crystals, and a full spa and gym. For the more active guests, beach volleyball, sea kayaking and even capoeira training (traditional Brazilian dance/martial art) are all available. Those who enjoy cooking, or are interested in learning, can also request cooking lessons with a local chef in their own private casa, and learn about the joys of cooking traditional Bahian cuisine.

Whether you're interested in sipping cocktails on the beach, indulging in internationally acclaimed food, relaxing at the spa or simply lounging around, this is without a doubt the place to be.

The villa is suitable for group of friends, families with children of all ages, and couples. It is also ideal for events including weddings, corporate and creative retreats, press events, etc.

Area description

As well as offering some of the best beaches in the Northeastern Brazil, the Southern Bahian village of Trancoso has a very pretty colonial heart, set on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The large, grassy main square known as the Quadrado is surrounded by colorful native houses presided over by a small church, and has dazzling views of the beaches and ocean. In the evening everyone heads to the Quadrado to sip caipirinhas and browse the shops and boutiques (including nearly all of the chicest Brazilian designers). 

The atmosphere is incredibly relaxed - flip-flops, open shirts and kaftans are the order of the day. However, many of the best know Brazilian film-makers, models, journalists, and singers are regulars at the bars and restaurants. It has begun to attract a sophisticated and international clientele, who come to experience the authentic flavor of Brazil, enhanced by unpretentious restaurants, quaint hotels and stunning private houses.

To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your trip. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.
