The internationally-renowned Uxua Casa Hotel Spa is the perfect antidote to the bright lights and glitz of Rio and Brazil's other cities. You will be enchanted by its fabulous beachside location, stunning gardens, imaginative design and laid-back luxury.
Now a UNESCO protected area, the town of Trancoso was originally discovered by Portuguese explorers in 1500, and rediscovered by artsy, hippy culture in the 1970s. Since then, this relaxed and beautiful town has developed a worldwide reputation with the global elite, and Uxua Casa Hotel Spa is one of the reasons for this.
Restored by Designer Wilbert Das, working with local artists and craftsmen, the hotel is a cluster of 11 cleverly-restored former fisherman's houses, some dating as far back as the town's founding. Each has its own distinct style and reflects the personality of its former occupants. The decor is both traditional and inventive, where modern luxuries sit side by side with locally carved furniture, colourful regional fabrics and eye-catching, often quirky architectural touches. Expect arched doorways, little nooks and crannies made into charming seating areas, and televisions hidden within wooden trunks. The intensely green and lush gardens are home to exotic birds, playful monkeys and majestic palms.
With half of its casas sheltered in the forest, others on Trancoso's Quadrado, a lovely car free town square, and one casa a raised studio in the treetops, staying at this remarkable hotel allows for a fully immersive experience; you will find yourself slowing down to Trancoso time soon after you arrive. An idyllic swimming pool, a superb restaurant serving gourmet street food, a dreamy spa and a rustic beach lounge complete the offering.
Uxua Casa Hotel Spa is a haven for adventurous travellers, artists and those seeking the joys of a slower pace of life in an incomparably lovely setting.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
