Venue Features
The Scene:
Authenticity is the greatest luxury a visit to Brazil's Bahia state can offer, and living among native families in the heart of old Trancoso delivers the experience naturally, in style and comfort, and with an ethos of sustainability. 5-star hotel service, a stunning rustic beach lounge, and an innovative organic spa complete the perfect wedding location. Among any location in the world, perhaps the aspect making UXUA the ideal place for hosting events is the comfort and flexibility for groups staying at the hotel. Being in the car-free center of picturesque Trancoso, all guests enjoy total independence with shops, restaurants, galleries, and of course the beach, all just steps away and available any time. At the same time the hotel environment is totally private and exclusive to hotel guests, so a casual, intimate atmosphere reigns within UXUA’s lush property in which members of groups can enjoy each other’s company and grow friendships - and the coordinating of group activities is amazingly simple. Brazil is a land of incredible natural beauty, but among all the attractions across the vast land, there is one destination recognized as the premier setting for weddings: Trancoso The entire village, even while being an authentic Bahian town, seems a stage-set for an enchanting event
UXUA’s design recalls Trancoso’s 500-years of history. Portuguese adventurers, Jesuit missionaries, Indian tribes, African slaves, and even Brazilian hippies have influenced in some way the architecture, art, and antiques that make each UXUA a unique expression. The casas range from authentically restored fisherman houses facing the town’s 16th century Quadrado, to a sleekly opulent but ecologically-conscious treehouse and other distinct homes hidden around a lush garden. Featured in design magazines worldwide, the innovative aesthetic has been labeled ‘rustic modernism’, a simple tropical fusion of indoor / outdoor space capturing the appeal of the southern Bahian lifestyle.

Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
UXUA QUADRADO UXUA’s culinary approach is simple but very, very authentic, continuously searching for the harmony between the roots of the Bahian culinary history and the innovation of the modern international cuisine. Just like with the hotel, made with local techniques and artisans, the local influence on UXUA cuisine is notable. We truly emphasize 'localism' as we do in all of the UXUA project since the beginning. Ingredients emphasize local seafood and organic produce, various kinds of spices, fresh baked goods, local cacao, coconut, and tropical fruits for drinks and the famed UXUA ice cream. UXUA PRAIA The menu is filled with a sophisticated version of the typical bahian food, while our guests enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, only hearing the best of Brazilian music and world music as well, and also enjoying the natural sound of the ocean. Number 7 on World’s 50 best beach bars – CNN The menu is filled with a sophisticated version of the typical bahian food, while our guests enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, only hearing the best of Brazilian music and world music as well, and also enjoying the natural sound of the ocean. “Stunningly located beach bar, which is close to both the town and the seafront” (Mr & Ms Smith) UXUA JARDIM With a cushion-filled raised mezzanine, sofas that are lined with recycled canvas, a hand-carved hardwood bar and an exquisite table 3 meters long which lays on top of a cashew tree trunk. The walls are made out of pau a pique, which is a natural construction method that are built by native tribes such as Pataxo, from the south of Bahia, that also contributed to the lamps and decoration for this space. Tamara’s text suggestion to complement as I think it’s missing a second paragraph about the menu: Our menu is inspired on the pride in Bahian cooking that is so strong and vivid among the people of Trancoso. There's few regional cuisines in the world with such complex historical roots, with African slaves and Portuguese colonial traditions fused with Native American influences.
