YOUR HOSTS IN TRANCOSO

Brazilians refer to Bahia as the world capital of happiness, and Trancoso earned its legend as the region's most welcoming spot when globe-hopping hippies arrived in the 1970's and found they had no desire to ever leave.

Our concierge team also call Trancoso home and have one mission - to share paradise.

Our concierge can plan UXUA Vida Spa treatments with rainforest ingredients, training with experts in fitness, pilates or yoga, lessons in capoeira, forró dancing or samba, trips to exotic beaches or Pataxó reserves, reservations at acclaimed restaurants or little-known new entries on the local food scene.

For the adventurous, this area is an eco-sports utopia with surf, kite-surf, stand-up, kayak, mountain biking and horseback riding, fishing or whale watching - all can be enjoyed with or without local guides.

The UXUA Vida Lab is directed by doctor of nutrology Jullian Hamamoto who can be scheduled to teach juice mixology, natural fermentation, a medical nutrition cooking class, or even to lead foraging expeditions into Trancoso's 4 distinct natural biomes.

Cooking is a social event in Trancoso and UXUA's boutique cooking school has its own rustic kitchen where spicy Bahian classics can be taught, as well as chocolate-making using fresh cacao grown in UXUA gardens.
