Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa Review

Wilbert Das, creative director of the clothing brand Diesel, found his calling designing this property: the 10 private bungalows encapsulate the original, quirky character of former fishermen's abodes, while remaining impeccably furnished with products from local designers. With converted fisherman cottages and the use of local products and design elements, this intimate hotel puts the destination front and center. Couples will appreciate the privacy of the Tree-House, while social butterflies should head for one of the three houses that open directly onto the quadrado. Hand-laid with 400,000 aventurine quartz, the kidney-shaped pool is thought to have healing properties, while the spa (complete with products hand-crafted from almescar by the local Pataxó Indians and a Vichy treatment suite) is the best in town. Uxua's beach club is a 10-minute walk away.
