This spectacularly unique casa is our largest and most recent, completed in the final months of 2020. Even while located deep in our gardens it receives an abundance of sunlight. Built from reclaimed woods, it replaces a smaller fisherman home and pond which UXUA's founders dreamed for years of upgrading with modern technology to keep the waters in perfect ecological balance.
Designer Wilbert Das used reclaimed wood from abandoned farms to construct this re-interpretation of the Brazilian colonial style, emphasizing rusticity and comfort. The upstairs master suite is UXUA's largest, enjoying a private lounge / terrace. Hundreds of unique design touches standout, as do the Brazilian art, antiques and design pieces from the exclusive UXUA D.A.S. collection, including the original Poltrona-U, recipient of a 2020 A+ Architizer design award for residential seating.
Thousands of small details executed with care give UXUA its identity. Furniture, decor, lighting and fixtures are one-of-a-kind, organic creations of designer Wilbert Das, handmade at the hotel by native artisans ranging from fishermen to Pataxó Indians. Antiques and art are sourced locally. International creatives living at UXUA have contributed via our Artist In Casa residency.
