Etnia Pousada

Etnia Pousada 3 Star

from £173 per room night


The Etnia Pousada is a stylish and small boutique hotel set down a leafy road in a traditional building surrounded by gardens and woodlands. It’s well located close to all the amenities of central Trancoso, a quiet fishing village in Bahia on the east coast of Brazil. With just eight bungalows, it’s the perfect choice for a cosy, romantic break – even honeymoon. It’s also worth the 80km transfer from the nearest airport.


The hotel’s eight bungalows are all luxurious yet rustic, decorated to a high standard and styled with a different ethnic influence in mind. For example, most rooms feature a calming neutral colour palate, four-poster beds with pretty drapes, combined with brightly painted locally handmade furniture and soft furnishings. They also all have air-conditioning and generous bathrooms.


The hotel is just moments from a beautiful beach, as well as some of the best in Brazil – some up to a two-hour drive away. If you fancy soaking up the local history, the town of Trancosco is a nice place for a wander, its streets filled with little galleries, shops and restaurants. In terms of shopping, the emphasis is on smaller independent designers and makers, including natural cosmetics and jewellery.


Food and drink is served in an open-sided bar restaurant by the pool. It’s a casual yet stylish setting with breakfast a particularly fun part of the day, where guests choose from lots of little dishes laid out on the bar, including all the usual fare as well as local dishes such as fried bananas and pancakes filled with ricotta. Not to mention delicious French toast with cinnamon. You can also order light snacks and drinks throughout the day.
