Today I’d like to “I Dream of Jeannie” myself outta this rainy, cold city and re-materialize on a warm beach with a cocktail in my hand and a massage appointment in 15 mins. Clearly this girl needs a vacation! And topping my list of ohm-sweet-ohm locations is the UXUA Casa Hotel in the Brazilian village of Trancoso. Just browsing through their resort photos brought a little dash of needed serenity.
The resort, designed by Wilbert Das in collaboration with local artisans, fuses organic and natural elements with astoundingly luxurious touches that have caught the eye of everyone from Vogue to Travel & Leisure. Accommodations include opulent casas crafted from old fisherman’s huts and a four-star tree house hovering above the garden. Dear god, is there anything more fabulous than sipping a cocktail while lounging in a tree house? Perhaps only if there is a massage involved.
