Pousada Estrela D'Agua
Trancoso (Porto Seguro, Trancoso and Arraial d'Ajuda, Brazil)
A beach hotel on the Bahian coast just outside Trancoso, set in 23 square kilometres of private land and overlooking the ocean. There is a spa, a gorgeous, tiered swimming pool and an excellent restaurant.
The hotel can organise many different tours from diving and whale watching to visitng indigenous reserves. The Terravista golf course, one of the most beautiful in Brazil, is nearby.
In addition to the standard rooms there are suites with their own private garden, master suites, which have their own private pool or hot tub, and one duplex bungalow which would suit families. All rooms are air-conditioned and have a safe.
A good option with a perfect location right on the beach, with lovely public spaces and a relaxed atmosphere.
