Txai Resort Itacaré occupies an idyllic eco-friendly estate where rustic simplicity meets stylish luxury on the endless beaches of Bahia’s undeveloped Cocoa Coast. Framed by 100 hectares of coconut groves, pristine Atlantic rainforests, and chalk white sand beaches fronting the endless crystalline sea, this waterfront resort represents the intersection of exclusive eco-luxury and rare natural Brazilian beauty.
Channeling maximum comfort and natural charm, the 40 ample guest rooms at Txai Resort Itacaré—divided between 14 apartments and 26 freestanding bungalows—sit scattered among the hillside coconut groves. Their décor is informed by their setting, constructed with felled wood and raw local materials like dried palm fronds and bamboo, and lifted high above the ground on stilts for optimal ocean views. The interiors are contemporary-rustic in their approach, draped in all things white: the wraparound sofas, crisp king-size bed linens, canopied mosquito nets, polished concrete floors, and walls dotted with monochrome photos. And with vast picture windows lining three walls, luxurious outdoor showers, and wraparound private decks outfitted with private plunge pools or Jacuzzis, the beautiful beach-meets-forest Bahia landscape is always in full focus.
While the rooms of Txai Resort Itacaré might lack televisions, the ocean views and cozy common areas leave nothing wanting. Poolside loungers come accompanied by delicious caipirinhas, hammocks are strewn between the coconut trees, all five swimming pools are just a few feet from the sea, and reading and game rooms lined in Brazilian Art lend themselves to moments of unwinding relaxation. No less impressive are the culinary delights of Txai Resort Itacaré, which blend refined gastronomy with fresh and fragrant Bahian flavors. Experience the “barefoot chic” Beach Restaurant where the fish is fresh and toes rest in the sand, and taste the true flavors of Brazil at the community-to-table Orixás and Cacau restaurants. For an extra dose of romance and personalization, opt for a five-course degustation and wine pairing, an exclusive candlelit dinner in a private corner of the resort, or a hands-on cooking class with the chef.
The Atlantic Forest surrounding Txai Resort Itacaré is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a priceless environment suited for both leisure and diversion. Guests have at their disposal a suite of eco-friendly activities allowing them to soak up the local culture and nature, including white water rafting, surfing lessons, horseback riding, kayaking, or guided ecological forest hikes. From capoeira classes and baby turtle releasing efforts to excursions to local cocoa farms and villages, Txai Resort Itacaré is committed to meeting the highest standards of amenities while minimizing ecological impact and supporting local populations. And if that wasn’t enough, Txai Resort Itacaré is also the only resort in Brazil offering a range of ancient spa treatments utilizing natural ingredients plucked from the Bahia landscape. After a long day of exploration, guests are invited to retreat to the hilltop Shamash Spa for replenishing services while overlooking the palm trees and sea.Request Information
