Pousada Estrela D'Agua - Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil - Boutique Resort

Pousada Estrela D'Agua Trancoso Brazil


Find your happiness in Trancoso where you'll find historic architecture and kilometers of dreamy beaches.

Pousada Estrela D'Agua was named "The Best Beach Pousada in Brazil" in 1000 Places to see Before You Die. Pousada Estrela D'Agua faces one of the most stunning beaches and offers spacious and vibrant rooms – a mixture of all the colors of Brazil. The only dilemmas you'll face here are "Hammock or lounge chair?, turquoise pool or emerald sea?, golf or scuba diving?, spa or a stroll in the tropical garden?" The hotel is 5 minutes from the Terravista Golf Course, considered the largest and best designed golf course in Latin America. Guests enjoy special green fee rates.

The Master Suites are bungalows with at least 120 m², facing the internal garden and ensuring absolute privacy. All equipped with private pool or Jacuzzi, pergola with hammock, air conditioner, DVD and plasma TV home theater, Wi-Fi internet, in-room safe, hair dryer, king size bed, minibar and Nespresso coffee maker.

Estrela D'Água offers an authentic gastronomic experience including a new Japanese restaurant. The menu has many options, from international cuisine to contemporary cuisine from Bahia. There are two restaurants, servicing guests at the beach or in the swimming pool. The main restaurant, Aldeia de São João, has ocean view – this is where breakfast is served. A carefully selected wine list is offered for candle-light dinners. The Bar da Costa, dedicated to serving guests in the swimming pool and at the beach, is famous for its fruit caipirinhas.
