The site includes a series of glittering pools, a hilltop spa, tennis courts, Bahia-style restaurants, choice of organised activities, comfortable guest lounge and library.  

Guests can choose from apartment and standalone bungalow accommodation. The simple rustic furnishings create a stylish minimalistic vibe, and all include Wi-Fi, LED TV, and minibar. Entry level Superior Apartments are in blocks of four and include a private balcony and ensuite shower. For more space and ocean views, book a hillside Mezzanine Luxury Apartment, while Luxury Apartments offer beach level living and partial sea views. For greater privacy, we would recommend one of the stilted bungalows which offer additional amenities including outdoor shower and Nespresso machine. Top of the range Premium Bungalows also include a private plunge pool and media entertainment centre. 

Devour exciting Bahian cuisine created from fresh regional ingredients, alongside a superb selection of South American and international wines. Specialities include shrimp stew and oxtail steak wrapped in banana leaves. Do try the Chef’s Tasting Menu, a wonderful introduction to the local flavours of both Bahia and Brazil. Breakfast and dine on the shady terraces of Orixás and enjoy casual poolside lunches at Praia. The resort can also organise romantic private dinners to celebrate special occasions. 

The site features several swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centre and the Shamash Healing Space Spa. This dreamy spa aims to restore balance and wellbeing through a range of therapeutic rituals, massages, and yoga. Other leisure activities include relaxing on the beach, surfing the waves, hiking the beach trails, boat tours of local rivers, waterfalls and islands and guided local tours to Vila Rosa Farm, a local cocoa farm and factory for a chocolate tasting session. Children are welcome at Txai Itacaré and the resort provides a dedicated children’s pool and specific activities including painting, clay modelling, games and tree climbing. 

Given the privileged beach location, a full range of watersports are on offer but you can also go horse riding into the Atlantic rainforest or why not explore the nearby river Rio de Contas in a canoe.

Top tip:

Do ask the team at Txai about the Turtle Conservation Project. Turtles start nesting in October, over the course of two months. You can see them heading to the beach from December to February. The team light their path to the beach from your bungalow with low flickering lights on the sand.
