Txai Resort, Itacaré

Exclusivity and sustainability are in perfect harmony at Txai Resort in Itacaré. Reigning over the unspoilt Itacarézinho white sand beach, this eco-friendly five-star resort and spa embodies tranquility like none other. More so, with just 40 rooms, this paradise is essentially yours to lose yourself in. Let the crystalline blue water and world-class service at Txai speak for themselves, we promise you won’t be disappointed.


Beachfront and hillside, Txai lies tangled amongst coconut groves and the Native Atlantic Rainforest. Sitting pretty on its private 227 acres, Illheus airport is located just 40 minutes south. With five pools, three restaurants and two tennis courts, we don’t see a need to step off hotel grounds here – unless it’s to explore the handful of idyllic beaches the Bahian Coast has to offer.

Your Room

Pick from one of 14 luxury rooms and 26 individual bungalows at Txai, all of which are adorned in white linen, bamboo, and palm. For an extra dose of exclusivity, opt for one of the bungalows boasting a private pool, Jacuzzi, and outdoor shower. Whether you prefer to wake beach-side or lie brushed against the rainforest — just take your pick. There’s something for everyone here.

Why we like it

Besides being the absolute epitome of a tropical retreat, Txai is doing a lot for their surrounding community. The resort is involved with a multitude of philanthropic projects, including the monitoring of sea turtles, the recovery of native vegetation and continual lessons in sustainable tourism. A morning volunteering and an evening watching the sunset over the Atlantic with a caipirinha in hand– what’s not to like?
