Txai Itacare

A member of Relais & Chateaux, Txai Resort is located on a coconut plantation surrounded by Atlantic rainforest on the paradise like beach of Itacarezinho. Individually built on stilts on the water's edge or perched on the hillside and surrounded by wooden decks, the 40 thatched guest bungalows are spread around the coconut groves to ensure maximum privacy.

The spacious rooms, decorated using neutral tones combine comfortable furnishings with a rustic simplicity, ensuring that the emphasis is on the natural beauty of the surroundings.


Located right on Itacarezinho beach, an undeveloped and beautiful stretch of the Cacao coast, approximately 250 miles south of Salvador and around 50 minutes’ drive from Ilheus airport.

 Why we like it

The long stretch of powdery white sand at Itacarezinho beach stretches as far as the eye can see. Backed by lush coconut palms with the surf of the South Atlantic just steps away it really is a magical location and the food, service and facilities of the hotel won’t disappoint either.
