In the midst of a shady grove and considered an oasis of tranquility, Etnia Pousada & Boutique is set in exquisite natural surroundings. It offers extremely comfort ethnically decorated accommodation with a mix of kitsch and authenticity.


The Pousada offers four villas and seven themed suites. The decoration follows the theme of each one. All accommodations have a terrace and private garden and are equipped with all essential amenities for guests, such as Swedish pillows, Egyptian cotton sheets, air conditioning, minibar, cable TV, telephone, hairdryer, safe, room service, wireless internet access, and balcony.

  • Master

There are two master suites: Gipsy and Mediterranean. The master suites differ from double suites by size and the elegant indoor gardens. There is an attached “living room” or mezzanine where it is possible to accommodate two extra guests on either two single beds or one double bed. There will be a 10% increase on the daily rate for each extra bed requested.

  • Double

There are five double suites, each one is particularly charming and cozy: Trancoso, Cottage, Tribal, Kyoto, and Goa. Two single beds can be arranged in place of the double bed.


The Etnia has four special villas named in Iorubá language: Ibó, which means adoration place, Ebatí which means temple, Ojulé which means home, and Alafiá, which means peace and happiness.

Because of the structure and the distance between the villas, they are ideal to host families or couples in complete privacy and comfort. They are fully equipped, allowing guests to choose between cooking during their stay or enjoying the full restaurant and hotel services.


Etnia Pousada & Boutique is located in Trancoso, Brazil. Trancoso is a small village in the Southern State of Bahia in the Discovery Coast of Brazil that was rediscovered in the late 70s by a group of hippies. Back then, the village was simply a row of humble fisherman shacks lining the square with a church at the far end overlooking the sea. Today, the famous grassy square is better known as the Quadrado, and was declared a heritage of humanity by UNESCO.

The town plan, modeled on the first Indigenous villages, was created by the Portuguese Jesuits who habited Trancoso during the years that succeeded the discovering of Brazil and keeps up to date. This model of urbanization respected local customs that were originally part of the Indian culture long before the Jesuits arrived.

Due to its stunning nature and wonderful beaches, Trancoso attracts people from the world over. Architects, craftsmen, artists, and designers have found the inspiration here to develop, together with local artists and craftsmen, their own style, and are recognized and respected in Brazil and abroad.
