It’s unique, it’s colourful and it’s very, very cool. Creative director for international label Diesel, Wilbert Das, set a benchmark in relaxed glamour with the UXUA Casa Hotel, overlooking Brazil’s legendary Bahian coastline.

Head to the deep golden sands of the beachfront Praia Bar to top up on sunshine and cocktails (a fishing-boat-turned DJ booth keeps the blissed-out guests entertained) or chill out in one of nine individually crafted ‘casas’. Couples will love Casa Da Arvore, a rustic treehouse suspended above an open-air spa tub and private garden which is illuminated by candlight each evening, and honeymooners are privy to treats such as moonlit horse riding on the beach and traditional Bahian blessings. A special touch; 60 per cent of the property is reserved for the local sea turtles, which can often be spotted wandering across the sand!
Perfect for: laid-back couples who are looking for gorgeous beaches, unique accommodations and a cool South American vibe.
