A Pousada with a foot-in-the-sand, head-in-the-clouds in the Itapororoca Beach, Trancoso’s finest and most exclusive beach.


Trancoso is one of Porto Seguro’s districts right by Vale Verde, Arraial D’Ajuda, Coroa Vermelha, Caraíva, and Santa Cruz de Cabrália and is part of the Discovery Route in Southern Bahia.

Trancoso is one of Brazil’s oldest settlements, founded by Jesuits in the XVI century. This rare, precious, and secluded corner of the country was rediscovered in the 1970s, this time by a group of hippies who were enchanted by the magic of the place. Since then, among fishermen, artisans, and travelers in search of peace and love, Trancoso has gained an increasing number of visitors inspired by the emerald sea, white sand, corals, and coconut groves.

Today, Trancoso has become a charming and trendy village, and the Quadrado square brings together sophisticated restaurants, cool bars, cafes, charming shops, and studios in its old, colorful houses, protected by IPHAN (National Institute of Historical and Artistic Heritage), with the iconic São João Batista Church in the background.

A few minutes from Quadrado, the Pousada Tutabel is immersed in the Atlantic Forest experience: arriving at the Itapororoca Beach, one of the region’s most stunning and well-preserved, is probably the definition of a land (or sand) paradise.

The feeling is that of a summer house. A beach almost exclusively yours, with more shells than visitors. On one side there is the sea, on the other, the forest. The Pousada lies between them,by the sandbank. Every corner is an invitation to relax and connect with Bahia’s exuberant nature. Immersion in the Bahia culture also takes place through gastronomy, with a menu inspired by native flavors and scents.

Pousada Tutabel has the comfort of only 18 suites, a pool, gym, sauna, beach and forest experiences in a Private Reservation of Natural Heritage.

The Quadrado Square

Missing the buzz? If you feel like seeing people, it only takes 15 minutes to get to the center of Trancoso and everything is there: sophisticated restaurants, cool bars, cafes, charming shops, and art studios, with the iconic São João Batista church in the background.


Adjacent to Pousada Tutabel, the ‘RPPN Rio do Brasil’ is an environmental reserve with 975 hectares, stunning and abundant, home to several endangered species such as the Chauá Parrot (Amazona rhodocorytha), endangered, and the extremely rare White-tailed Sabrewing Hummingbird (Phaethornis margarettae). It promotes sustainable development and environmental education for visitors, whether they are residents or tourists.

In RPPN Rio do Brasil, visitors not only experience immersion in the forest as they descend the river, forming a corridor surrounded by Atlantic Forest trees, but also through time and history, by kayaking in the 'country's first mapped river' by Europeans.

“All right. All good.


This Pousada was recommended by the agency, and it really surprised me. I hadn't reviewed it for a long time, but I felt obliged to share the dedication that this place has for the client! The staff was responsive and friendly from the first email contact. The Pousada is beautiful and extremely clean. Every time you leave the room you come back surprised by the tidy bed! The beach seemed made for me and stands out for all its privacy! The meals are hearty, and the drinks are delicious. The breakfast served at anytime and anywhere in the Pousada is still a plus.

There are no compliments to describe Pousada Tutabel. A well-maintained place with comfortable and spacious accommodations. The cleanliness is impeccable, and the treatment is thorough, which includes an extremely friendly and well-trained staff. I felt like I was being welcomed to a friend's house and the experience was incredible! It is a place for those who want to rest near the sea and in a structure that offers a lot of comfort. And there's also the cuisine! I left feeling a special affection for the menu, the dishes are all incredibly tasty.

Impeccable service and high-quality cuisine. My experience in this paradise was excellent! The inn is incredible, the cuisine is wonderful, and the service is impeccable. Breakfast served at any time of the day is a huge difference, besides being very delicious, everything is extremely fresh, we loved it! We were surprised by the agility to prepare the dinners we ordered in the room, which were also wonderful.

Excellent Service and Facilities. Excellent Pousada with differentiated service. I arrived at night in Porto Seguro and on the way to Trancoso I called to find out if the Tutabel's restaurant would be open because of the children. They said they would keep it open just to welcome us. Large and excellent rooms for family travel. Clean and tidy. I recommend it!
