Etnia Pousada is a stylish and chic boutique hotel, cleverly combining its simple contemporary design to its natural settings.
Through the ingenious eye of its fashionista owners, Etnia is able to gel their immaculate taste, attention to detail with a personal touch creating, at its heart an underlying philosophy of understated sophistication.
Dotted around the rainforest style gardens, each of the 8 suites are decorated with subtle ethnic tones and present a different world style from Africa to the Orient. So you could feel like you are staying in Goa or the African Serengeti, even though you are in the rainforest. At the centre of this hotel is the beautiful swimming pool and open-air restaurant, where guests are able to dine on a delicious Brazilian menu in a relaxed, yet intimate and stylish atmosphere.
The newest addition to Trancosco is Etnia Clube de Mar, which also happens to be the sister property of Etnia Pousada, as well as being on the beach. The hotels have an agreement whereby guests of Etnia Pousada can use Etnia Clube de Mar's beach facilities, and Clube de Mar can use their pool.
