Nestled in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic quarter of the UNESCO World Heritage listed city, Villa Bahia offers a unique holiday experience with exclusive gastronomy.
Showcasing authentic Portuguese-era details, the two adjoining 17th- and 18th-century colonial homes boast two luscious garden courtyards, a refreshing plunge pool and a panoramic terrace to create a charming city base. Each of the beautiful rooms at Villa Bahia has been carefully renovated to preserve its original spirit and overlooks the district's colourful façades.
Located in Pelourinho, Villa Bahia is just a short walk away from the Jorge Amado Museum, Elevador Lacerda and Praca da Sé.
" Stunning hotel with superb staff"
After a relaxing week in Jericoacoara beach we headed to Salvador, right in the middle of everything, in the Pelourinho area, so we weren't expecting a quiet hotel, where one could take an afternoon nap to wait out the sweltering midday heat. Based on the pics online, Vila Bahia looked beautiful, but as an experienced traveler, I know you only find out the real truth once you arrive. Man were we floored. First of all, the location and quality combination cannot be matched anywhere else near the historical center in Salvador. We arrive and walk into what looks like a beautifully curated museum, with antique furniture pieces and Afro Brazilian art everywhere. Every visual detail is well thought of and the colonial old building itself is masterfully preserved/renovated. Walking through the halls and different floors, from the beautiful indoor garden breakfast area, to the pool and amazing rooftop garden with great views of the High City (where you can request to have breakfast as well), this place was stunning in every way. The staff was SO attentive and the room was always impeccably clean (clean towels too) EVERY TIME WE CANE BACK IN, it made us think the hotel was empty, until we realized it was fully booked. Upon entering our room, Moçambique, a beautiful rendition of what a Brazilian aristocrat's bedroom would look like 200 years ago with massive farm house windows, we were concerned about how loud it would be with the constant music and foot traffic at "Largo do Cruzeiro de São Francisco". We asked Claudio, the Argentine guitar player at the front desk if we could switch rooms and he was super accommodating and showed us a couple of other smaller rooms on the top floor, both with private decks. It was tempting but we closed the windows just to check the noise and realized our original room was completely sealed off once we did that! The rooms: All rooms are decorated to represent different groups of people who contributed to the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of Brazil). The breakfast: I bet if you eat everything they offer you can wait until dinner. The hostess extraordinaire, whose name I forget is a delight at breakfast and at the bar during the day and always eager to help. The staff as a whole was amazing. We would highly recommend Vila Bahia to everyone coming to the Historical Center in Salvador and would definitely stay there again.
We went to this restaurant on our first day in Salvador (we were staying at another hotel). The food was delightful, prepared most delicately, light but satisfying. The wines were well chosen and the service was attentive and well-paced. The dining room is absolutely charming. Many of the guests were French!
"Simply stunning "
We weren't sure what to expect staying right in the heart of the Pelourinho but this hotel exceeded all expectations! The hotel, rooms and hallways are filled with furniture, art and details that make you feel like you are in a museum. The windows and shades completely obscure the sound and hustle and bustle of the square below with its nightly assortment of live music when you need to take a break. The staff is friendly, warm, attentive and helpful with any questions you may have about the area and things to do. The included breakfast is enough food to last you until dinner. At night you can go up to the communal roof and here music from at least 4 places within a block to choose whichever suits you! We were floored by how great this hotel was and highly recommend it!
"Near to perfection - alliance of charm and quality service"
Hotel located into classical houses in the historic center of Salvador de Bahia. Full of charm. Top quality service very personalized. Excellent breakfast served by a lady who brings happiness into your breakfast. The rooms are more than nice. If some customers complain about the fact that the place is "old fashioned" my answer is: these people do not know what classical charm means. The swimming pool is very very small... The restaurant must be one of the best in the city.
"To be in The spot"
Very nice place right in The Main square. Rooms are clean and The service is great.....I suggest to eat at The hotel restaurant very high standard where you can taste The real Palmito ....even breakfast is really good. You step out and you are in The soul of Pelourinho
