It all started in 2000, with the arrival of SuperClubs Breezes, which made up the original formation of the Costa do Sauipe complex. Originating in Jamaica, the resort brought to Brazil the most common accommodation system in the Caribbean and in the Spanish archipelagos of the Canaries and Balearics: the all-inclusive. Suddenly, […]
Guide to Hotels, Inns in Bahia and Salvador
Bahia and Salvador have excellent options of Hotels, Inns and Resorts for all tastes.
Salvador is the most exotic city you can visit without leaving the country.
It's a place where other Brazilians feel a bit foreign – while discovering the most essential Brazil.
Any ordinary activity – going to the beach, eating, attending a party – may require a cultural dive.
But on the other hand, a lot will seem familiar to you: Salvador is the city outside the Rio-São Paulo axis that most influences Brazilian mass culture.
Hotels, Inns and Resorts in Bahia
The capital of Bahia is also the gateway to a true corridor of resorts on the north coast – from Itapuã to Costa do Sauípe, passing through Praia do Forte and Imbassaí.
Crossing the Baía de Todos os Santos, you arrive at Itaparica and, heading south, to one of the most beautiful stretches of the Brazilian coast: the Costa do Dendê, where Morro de São Paulo, Boipeba and Barra Grande are located.
The hotels and inns in Rio Vermelho have the advantage of being right next to a lively bohemian area, close to the central attractions and already on the way to the northern countries. There, consider the ultra-charming Zank by Toque, the comfortable Pestana Lodge, Mercure Rio Vermelho and Pestana Bahia, the functional Golden Tulip and Ibis Rio Vermelho, and the alternative-cult Catharina Paraguaçu.
Barra has hotels and inns with good cost-benefit ratio. Those staying at the Grande Hotel da Barra or at Sol Barra are in front of the best beach in town, Porto da Barra. In the Barra shopping area, stick with the correct Monte Pascoal or the minimalist-basic-economic Barra Mar.
At the top of Ladeira da Barra, the Vitória Corridor connects Barra to Campo Grande and Pelô. Area highlights are the Casa da Vitória boutique inn and the recently renovated Sheraton da Bahia.
Pelourinho, Carmo and Santo Antônio are the regions preferred by foreigners. Very close to Elevador Lacerda, Bahia Café offers a convenient and affordable landing to take the catamaran to Morro de São Paulo the next morning. The most chic hotel in Pelô is Villa Bahia, in Terreiro de Jesus.
Casa do Amarelindo is also very comfortable and has highly praised service. To take it easy on your pocket, think about Solar das Artes, which is in the middle of the (best) crowd.
Beyond the Ladeira do Carmo, the Pestana Convento do Carmo is one of the most elegant and charismatic in Brazil. The other luxury option is the enchanting five-bedroom Aram Yami. The Pousada des Arts is a good option to spend little.
On the northern beaches, Villa da Praia is a medium-sized hotel on the sand in Stella Maris, with a nice pool and close to my favorite beach bar, Bora Bora.
In the resort genre, choose between Catussaba and the Gran Hotel Stella Maris. Outside the city, 6 km ahead of the airport, Bahia Plaza leaves you inside the exclusive Busca-Vida condominium, which has a beach virtually inaccessible to outsiders.
