Hotel Overview


In the heart of Salvador's historic centre, Pelourhino.

Rooms at Villa Bahia

Villa Bahia has just 17 rooms, varying in size and shape as you’d expect from a historic building like this. All have their own private balconies. Vibrant colours are the hallmark of each one, and each is named individually after landmarks of the Portuguese kingdoms of old. Homespun patchwork quilts, four poster beds, old fashioned lamps and antique chairs give them all bags of atmosphere. Air conditioning and Wi-Fi add convenience and comfort to the mix.

Food and Facilities

As well as a swimming pool, the Villa Bahia has a reading room and a lovely roof terrace with views over the historic Pelourinho district. The high-ceilinged ground floor restaurant, with its tall windows and whitewashed walls, is excellent for fresh seafood, deliciously cooked local style.

Activities at Villa Bahia

Wandering the streets of bustling Pelourinho is an activity in itself, with churches, museums, samba schools and capoeira classes all just minutes away from the hotel.
