A hotel like no other in Salvador da Bahia: two magnificent mansions with colonial charm, a journey through verdant courtyards, the pleasure of first-class gastronomy…
Nestled in the heart of Pelourinho, the historic quarter of the UNESCO World Heritage listed city; the Villa is comprised of two adjoining 17th and 18th century colonial homes, remnants of the Portuguese era.
Overlooking the colourful facades of the district, the 17 rooms have been carefully renovated to preserve their original spirit. The result is enticing: an authentic colonial atmosphere, enhanced by two garden courtyards, a refreshing plunge pool and a panoramic terrace.
Your host, Bruno Guinard, a Frenchman who has called Bahia home for 30 years, has proudly implemented genuine local participation and sustainable development practices within the Villa Bahia.
The Villa Bahia is enticed with 2 peaceful patios: one with a botanical atmosphere and cooling fountain, the other with white walls, dripping vegetation and a small pool – a rare sight in the Pelourinho.
The deep sofas in the lounge prompt moments of conviviality…
The furniture and objects were all chosen for their authenticity, a move welcomed by Bahians when they visit the Villa Bahia!
A roof-top terrace allows you to overlook the historical center, with its many bells and colored facades.
