Villa Bahia

about Villa bahia, salvador 

Villa Bahia beautifully reflects the past of the Portuguese explorers and their exchanges with Africa and Asia; each room is named after a destination on the spice route and the décor intertwines influence from related countries. The traditional colonial style is given a tropical twist, white washed walls are contrasted with bright and colourful features and palm trees overhang the patios and pool.

There are fantastic social areas to relax with a cocktail, take a splash in the plunge pool, laze around in one of many hammocks or simply enjoy the views of the surrounding colourful houses of the historic Pelourinho District.

Made from restored adjoining mansions from the 17th and 18th century, the hotel has really managed to capture the spirit of these times.
