Salvador da Bahia and the Chapada Diamantina: Villa Bahia

Visit Us

Villa Bahia

Villa Bahia, a refurbishment of two adjoining colonial residences, is in the heart of the evocative historic centre of Salvador, choc-a-bloc with a jumble of colourfully painted houses, shops, bars and restaurants. The cobbled alleys resound with the drumbeat of Brazil’s Afro-Portuguese heritage, but ensconced in this charming guesthouse, behind soundproofed windows, you feel as though you're in a bubble of calm.

The property has 17 individually decorated guestrooms distributed over three floors. Conceived and inspired by the French proprietor, the rooms' décor and furnishings whisk you back to the colonial era: highly polished wooden floors, four-poster beds and lofty wooden ceilings add to the atmosphere. Most rooms have a Juliet balcony or terrace. The three rooms on the top floor are smaller but ample compensation comes in the form of a large outdoor area complete with Jacuzzi.

Relaxation is a high priority here: the communal rooftop sun terrace has two Jacuzzis, a sauna, steam room and two massage rooms. There is also a restaurant serving up distinctive Bahian cuisine with a French flavour, and a small ground-floor swimming pool on a leafy patio.
