Pousada des Arts


  • Pousada des Arts


Pousada des Arts has been painstakingly restored over a period of 4 years by a dedicated team of architects, artists and craftsmen and now offers spacious accommodation in the heart of Salvador. This former colonial mansion is a welcoming sight with its ochre and red paintwork, high ceilings and gleaming wooden floors. The large windows afford views of the Bay of All Saints and the historic city.

There are 8 suites, comfortably furnished with luxurious Baldaquin (canopy) beds, minibar and fan. Modern comforts and amenities have not been forgotten and include television, DVD player, 'phone, hair dryer, safe, free internet access and air conditioning. The Superior Suites have balconies with views out over the city, while the Luxury Suites have large verandas with hammocks, overlooking the bay. All suites have a single bed as well as the double bed and two of the Luxury Suites have a mezzanine floor with room for up to three more guests. Rooms are decorated in warm colours, giving a homely feel. The pousada provides a generous breakfast, served on the sunny downstairs terrace with loveky sea views, and there are many restaurants nearby for lunch and evening meals.

The lobby doubles as an arts venue when the pousada holds its monthly exhibitions of local paintings or sculpture, plus musical performances, all celebrating the vibrant art and culture of Bahia. Guests are welcome to attend these events and meet the artists in person.

The pousada is perfectly positioned for exploring the Upper City with historic buildings and monuments. Its proximity to the coast means that beach visits and water sports are popular pastimes. Catamaran sailing, sunset cruises, speed boat rides, fishing, diving and surfing can all be enjoyed locally.
