Viver Bahia Pousada

Barra, Salvador

Featuring a bar, shared lounge, garden and free WiFi, Viver Bahia Pousada is located in Salvador, 500 metres from Praia do Farol da Barra and 700 metres from Porto da Barra. The property is around 5 km from Pelourinho, 5 km from Mercado Modelo and 5 km from Lacerda Elevator. The accommodation provides airport transfers, while a bicycle rental service is also available.

At the guest house each room is equipped with a private bathroom. Viver Bahia Pousada is a treasure! It is physically gorgeous, with tremendous quality design in terms of architecture, layout, and material, with every small detail, from the shelves in the rooms to the toaster at breakfast, exquisitely chosen. The place is instantly welcoming, and you know you picked the right place from the second you pull up to the gate. Don't hesitate to book. The breakfast is fantastic, with the GM's mom and dad serving up homemade jams and juices made on the spot, quality coffee and tea, fresh coconut water, and other goodies. The location is wonderful, just 5 minutes walking to Praia da Barra and 10 minutes or so by car to Pelourinho. The area is safe and easy to get in and out of, a perfect base from which to explore Salvador. Most of all, I have to highlight the wonderful people who run Viver Bahia. Aniello, the GM, is a supremely knowledgeable, hospitable, well-traveled and incredibly helpful guy who goes out of his way to make sure you make the most of your time in Salvador and the surrounding area. He's a great conversationalist with a keen eye for design and a clear vision for the business, which he has executed beautifully. His lovely mother and father are a joy to chat with, and help keep the place running smoothly with care. While in Salvador I came down with a bug that sent me to the hospital; Aniello and his family went way above and beyond their responsibility to any guest and helped me in my recovery as though I were family myself. I will always be grateful and they will always be welcome in my home! Ciao bellissimi! Até a próxima!
