A short drive from Salvador's UNESCO-listed Old Town, in the state of Bahia, this member of the WorldHotels First Class Collection, 40-year-old Bahia Othon Palace Hotel, is part of one of Brazil's most established hotel companies, Othon Hotel Group.
Perched on a headland overlooking the turquoise waves of the Atlantic, guests can enjoy afternoon drinks by the hotel's ocean side swimming pool, or relax at the bar in the lobby inspired by Pelourinho's distinctive architecture.
It is far enough from the bustling city centre and suburbs to be peaceful, but also close to shopping, including the vast modern Barra Shopping Center and its many diverse fine restaurants. A great buffet breakfast is served.
All 278 rooms offer spectacular full or partial views of the ocean, along with the intriguing Pelourinho rooftops. The rooms are large and comfortable too. The exterior and interior of the hotel is under year-round maintenance from the rapid corrosion caused by the coastal weather.
