Occupying a narrow 19th century residence in the heart of Salvador de Bahia’s Old Town, Aram Yami Hotel is an eclectic boutique hotel offering a unique feeling of home right around the corner from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pelourinho. This contemporary, six-suite accommodation is the fulfilled vision of its Barcelona architect owner Juan Piccon Navaro and promises not only personalized service and design, but also a sleek Europe-meets-Bali ambiance and impressive views over the deep blue waters of Salvador’s Bahia de Todos Santos.
The Aram Yami Hotel offers a selection of just six upscale suites, each designed to give the feeling of owning one’s own uniquely-appointed luxury apartment in Salvador’s historic center. Chock full of contemporary character, the interiors are authentically refurbished, adding just a touch of modernism to the building’s original colonial style. The rooms are bright and spacious and come with the comforts of wireless Internet access, flat screen televisions, minibars, and four-poster beds and furnished terraces in select suites. While the décor leans toward modern in its Asian detailing, the suites still manage to feel wholly Brazilian with their waterfront or Old City views and eco-friendly amenities, from solar energy powered air conditioning to organic bathroom amenities sourced from Amazonian herbs. For families or couples seeking more privacy, the two-bedroom master suite takes up the entire ground floor and comes with a second bedroom, private terrace, and plunge pool.
Because it caters to only six rooms, Aram Yami Hotel promises the ultimate personalization in its service. The staff is renowned for their friendliness and attentiveness to each guest’s interests and preferences. Guests wake up to stunning views across the bay, as well as hot breakfasts of delicious Bahian specialties delivered straight to their room every morning. A variety of fresh fruits, cakes, plantains, crepes, and specialty passion fruit mousses are on offer, as is a lobby bar that stays open around the clock for those who crave either a breakfast cocktail or a late evening nightcap by the rooftop pool. The Aram Yami Hotel occupies the tallest building in the quarter, which means the swimming pool and top-floor Panoramic Suite boast some of the most unobstructed and breathtaking panoramas of Bahia de Todos Santos in the city.
The Aram Yami Hotel is a short distance to some of Brazil’s most exciting beaches and hotspots. Just a ten-minute walk away is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Largo do Pelourinho and the Lower City of Salvador. The hotel supports many social service projects in Salvador and is more than happy to introduce guests to the true flavors of the region, whether an authentic capoeira performance, a day trip to Praia do Forte, a private tour of the local beaches, or excursions to the TAMAR turtle sanctuary and the Mercado Modelo, the largest handcraft center in Bahia.Request Information
