    About

    Grande Hotel da Barra is steps from area shops, restaurants, and bars, but also within easy reach of many of the sights along the bay. Just 1 km (about a half-mile) away is Farol da Barra beach, where Forte Santo Antonio da Barra has stood since 1534 (making it older than the city of Salvador itself); the fort now houses the Museu Nautico da Bahia, where you can check out archeological finds and learn about the anthropology of Baia de Todos os Santos.

    In Salvador's historic Old Town, Pelourinho, a 20-minute drive north, venture down the wide cobblestone streets, take in stunning colonial-era architecture, and savor traditional dishes. A trip to Pelourinho isn't complete without a stop at Mercado Modelo: take Elevador Lacerda down to the lower city to find this marketplace.

    After a day of exploring, you can unwind by Grande Hotel da Barra's outdoor pool with a cold drink from the poolside bar or indulge in 24-hour room service. A complimentary breakfast is provided each morning.

    Complimentary wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel, and a business center and 9 meeting rooms are provided. Onsite conference and banquet facilities and secure valet parking (surcharge) make event planning a snap. If you're expecting meeting attendees or just need to head out of town, the hotel also offers an airport shuttle service (surcharge).

    An onsite salon and fitness facilities help you look and feel your best during your trip to Salvador. Laundry facilities are available if you're staying a few extra days.

    Accessibility features at the hotel include bathroom accessibility and wheelchair accessibility.

    When you're ready to call it a night, head to your air-conditioned guestroom. You can kick back and watch the cable channels on the television. The convenience of complimentary wireless Internet access is yours, whether you’ve brought your laptop for business or leisure. Direct-dial phones are also provided.
