Kiaroa is located at Marau peninsula about 40 minutes flight from Salvador,Bahia.Unless you want to bump 120 kms from Ilheus flying from Salvador in the Resort's small plane is the best alternative.The resort is beautiful and the service is very friendly and effective.The food is very good although there is a lack of good Bahia's food such as Acaraje or...

Paradise on earth, Marau is one of the last wild places in south Bahia. This small (less than 30 rooms, from suites to bangalos) provides personalized service, amazing infra structure, with the easy going way that is so dear to Bahia. Get out of the car by the time you are arriving and someone will provide you a glass of... More

I've been with my boyfriend and it was an amazing relaxed week. All was like a dream!!!!!!! You can have relaxed time but you can also swimming in the ocean or surfing. You can watch the ocean while you're drinking a delicioius moijito. The bungalow are enormous and so romantic!!!!

The place looks stunning and I found the service quality to be excellent. There is the most amazing beach, virtually deserted, at the back of the complex and the whole place seemed very well run to me. The food at dinner was a bit ordinary for the price I have to say. The main downside though is the 2 hour... More

We had a very nice stay in the Kiaora Eco Lodge. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms, delicious breakfast and the chefs suggestion in the evening was always superb. We have rented 2 quads for 2 days to travel on our own, this way we could discover the beaches and the restaurants outside the hotel. The guys went fishing one... More

The fact that this resort is over 100km by road from the mainland is no excuse for the poor state of the resort, the hugely unimainative food, the unavailability of many of the facilities and the ridiculous prices. Very little works, some examples: The games room has nothing in it other than about 10 falling apart soft-back books in German.... More

We regret that it has been raining the whole period of stay and we understand that the dream trip to the paradise beach was tainted due to bad weather. When the expectation of a journey is frustrated by bad weather it is natural looking for defects to minimize frustration. This is a claim that goes against all the compliments of... More

This resort does have a very good location but we did not agree that this resort warranted the 5 star rating that it gives itself. We read of poor staff attitudes prior to our departure and took this issue up with our agent who checked it out. We had problems checking in being told on arrival that our room was... More

Barbara G, Diretor de vendas at Kiaroa Eco-Luxury Resort, responded to this review

In this case, the agency asked us a Tropical Luxury Room. We gave an up grade to another accommodation When the client arrived at the hotel, he hadn't liked the accommodation, so we offered the available accommodation in that moment. This is a common practice in any hotel, if the customer does not like the accommodation and if there is... More

Certainly not a luxury resort. very disappointed with the room (standard) very small bathroom with no bath only shower. Paltry toiletries and no tissues which I had to ask for as I had a very bad cold when I arrived. I was luckier than some Americans we met who were staying in a villa for a week - she was... More

There are many good things about this hotel. However, it lacks in a couple of key areas which makes the whole experience underwhelming and poor value. Let's start with the good stuff. The location is beautiful and remote and when you step off the private plane onto the private runway it's pretty special. The entertainment at the hotel, run by... More

Having been to many beach resorts worlwide, must say that whoever is looking for long deserted beaches , exclusivity , few guests around , friendly service and warm sea water ... this is the place. Not many activities available , but those that we have done (boat trip and quad tour) are quite interesting. Above all , you will not... More
