Casa Petunia Pousada Boutique
Ranked #2 of 159 Salvador B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Casa Petunia is owned by the most extraordinary couple with a history of involvement with some of the greatest Brazilian artists and musicians. The stunning house very much reflects the couple's history and their passions. We happened to stay there while making a documentary about Brazilian music, and Marcos went out of his way to help, introducing us to some extraordinary friends and colleagues form the music scene and the arts. He made our stay enjoyable and intimate, while contributing to the making of the story. Just ask him about any of the great names and you'll be amazed. In fact you might bump into some of them at Casa Petunia.

Well, definitely Casa Petunia is the best pousada to stay in Salvador Bahia. Honestly they are better than a hotel because of many things I will mention now. Marcos and Petunia helped us a lot to make our trip wonderful. Me & my wife felt as if we are staying at my uncle sweet home in Bahia. Marcos & Petunia are really lovely people. Why I recommend them ?
Because of these factors :
1- Location is excellent ( I recommend Barra to stay in). Near the nice beach of Barra. Not far from the city center (10 mins driving). And better than the crowed or unsafe places in Bahia.
2- you can’t discover the beauty of Salvador alone. You need a tour guide. Marcos was soooo kind sweet man who treated us like family and sometimes driving us to the area we want.
3- the value is very good comparing to hotels.
4- They do not treat people as clients. They love what they do.
5- amazing experience with sweet tender Brazilian family.

We spent There 4 nights ( although 3 nights is enough in Bahia ) because we wanted to watch ( Brasil v Italia ) match & we had great time that we doubt to have such time if we went to normal hotel.

Room Tip: If you are recently married or couple i recommend to have the master bedroom with private bathroom...

Without hesitation we can say that this is the best Pousada we stayed at during 3 weeks in Brasil! The rooms are fresh, clean, very comfortable with airco and large flat screen TV, above the standard of everything else we have seen. The hospitality, friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts was amazing. The first night (as we arrived after dark), Marcos drove us to a restaurant of our choice. Also the rest of the staff was very professional. The breakfasts were also the very best we got; plenty of fresh exotic fruit, daily different juices, delicious local pastries (tapioca, pão de queijo, folinha de maçã, ...), home made marmelade and much more. The Pousada is quietly located in the nice neigbourhoud of Barra and withing walking distance from the beach, shopping center and famous Farrol. We stayed 4 days (1 day in a nice triple room, 3 days in an apartment) and wish we would have booked for a longer period. We will not easily forget our stay in Pousada Petunia and hope we will ever have another opportunity in the future to go back there. Strongly recommended.

Having just finished my stay at Casa Petunia Pousada Boutique, I can confidently say that it is one of the most wonderful, hospitable and enjoyable accommodations I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. We were welcomed with coconut water and from then our stay was nothing short of perfect. The owner, Marcos, and his staff seriously could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Marcos speaks perfect English and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was action-packed and pleasurable. I could go on and on about the 10/10 service, but I also need to rave about the beautiful decor of the Pousada. It is fitted out with lovely Balinese furniture, unusual for Brazil but gives the place a very eclectic, homey, tropical feel. The rooms are spacious, and also wonderfully decorated, they are extremely clean and the facilities in top condition. When I asked for an umbrella, a hair dryer, anything, it was given to me. Breakfast is delicious and served by an extremely sweet woman who continuously brings out new and exciting things to try, some changing daily. But the standard fruit, bread, cheese, eggs, tapioca is all available daily as well. Marcos took care of our every need in terms of sight-seeing, drivers, dinner suggestions, our odd room requests! Everything! All with a smile on his face and with a genuine desire to help in any way he could. Overall, I'd best describe the Pousada as quaint, homely and beautiful. Everyone who has said that it is like staying with a friend is right, but don't underestimate the quality of the place either. It is a fully functioning, beautifully decorated boutique hotel that just happens to have the most friendly owner I've ever met. It's great, if ever I went to Salvador again this would be my first choice, no questions asked.

Unlike most of the traditional hotels , this was a new good experience. Marcos , the owner , is always available to give informations and to provide a pleasant stay. The breakfast in very good with local food but can be customized to individual demands. The rooms are confortable with cable tv and air conditioning. If you like traditional services go to a hotel. But if you want a customized experience , you should try it.

We had a wonderful stay in Casa da Petunia. The owners are adorable and know Bahia and the region by heart. They helped us planning a fantastic holiday along the costa do dende and had many nice tips for the nightlife in Salvador. Breakfast was excellent and had the best of traditional dishes. The location in Barra is ideal (close to the beach, the famous Farol da Barra, shopping mall and restaurants) and safe. We can definitely recommend and would give 6 instead of 5 stars!

Wir hatten einen super Aufenthalt im Casa da Petunia. Die Besitzer sind wundervoll und kennen die Gegend in- und auswendig. Das hat uns bei der Planung unseres Urlaubs an der Costa do Dende sehr geholfen. Das Fruehstueck war sehr gut – es gab viele traditionelle Gerichte der Region. Die Lage im Stadtviertel Barra ist ideal (in der Naehe mehrerer Straende, dem Leuchtturm von Barra, Einkaufszentren und Restaurants) und sicher. Wir koennen einen Aufenthalt definitiv empfehlen und wuerden 6 statt 5 Sterne geben!
