If your a planning to visit Chapada Diamantina, but is concerned about staying in one of the several low budget pousadas that are there, pick this hotel. Of course it will be more expensive, but you get all the confort you need after a day of trekking or biking. You can relax in the pool and in the steam room.

The hotel's restaurant is also very good. The breakfast is great and included in the price, but it's a good idea to have at least one dinner there as well.

The hotel is located by the side of Lencois River and just accross the bridge of the city center. Check the pictures at the hotel website, which has an english version.

Canto das Aguas means "Music of the water", and this hotel is situated on a most beautiful river where the waters cascade down the granite waterway. I just want everyone to know what a wonderful hotel this is. The setting is beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful. Many of the staff are in the process of learning English, and are only too willing to try to speak it. The food is gourmet all the way. The focus of this hotel is treading lightly on the planet, while providing the best of everything. The original structure is from the late 1800 and was gutted and rebuilt reusing many of the original materials. The hot water is solar powered, recycling and composting is the way of things. And with all this "greeness" they have achieved a 5* hotel. The town of Lencois is a step back into history. It is colourful and interesting. I would encourage anyone to make the journey to this area. The Chapada Diamantini where Lencois is situated is a beautiful area

Unfortunately we only stayed briefly at Cantos das Aguas before leaving for a trek in the Chapada Diamantina National Park, if we return to Lencois we will definitely stay here again but next time for longer!

We arrived early in Lencois off the overnight bus from Salvador, the hotel let us check in early – a blessing after the long journey. Cantos das Aguas is situated right by the river, the sound of which is apparently sometimes so loud that staff in the open sided lobby have trouble hearing the phone ring! This was obviously not an issue when we booked as the process was seamless with good communication via email before our arrival.

We were given a choice of rooms and opted for one with a balcony overlooking the river. The room was clean, good size and tastefully decorated with mini bar, safe, TV & air-con.

The helpful staff at reception arranged for us to have massages later that afternoon in the massage tents located in the hotel gardens. With sound of the river – it was possibly one of the best locations I’ve ever had a massage, a real treat. Ask for Dieter, he gives an excellent Shiatsu, perfect for aching muscles after a trek! The hotel also organised our superb guide Carlos for the 3 day trek in the Chapada Diamantina.

Breakfast is a typical Brazilian buffet of fresh fruit, meats and pastries served in the open sided dining room with a view over the river. We also ate in the restaurant one evening, fantastic tempura to start with followed by one of the best shrimp Moqueca we ate during our stay in Bahia.

Outside of the main restaurant there is also a poolside bar that serves light snacks and yummy cocktails – the Caipra-fruita with fresh pineapple is very good.

We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel for the 3 days we were on our trek. On our return we had several hours before the overnight bus back to Salvador, the hotel allowed us the use of a room so we could take a much needed shower at a reduced rate.

This is a fantastic hotel with modern amenities and a few little luxuries in a superb location with very helpful staff.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel and found it to be an absolutely wonderful experience. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the bus station and a 5 minute walk into the small town center where you can exchange money, get a drink and walk around the night market.

The hotel is built along the river and designed to feel like a villa with outdoor walkways and rooms looking out onto the river and garden. Our room was simple, clean and comfortable with a balcony and hammock overlooking the garden. There are outdoor beds, chairs and canopied massage tables out in the garden/pool area for you to retreat to after a day outdoors cave exploring or hiking. We even ordered personal massages that was a real delight and very affordable for one hour.

The restaurant in-house has excellent food and a good choice of various cuisines so you don't have to go far to seek out a great meal. there is also pool-side meal service if you want to order a snack or eat out in the garden. The service staff speaks English and is extremely friendly. The breakfast in the morning is outstanding where you can order eggs made any style to your liking.

We would not consider staying anywhere else when we return to Lencois.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Canto das Aguas for one night, and were really impressed with the facilities (beautiful pool and grounds), location (next to the river) and particularly with the level of service. Unfortunately my boyfriend was ill for the whole time, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and supportive - bringing us medicinal tea (which worked pretty well), going to the pharmacy for us and offering to take us to the hospital if we needed it. They also let us stay in the room until nearly midnight (we were catching a late bus) and charged us only half a daily rate, having already given us an upgrade to superior for the price of a standard. Overall, it was a beautiful hotel with great staff - we'd recommend it highly, and will hopefully go back one day.

We recently stayed in this small and lovely hotel, it is situated directly at the Lencois river (you hear the water rushing). Some rooms have windows directly to the river and offer a view of the old town (we stayed in such an "up-river, superior room").

The complex is well maintained with nice settings for the swimming pool, bar, and other outside facilities. It is located at the entrance to Lencois, just meters away from the bridge to the old town, in 5min walk you are almost everywhere in Lencois.

The kitchen is excellent, the breakfast can compare to what 5 star hotels may offer (and it is far more personal too). Even if you don't stay there (not exactly cheap for Brazil - we paid roughly 100 Euro / night), go there for dinner when you stay in Lencois - the restaurant is fabulous and affordable - the best food we got during our trip through Brazil (don't miss the dessert).

We really loved this hotel: the atmosphere there is magic! A beautiful garden around the swimming pool overlooks the river. Although we chose standard rooms, we liked them as they are large enough and anything you need is there. Breakfast is excellent!!
