Hotel-Pousada Porto da Lua
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in Praia do Forte
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2014

After a few quick and fun filled days in Salvador, it was time for some relaxation in Praia do Forte to celebrate our one year anniversary. We came here because of the surf nearby (for my husband) and fell in love with the beauty all around us. The hotel is right on the beach -- we had a third floor room which had amazing views and the ocean breeze. The room and room service were kept clean daily (a must with the sand), the food at breakfast was delicious (try the tamales when they have them), the caiparinhas were beautifully made and strong, and the front desk service was extremely helpful. If I could choose one place to go back to in Brazil, this would be it.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are ocean front so you will not be disappointed.

We had a very nice stay at this Pousada. Located directly (10m) at the beach of Praia do Forte! Good food, nice and clean rooms. Breakfast offering was fine.

Two minor points: almost noboday speaks English there, so brush up your portuguese. The last 2km of the road to the Pousada is a very bumpy road with big water-filled holes in the road. This needs to be fixed!

Apart from that, great location to stay. The village is even more beatiful - a true jewel!

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view!

Attractive small hotel with comfortable accommodation.
Very helpful and attentive staff, but with limited Englsh.
The restaurant was excellent with a superb menu. Huge breakfast, and the plus of afternoon tea.

The hotel is on the beach but you have to walk some distance to get to an area of
sea that isnt rocky. To get to the town involves walking along the beach or a ten minute walk on
a bad path.
Praia do forte is billed as a laid back fishing village but that is not evident, and though
the restaurants and the shops are plentiful and excellent, it is a charmless place that
could be anywhere.

A wonderful small eco-hotel in a nice village. Sunrise over the sea, soft warm waves for swimming and diving. A wide selection of fresh local foods and brazilian pastry for breakfast, an architect's marvel as bedroom designed by famous Wilson Netto. Friendly faces at the reception and at the bar that serves excellent Caipirinhas. Plus, there is the friendly Swiss owner, Markus, knowledgable about local history, turtles crossing the atlantic. And, helpful when the computer needs a plug to get some power.

Porto da Lua Pousada, Praia Do Forte, Bahia - Brasil

This is the most charming Pousada. A tri level building with large verandas that over look the ocean. The hammock is a nice touch. Being right on the ocean makes this beautiful inn perfect for exploring the beach. The location is on the extreme southeastern end of the community so there is more privacy and hardly any noise this also makes this place special. The Pousada is away from the centro area so as you can imagine it is particularly quiet and peaceful.

The room is comfortable and spacious. A king bed dressed in a red caftan is delightful. Simple decorations, the decoration is the building and grounds itself. The housekeeping is exceptional! The breakfasts are filled with traditional Brazilian delicacies like pāo de queijo. The high light is the local fruits so flavorful and satisfying. The dinners are great as well, fresh sea foods.

The staff are friendly and kind. English is not well spoken among all staff but I found no problems communicating and the staff encouraged me to practice my Portuguese, I really liked that. I had many teachers in the staff members. I felt right at home, even better.... Val is the onsite Massage Therapist and she is a treasure. Book the 2 hour massage it is worth it!!! Massage with the sounds of the ocean and the breeze of the sea, simply wonderful!!!

Thank you: Quencia, Viviane, Wellington, Andressa, Xanda, Famile, Val, and Fanaina.....

I highly recommend the Porto da Lua Pousada, in Praia Do Forte, Bahia - Brasil.

They get many stars!

Room Tip: Choose the third floor, more privacy and better views.

My wife and I have stayed here on several occasions over the past ten years. It is one of several pousadas in the aldeia dos pescadores, all giving good value, but this one is perfectly located on the beach. Breakfast is included as well as afternoon tea. The pousada is comfortable, the service is good the breakfast ample, the restaurant does excellent fish and superb moquecas, in my view the best value in praia do forte.
The lawn extends to the beach and the beach has excellent snorkeling. It is far enough away from the action of Praia do Forte to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to the vila (5 min along the beach) and the Projeto Tamar, that it is convenient for entertainment whenever you want.

Room Tip: in our view second floor beach front balcony rooms give the best view and convenience location, alth...

I loved everything about staying at Porto da Lua. Jamaima was really helpful in organising an excellent guide for me and all the staff were charming. The location is ideal, right on the idyllic beach of Praia do Forte. In the morning, you can walk out of your door and almost have the beach to yourself. Also, the resort in the evening is excellent with wonderful restaurants. I was lucky to see a Capoeira demonstration there. All in all an excellent stay. I wish everyone at Porto da Lua success for the future.
