The city of Salvador in Bahia boasts an authentic blend of two strong cultures which comprises a great reflection of the city itself and the people who live there. In the old town of Santo Antonio Além do Carmo, in the cidade alta de Salvador (Upper City) there is an exotic and unique boutique hotel called the Aram Yami Hotel. The highlight of this lovely hotel is the stunning views, the most impressive on the Bay of all Saints.
Salvador Old Town
The Aram Yami Hotel features a stylish and intimate bar open to guests 24 hours a day. In addition, the views on offer of the cidade baixa de Salvador (Lower City) the Bay of All Saints full of ships and Itaparica Island, as well as the Senhor do Bonfim Church atop Holy Hill and Fort Sao Marcelo make the Aram Yami Hotel the perfect place for an unforgettable stay in Salvador. Finally, the quiet neighbourhood of Santo Antonio Alem do Carmo, boasting a rustic feel, was a symbol of modernity at the height of the Portuguese Colonial Period. The old walled city extended beyond the city doors, one of which was Porta do Carmo (Carmo Door) with this land eventually becoming part of the Santo Antonio Além do Carmo district. There visitors will find the Saint Anthony’s Fort and the Church of Saint Anthony, as well as the historic center Pelourinho, a short distance away. Boasting old mansions with Portuguese colonial architecture, this charming neighbourhood features small hotels and charming restaurants.
Aram Yami Hotel in Salvador
The Aram Yami Hotel in Salvador combines the authenticity of a Portuguese colonial building with the luxury and contemporary. However, none of the original features in the elaborate décor or the service has been relinquished, the reason for which the Aram Yami Hotel won the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice™ 2013 award in the “Small Hotels” and “Best Service” categories. Like any good home in Bahia, the owners Juan and Lola offer great hospitality for an extremely comfortable stay.

The hotel has bilingual receptionists, and breakfast is on offer. In addition, there is a swimming pool, bar service and internet, as well as additional services such as an airport shuttle, massages and guided tours. The delicious breakfast includes tropical fruit and typical local food. We recommend that you try the couscous which guests can enjoy with butter and a fried egg, or with milk and sugar giving this dish a unique flavour.
Finally, in the evening make sure you take advantage of the Aram Yami Hotel’s two pools. There you can admire the fantastic sunsets over the bay whilst enjoying an authentic caipirinha prepared with regional fruits such as cashew, umbu (Brazil plum), passion fruit and star fruit, amongst others.
