    About

    Discover your own bit of paradise at this small, tropical-style hotel, located directly on one of Bahia's loveliest beaches. Watch the moon rise over the water, bask in the gentle offshore breezes, and explore the clear, calm tide pools teeming with sea life. Porto da Lua is also just a 5-minute walk from Praia do Forte, once a tiny fishing village and now a quaint resort town with shops and restaurants. You'll also be just steps from the Projeto Tamar sea-turtle center, part of a nationwide conservation project. Here, you'll see turtles from wee hatchlings to 20-year-old adolescents. And, from late January to the end of April, Tamar lets visitors witness the turtles hatching and making their way to the ocean. Another must-see: The 500-year-old Castelo Garcia D'avila, about a 10-minute cab ride from the hotel. This excavated castle, one of the first Portuguese colonial settlements in Brazil, features a small museum and panoramic coastal views. Looking for some big-city excitement? Take the 2.5-hour bus ride to Salvador, known as "the capital of happiness" for its laid-back lifestyle and music-filled street festivals.

    Back at Porto da Lua Beach Hotel, you can play in the ocean surf, snorkel in the reef-protected waters, or just soak up the sun on the palm-fringed sands. The hotel can also arrange whale-watching excursions. And when it's time to dine, you'll be happy to know that Porto da Lua offers 2 restaurants: an open-air restaurant on the beach and an indoor dining room overlooking the ocean and reef. The breakfast buffet features fresh tropical fruit, premium coffee, and pastries. At lunch and dinner, you can choose from fresh fish, steak, pasta, and local specialties. Drink a toast to your day with a refreshing Caipirinha, Brazil's national cocktail, or sip the complimentary evening tea from 4-5 PM. Holiday dinners are offered to guests on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Room service is available during limited hours. This 3-story hotel also offers complimentary wireless Internet access and complimentary parking.

    Airy, modern guestrooms open to ocean-view balconies with hammocks-perfect for a lazy afternoon with a good book and a cool drink. When it's time to dream, you'll drift off to the sounds of ocean waves. Rooms also include complimentary wireless Internet access, TVs, electronic safes, minibars, and direct-dial phones. Some rooms are air-conditioned, and all are exposed to cooling sea breezes.
