Perched on a hillside in Salvador da Bahia’s Old Town and overlooking the magnificent Todos Santos Bay, Aram Yami is a paean to colonial charm and contemporary service. Though just minutes from Pelourinho, the hotel is sanctuary of breezy comfort. The original colonial style of the building has been retained, while the interiors reveal just a touch of contemporary coolness. Bountiful Brazilian breakfasts are served en suite, and are not to be missed. Be sure to book the “Top Suite”, as it features a private pool and multiple rooms for larger groups.
