Overlooking the ocean, this boutique hotel in Salvador's desirable Rio Vermelho neighborhood is ideal for a romantic getaway. This Zank Boutique Hotel is just a 5-minute stroll from the soft sands and sparkling surf of Paciência Beach. Bustling Pelourinho, the historical heart of the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is 6.5 km (4 mi) north - close enough for an easy visit, yet far enough from the crowds. Rio Vermelho itself offers an enticing array of restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as handsomely restored 19th-century buildings.
Like the neighborhood, Zank Boutique Hotel is a harmonious blend of traditional and new. The hotel comprises a historical home and a modern building connected by a verdant garden. You could laze away a sunny afternoon on a sun lounger by the outdoor pool. You can ease your muscles in the steam room, or take a dip in the spa tub -pure bliss! Massages, facials, and nail treatments are available in the spa. Business travelers can take advantage of the 24 hour business center and complimentary wireless Internet access. When it's time to dine, head to Zank Boutique Hotel's chic restaurant for Brazilian and international cuisine with a gourmet touch. Brazilian artistry is found throughout the hotel, with original furnishings by Bahian artisans. The hotel also offers airport transportation and an area shuttle for a fee.
With 20 air-conditioned guestrooms, many with sea views, Zank Boutique Hotel is small enough for friendly, personalized service yet large enough to ensure privacy. LCD TVs are available in each room. Guests can plan their next day or email friends back home using the complimentary wireless Internet access. Other touches include a minibar and complimentary toiletries. Bathrooms feature jetted tubs.
