Zank Boutique Hotel: contemporary style and luxury in Salvador de Bahia

Zank Boutique Hotel Salvador de Bahia

The Zank Boutique Hotel is a sophisticated, luxurious place to stay in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. Located in the traditional bohemian quarter of Rio Vermelho, it encompasses a restored historic mansion, a contemporary wing, and a lovely garden filled with coconut trees on a property overlooking the ocean. The hotel has a swimming pool, lounge deck and a spa.

There are only 20 apartments, each of which has a distinctive character. In the Old House, the apartments evoke the baroque, colonial and modern eras; in the Minimalist section, the inspiration for the apartments’ interior design ranges from classic contemporary to tropicalist and neo baroque. The hotel’s location – the Rio Vermelho district – is filled with upscale restaurants and boutiques, but is still close enough to the ocean for those who want to stroll along the sand. Unlike the historic center of Salvador (Pelourinho), the Rio Vermelho neighborhood is a more relaxing, less crowded place to spend your holiday.

Room rates at the Zank start at around $240.
