See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Convento do Carmo

As Brazil’s first luxury historic hotel this beautifully restored convent not only boasts a sense of grandeur thanks to stone flagged floors and age-old cloisters, but beautifully incorporates subtle elements of modernity.

At only 30 minutes from Salvador Airport and based in Salvador's historic quarter of Pelhourinho in Bahia, this establishment has prided itself on having the best rooms and service in the district.

All the rooms are individually and elegantly decorated to reflect the convents past, but have been fitted with modern amenities including LCD televisions, Egyptian cotton bed and bath linens and even a pillow menu. Additionally Convento Do Carmo has a comprehensive range of facilities including a swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym and spa.
