Hello! We are the Rochas (a Brazilian/English couple), and our Pousada Encanto de Itapoan (a small hotel or a guesthouse / bed & breakfast) is ideally situated for those wishing to avail themselves of both the fabulous city of Salvador da Bahia and of Salvador’s most fabulous beaches.

We also have a strong affinity for Brazilian music; it sets the tone for our establishment. Our breakfast (including an expansive array of tropical fruits and juices) is served poolside, and our rooms come equipped with queen-sized beds, hammocks and air-conditioning, internet connections, frigobars, cable television and safes.

We pay minute attention to every detail having to do with the comfort and security of our guests, and we are here to offer personal orientation in a way you’ll understand: Restaurants, nightlife, beaches and barracas, acarajés and barzinhos, music, history, and tours — we know the scene and we’ll fill you in.”Encanto” is Portuguese for “Enchantment”, and we like to think that our Pousada offers exactly that from its privileged position in one of Salvador’s most storied neighborhoods.
