“Everything I wanted”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

I am a solo traveler and was looking for somewhere friendly, secluded, relaxing and on a gorgeous beach. Thats exactly what I found at Butterfly House. Lovely property (the pictures say it all - the images are completely accurate, which many travelers will know is not always the case with pictures provided by management!), amazing food cooked up by chef Elias, friendly staff, and the most wonderful breakfasts - really unbeatable. If you are travelling alone its no problem as its really friendly and the couple of run the place and Elias the master chef will keep you company in the evening or you can have a nice chat in the cosy little garden bar with the other guests. The beach is absolutely PERFECT for runners - mile after mile of firm white sand. Great room, heaps of movie channels in English, lovely comfy 4 poster bed, room was always made up whilst I was at breakfast. Loved it.

Remarkable performance of managers Alienor (France ) & Damian ( Australia ) as well as Chef Elias who masters anything in his kitchen.

I spent a week there with my husband on may 2013. We had a wonderful experience. Since we had 7 days around, I could check other places and I can say that this pousada, really cute one, is by far the best of Peninsula do Maraú! The price is totally ok for all the amazing rooms and service you get. The managers, the chef and everyone around are so friendly, so nice people that made our time incredible. If you want a desert beach, a quiet place with the best food, best drinks and great service, don't hesitate to choose Butterfly. We are going back there in July with a couple of friends!

Indico de olhos fechados! Fomos MUITO bem recebidos. A Pousada é linda, bem cuidada, charmosa e a praia deserta e limpa. Alugue o quadríciculo e passeie pela península ou fique pela pousada desfrutando das delícias do Chef Elias e descansando nas espreguiçadeiras a beira mar. Vou voltar em breve e se não trocaria a pousada de jeito nenhum! De longe, a melhor da região. relação custo/ benefício incrível.

Room Tip: the best one is Almirante but the one right next to it is also incredible. O melhor é o Almirante...

Seriously, if you are in Bahia you would be mad not to stay at Butterfly House.

It is stunning and by far the best hotel around. The area is beautiful and amazingly deserted.

The beach is great and there is loads to do from diving, to boating on the lagoon, or just chilling in a hammock.

All in all Five out of Five

The hotel only opened in November, but what a find, luxury on the beach. Wonderful design and architecture, attentive service, amazing rooms and cottages each with their own character.
Stroll on the beach by moonlight with or without clothes you will meet no one!
Great place for Christmas or Easter and exclusive place for quiet wedding or honeymoon.
We will certainly go back and brave the bumpy road for the hour it takes to get there off the beaten track.Check it out before it gets found on www.butterflyhousebahia.com.br

Room Tip: Any room either in main building three doubles or one of the five cottages

If you want some peace and quite and good company this is the place. For the money it is the
best option in this area. I have been traveling for 4 months around S.A. and was looking for a
cool down spot for a few weeks before heading home to the cold in Canada. I stayed at a few
places here before walking into this little Nirvana. This place gets the Tony award for best
overall accommodation on my travels through South America. Cheers.
