“Beautiful hotel in stunning location”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We spent a week at Kiaroa which is a beautiful hotel in a stunning setting. The beach was incredibly beautiful and the hotel pool was one of the biggest and most interesting designs I'd ever seen. The food was good but not amazing - a bit repetitive. Unfortunately, due to it being low season, several of the activities they advertise did not seem to be on offer ie there was no horse riding because the horses had been taken away for the winter! When we arrived we were given the champagne reception but no tour of the hotel and it's facilities so we had to constantly ask where things were and what was available. Unfortunately, we do not speak Portuguese which caused major problems because, at times, there were no staff around who could speak the languages we could offer ie Italian, Spanish, French and English! This caused constant problems when ordering food and drinks. These factors, along with one or two other little niggles, prevent me from giving five stars - I think this hotel definitely could be, and aspires to be a five star hotel but just falls short of the mark. We still had a very pleasant week though despite the short comings. The two Moorea villas we had were beautiful, clean and very well appointed with lovely individual pools and views

Room Tip: The villas - Bali and Moorea - were beautiful and ideal for teenage families

We had an amazing time here. the resort is stunning as is the surrounding beach. We went in June because we were there for the World Cup. We were probably a bit lucky with the weather which was very pleasant (there is a degree of risk of going at this time of year but while we had rain here and there, we also had plenty of sun). but going off season meant we had the place almost to ourselves.

The staff were all extremely nice - very attentive but also careful to leave us in peace.

It isn't cheap because it is luxury but it is worth the money.

If you go, definitely worth the 80 minute walk along the beach to the lovely village of Barra Grande.

Kiaroa is located at Marau peninsula about 40 minutes flight from Salvador,Bahia.Unless you want to bump 120 kms from Ilheus flying from Salvador in the Resort's small plane is the best alternative.The resort is beautiful and the service is very friendly and effective.The food is very good although there is a lack of good Bahia's food such as Acaraje or Vatapa.The wifi is unreliable and mobile phone does not work.

Room Tip: Pick the Bali suites.

Paradise on earth, Marau is one of the last wild places in south Bahia. This small (less than 30 rooms, from suites to bangalos) provides personalized service, amazing infra structure, with the easy going way that is so dear to Bahia. Get out of the car by the time you are arriving and someone will provide you a glass of champagne and a cleaning towel. By this time, you would be surrounded by nature, and I doubt weather to enjoy the wonderful pool, the spa, the beach front on the the deck....stressful...
Some tips:
There is a flight from Salvador directly to the resort, Wednesday and Sunday, highly recommended
If you choose Ilheus airport, instead of getting a 4x4 lift all the way, opt for a short (40 min) drive, included I'm the package, to Camamu, and then a fast boat (not included) to Barra Grande, 5 minutes from the resort.

Room Tip: Ask for a bangalo close to the limit of the property. I would go for #4 malind

I've been with my boyfriend and it was an amazing relaxed week. All was like a dream!!!!!!! You can have relaxed time but you can also swimming in the ocean or surfing. You can watch the ocean while you're drinking a delicioius moijito. The bungalow are enormous and so romantic!!!!

Room Tip: You have to choose bungalow... they are wonderful

The place looks stunning and I found the service quality to be excellent. There is the most amazing beach, virtually deserted, at the back of the complex and the whole place seemed very well run to me. The food at dinner was a bit ordinary for the price I have to say.

The main downside though is the 2 hour drive from the airport. There is one hour over a really uncomfortable sand track. I thought from the video a plane was arranged. I guess not always.

Overall, a stunning place.....but maybe not 1400rs a night standard of stunning.

We had a very nice stay in the Kiaora Eco Lodge. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms, delicious breakfast and the chefs suggestion in the evening was always superb. We have rented 2 quads for 2 days to travel on our own, this way we could discover the beaches and the restaurants outside the hotel. The guys went fishing one day, unfortunately they didn't cath a lot. The only minus was the connection with internet (too slowly). But overall we were very content about our stay. The plane was everytime right on time. Nice welcome drink (champagne). We can recommend this hotel.
