The six pousadas in this planned village are nearly identical—all have the same amenities and are of equal quality–though each has a different theme and number of rooms. All have access to an ecotourism agency, a car-rental agency, bars and restaurants, several kilometers of beaches, and shops selling clothing, jewelry, and handicrafts. Each has its own pool. Pousada Gabriela (20 rooms) resembles colonial architecture of downtown Ilhéus, south of Salvador.
It's named after a character from a Jorge Amado novel. With its bright colors, Pousada Carnaval (39 rooms) captures the spirit of Bahia's pre-Lenten festivities. Pousada do Agreste (18 rooms) echoes the colonial architecture of the interior of northeastern Brazil. Art and antiques fill Pousada da Torre (28 rooms, 2 suites), which tries to re-create the Garcia D'Avila mansion at Praia do Forte. As its name implies, Pousada do Pelourinho (38 rooms) is a replica of a house in Salvador's historic district. Pousada Aldeia (20 rooms) makes you feel as if you're staying in a 16th-century coastal village.
