With a menu created the French chef marc le Dantec, from the Restaurant Figo in São Paulo, also owned of the Inn, our restaurant features local cuisine with a touch of sophistication.

The lounge with capacity for 80 people follows the clean, contemporary design of the place mixing rusticity and sophistication. The heart of the room is a four and a half meter long certified wood table. The roof is another highlight, boasting sculpture-like 40 steel lighting fixtures hanging at different heights.


swimming pool and garden

A place to meet and have a rest, the pool lies on a large wooden deck with lounging deck chairs, amid a tropical garden surrounded by palm trees and lush local vegetation.

Guests can enjoy shade and fresh water underneath a large pergola or maybe a drink at the irresistible pool bar where lunch is also available. Early evenings set the tone for a more outdoor lounge atmosphere. Even at night, in the cooler sea breeze, the pool is still the favorite place for long conversations with a glass of good wine under starlit skies.


decoration and design

Consuelo Jorge´s project highlights Bahia´s rustic charm, the style of old fishermen´s huts and the “Bahian way of life”. The grand rooms with tall ceilings appear cozy due to the intelligent use of wood, the light and nude tonalities and the eclectic style period furniture blend together in surprising ways.

The furniture tells a bit of the history of the region: treasures coming from antique shops next to pieces made by local craftsmen and carpenters are capable of turning wood into the chicest of counter tops. Adding to the mix some contemporary pieces such as corten steel lights and natural fiber chairs with a modern atmosphere and Bahia´s cool vibes and it is done!

In short an enchanting collection of references. A rare combination of sophistication, lightness and simplicity reflecting the essence and great beauty of Espelho Beach.
