The villa is a luxury eco-resort located in the Northeastern state of Bahia. With eight beautiful bungalows, a crystal clear swimming pool, a delicious restaurant, and extensive tropical gardens, it is the ultimate getaway for those seeking adventure, relaxation and luxurious accommodation.

Situated on the Maraú Peninsula and 15 kilometers from the nearest village of Barra Grande, the villa is in a very private location surrounded by white-sand beaches, freshwater lakes, rain forests and local indigenous tribes. The entire region is part of a protected conservation area, and is therefore free of commercial development or high-rise buildings – just natural beauty. The entire structure is eco-friendly and has practically no carbon footprint, an outstanding example of eco-luxury in South America.

There are eight beautifully decorated bungalows on the property, each with their own balconies and lush garden views. The bamboo and reclaimed nut-wood walls and thatched roofs of the bungalows meld into the jungle, while the interiors showcase art from around the world.

The villa, located on the ocean side of the property, is the main building where you will find three suites, the bar and the hotel restaurant, Anna Banana, which serves French, Asian and Brazilian fusion cuisine. The balcony of Anna Banana is the perfect place to take in the views of the ocean, read a book or enjoy a snack. There are many other areas to spend your time, including the crystal clear swimming pool, the pavilion where you can relax during the day or sip cocktails in the evening, and the extensive gardens, which have hammocks and recliners perfect for lounging any time of the day.

The villa is the ultimate spot for groups of friends looking to have fun, families looking for adventure, and is also great for events - including corporate team building trips, yoga workshops or family reunions.

Area description

Butterfly House is situated on the Maraú Peninsula, at the point where the Camamu Bay (the third biggest bay in Brazil) meets the sea. The Maraú Peninsula is a paradise of pristine beaches, fresh water lakes, tropical forests, extensive rivers and beautiful waterfalls. The small fishermen's village is enriched by a diverse group of people from all across the globe - from Brazilian designers, Italian filmmakers, Swiss architects, to American artists - who came to Maraú to escape the world for just a few days...or weeks.

The charming village of Barra Grande is 15 km away and offers a variety of entertainment options, including many lovely restaurants.

To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your trip. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.
