Here at Plan South America, we get very overexcited when we discover a place like Butterfly House. Beautifully underdeveloped, but comfortable and luxurious in its simplistic authentic approach; Most guests arrive by boat from a nearby fishing village. We guess that’s how things work in northern Brazil’s Maraú Peninsula!
With domestic flights landing in Ilheus or Salvador to then bring you over by land or by boat, the Marau Peninsula isn’t off limits, it’s just remote. This is perceptively what makes it so special and out of reach, in a good way!
If you’re looking for relaxation, Butterfly House is one of the few options in the area that will provide it apologetically. The emphasis at the House is on homespun charm and character with a beach culture extremely native to Brazil.
Its six rooms – all suites and private bungalows – are individually designed. Thatched grass roofs, Colombian bamboo and 300-year old Brazil nut wood meet warm interiors adorned with Moroccan textiles, French ceramics and local Bahian art.
With the logistic efforts it takes to make way to the Marau Peninsula, we recommend spending at lease 4-5 nights at Butterfly House to make the most of your time.
However, for those considering a 3 night jaunt, have no fear, we can always get you aboard a private charter small aircraft promising a swift arrival for maximum enjoyment.
