Asalem has incredible rooms with great views of the bay. The fresh fish cooked in a lemon and ginger sauce is delicious. The owner, Andre and his long-standing staff make it feel like home catering to all needs. We sat in the bar balcony, drinking caprinhas, watching thunderstorms and turtles rising out of the water. Hope to go again despite... More

We stayed 4 nights at Asalem in the Eco-Suite. Asalem is located in the best part of the Abraao bay - being close enough to walk into town but far enough away to relax on the balcony and take it all in. The Eco-suite was amazing. Incredible views from the balcony. Nice and clean inside. Carla and the Staff were... More

BE AWARE of sea salty water in the sink and showers. The hotel owner argues there's a problem of draught in the island, but other pousadas(hotels) don't present the same problem and do offer treated water with no salt. Azalem should either be honest with guests and inform about SALTY water in their tubes or REDUCE the price considerably, since... More

I cannot fault the rooms ; they were GORGEOUS!!!! Spectacular view! Tanquility !!!!! Huge rooms with great modern features. we had a shower in the bedroom just behind the bed. It is def a place to get away from it all. Very romantic. But its a very very slow pace there. We literally chilled and had a lot of couple... More

We had a fantastic 4 nights at Asalem as part of our Honeymoon travelling around parts of South America. The room was clean and well designed with the bed on a kind of separate loft floor. It also had a very reasonably priced minibar and great sea views from just outside the front. The reception/bar/restaurant area had a great setting... More

We had an amazing time at Asalem. Apparently we were quite lucky with the weather because it didn't rain one single day, so we could enjoy all the pleasures of this amazing island during hot sunny days. The whole team is very friendly and we would love to thank in special to Natalia (sweet "Naty") and her boyfriend, the friendly... More

Our stay on the island was to get close to nature and staying in Asalem didn't disappoint. We saw monkeys, hummingbirds and tropical birds. We stayed in one of the older apartments which was lovely if slightly dated. The older apartments are however cheaper. You had to climb a staircase to get to the bed as this was situated over...

The scenery at this place is awesome. Having breakfast one morning we saw a turtle, a hummingbird and monkeys. We ended up spending most of our days at the site were it was calm and private instead of going to the packed beaches. The people is super friendly in a sincere way. The finish is not quite there to call... More
