One of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Ridiculously overpriced for what it is. Bugs in the room, including in the bed. Mold and rust in bathroom area. No wifi in rooms, only in common area. Breakfast was terrible. I have had better at hostels before. Service was terrible. The boat didnt even come and pick us up, even... More

We loved our stay at Asalem. The friendly staff knows their turf and were able to help us make the most out of our stay. The hotel's location away from the hustle-and-bustle of town was a plus. Also, for what it's worth, the place is gay friendly. When we go back to Isla Grande, we will definitely stay at Asalem.

We stayed there 31.march to 2. april. Loved the site of the hotel. Loved the rooms. Loooved the fod and drinks. And love that they try to focus on being enviromental friendly. Hope the visitors follow that through. It was easy to get the calm relaxed island feeling while staying here.

Asalem is quiet, lovely and beautiful, on a hillside overlooking the wide bay with the harbor and main village of the island. It's in the middle of the nature, and very calming. The rooms were basic, but that's what we expected - they were clean and pretty. The taxi boat takes you to the village, and will fetch you back... More

Perched on a hillside overlooking the perfect harbor is this little gem, Asalem. I'd say this is one of the most idyllic getaways I've visited. Staff are helpful and friendly, food (breakfast included, dinner as you wish) was fresh and tasty, rooms basic and clean. The water beguiles and the beaches are some of the most beautiful around. Brazilians, I... More

My girlfriend & I stayed at Asalem for a week in March 2014. Hotel is clean, quiet, safe & in a gorgeous location. Staff were really friendly & helpful. 20 min walk or 5 min boat ride from Abrao. Breakfast was delicious & we even had a visit from a turtle one morning! If u feel like treating yourself this... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Eco Premium Suite, with comfy lounge chairs on the balcony and a killer view! Secluded and peaceful, it was lovely showering with the view and waking up in the morning, pulling back the curtains and seeing the colours of the bay. 2 for 1 drinks during Happy Hour (5pm to 7pm) at the bar...

My Fiance and I stayed in Asalem recently and had an amazing time there. The place is located off the main drag in the town, and is nestled near a path that leads to a couple of the local beaches in Ilha Grande. We found the staff to be incredibly helpful during our stay (Thank you Vanessa and Co!). Willing... More

We spent three beautiful days at Asalem...originally it was supposed to be just 2 nights, but once we got there and saw our accommodations in the Eco Honeymoom suite, we decided to stay longer. Beautiful location, relaxing laid-back vibe, great service. As other reviewers said, it's rustic, but we found it just perfect. Also loved the asalem boat, our means... More

We stayed here on the first stage of our honeymoon for Christmas 2013. The place is literally paradise. We stayed in the Eco Honeymoon suite which was out of this world. Beautiful room with a beautiful view. Felt like you were the only people there but only a skip to the bar/restaurant. If you want out and out luxury this... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
ASALEM is a seaside hideaway situated in Ilha Grande, a protected reserve of natural land where no cars are allowed. All our 5 enchanting waterfront suites are surrounded by the rain forest that overlooks the spectacular Bay of Abraäo. This proximity to the ocean offers rare, intimate glimpses of sea creatures such as starfish and turtles, as well as abundant schools of fish. The forest brings frequent visitors, including monkeys, squirrels, fireflies, blue butterflies and a wide variety of exotic tropical birds. This unspoiled peace of paradise is the perfect spot for honeymooners looking for privacy: we are 20 minutes apart from the main village walking in an accessible path or 5 minutes by the taxi boat we provide. Apart from the taxi boat service, available 24/7, we can arrange boat trips, transfers, massages, scuba diving, snorkeling and guided hikes. ... more   less
