Surrounded by lush vegetation right on the water with wonderful beach in the bay to the side. Beautiful rooms either modern or small rustic beach houses with kitchen and great family accommodation. The beaches on the far side of the Island are world class white sand. Its an amazing tropical walk through the canopy and Forrest's to reach paradise. Food... More

A rare place where you really can just take a break from the world for a while. My first day was filled with downpours, but the setting and ambience of this small hotel had me sitting very happily on the terrace enjoying the view. If you are lucky enough to meet the owner André, you'll meet both one of the... More

This place is amazing! A little hideaway from the main village. We had the best time here relaxing on the beach! Caipirinhas with fresh fruit, friendly service and delicious food! And yes there is hot water 24/7! We will definitely come back!!

Nice atmosphere, the surroundings are spectacular, tropical romantic. But the hotel has quite low standards, no hot water in the shower. Although they have very nice service. Book a privatare tour with taxi boat and go snorkeling, lagoa azul is very nice although very crowded. Avoid going on the "pirate-ships".

This hotel is the perfect getaway. We had had some busy weeks in Sao Paulo, so it was very needed to be shielded on the hotel. The hotel lies away from the main city, so you feel "in the middle of nowhere", despite you are very close to the city if you want to do something else. Vi stayed at... More

We stayed at Asalem for four nights as part of our honeymoon, and had a wonderful stay. It made a welcoming change to be hidden away in the jungle with the most beautiful views to wake up to. The short boat trip into town is easy and the boat itself is quite an amusement and has to be the slowest,... More

This was one of our stops whilst on honeymoon in Brazil. The venue itself is gorgeous. It's a 5min boat ride away from the hustle and bustle of Ilha Grande town, which made it a perfect honeymoon spot. They have canoes that guest can use to get to near by beaches. Whilst they will pursue you to eat dinner there... More

We had an excellent time during our stay at Asalem. We stayed in an Eco Suite, which was a little bit pricier, but a beautiful room and an even more beautiful view. If you don't mind being a 20 min walk or 5 min water taxi from the village, I highly recommend this Pousada. The complimentary breakfast was very good... More

A little Paradise. Amazing view from our wonderful room. Very friendly staff and owner. Nice breakfast. The best location on the Island. Located in the jungle by the sea. Good hiking trips and beaches right next to the posada. We stayed for four nights, and were sad to leave. We hope to visit the place again soon.
