Pros Secluded location away from main town/port - meant needed to catch a 10min water taxi after dark (20min walk over rocks/through forest not safe in dark or practical with suitcases) but this seclusion gave it a tranquility and privacy unmatched elsewhere. Rooms were bright and airy, clean and comfortable. Food was good value and very tasty - sufficient choice... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2016

We stayed in the Eco suite for three nights and had the most wonderful time! The room is huge and has the best view you could ever wish for (despite a day and half of rain!). The food is excellent - big portions and good value for money, and the happy hour passion fruit caipirinhas were the best we had... More

We arrived on the worst weekend in August had 3 days of rain The staff at Asalem are excellent and will do everything to help you. Breakfast is amazing and the setting is fantastic. However I would not call this luxury, we stayed in the chalets and while they had all necessities they were damp and had no power in... More

Took the girlfriend for just 2 nights. Very very relaxing and tranquil. Helpful and attentive staff. This is a Pousada, not a hotel. Don't expect hair dryers and toothbrushes. Do expect a great dinner menu with all food cooked to order and typical Brazilian breakfast. The higher rates are justified here because of the modern rooms as compared to the... More

We arrived in the pouring rain and had to climb 74 stone steps to our chalet. What a disappointment - it was a basis fisherman's cottage, old fashioned and dark / possibly damp. The water in the shower was a warm trickle, WiFi and electricity were intermittent. In fairness to the super staff they allowed us to move to a... More

We stayed 3 nights and were blessed by good weather, good service, food and plenty of caipirinha happy hours! The amazing staff planned and organised all we wanted to do including dives, tours and romantic candle light dinner by the water. Don't miss the birds in the morning including the rare tiê sangue - the reddest bird you will ever... More

Still can't get over how INCREDIBLE the view was from Eco-Premium. We arrived via Easy Transfer Brasil, and although the boat pickup was a little confusing (and slow) we eventually made it from the main pier to the property. The staff member spoke little English, but was extremely nice and helped us to get situated without issue. I unfortunately spent... More

We really enjoyed the Asalem. Far enough away from town to feel away from it all, but close enough to pop over by boat whenever you want. Staff was very friendly and helpful with everything, including tour booking. Reception / restaurant veranda area is a great place to enjoy a breakfast and/or enjoy the evening. Rooms are rustic but clean... More

The hotel is in a great location view wise and it is very quite as you are the other side of the harbor to the rest of the town. It makes it slightly more tricky to get into town/ back from town after dark as the path aren't lit so you have to take the boat. This only runs once... More

After an early start from Rio, we slept most of the way in the car that we arranged in advance with Asalem, then a short boat trip (30 minutes maybe) we arrived at the main part of the island where the hotel taxi boat was waiting for us. After the hustle and bustle of Rio this was perfect! The staff... 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
