In a beautiful place like Ilha Grande, ideally you need to book a pousada which complements the location. Asalem does just that, with a beautiful view and set so you can jump straight into the water, swim to or take a 5 minute walk to one of the island's beaches.
Breakfast is the usual you find in Brazil, including cakes, fresh strawberry juice and the best scrambled eggs we had all trip. Guests can use their canoes and there is a boat which takes you to the centre of town (otherwise it's an easy 20-25 minute trek/trail). We saw turtles here too!! The staff are very friendly and helpful.
This is not a boutique hotel but it's certainly a boutique pousada. Highly recommended and do contact me if you want to ask any questions about it!More
