Wow! There are few words that do Asalem justice. My husband and I booked Asalem for a stay at Ilha Grande during our honeymoon. Asalem outdid our expectations; we will never forget our stay. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Their boat met us at the dock on a rainy day. When we arrived at the hotel we found...

We have hesitated a lot before selecting asalem, but we did not regret it. The location is great overlooking the bay of abrao while you feel isolated. The view from the restaurant is great and quite relaxing. This is a small pousada, so you dont fell like you are in a hotel. We stayed in the new eco suite at...

We stayed here for 5 nights on the second part of our honeymoon. The location is absolutely incredible, nestled at the foot of the mountainside overlooking the picturesque main bay of Ilha Grande, but far enough away from the main village of Abrao to feel isolated, peaceful and extremely tranquil. We stayed in the EcoLodge which are slightly more expensive...

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending a family wedding on the island. Service was great with staff, especially Carla, going out of their way to help. Rooms were clean and simple and well designed although not as incredible as the photos on the website would have you believe.

We had high expectations but it was a disappintment. Although the room we got was large and nice, very modern, with a view of the sea it didn't match the very high price we payed. the terraces are so crowded there is no privacy. You sit near and on top of your neighbors so at any moment they see and...

We stayed on Ilha Grande 2 years ago and had spotted this place whilst on a boat trip. Returning to the island it seemed the obvious place to go - the team are incredibly helpful and friendly- they arranged a transfer from our previous stay and we were met at the pier by the taxi boat and a really warm...

We booked here as part of a Brazilan tour organised by Imagine Latin America (who I would thoroughly recommend, with no motive other than as an impressed customer). We had a standard room, which was fairly basic but quite adequate and with a very comfortable bed. The minor drawback with Asalem is that there are no cushions on any of...

We loved our short but perfect stay here in December. The pousada is nicely located at a short distance with beautiful views of Abrahão Village. We stayed at the Eco suite which had the biggest and best bed ever and the panoramic glass shower has an incredible view. Couldn't be more romantic and definitely worth the extra money for a...

We stayed at Asalem in Dec 2012 and had a lovely time. It was the last stop of a year-long trip in Latin America, so we splurged and treated ourselves to this little bit of paradise. The standard rooms aren't the newest... I personally think for the price they could be updated. However the bed was insanely comfortable! And we...

Our adorable labrador suffers from a disease of the thyroid gland that controls the body’s metabolism, which is a common issue among labradors. His diet is carefully under supervision – a special light food given in small portions divided in separate times of the day. Also, labradors are predisposed to certain joint problems, and he want's spared. In addition, he...

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
