An excellent for the location is really deserved - the stunning views from the veranda are unique. The hotel is on the steep hillside. Bear in mind that you can get to the hotel either by boat (the pick-up by the hotel boat is included only when you check-in and check-out) or walking on path filled with rocks, roots and through the sea water. The hotel rooms should have been renovated some time ago - esp. the bathroom (some fungus between the tiles). Also to notice is that the rooms are very humid and the noises from the adjacent rooms are clear. A smelly hammock just takes space away. The star rating maybe was appropriate years ago, but now it seems to be too high.
Power black-outs are beyond control of the hotel, but they are the fact (we had two during our two-night stay). The staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is simple but very tasty. The dinner we had at the hotel was excellent, much better than what we tried in the village. The "very good" value rating is thanks to a promotional offer.
- 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
