My husband and I just wrapped up our 6th annual visit to Asalem. It was wonderful, as usual. Our visit to Asslem is always the high point of each passing year, Andre, Bianka, Carla, Ivan, Zaccheus, Selena, Lorena, the cook, and the maid staff (as well as the pousada's sweet dog and cute cat) work as a team to make...

If you look for a romantic place and paradise, you have to go to Asalem! Kind and friendly staff.The beautiful beach Lopes Mendes is nearby. You have to take the boat and look at the island. Amazing view! I recommend Eco-Honeymoon Suite!

- Setting is idyllic, unique, a complete treat to wake up to. Owner's photography is striking. - Chef is the best on the island. Get fresh fish in daily. Try fish+ coconut and fish moqueca. - Happy hour: 2for1 caiprinhas. Often made with fruits from their garden! - Andre and his team are so welcoming and accommodating. - Ezequias always...

Ihla Grande is a stunning island, and all we felt we needed was a simple, understated place to stay from which we could explore the surroundings. We stayed in an eco suite, essentially a room slotted straight into the landscape with a view of the bay from its balcony. Stunning. There was no other room below or beneath us, so...

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...

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
