I don't think I can go on enough about this beautiful hotel. Granted it wouldn't take much to out do the horror of Rio's 'El Misti', but we certainly lucked out with this choice. We had seen high ratings on lonely planet and trip advisor and they don't even begin to give it justice.
The communal areas are very Balinese in style and we had a private hammock on the balcony, what more could you ask for! Oh a bar fridge, tennis table and a load of DVDs to play in your room if the weather turns.
The staff too are AMAZING!
We arrived at close to midnight after amending our stay 3times and they couldn't have been more accommodating.

... reading in our room, the heavens opened and the power went! Despite our rumbling tummies, Chris was reluctant to venture out into the heavy rain, imagining a deserted town in darkness. Eventually with our macs and head torches on, our walking boots made their debut as we tentatively made our way out into the darkness... Turns out the whole town has generators except for our hostel. The 'adventure' was fun whilst it lasted 3 minutes! A delicious dinner ...
... couple who`s swimwear left little to the imagination. Our day was filled with snorkeling in various picturesque bays which suprisingly was not ruined by being surrounded by dozens of party boats. We stopped for a lovely, if not a bit expensive, lunch of chicken, rice and a bean dish which we were informed is a local stock food and eaten most meals.
In the evening we had a few drinks with Luke, chilled in our hostel and prepared for the next day`s trip to Paraty.
... for a kebab restaurant we wanted to go to yesterday but was too busy (or more accurately we were too hungry to wait). I had a chicken and beef kebab (the on the stick kind) which really hit the spot. This is the first place I've been where I was torn over what to eat.
After this we found a chilled out bar and settled in for a few beers. I had black beer which ...
Today we did a boat trip with Jeronimo Tours around the island. The day started off sunny and we headed to the Blue Lagoon to do some snorkelling. There were a few pretty fish but as the clouds came over the water got a bit merky so the boat headed on to a small empty beach to have lunch. Before we ate we went canoeing off the beach and then chilled on the beach with the rest of the group. The staff cooked an insane BBQ for us ...
... small) down the Island to The Blue Lagoon. This is a small inlet where you can swim and snorkel. The place was like Miami Vice territory with the rich and famous, suntanned bodies hanging off the sleek jet boats and launches, and a guy in a small boat visiting each boat selling food and alcohol (we had a beer). We all jumped off our boat into the water and swam and paddled for ages. Was very warm and the water was like a lukewarm bath and very clear ...
