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.

[...] The island, which is roadless and off-limits to cars, features over 150 km of ...
... starving & for a laugh Mikey & I ate half of his burger. He walks in about 10 minutes later saying he's just been mugged with a kayaking Oar. Apparently a guy told him he had something, took Kane to his house & then came out with an oar demanding his money! He had 30 Reais on him which they took. Then he returns to his half eaten burger on the bed, lucky he was alright but so many ...
With the World Cup over it was time to get back to travelling. We headed on a bus out of Rio for the last time and then had to get a boat to Ilha Grande. Ilha Grande was one of those places that was recommended by loads of people I met travelling. On the boat I was surprised that there were Germans on there already back to normal life. If England had just one the ...
... to meet us up. He had a wagon kind of thing to take care of our bags. But as the true backpacker I am, I carried my bag. It was quite a distance and a lot uphill. But some of the guys helped to push it up. But they all had to pay him 2 dollars each. Which could seem a little unfair, since some people helped to push it. The pousada was nice. I'm sharing with Prakesh and Eugene again. But I got the upper floor with my own double bed, so it's almost ...
