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.

... in the waterfall (moments after a snake had been seen in the water!) We continued a short way on to another beach to enjoy another picnic lunch. Again, we decided to abandon our original taxi boat plan, having really enjoyed the morning's walk. Chris stepped up in Pedro's absence to set a quick pace... Very sweaty. A chilled afternoon of reading, a beach side dinner, and an air conditioned room throughout the night, rounded off our time on Ilha Grande ...
... 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 ...
... to the samba bar we'd attempted to go to earlier in the week. Other than getting ripped off for a $10 drink we were told was 'gratis' it was a really fun night. Everyone dances together and the locals come and ask to samba with you for short bursts of tracks - with a lot of guidance for us! I wouldn't say we mastered the samba but it was great fun and the locals loved us so we had a good ...
... 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 ...
... in 1994. In the past decade Ilha Grande has been actively developing its tourism industry and been involved in several key ecological preservation projects. It is one of the best places to experience the rapidly diminishing Atlantic rainforest. Upon recommendation from Fede we hired luggage porters (Carreteiro) to take our luggage to our pousada, Cachoeria. After a short hike up a fairly steep hill it turned out to be £2 well spent! ...
