The exclusive Ponta Dos Ganchos is set on a privately owned peninsula within the Santa Catarina province of Southern Brazil, and is the ultimate in barefoot luxury.
A hop from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires, this romantic hideaway makes dreams a reality: 25 sophisticated and charming bungalows in perfect harmony with the breathtaking scenery. Here the waters of the Emerald coast meet the lush rainforest vegetation in a dazzling display of colour and light.
Its thatched restaurant is situated only ten feet from the beach and delivers fresh seafood snacks to guests while they lounge in the sun.
Aside from serious pampering, Ponta Dos Ganchos offers a fitness centre, cinema, business centre, bar, lounge, games room, tennis court, heated swimming pool, massage tents, SPA by Christian Dior and nature trails. Close to the resort is the best site for scuba diving in South Brazil, Arvoredo Island, in addition to excellent destinations for boat trips, such as Anhatomirim Island and the Baía dos Golfinhos.
This privileged position in between the coast and the rainforest, and reputation of privacy and exclusivity has not gone unnoticed, as Ponta Dos Gancho is a member of Relais & Chateaux.
