Ponta dos Ganchos

Ponta dos Ganchos is one of the most exclusive properties in Brazil, a luxurious, yet understated property with excellent service and beautiful surroundings. Located in the far south of Brazil, the hotel is around an hour’s drive from Florianopolis. With far-reaching views across a bay of emerald green waters and forested mountains beyond, this secluded hotel is ideal for those looking for a peaceful retreat.

The contemporary bungalows are nestled on a wooded hillside above a small, but perfectly formed, white sand beach. Mountains rear up behind the resort to add a sense of scale. As there are only 25 rooms, the atmosphere is exclusive and private, and you can enjoy the natural surroundings from your room. All rooms have sea views, their own Jacuzzi or infinity pool on a private veranda, air conditioning, ceiling fans, Wi-Fi, and a fireplace.

If you’re feeling adventurous, there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy, including kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, yoga, tennis, hiking trails, and snorkeling to name a few. For an extra charge, you can go scuba diving or deep-sea fishing. The hotel is set around a small, sheltered bay, which is a perfect spot for swimming or just relaxing on the beach. There’s also an indoor swimming pool, and the spa offers an excellent choice of relaxing and therapeutic treatments. There are three massage tents at the very end of the resort’s peninsula, providing total privacy.

With no fixed serving time, breakfast can be enjoyed at any time, and every Sunday and Wednesday there is a seafood grill, serving locally caught fresh fish. Special dinners can be arranged on the beach, and one couple per night can reserve the private island just offshore, for an exclusive dinner.

Please note that Ponta dos Ganchos does not allow children under the age of 18.
