Ponta dos Ganchos
Truly top-of-the-range resort with an atmosphere of relaxed exclusivity, occupying its own peninsula with a private cove.
Ponta dos Ganchos is a top-of-the-range resort on the verdant South Brazil coast, suffused with an ambience of relaxed exclusivity and secluded luxury. The hotel is set on a forested peninsula with fantastic 180° vistas of the ocean and its own sandy cove that’s ideal for bathing in summer.
A cluster of 25 very private villas are set amid pine trees and landscaped gardens. We especially love the sumptuously romantic Da Vila bungalows which have their own plunge pool, sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as dazzling ocean views.
Attention has been paid to every detail throughout the resort: the massage room for example, is in a tent of billowing cotton surrounded by trees and overlooking the bay and the indoor pool is kept clean by an innovative chlorine-free method to create a sensation of bathing in fresh water.
Golf carts are available to take you around the undulations of the scenic grounds, and the superb restaurant has a highly creative menu that changes daily.
