Ponta Dos Ganchos Resort

Santa Catarina, Brazil


An adults -only retreat, Ponta Dos Ganchos resort, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, occupies a privately owned peninsula along the southern Brazilian coast. Just 25 sophisticated bungalows (with hammocks for lazy afternoon siestas), blending naturally with the stunning local scenery, make for an intimate, romantic ambience. Activities, including fishing, kayaking and snorkeling, emphasize the local culture and natural offerings. When it’s time to indulge, head to one of the tempting massage tents or the elegant restaurant, where Santa Catarina's famous oysters are served alongside fine wines.


Ponta dos Ganchos is situated in Governador Celso Ramos, Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil. Colonized by Azoreans, Germans and Italians, Santa Catarina is very different from the stereotypical Brazil of coffee, samba and carnival. Currently little known outside of Brazil, the coast of Santa Catarina is considered one of the most beautiful in Brazil and is the most popular holiday destination for Brazilians and Argentineans. Governador Celso Ramos is a region immersed in history and tradition, dotted with fishing villages and sparsely populated with descendants of the original Azorean settlers. Situated on a small point nestling between two charming fishing villages and surrounded on 3 sides by the sea of the Emerald Coast.
