Located on a private peninsula, Ponta dos Ganchos is surrounded by the stunning waters of southern Brazil’s Emerald Coast. Close by are charming fishing villages, occupied by descendants of the first Azorean immigrants to inhabit the Santa Catarina coast. Set against a dramatic, secluded backdrop of verdant rainforest edged by a sandy bay, the hotel envelopes guests in unpretentious luxury and ease. Accommodations, in sophisticated and charming bungalows, boast a décor that is simple and uncluttered, in soothing neutral colors with big beds and fine Egyptian cotton bedding, ensuring serene relaxation. The sheer comfort of the facilities, the perfection of the cuisine and the quality of the services are the hotel’s trademarks.
