2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Located on a private peninsula, surrounded by a fisherman village on Brazil's south coast, it is the country's most exclusive beach resort. Within a short distance from Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo or Buenos Aires, this romantic getaway delivers the dream: a ridge of Green Mountains runs down to the clear water of the Emerald Coast, where three little islands meet a stunning white sandy bay. Contemporary interiors in 25 beautiful bungalows mix comfort and refinement on a rustic style and the service that is second to none. The Restaurant lies within meters from the beach, provides a great wine list (with over 220 options); for lunch and dinner a diversified and sophisticated menu is on offer at any hour - the doors only shuts when the last guest leaves. If you are looking for something more romantic, cross a small bridge and get to one of the islands where you will find a gazebo that's specially decorated at night with flowers and candles for only one couple per night have dinner. There's an indoor pool, tennis, games room, snooker room, fitness centre, restaurant, bars, business centre, and even a private cinema. Massages, ecological trails, snorkeling, scuba diving, and boat trips are also on offer. Due to local landscape and in order to maintain calm and tranquility, we do not accept children under 18 years old.

Atlanta, Georgia2 contributions
This resort met and exceeded our expectations. The service is impeccable and the attention to detail is one of a kind. At any given time, we felt like the only two people on the resort. When we visited, there were only five other couples there including ourselves. We like quiet vacations because we both have high stress, high demanding careers so it’s important for us to sleep in and not feel rushed for breakfast or anything. This resort lets you plan your stay according to what you feel like doing. Room service is until 1am and it’s an extensive menu so late night snacks were always available. We were able to eat breakfast whenever we felt like it, be it at 12 noon when we finally would leave our room. The breakfast menu is a tasting menu so it changes daily. Some choices were better than others but all in all, if you have an adventurous palate, you’ll be satisfied. There is an option for continental breakfast as well. Also whatever you like, you can always ask for more being as breakfast is included in your stay. Lunch and dinner were very good. Again, be open to trying new things and you’ll be surprised at how good it tastes. The chefs take their time preparing you well curated meals that satiate every palate. This is funny but I must say, the housekeeping must have walkie talkies because it’s like they know exactly when you leave your room and by the time you come back, it’s been cleaned or refreshed. I thought that was very thoughtful and just another way they made our stay that much more enjoyable. The staff is AMAZING! In particular Gabriel and Tania. We would have long talks about pretty much anything and they were so helpful with whatever we needed. All of the staff were great but those two went above and beyond for my husband and I and we truly appreciated it. We never go back to the same place twice as we are currently trying to visit a country in every continent, but the south of Brazil currently has my heart and Ponta dos Ganchos will see us again. I loved everything about our stay. Thank you so much!!

The week we spend on our honeymoon there has been the best hotel stay we ever experienced. For work I stayed in over 100 hotels and the service here is by far the best. Everybody is super friendly and tries to make every wish of yours come true. Special thanks to Tania and Isadora for making our stay even more special.

A hotel experience could not be better than what we had in Ponta dos Ganchos hotel. Much more than a common hotel, it offers a totally different and fenomenal experience in all aspects: out of this world rooms with hot tub, private pool and an impressive sea view (and more depending on your choice), an almost private beach experience with very calm water, delicious and special food (including a breakfast tasting menu) and the best hotel service you can find, doing everything to make you comfortable all the time.

I have no words to describe, I swear!!!! Having travelled through over 60 countries, experienced luxury hotels around the world, experienced also the different hospitality in all those places, I must say, myself and my partner are incredibly impressed with the overall experience in Ponta dos Ganchos!!! The check-in was smooth, they did the standard, offered refreshing towels, a drink, but the warm welcome was that they already called myself and my partner by our names, had genuine and not at all evasive chats, showed how happy they were to have us staying with them. The attention to details were mesmerising - arriving to our bungalow we had personalised messages, fruits, chocolates and our private pool had been climatized to our delight! The next day after our day out and about around the property (hikes, beach, boat), we arrived back in the bedroom to a lovely LP Champagne, chilled and again, the pool ready to use and climatized - it was Valentine's and this gesture was the cherry on the top, what a lovely touch Unfortunately I am not good with keeping names in my head, but one in particular is Tania, she was such a lovely person to talk to and really took care of us. All staff were extremely friendly, polite like I have never seen, knowledgable and courteous. The breakfast was again a surprise and delight, they offer the tasting menu ALL DAY LONG, nowhere else in the world I was offered such flexibility, its imperative that in order to feel relaxed in such paradise, we don't feel obliged to be up at certain time, have to eat at certain time, they consider that their international guests have to deal with jet-lag etc. The bungalow was cosy, the bed was super comfortable, great taste in decor and choice of furniture, the exterior felt so private, in the middle of bambus, quiet, really EXCLUSIVE! I cant thank you all enough and I am POSITIVE I will make a trip back to this stunning place. THANK YOU team

What a fantastic place to relax and unwind, amazing staff, who are a credit to the establishment very friendly but still very professional. A very nice restaurant / bar area right next to the waters edge, very private. A number of walking paths to neighboring beaches / villiages with florianopolis just over an hour away. The resorts driver is very knowledgeable!

London, United Kingdom47 contributions52 helpful votes
We stayed at this exclusive beach resort for five days in December. Our stay was generally positive with a few areas for improvement. Situated in a horseshoe bay with sandy protected beaches, swimming is safe, but the clarity of water was poor and unsuitable for snorkelling, Perhaps this depends on the seasonal current flow. The beach was kept clean, sunbeds and facilities comfortable, and the service is exceptional. Accommodation in our two-bedroom bungalow with sitting room, chimney and good quality audio/visual with streaming and WiFi enabled us to enjoy evening movies by the log fire with good room service. This proved useful because the one restaurant, whilst offering a good choice of dishes and eclectic wine list was lacking in atmosphere and uninviting for dinner. The food is Brazilian style with good quality ingredients but not sophisticated fine dining. The most positive element of the overall offering is the attitude of the staff who will do their utmost to provide everything you need or want during your stay. Our highlight was the morning spent with Chef Nero which began in the organic garden learning about and selecting the local vegetables and herbs through to preparing and cooking a delicious barbeque fish lunch. The resort seemed very quiet, we often felt like we had the entire property to ourselves, exclusivity that it seemed difficult to find in Brazil when I was planning our trip. The resort is aimed as a couple’s destination, families, teenagers and young adults might find there is not enough to do, adding more water sports could provide additional activities. We left feeling satisfied with our expectations having been met over a restful and tranquil few days.
