We spent Christmas at a bungalow here. It's not the most luxurious type of rooms (with a private pool), but it comes with the perfect hot tub on your balcony, facing the sunrise, 100% private, and a dry sauna. The cable tv offers great music playlists. The air-conditioning is strong and perfect, and the service is one of the best... More

This is the place to go to get away from it all. The service is truly outstanding. It seemed every time we left our room they went in and tidied up, which was wonderful. Not sure how they knew when we were gone! It's all inclusive which made dining stress free and the food was fantastic! It was winter in... More

This resort was expensive, but it was a magical place to stay. We arrived at 1am, the manager asked us if we were hungry, and when we said yes he whisked us off to the restaurant in a golf cart, where the chef and waiters had stayed after closing time to make us a full meal (scallops etc) even when...

It has taken me a while to post this review but I cannot recall staying in a hotel with such attention to detail. The owners, management and staff have worked out exactly how to make guests relax and get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The rooms/bungalows are spread out perfectly so there are never any interruptions... More

We visited Ponta dos Ganchos on our honeymoon for 4 nights. Let's start with the fact that hotels in Brazil really aren't of the same quality as the rest of the world and certainly don't compare well with the 5 star resorts in Asia. Ponta dos Ganchos was the exception of the rule. Beautiful hotel, in an amazing setting, with... More

We have made a lot of research, before we made the decision to go to Ponta dos Ganchos instead of Bahia since we were looking for a true luxury resort for the end of our South America Roundtrip. The pick up from the airport in FLN was very comfortable, and our driver Leo was very friendly and spoke english very... More

This is a very secluded beach resort and mostly for couples. Only adults are accepted, which guarantees a quiet and relaxing time there. Bungalows with beautiful breathtaking views but could be updated. Didn't like the quality of the bed but the bedsheets were top quality. Amazing tasting breakfast that changed everyday as well as the menu in the restaurant. Good... More

We stayed at Ponta dos Ganchos for 6 nights in March and spent an enjoyable time in this boutique resort which we found to be incredibly tranquil, idyllically set and very luxurious indeed. We flew into Florianopolis Airport where we met and transferred by car in just under an hour. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted, with a glass of... More

Pros -Summary: Fantastic hotel, very expensive but worth it. Only sour note is we were charged for the Nespresso coffee pods we used. The cost itself was not an issue, it just felt like the hotel was nickel and diming for a +US$1,000/night room by insisting on paying for coffee that was in our room and that we had made... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
