Ponta dos Ganchos

A remote hideaway surrounded by emerald waters, this beautiful little hotel with 25 freestanding suites is perfect for a romantic getaway. Heavenly and cosy, you can both enjoy laying back on the sandy shores, take a wonder into the jungle and swim under the waterfalls and if you’re there between June and November you may spot a whale swimming by.


Though this hotel is remote, there is a variety of ways you can reach your paradise. Located on a secluded stretch of southern Brazil, you can fly in from Florianopolis, then it’s just a 50 minute drive to the hotel, and you can enjoy the scenery out the window as you go. For those wishing to arrive in style, the Ponta dos Ganchos has its own helipad and a private jetty. So drop in from the air or splash your way along the coast and begin your trip in the way you mean to go on.

Your room

Decorated in terracotta shades which contrast with the emerald sea, all of the hotel’s suites are flooded with natural light. All boast a king sized bed, a hammock out on the veranda and L’Occtane products in the bathroom. The height of privacy and sophistication, some rooms are equipped with a sauna, Jacuzzi and infinity pool overlooking the sea. Kick back and relax in your utopia.

Why we like it

This is the ultimate place for romance. Beautifully remote, the two of you can escape the concrete forest of the city in favour of palm fringed beaches. For an incredible, unforgettable evening you can have a private dinner on a small island. Lit by candles and moonlight, it’ll be an enchanting experience.
