Ponta dos Ganchos Resort was inaugurated in 2001 and is one of the most luxurious resorts in Brazil. It was granted the highest ratings for beach resorts in the Guia 4 Rodas, the most important travel guide in Brazil, for several years. Nestled between two charming fishing villages and surrounded by the sea on three sides, the Ponta dos Ganchos Exclusive Resort offers the warmth and personalized service of a guest house together with the sophisticated infrastructure of a 5 star hotel. Above all, Ponta dos Ganchos is exclusive; there are only 20 comfortable and spacious bungalows in an area of over 80,000 m2. With over three members of staff per bungalow, the resort aims to offer customized service for each guest. All meals (including breakfast) are served at any hour of the day!
The Ponta dos Ganchos is situated in Governador Celso Ramos, Santa Catarina, in southern 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. Santa Catarina enjoys a subtropical climate with an average temperature of 27ºC during the summer months (December to March) and 21ºC during spring and autumn.
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. It is a slice of old Brazil with an emphasis on traditional customs such as lace making, livestock, fishing, and mussel farming. The resort’s daily rate includes all meals (including snacks on the beach or in the bar) and all non-alcoholic drinks, use of all nautical equipment, and access to all associated areas (tennis court, heated pool, cinema, fitness room etc).
