Ponta dos Ganchos Resort, inaugurated in 2001, is one of the newest and most luxurious resorts in Brazil. Situated on a small point nestling between two charming fishing villages and surrounded on 3 sides by the sea of the Emerald Coast, Ponta dos Ganchos 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 25 comfortable and spacious “bungalows” in an area of over 80,000 m2. With over 3 staff per bungalow we aim to offer a service customized for each guest. Brazilian hardwood and natural stone characterize the 25 bungalows designed by our award-winning architect. The rustic style is complemented by modern conveniences including air conditioning, LCD TV (with local and satellite channels), DVD players, safe with electric plug for your laptop, direct dial telephone, Wi-Fi Internet connection, music system, King Size bed, wardrobe, hair dryer, minibar, wine cellar, Nespresso coffee and fireplace. Six types of bungalows are offered: Anhatomirim, Arvoredo, Da Vila, Especial da Vila,Esmeralda and Especial Esmeralda, all with a spectacular sea view.
Ponta dos Ganchos possesses an extensive infrastructure including indoor heated swimming pool, tennis court, games room, snooker room, fitness centre, cinema, restaurant, bars, and a business centre. Electric cars (silent and non-polluting) are available for internal transport. All efforts have been made to preserve the natural beauty of the area – there is only 5000m2 of construction in a total area of 80,000 m2, environmentally friendly waste treatment is employed and a program of reforestation is under way.
At the heart of the Resort the Beach Restaurant provides drinks, lunch and dinner at any hour – the doors only shut when the last guest leaves. A diversified and sophisticated menu is on offer, emphasizing local dishes of Santa Catarina, in particular freshly caught fish, prawns, oysters and mussels.
A variety of activities are available including canoe, Stand up Paddle, boat trips, diving lessons, ecological trails, running track and massage. The highlights of course are nautical. With the islands of the Arvoredo Biological Marine Reserve less than one hour away, we have available one of the best diving options on the Brazilian coast and the Island of Anhatomirim houses one of the oldest forts in Brazil.
Ponta dos Ganchos is situated in Governador Celso Ramos, Santa Catarina in the south of 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 descendents of the original Azorean settlers. It is a slice of old Brazil with an emphasis on traditional occupations such as lace making, livestock, fishing and mussel farming.
With the objective of maintaining a climate of total tranquility we do not accept children below 18 years.
