Ponta dos GanchosFlorianopolis, Brazil
This Relais & Chateaux hotel is one of Brazil’s most exclusive hotels. It is the perfect romantic hideaway and a popular destination for honeymooners. Within easy reach of Florianopolis and its international airport, it is ideally located for a few days of total relaxation after enjoying urban living in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro.
The accommodation consists of 25 private bungalows in wooded gardens with outstanding views of the emerald sea. Simply decorated with contemporary furnishings, the higher category rooms have their own private pools and jacuzzis.
The breakfast tasting menu is an inspiration and the perfect way to start your day, before heading off sailing, on a boat trip, or even diving at Arvoredo island, one of Brazil’s best scuba experiences. For guests that want to relax, a delicious barbeque lunch is a welcome interruption to a day passing the hours away in total bliss, before heading off to the hotel’s private beach for the afternoon.
After a visit to the spa settle down for the evening in the hotel’s excellent restaurant to enjoy a sumptuous à la carte meal, accompanied by some of South America’s best wines. For the ultimate in romantic dining, we particularly recommend a private dinner on the island, which is connected to the hotel by a walkway over the sea.
