Fodor's Expert Review Ponta dos Ganchos

Rua Eupídeo Alves do Nascimento 104 , Governador Celso Ramos, Santa Catarina, 88190-000, Brazil Fodor's Choice

Taking luxury to new levels, this little patch of paradise has its own small beach, helipad, a private island for candlelit dinners, and an infinity pool and/or hot tub in each of the 25 Balinese-style villas. It is the best blow-the-budget choice for a romantic getaway. Either way, you’ll need to leave the kids at home; it’s over-18s-only here. Whether you kick back on a double sun lounger for the day, or make the most of the facilities—Canadian canoes, stand-up paddles, masseuses, a private cinema, or a guide for deserted beach hikes—it’s entirely up to you. The attentive staff is never far away to satisfy your ever whim. Be prepared to walk up and down steep hills to get around the resort; or else just call for a golf buggy to fetch you.
