#1 of 4 hotels in Governador Celso Ramos
Travellers' Choice
Located on a private peninsula, surrounded by a fisherman village on Brazil's south coast, it is the country's most exclusive beach resort. Within a short distance from Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo or Buenos Aires, this romantic getaway delivers the dream: a ridge of Green Mountains runs down to the clear water of the Emerald Coast, where three little islands meet a stunning white sandy bay. Contemporary interiors in 25 beautiful bungalows mix comfort and refinement on a rustic style and the service that is second to none. The Restaurant lies within meters from the beach, provides a great wine list (with over 220 options); for lunch and dinner a diversified and sophisticated menu is on offer at any hour - the doors only shuts when the last guest leaves. If you are looking for something more romantic, cross a small bridge and get to one of the islands where you will find a gazebo that's specially decorated at night with flowers and candles for only one couple per night have dinner. There's an indoor pool, tennis, games room, snooker room, fitness centre, restaurant, bars, business centre, and even a private cinema. Massages, ecological trails, snorkeling, scuba diving, and boat trips are also on offer. Due to local landscape and in order to maintain calm and tranquility, we do not accept children under 18 years old.

What a fantastic place to relax and unwind, amazing staff, who are a credit to the establishment very friendly but still very professional. A very nice restaurant / bar area right next to the waters edge, very private. A number of walking paths to neighboring beaches / villiages with florianopolis just over an hour away. The resorts driver is very knowledgeable!

We stayed at this exclusive beach resort for five days in December. Our stay was generally positive with a few areas for improvement. Situated in a horseshoe bay with sandy protected beaches, swimming is safe, but the clarity of water was poor and unsuitable for snorkelling, Perhaps this depends on the seasonal current flow. The beach was kept clean, sunbeds and facilities comfortable, and the service is exceptional. Accommodation in our two-bedroom bungalow with sitting room, chimney and good quality audio/visual with streaming and WiFi enabled us to enjoy evening movies by the log fire with good room service. This proved useful because the one restaurant, whilst offering a good choice of dishes and eclectic wine list was lacking in atmosphere and uninviting for dinner. The food is Brazilian style with good quality ingredients but not sophisticated fine dining. The most positive element of the overall offering is the attitude of the staff who will do their utmost to provide everything you need or want during your stay. Our highlight was the morning spent with Chef Nero which began in the organic garden learning about and selecting the local vegetables and herbs through to preparing and cooking a delicious barbeque fish lunch. The resort seemed very quiet, we often felt like we had the entire property to ourselves, exclusivity that it seemed difficult to find in Brazil when I was planning our trip. The resort is aimed as a couple’s destination, families, teenagers and young adults might find there is not enough to do, adding more water sports could provide additional activities. We left feeling satisfied with our expectations having been met over a restful and tranquil few days.

We stayed at the Ponta dos Ganchos for two nights. I will not describe the resort only because I would have to write for several hours. Just one word: OUTSTANDING. I think that officially is classified as 5*, however I fall short if I say it needs to be 6* or even 7*. As a sample, just three (very) minor details: a) We were given a room upgrade without requesting it (This was probably due to the fact that we are members of the LHW). b) We were offered a late check out without requesting it. (*) c) During the evening room service, they left chocolates with our initials engraved. (*) (*) Both were “first time in our lives”. We have been in many places in the five continents. It is very difficult to choose an absolute “first” because each place has special characteristics, but I dare to say that the P dos G is among the “top five”.
